Nigeria Women vs African American Women

Nigeria Women vs African American Women
Nigerian or maybe African America...I don't
Nigerian or maybe African America...I don't
Nigerian or maybe African America...I don't

Ok. I’m going to keep this short and simple. Let’s face it… If you live in America you can’t help but notice the stack difference between our girls (yankee naija girls) and “Akata” girls – ages 18-32. I’ve come to accept that the only similarity nowadays is that they are both women who happen to be black. As vain as it may be, I got to thinking about who is better looking, more intelligent, physical difference and stuff like that. Let me elaborate a little.

Before I start, you all should realize that we are all made in the image of God and all that good stuff, and in every race or ethnicity, there are beautiful and ugly ones. So when I write my opinion about what I belive it is in terms of generalization.

Physical Beauty: Ok, hands down African American girls are prettier… think about it. This doesn’t mean all Nigerian girls are ugly and all akata girls are pretty… far from it. All i’m saying is that if you randomly select ten akata girls and ten naija babes, chances are there would be a lot more facially pretty akata girls than naija girls. At this point you might be saying, “Ooohh it’s make-up and what not.” No!! It isn’t, whether natural or all made up they are just prettier and more exotic-looking which helps a lot. Just think about it… a typical Bose, or Nneka vs Lashonda or Toya. Hey… I’m just saying.

Body: Africans, more especially West African Women (big ups to Liberian girls) have been predisposed to having big T & A (titties and ass)… and no one has contested that fact. But who do you think have better bodies… Akata girls or Nigerian girls??? What do you think? I’m on the fence about this because Akata girls can hold their own too… you know. And in addition, when akata babes are blessed with T&A, they tend to have a smaller waist, giving them that almost perfect figure 8 shape. Most of the Yankee Naija girls (and naija girls in general) don’t have that cinched waist and when they do, the T&A ain’t that endowed. Once again, it’s all personal opinion on what is considered a “perfect” body.

Intelligence: After common entrance, Junior WAEC, SSCE, JAM, A levels, O levels, SAT, TOEFL, and the list goes on and on… our Nigerian women are far more intelligent. Deny it all you want, they just are. Period.

Attitude: Another one I’m on the fence with… what do you think? Remember Naija girls think the world can not function without their presence, and with that pride comes attitude. Then again, Akata girls are… well, what can I say?… you just don’t want to start a fight with them.

I said I was going to keep this short and simple, but I guess I was wrong. There are numerous random differences between those heavenly creatures, like who dresses better? who is more of a label whore? who makes a better wife? (in general), who is more of a risk taker? etc. What do you think? Feel free to let it out.

    I must disagree with you gan. I love mathematics so here goes. Nigerian population Approx. 135MM, Afro-American population including "Carribean/African diaspora" approx. 42MM (14% of entire pop.) Lets go half on the gender: Naija girls equals 67MM, Akata 21MM. Still with me? Even if we say all akata girls are fine are you telling me less than a third of my naija sisters are fine? Based on numbers alone your conclusion is not good, plus me I like my fine naija sisters too much not to defend their luscious au naturele beauty.

    • blood money Jun 5, 2009 at 8:17 pm

      Pato, no disrespect but your analogy is flawed or at least misguided. I think the author is trying to say that proportionally speaking, akata babes are sexier than 9ja babes. Of course there are more pretty 9ja babes than akata babes given that you have aprox. 3 times more 9ja babes, but you are more likely to pick out a sexy akata babe than a sexy 9ja babe if you are picking at random. And, oh…I happen to agree with the auther(sorry i dont know your name) akata babes are 'generally' sexier than 9ja babes. Sorry sistas.

    • stephen Apr 24, 2011 at 7:08 pm

      niaja women are the best. am in america but am definately goin to marry a true and well cutured african lady

    • Pianki Jan 12, 2015 at 10:15 am

      Obviously the author has never been in West Africa. There is a vast difference with the women there compared to those in the US and I say West African women wins hands down in the categories pointed out.

  • Lenn Jun 5, 2009 at 3:09 pm

    I dont know what city you live in or maybe you just need to get your eyes checked, but there is no way in hell "akata" girls are prettier than naija girls, and I dont care what consider to be beautiful…naija girls are prettier on any given day. Let's not even go into the obesity issue in this country where 5 in 10 (maybe more) are clinically obese. I'm being totally objective here and not basing this on the fact that I am a naija girl (born and raised), but this post was a whole bunch of bs. I'm thinking of my 5 closest naija girlfriends and african american girls I run into everyday (work, gym, grocey store etc), I'm sorry, but there is no comparison. Anyway, we are all entitled to our opinions 🙂

  • boo Jun 5, 2009 at 4:21 pm

    nonsense… spend the same amount of facial care, hair treatment, nail treatment… Look, almost all natural born nigeria put on T.V becomes as pretty as akata girls… Naija gurls spend more time under the books and less time under the hair dryer. In todays world some men who became women(transgender men) with all the chemical treatment look better than women, even the akata.. what u see..

    Ogini? Well I can agree that in terms of facial akata people are more exotic looking thanks to slavery. We have fine girls too, we are more intelligent, we have a more presentable attitude, we cook and clean good, some of us hehe, we definstely make better wives and we are label whore.. Ask any jand niaja girl.

  • Yves Jun 6, 2009 at 7:47 am

    I suggest you take a look at real naija babes in naija!!!! You will not believe ur eyes if you go to Benin. not to mention the hausa ones……pls naija any day.

    • Aribaba Jun 7, 2009 at 8:15 am

      Omo… we're talking about Naija babes in Yankee… babes in naija are def prettier

  • yankee naija Jun 6, 2009 at 8:10 am

    I'm a naija girl and I'm prettier, sexier, curvier and smarter than an akata girl any day. Oh and did I mention that I am classier, and more enlightened. And this saying goes for all my naija girlfriends. So, dude I don't know where you've been hanging but you need to hang with the right crowd…quit functioning in the ghetto circles.

  • LoloBloggs Jun 6, 2009 at 9:41 am

    Trying very very hard not to be offended by this. The very nature of the comparison shows the sad state of affairs in this world.

    I'm pretty certain your idea of 'prettier' for akata girls based on exotic features basically means, if you're mixed race (as most akatas are) and possibly more european looking you are sexier. SERIOUSLY FLAWED COMPARISON

    Come on girls, we are way smarter than coming out with this kind of unnecessary nonsense.

  • Nwa nma Jun 6, 2009 at 3:06 pm

    @Blood Money, please make you sit down.

    Now, Jaguda, I really would like to see your picture first and foremost because I think how fine you are has a lot to do with how you judge the rest of the world.

    I have seen some pretty ugly akata women and some pretty ugly naija girls…it's all genetics, period. I come from beautiful people so I don't feel that Akata girls are prettier, I feel like myself, my cousins, my aunts are natural Beauties with brain power to boot.

    Nigeria has always been consumed with the half cast bs.You have to be mixed to be considered beautiful. Or you have to bleach your skin to be beautiful.

    Al in all. you cannot make such a generalized statement about beauty. Missy Elliot is Akata , is she hot? Vivica Fox is Akata , is she hot? Jennifer Hudson is akata , is she hot? the answer is " beauty is in the eye of the beholder" . In my book , this chicks ain't hot.

    And another part you don't know about missed people is the emotional turmoil they are forced to deal with.Some people expect them to pick one race over the other and its straight wrong.

    Unfortnately , I have lived in the states for a long time so I don't really know that many Naija celebrities to name…but I come from gorgeous people and as I said in the very beginning of this response, the way we judge beauty stems directly from our family history, so I have come to the conclusion, you don't come from attractive people.

  • lady Godiva Jun 6, 2009 at 4:07 pm

    Ode, more exotic looking isnt european. Anybody depending on genes and other factors can look exotic, as society defines it…. Beauty is in teh beholder eyes…as everyone should know. And you should have paid more attention to the 2nd paragraph. It was meant to invoke a disscussion, so because ur idea does not agree with the writer doesnt make it flawed… As vain and unnecessary as the article maybe, its plain and simple…akata girls or NIgerian girls, who do you tink is prettier, etc.

    I wonder if it would be better for you if Nigerian Girls were considered prettier. cos i dont see you or anyone debating the "intelligent" part of the article….knowing there are dumb and smart ones..everywhere. but as the write wrote its from personal generalization. duh!!Dollo.


    • Nwa nma Jun 6, 2009 at 8:55 pm

      Ignorance is not bliss. And for the sake of argument….the writer should've steered clear of generalization .

      Again, the writer must be a spun of some ugly naija's because obviously someone got some insecurities and it's written all over her article.

      And for your pathetic ass to have the nerve to try to defend her bs is equally laughable. Now baba, when it comes to intelligence I bet I way more intelligent than her pathetic ass and more beautiful as well..

      I am more than triple threat and i was not raised in the dilapidated huts in naija…manisons my man.

      poor naijas….it seems the british should've never left. they should've stayed to make you feel more special.

    • Nwa nma Jun 6, 2009 at 8:59 pm

      lady godiva.

      intelligent? which bush backyard where y'all brought up?

      intelligence is not a racially motivated attribute…genetics sweetie…

      that's how dumb this entire article is .

  • NaijaBabe Jun 6, 2009 at 9:14 pm

    Lol at this topic! Well I agree that most AA girls (randomly chosen) are prettier. However, Naija girls have better bodies, are more intelligent hands down, and have better attitudes. Not to mention, more religious, make better wives, more successful, etc. So they can have to physical beauty category but remember beauty fades…

  • abu Jun 7, 2009 at 7:07 am

    Even though i have seen some really wowoooo akata babes, i'll proudly say that a random sampling of pretty babes from a pool of akata/naija babes will produce a more akata than naija. But anyday anytime, omo na naija babe i go marry!!!!! When u combine d general qualities a man looks 4 in his wife, naija babes go win.

  • Aribaba Jun 7, 2009 at 8:29 am

    Wow… People are sensitive oo. I guess many of our naija babes & guys were so consumed with the fact that the writer said akata babes are finer (which I agree with btw) that many decided not to even analyze the rest of the article. The fact is I'll take a Naija babe any day over and akata babe, cos of the smarts, wife skills, attitude, body, everything else that makes the package 95% full.

    I read through all the comments and most people are bitching and whining about akata babes are ghetto, and ugly and such… would it have helped if the writer said naija babes are finer, and akata babes are more intelligent?.. exactly… As a naija person, you'll always think that ur people are the finest, smartest, best bodies, best attitudes, make the best wives… nah us carry first all the time abi? Wrong, so please let's face reality, ok. Not all naija babes are fine, and not all akata babes are fine, but as the writer said… when u do a random selection of naija babes in yankee vs akata babes U'll get more fine akata babes than naija babes. That's my opinion.

  • lenn Jun 7, 2009 at 12:14 pm

    How 'bout we flip this article and talk about "akata" guys and nigerian guys in yankee? I would mos def say that african american guys are more good looking than naija guys on any given day! There are some good looking naija guys, but honestly (and ladies, I know y'all do this too!) when I see a good looking naija guy, my first instinct is "he must be african-american" lol. Sorry guys! That being said, I love my naija men and would pick them (for husband material) over an african-american on any give day (all things being equal sha lol). And I still think the writer is wrong, naija girls are prettier, and exotic looking doesnt necessarily mean prettier…it may just being "different looking"

  • QB Jun 7, 2009 at 7:05 pm



  • Funmi Jun 7, 2009 at 11:29 pm

    Lol… People take things sooo personally! I'm nigerian and I admit that even though the article focuses on generalisations,the random sample thing is definitely true. Don't think people should take it that seriously- I'm guessing the writer was not trying to start a philosophical debate so some people might need to chill.

  • Anonymous Jun 8, 2009 at 6:25 am

    Talk about insecurities yo!! If African American girls is considered pretty by the writer, then why so defensive. By the way, i think "akata" is derogatory. MY OPINION.

    This is some funny stuff, and i think what this forum needs ARE MORE AFRICAN AMERICAN WOMEN, SO THEY CAN DEFEND THEIR TITLE. LET THE DEBATE BEGIN!!!

  • LoloBloggs Jun 8, 2009 at 7:52 am

    Your Honour, I object!

    I've just blogged on why I'm not happy about this comparison! Follow the link!

  • lady Godiva Jun 8, 2009 at 9:57 am

    After reading lolobrigs blog, this is what i got…..

    Since i find akata girls prettier than 9ja girls….this means i have a low self esteem *kick rocks*…to bad for me and my low self esteem (i wish i was like lolobrigs,with her mountain top esteem i better cut myself arghh!!!)

    But wait oo, I also think Nigerian girls are prettier than girls from southern africa..(just my opinion oo..this is not an arsenal for WWII)…does this also mean i have high self esteem….NOooo I think the low and high,, balance each other out…right lolo? YOU SEEM TO HAVE A MASTERs IN ESTEEMOLOGY..TELL ME PROF??WHT d fuck is wrong..IS MY ESTEEM CONFUSED.

    Give it a rest already, and stop confusing self esteem with personal opinion. And soo what sef? Who ever finds someone pretty or no…is no deal at all.

    • LoloBloggs Jun 8, 2009 at 3:29 pm

      Your comments make you sound quite juvenile. If you don't have self esteem issues, I'm very happy for you. Well done. You might want to read my post again to make sure you actually know what I said as opposed to what you're making up in your head because you refuse to let go of an unnecessary ideology.

      BTW, the name is LoloBloggs.

  • Original Mgbeke Jun 8, 2009 at 11:06 am

    With all dues respect, may I just say that this is one of the dumbest posts I have ever read on this website? I mean, what is the essence of this?

    So what if African American women are prettier, or Nigerian women are sexier? I don't get how it adds value to the price of crayfish in the market?

    I'm not even trippin' cos she said AA women are hotter…I'm trippin' cos she has this comparison in the first friggin' place.

    Have you guys ever read a Glamour magazine where white women were comparing blonde women vs. brunette women?

    Nothing but pure foolishness and ignorance in my opinion.

  • coco Jun 8, 2009 at 12:51 pm

    lol, this is a funny article. I dont aggree with the authors view but its funny. If its controvery she was looking for she got it.

  • Aribaba Jun 8, 2009 at 8:37 pm

    I'm still confused as to the problem people have with the article… is it that the writer thinks Akata babes are prettier than Naija babes in yankee or that there is a comparison in the first place?

    To be honest… I don't think this is any different from regular conversation people have every day… Even naija women here compare Akata guys to naija guys… on the regular.

  • undiclosed Jun 9, 2009 at 6:57 am

    Does anyone realize the author is refering to yankee naija girls. LOLOLOL, hahaha, yes some yankee naija girls are not very attractive.Big deal, Author, come to jand and see how we roll maybe u'll change your mind. Better yet Land Imo state.

  • lux Jun 9, 2009 at 2:00 pm

    So when is one babe like that going to defend herself, after all these jabs at her. In support of her, i think akata girls are prettier. its all subjective. lovely post, it made a good round table disscussion with me and my collegues.

  • Naija Bekee Jun 9, 2009 at 3:21 pm

  • Licious Jun 9, 2009 at 6:52 pm

    I dont know why alot of you are vexing! So what if she said Akata chicks are finer(which they actually are) does is change how we all feel about ourselves and the value and worth and pride that comes with being a Naija chick. I am sure its all of you that your wor wor is screaming from loudspeaker that are vexing..fines babes like me..see this and laugh…hiss.

    Article writer! will be fine!

  • love Jun 9, 2009 at 9:31 pm

    lol@ Licious comment. It's true, universities do carry out surveys and research about stuff like this, even as silly as whether blond do have more fun. So no, i dont think its a silly article. Not especially when the writer declared it personal opinion, on the other hand if people get personal about it too…its also their personal opinion. I think its a funny article, and the comments, hilarious. You should do more like this if it shock value you are after author. But just out of curiousity i would love to see how the writer looks.

    @undisclosed, Better shut your mouth about Imo girls, cos those boyfriend stealers (personal experience) are nothing bu smoke and dust. LOL

  • Bliss Chic Jun 10, 2009 at 8:45 am

    I am responding to this article just to give some balance to this thing from the "other side." I know the article was written in fun and from the perspective of the writer. As interesting as the article is, it is also offensive to both parties. Being an African American woman I have never compared myself to African women and neither has my friends. I don't feel there is a major difference between the two groups in terms of the listed areas because we all have similar roots. I have never thought I was prettier or African girls were smarter. That's foolishness! I have a Ph.D. so no matter what culture a female is from, the likelihood she is smarter than me is going to be lower. In the same manner, there are beautiful African women that I feel are way more exotic and appealing than myself. The comparision does not need to be made. I am proud of my African sisters just as much as I am proud of my African American sisters. The world works so hard to divide us, let's not help them out by dividing ourselves.

    • Perplexed Jul 30, 2009 at 10:31 am

      I usually do not respond to blogs after reading them because most of the time, the people that respond are irrational and just don’t have any common sense; yes, I understand sense is not common : ).

      I just wanted to respond in consensus with your last sentence about the world working hard to divide us. It is so true and I see it everyday as you do I am sure. Being a PhD and almost always being the only one of your kind in a group of your peers is not easy. What is worse, is reading such articles that confirm certain stereotypes that continue to feed into the division.

      Keep up the positive attitude and hopefully one day, black people no matter what continent they come from will unite and represent one another in a continuous positive light.

    I’m highly disappointed in the jaguda team for approving this article on their site..this is absolute craziness… Its one thing for this writer to think in a not too seasoned manner and its another thing for jaguda to approve it for its readers.
    I totally disagree with all the comparisons made here…I have met a lot of drop dead gorgeous hot Naija chics and I have met a lot of hot brained African Americans so you really can’t draw a straight line across.

  • Sanka Jun 15, 2009 at 6:50 pm

    Why una dey drink panadol for another person headache? Some people are taking this "thing" too serious like their names were actually mentioned. Beauty they say is in the eye of the behold…you can't change how folks like their women, stoping fuming & fussing over some article on the internet, its not that serious, biko!

  • njideka Jun 15, 2009 at 8:03 pm

    first of all, how can u say that african women are not as pretty as akata? thats sayin ur mama is on our level. why wont akata girls look the way they look when all of them are mixed with so many races? and they get pissed when they are asked if they are mixed with something. i hope say u go change ur mind cos u'll have a daughter and someone will call her ugly. africans are beautiful and we are not mixed with nothing at all. as for attitude akata women are haters yo. they have the worst attitude and they envy the typical successful smart african women. they complain too much upon say they have more opportunity than us that get picked on for being african

    okay i gotta weight in here. I thinks its funny the author "1 yeye babe like dat" was sittin around feelin insecure and this is all you could think up to boost your self confidence, send me an of line message i have words of encouragement for you!

    1. beauty is a good thing but @ what price? dullards sometimes get it twisted sometimes those that glitter have da worst attitude & hometraining.

    2. there is no comparison.(full stop) There never will be.

    3. I love my life on my worst day I sit and look for the beauty in people. try my love and do the same.

    4. I think black people are the greatest thing on dis earth. We have to love ourselves and teach our daughters to love themselves as well, DO U THINK THIS ARTICLE DID THAT? Many of the previous generations where able to overcome slavery,degradation,& every atrocity imaginable do 2 color (dark/light) and origin (plantation slaves/african slaves) why cant we.

  • slim Aug 10, 2009 at 4:07 pm

    I think it is unfair to compare akata babes with naija babes simply because the former are mixed along the line with white,red indian, chinese or hispanic blood. The mixture produces exotic looks no matter their shape and size. Aborigines of any race do not stand a chance with these mixtures.

    As for attitudes–I think the akata babes are at the bottom of the rung. Even their men treat them like crap– both the educated elites and the ghetto chicks. Their attitude to life stinks generally.

    When it comes to intelligence, I see past their crappy behaviour to discover there is a good brain in there if only they could re orient themselves.

    If i were a prolific writer I would describe what my soul sees when it peers through the looking glass of my eyes. I would write of the red clay on the roads in my village, they think the red undertone of my skin is made-up. I would write of the the waves that roll from my breast to my waist around my back-side down my muscular thighs still rolling over my calfs and to my feet. I would giggle but proudly describe the dangerous jungle that is my hair. And still i would write you telling you how the features of my face are mysterious like the presence of the four fathers of my land.

    I am happy for all those that are mixed, half-cast, akata, ect. more power to ya. But i will always be proud of the love my parents shared, its the sweetest thing and it is what I see when i look in the mirror. I see generations of love. When i see Africans i see that same love rich in culture, struggle, and perseverance. When I see african americas speak of there ancestry as if they sprang from the dirt i cry.

    ? Are you saying the more we start to look like white people in black skin we become more beautiful?


  • Ugo Ndukwe Aug 12, 2009 at 9:16 pm

    @ M.Turad

    your not serious. No disrespect but when ever anyone speaks of a woman they should first think of their mother in every regard. My mother is very beautiful so she makes it easy for me to love myself. I am kind because she is kind. i love God because she loved him and taught me about him. and on an on

    to say dat naija babes contain elements of razeness… well you can fill in da blanks but!

    There are levels, if your over 25, try an shine yur eye and find de babe way go fit ya movement and style

  • J Aug 16, 2009 at 11:59 am

  • Emeka Aug 18, 2009 at 5:53 pm

    I will agree with you on every point except the attitude. There is nothing more terrible on the face of this Earth than the attitude of an akata woman.

    (eyeroll) ignorance & stupidity continues to amaze me, especially since it's supposedly written by a female.

    The site should def try to shield its self from idiotic representations like this

  • Prince Aug 30, 2009 at 11:07 am

    What the author is saying is absolutely true, whether people like to hear it or not. When assertions like this are backed with obvious and plain evidentiary proof it is hard not to agree with her, and Bombchell knows( or should know) that the author is right. Insofar that Naija girls are more likely not to have a shapely booty without hips, the sad part is that their attitudes do not make up for this physical shortfall.

  • Anonymous Sep 2, 2009 at 3:40 am

    So this is the website with the infamous 9ja vs akata women. Lolololol. It's funny though. Wow is all I would say, plus it's really not as bad as ppl were saying. Lololololololol I guess it her opinion no biggy there.

  • Anonymous Sep 2, 2009 at 3:45 am

    Ps: it's funny how ppl told me to comenon this website to see it and blast it because the author is mad (which I thinks she is to a degree I you can openly call itself ugly) but what they omit is that we win the prize in other categories. Ppl are to caught on the first one. And that I find hilirious….I'm beautiful and that's all that matters to me. Get overyourself ppl.

  • lilkunta Sep 2, 2009 at 8:26 pm

    I disagree w u on physical beauty.

    What is exotic about Akata girls?

  • lilkunta Sep 2, 2009 at 8:27 pm

    These r just your opinion & thankfully they DONT have merit.

    Akata girls def dont/arent "more exotic looking".

  • NAPPY Sep 4, 2009 at 8:56 pm

    I see nothing wrong with keeping minds busy with both silly and genuine discussions. I live i America @ the moment 4 some years now. All i can say is that 9ja women has no comparism. They are clean, well educated, well mannered, very hard working & are always concerned about their families. They ve conscience, goal oriented etc. On the other hand, Black American women (akata) ve their own uniqueness too. The few areas i tend 2 pick issues with akata women are that most of them prefer to be producing babies with different men without thinking about what the future of those kids will be. Again sleeping around with different men even in their family house is no big deal, infact there is almost a total lack of morals about sex within the african american enclave. Over 70% of akata women smoke @ least marijuana which is conspicuously not the same with 9ja women. The percentage of 9ja women in schools & colleges is far more than that of akata not withstanding frequent school closures & poor family background whereas school loans & government grants are all available for akata women yet they let it go. Whereas akata women will approach u if they like u, 9ja women will never do that & will still pretend not to even if u now approach her. We ve as well a lot of very understanding & well behaved akata women inspite of their shortcomings which i largely blame on the American society & culture. And a lot more.

      You are so wrong. Black American women don’t smoke weed at that rate… Please. Also, we are more educated than any female in America… We are on pace with the White man. Most AA women are college educated. At least Gen X and Gen Y.

  • Naija boy Sep 10, 2009 at 6:56 pm

    Your write up is plain ignorant,.as far as pysique there is no noticable difference between "Akata" and Nigerian Women.they all migrated from West Africa,regarding intelligence,ive bet very smart and not so smart women on both sides.I think the writer has a serious self esteem issue.

  • UGO Sep 19, 2009 at 8:43 pm

    @ D.mode

    plan and simple its levels. There are girls, excuse me, ladies out there your eyes may never see.[full stop] They dont go to clubs to put themselves on display, their not loud or rude, & their classy( well put together from head to toe). These ladies are akatas and nigerians. These women are set apart. Please dont down grade nigerian women simply because your dating "flashy akatas" that are servin it up. Our level pass dat side anyway. LIKE I SAID ITS LEVELS!

  • Spkmamind Sep 23, 2009 at 9:19 pm

    Na wa oh! I see some people are not taking this sitting down oh! Your analysis na wa….kilode!

    My own piece is that whether African-Americans (i choose to be politically correct) or Nigerian-Americans (Yankee-Nigerian girls)…when we do proper research, both races hold it down in their own way with regards to every section. Now putting one race over another in each category, i do not know about that. What i know is that them African-American ladies must be giving us Yankee Nigerian girls a run for our money bcos our men are dating them. So i guess they might be doing something right.

  • Deebs Sep 24, 2009 at 5:13 am

    Now! mister or miss or whoever wrote this, let me set some facts straight – your whole notion of physical beauty, well sha, you must be looking at a skewed population of African American girls, or maybe when you see fine girls you assume that they are African American before you even talk to them (And you'll be surprised how many African guys do this), and the latter happens a lot to African girls that people think don't look "African". As for small waist and hips, African American have the highest rate of obesity, and this is a FACT, check the CDC website, so seriously! Give me a break about small cinched waists. Among the black race, the people with the most slender frame are northern west Africans and northern east Africans, so northern Nigeria, Senegal, Mali, Somalia et al. also remember that even though most are slender this does not equal all.

    Secondly, the fact that someone has taken NECO, WAEC, JAMB et al, does not make them innately more intelligent. It means that they have a broader knowledge base for sure. But don't ignore the fact that there are many Nigerian females who have taken JAMB, NECO and WAEC numerous times without passing. So before you come to a conclusion from your sample, you need to make sure that your sample is not biased. Most Nigerian girls in America came here to go to school and thus most of the ones you meet here are well educated and hardworking. With African Americans you are in their homeland so you have a more diverse sample, and those on the lower end pull down the median. While on the Nigerian end, those on the lower end, are not as well represented thus pushing up the median.

    In summary, don't make conclusions, and perpetuate stereotypes when you #1 ignore the fact that they are many individual variations and #2. don't have enough data and come to a skewed conclusion.

    And finally, you do know that most African Americans are of West African heritage right! I know there's been a lot of mixing since then, but I can also see most of my African American friends being African, but then I also don't have your biases and don't think that every pretty black girl I see must be Caribbean or African American.

    • Chidi Nov 19, 2009 at 12:44 am

      What u just wrote is not just a comment but an article which is more articulate and better researched. Thumbs up!!!

      I am a Nigerian lady and wherever I have been to, Europe, Asia, Africa….I am proud to say that my beauty and intelligence never goes unnoticed.

      Its ppl who think like this blogger that make most of our less confident ladies start feeling inferior and loosing their self-worth.

  • Regina Sep 30, 2009 at 10:43 am

    I agree with Deebs. This is an incredibly flawed post; on every account. In the matter of beauty, I (as an African American woman) cannot hold a candle to my Naija friends. They, to me, are some of the most beautiful women I know. And why the question about who is this or that? Find beauty in yourself and never mind anyone else. Are you so insecure that this would burden you enough to write about it with such an inflated sense of authority?

  • Iskanci Nov 4, 2009 at 3:08 pm

    to the person that wrote this article, I think your vision has been messed up, naija girls and African American girls are really pretty, but when it comes down to it, naija girls win hands down, and I dont kow where you saw Akata girls with nice waistline because they got tits and ass, most of these akata girls will be pretty but big bellies coms in the way(I am big on girls bellies so I know), but naija girls dont drive all over the place like these lazy craps so they are more fit, and talking about intelligence, I am offended that someone opposed your opinion, there is only a few yankee girls that would be able to stand the intelligent girls in naija,so I agree with you on that intelligence talk. but yeah I'm ready to go to Congo, Nigeria, Ghana, liberia and Ivory coast to find all my queens, just to prove you wrong

    • Fresh_Kid Dec 9, 2009 at 3:55 pm

      no. naiji girls don't win hands down. They are no better than us african americans. It is impossible to say one race is better than the other. God didn't make us different for that.

  • kicksknowlede Nov 10, 2009 at 11:18 pm

    damn! some chiks on here really got ticked off about this blog….lol.the guy or girl was only speaking his or her mind so chill out! yall need to leave the writer alone and give your own opinion. how about that? and the person that said that all this was irrelevant and unimportant in choosing black girls, am sorry but if it isn't what else is? do you date a guy without checking him out to see if he's facially cute (to you) and got a good attitude n all dat?.you don't have to get pissed off if someone gives his opinion on important issues that face him or her. i am a very blount person (nigerian guy .born and raised and in yankee 4 a minute now and ummm yea a med school student….haaa!) so am gonna say it as-it-is and if it bothers you, hey! its the truth, it is sometimes bitter…am also gonna be brief because i have more serious issues to blog about, not saying that this aint serious.but anywayz, in my opinion, n where my concern is is.. (i have done alot of research trust me): akata girls are more beautiful than nija girls, are better in bed, more sophisticated but nija girls are more disciplined, have a better attitude and thus make better wives…i know yall agree with me on this but yall just wish this wasn't the case but well there aint nothing i can do about it. it is what it is.i still love all yall women of all races because then again all this is relative and i look at people individually and not as statistics,so i got alot of akata friends and i have dated alot of them even a couple of white and asian chiks and my nija girls out there yall know i got love for yall. peace out.

    • Sugabelly Nov 12, 2009 at 10:04 am

      And for all your supposed yankee-ness you still didn't manage to grasp the spelling of blunt in nursery school did you?


      If that's your opinion fine then you're entitled to it, but speak STRICTLY for yourself and your highly limited social circle. Only goodness knows what types of people you associate with to lead you to come to that conclusion but frankly I don't care. Sure maybe your akata friends are better than all the nigerians that YOU know (including I hope you know your mother and possibly your sister if you have one).

      People like you are better off staying in America anyway. It's precisely because of people with the same mentality that you have that Nigeria is in a shit hole today.

      • kicksknowlede Nov 12, 2009 at 1:21 pm

        lmao…ms sugarbelly (nice name) thanks for the correction. but am pretty sure you don't wanna go there with me. If this was a research paper or something am sure i wouldn't have made such simple spelling me.(i wonder why you didn't correct my punctuation too). i attended a very good nursery school in nija and have always topped my class since that was only a typo, ok?

        2ndly u really didn't point out your problem with my comment. i never used the word "better" except for when i wrote; "better in bed", if thats you argument, then maybe thats a whole other issue for another day. lol . if you say i wrote more beautiful (facially) then you might be right. and thats speaking in general.ok? this doesnt mean that YOU are not beautiful, neither does it mean that nija guys are better looking than akata guys. its just the facts.i also wrote that nija girls are more disciplined and have a better this a biased statement too?

        3rdly, yes i know my i also have 3 lovely beautiful sisters ,all whom i am proud of. (4 da records).

        lastly, people like me are better off staying in America? please!!! hey, do me a favor, where are you now? if in da u.s, what are you doing here? u should go back! if in nija, wouldn't you kill to come live over here?….ok then….thats what i thought….-kicksknowledge

        whoa, blame nigeria for being a shit hole. don't blame nobody cuz they think nigerian girls are more or less this and that than american girls. that aint got shit to do with why nigeria is in the position its in today. and 2ndly, the guy didnt totally forsake nigerian girls, he gave them their props. i believe someone has hurt ur feelings b4…u need to just let it go girl.

    • ms_teacher Dec 7, 2009 at 3:32 am

      i agree with you when u say ppl are taking this issue to serious. i find it quite funny, tho i don't agree wit all he says or all that u say. i can't stand the attitudes of most nigerian girls–they are stuck up, rude, and think WAY to highly of themselves. I'd rather chill wit my american friends than most nigerian girls any day. and in my opinion, nigerian girls are too messy and talk too much shit that they can't and wont or are too afraid to back up! thats one thing about american girls…they are much more braver than nigerian girls, even if they are a little more outspoken. nigerian girls are too concerned about other ppl's biz and what others are saying about them. american girls don't give a shit, as long as they know that bad (in the good sense) and are on top of their shit. but i must say that nigerian girls make better housewives cuz they are more submissive and obedient. that's the area i need to work on…to an extent tho! american girls generally are cuter than nigerian girls, but naija girls are way more smarter and conservative. so ups to them on that. i'm not gonna hate on my ppl all the way. lol. and yes, i'm a nigerian girl, born and raised in america. damn, i didn't expect to write this much. lol.

      • kicksknowledge Jan 5, 2010 at 4:18 pm

        this sounds pretty fair and unbiased.we need more ppl like you in other to make more healthy and worthwhile conversations.

        but i just wanna point out a few things: naija girls maybe "stuck up" but are not necessarily rude (i mean majority of them) until they get to the U.S. trust me!. i lived in nija for 17yrs. i just think you believe this because of that unnoticed tension and silent competition among people in the U.S. especially people of different races.(we all think we the best no matter where we're from).(plus this is worse among females).so thats no ones fault.

        also i dnt know about other guys but an "i dnt give a shit" attitude in a female aint attractive to me at allllll.but hey! who am i anyway…..

  • iskanci Nov 19, 2009 at 2:50 pm

    @ Chidi, I love the fact that you are a beautiful and intelligent African lady, and I hope more of our girls go in your footsteps, but I will have to disagree with you when talking about self esteem, I will have to say that the author of this article and people who think like him have no hand in messing up the SELF-esteem of ladies, it is called SELF-ESTEEM for a reason so you have to rethink that self esteem issue before attacking men who just state their opinions, I believe ladies who mess-up themselves have low self esteem and shouldnt blame other people for their personal problems. tell me what you think Chidi

  • Rere_84 Nov 20, 2009 at 11:39 pm

    First of all……………………..PLEASE STOP USING THE WORD AKATA. I am a Black American with a Nigerian Dad so I know what that word means. I would agree that Nigerian girls are far better educated than Americans only because the American school system is a corrupt one. As far beauty, I think BOTH are beautiful. As far as attitude- Nigerian girls have much more confidence while American girls get angry over things that are their fault to begin with. For the most part there is a lack of education for both groups due to negative and FALSE media portrayals…………What do you all think?

    • lilkunta(rere_84) Nov 23, 2009 at 1:11 pm

      @ rere But Akata is the perfect word.

    • kicksknowledge Nov 23, 2009 at 1:43 pm

      @ rere. when i first came to the U.S from Nigeria, i was called "african butty scatcher" long before i knew the meaning. But so long as i knew it made no meaning to me and definitely wasn't what i was, i didn't let it bother. if someone calls me blind and i know fully well that i can see clearly out of both eyes ,why would i let it bother me then? so you shouldn't be worried about the whole akata thing cus i dnt think it can be least not that easily…

      And yea the media has definitely done a good job of negatively portraying all people especially black people in the diaspora so in order for people to make a favorable judgement about another group or race, i would say one should look more closely and try find things out for oneself and not rely completely on western media cus those guys would do anything to make money.

      For me, i dont speak on or on behalf of any group but i speak on and on behalf of what i have seen about these groups and the people i have come across in life and i try not to generalize those ideas…-kicksknowlede

    • kicksknowledge Jan 5, 2010 at 2:35 pm

      i see y'all tryna put we nija guys on the spot huh?.nice! but the good thing is that we are being sincere about the's nothing new. NIja guys (speaking in general) are not the nicest looking guys (facially) on the surface of the earth (compared with any other group or race), matter of fact some of us are so unattractive facially that you don't need to hear us speak, argue in public, or see our I.D's to know that we are Nigerians. We know this.and we dnt doubt it. but i dnt think this is the purpose of the whole conversation. i think it discusses something more important. i think the conversation tries to show which guys are better-off in terms of having values, good morals, the right attitude, a good heart, tendencies to be good fathers, have the most respect for females, not likely to end up in prison.etc Now tell me, with all these good qualities in a guy and more which i hope are still valued by all females out there, which group or sub-group of guys (IN GENERAL) possess these qualities THE MOST?

      am not insinuating….just enjoying the conversation.luv y'all

      • ms_teacher Jan 7, 2010 at 1:33 am

        lol. i love ur honesty. naija guys beat american guys when it comes to having values, being good fathers (for the most part), and not likely to end up in prison (haha). respect for females…eh, both nigerian and american men suck at that. the right attitude…no comment. when it comes to supporting the family, naija men beat american guys hands down cuz they at least stick around and work their asses off to feed and clothe their families.

        now on a more shallow level, when it comes to looks, i gotta give it 2 my american brothers! sexy! not saying that there aren't a fair share of good looking naija guys out there, but u gotta admit, some of them got those STRONG african features that are just a little too much for me…lol.

        • kicksknowledge Jan 8, 2010 at 10:25 pm

          i agree with you on almost all of your points. I understand that looks is a very important aspect to consider when dating a guy. But the question is what is really important in a picking a guy? Females these days seem to be so nonchalant when it comes to this and end up getting hurt like they didnt see the signs. Dont' get me wrong, am not against anyone or any group. am just trying to know why it seems like everyonelse is blindfolded these days probably because of the media or something.(no disrespect to anyone). But anyways… matter of fact if one finds a good looking guy with a great character, (no matter where he's from), i say "fine! jackpot!! woot woot!!!" i would always say "go for it". Basically my point is i think females are never sure about what they want in a guy and thats why sometimes they make the wrong decisions in picking one.What do you think?

          • ms_teacher Jan 11, 2010 at 1:26 am

            i wouldn't necessarily say that girls don't know what they want in a man. Most girls could quickly write out a detailed list on the spot if you asked them to. lol. I think we make the wrong decisions when choosing one because alot of us are prone to settling for a guy that has at least SOME, if any, of the qualities that we desire in a man. I know i'm guilty of that. "Mr. Perfect" or "Mr. Right" is hard to come by and alot of us are either too impatient to wait, or dont think "Mr. Perfect" or "Mr. Right" even exists. Thats just my opinion of course.

  • kashif kahn Dec 20, 2009 at 2:53 pm

    Physical Beauty- Subjective so it cannot be used as an indicator or in comparison. It's in the eye of the beholder

    Attitude-Again subjective. Different guys can have different level of tolerances. Also personality plays a big role in what you like or dislike about a girl's attitude.

    Body-Objective. Most(not all) guys like voulouptous gurls with nice frames. There are more african than african american gurls like this

    Intelligence-Well I don't need to explain. you all know, background and upbringing or not, it's still the fact.

  • Black-AmericanBeauty Mar 31, 2010 at 1:29 am

    Gotta love us! We are the "TOTAL", and I repeat… "TOTAL" package.

    My Sexy "Nigerian" fiance tells me so… wink-wink*

    He knew he had to have a – long pretty "REAL" hair having, Successful*, Beautiful, Strong, Shapely, black-American girl by his side!

However, u know just as well as i do that alot of american girls, dont have too much hair. who do u think 36 mafia was talking about when they said "bald head scaliwag"? lol. if u really do have long hair, congrats to u, but ur one of the few unless ur mixed. and we all know that real hair aint in no more! lol.

        Not all of Afr descent have short or shoulder length curly hair! Not all of Afr descent relax their hair or wear wigs or wear weaves.

        GTFO of here with your bullsh*t comments!

        Writing LOL dont make your post funny! Leave the comedy to Basket Mouth Okay? Should not you be grading papers or making a lesson plan for your students?

        • ms_teacher Mar 31, 2010 at 10:56 pm

          now dear, calm down. did i say that there is not a single american girl with long hair? no, i didn't. Nor did i say that they all wear wigs/weaves. and that ignorant little comment about me needing to be grading papers or wat not wasn't necessary. a teacher's life is not all about her job. if a person's life revolves around their job only, shouldn't u be doing whatever it is that you do instead of losing your cool on a blog site? or maybe its that u don't do anything at all…who knows, who cares. i'm allowed to say whatever i like, and if i think it is funny that i'm damn sure allowed to add a hardy LOL or LMAO in this case.

        I hate that phrase. Why is bitch the new black? Another way to disrespect Afr Am ladies. A lady who is

        smart, opinionated, successful, etc is not a bitch. She is focused and determined and motivated. Nothing about these great traits are in any way related to a lady dog.

        YOU and YOU ALONE settled for indian remy. I 'll pray you learn to love yourself.

            You're right. I confused you with that book that is coming out with that phrase as the title.

            You foolishly said weave is the new black.Then quoted that trifling group 3 6 mafia.

            How about marriage before chidren is the new black?

            and still u choose not to read what i wrote. i NEVER SAID BITCH WAS THE NEW BLACK? u can't see? and u obviously have something wrong with u. since when has weave been black listed? weave is NOT THE DEVIL. if so, alot of women (of all colors if i may add) are satan's worshipers. hell, look around. some of ur friends are probably holding a secret weave cult meeting as we speak! be real. its not that serious, girl. u can't compare wearing weave to having kids b4 marraige. the comparison is outlandish and crazy. i'm gonna need u 2 chill out on this issue, DEAR.

            I did indeed read. Did you? Icorrected myself. Reread please. Let me state it again: You foolishly said '[ weave is the new black ' . I even included/quote your 2April comment @ the end of mine.

            I made a comparison, surely you know what that is? You are touting weave as the new black as if it is somehting great. Marriage is what is great and it should be the new black.

            You need to get off this site , go make a lesson plan. No wonder students hit teachers.

        • ms_teacher Apr 7, 2010 at 10:36 pm

          ok. ur rite. u did correct yourself. i apologize. now, try and correct yourself again. my weave comment was not to be taken as if its a new philosophy of life that everyone should abide by. it was a simple comment not to be taken so seriously. i never said marraige shouldn't be the new black, but it sure isn't much of a trend rite now, which is why i wouldn't bother agreeing with you. should it be? yes. but is it? no. weave is, whether u want to admit it or not. look it up and see the growing number of ppl using hair extensions in today's society. maybe that will finally shut u up. and again, leave my career out of this. i handle mine in that area and don't need u bashing my profession. very tacky.

  • kicksknowledge May 25, 2010 at 5:46 pm

    all y'alls comments are really hilarious but interesting.they are either intentionally or unnintentionally bias or just straight up lies.

    first of all, this is definitely not an irrellivant issue. Today the world is detoriorating so fast that we tend to forget what our true moral values are which were what our parents and their parents upheld and we decided to go with todays wayward trending values which is quickly multilating our cultures and drawing us away from God. so i commend the writer for this piece

    The writer tried to shed some light on a very important factor of the black community which is the black woman and in his own opinion trying to compare the African and African American woman as a way to kinda bridge the gap between both groups (in his own way, of course lol)

    But what this topic strikes my mind is that my beautiful African sisters are not happy with their African American sisters which they kind of "look up to" (when it comes to todays styles and trends) simply because they have decided to move way towards the western culture in most aspects of their lives today.such as their male baiting approach. African American women (not all of course) lure men to them by first seducing them with their bodies (outside beauty) as opposed to what it used to be and what the African sisters are more used to which is trying to get men by showing how loving, caring, supportive and understanding (pretty on the inside qualities) they possess (not all of course lol). And whats most aggravating to them is that this lustful approach tends to work and attract most men (both African and African American men) to African American women (so they've become the "ish" in the society of today). So the African woman is like "have some decency and some self respect.don't let it all hang out at least not on first sight" and the African American woman is like "don't hate the player, hate the game" and the rest of the African women are like "well if i cant beat them i might as well join them.where are my stilletos and my micromini skirt?" But interestingly, this new bait approach for men mostly tend to attract the more dead beat men of the society (who see women as nothing but ass and titties). i can go on and on and on…..but let me try to conclude.

    so our black women of today are in one big dilema with men, relationships and dating.they don't know how to get and who is a "good man" which they all say they are looking for.

    so in summary We are all being heavily influenced by the western world (through no fault of our own) which mostly lacks in morality, values and the fear of God and our African American sisters are the first to catch this fever becuase of their closer proximity to the western culture than the African woman and pass it on to the African woman both living in the U.S and in Africa wishing to come to the U.S.

    Once again i am an African guy (from Nigeria who grew up in both Nigeria and the U.S basically so I believe my opinions about the black culture as a whole is pretty vivid and well rounded. anyway i tried to be as fair as i could be to both groups but sometimes as they say "the truth hurts". well, feel free to engage in a reasonable convo with me or challenge me if i am wrong).and i hope it wasnt too long ….peace

  • that girl May 25, 2010 at 5:59 pm

    seems to me that you have an idealistic and very false image of Nigerian/African women, yes, we have values, based on religion, but uunfortunately, all that are out of the window. the idea of only african-american women using their bodies is outdated…WOMEN ALL OVER THE WORLD are doing it. Gone are the days where you knew 'a good girl' will be back home, now, there are good and bad women EVERYWHERE. My main problem is the generalizations. you may know a few people from each culture, but their actions in no way representative of the millions. it is fair to say that our value system has broken down back home….

    however, i believe you are going off at a tangemt, trying to make sence of what the poster was insinuating, he exhibited sheer ignorance (i mean African american women have a more coca cola body? i thought black women were black women?) and with your generalizations, you guys should definately be friends, so you can compare all the women of the world!

    am out….

    • kicksknowledge May 25, 2010 at 8:15 pm

      your points are kinda all over the place.but anyway you are right on your point that there are good and bad women everywhere but the question is which is more highly emulated today? and why is this the case? and where is our future heading with such diminishing morals?

      also lol what makes you think that "gone are the days where you knew a good girl…?" i have 3 beautiful sisters and a very lovely girlfriend and also have alot of decent females of both groups who don't have to be at the club 24-7 to get a man or reveal their titties, tthighs, have their asses hanging out n all to attract a man. of which if they do, they'll certainly get a bunch of guys but would miss out on high quality ones. i was attracted to my girlfriend because of how sweet and charming she was and not because of how seductively she shook her booty. and i immediately knew how beautiful she was on the inside. Anyway let me not sound like am preaching but i wish our women (all black women) can change their ideas and philosophies about dating and life as a whole.

      • ms_teacher May 25, 2010 at 8:31 pm

        any girl that goes to the clubs in the hopes of finding a man is setting themselves up for failure. everybody knows that guys don't go to the club in search for "the one!" if anything, they're looking for the one they tryna get booty from that night.

    • tjruffryder Mar 3, 2011 at 7:56 pm

      Why is it that you guys can't have an educated argument. I can understand where the writer is coming from and going with this article. I have seen both cultures of Afircan women and African American women, It is a matter of trade offs. I really think that mordern African girls are already westernized and there is an extensive erosion of our tradition african values in african women today. So therefore we should stop looking down on our African American cousin after all our education, and economic system is not that great.
      I have dated Nigerian girls and African American Girls they have one thing in common "Drama". and both groups do know how to love. I guess you guys can agree with me on that.

    I think American Black girls are generally better looking. Most black Americans have a mixed ancestry so they have an exotic factor thats appealing.

    With that said I also think there are many pretty Nigerian girls out there too 🙂

  • raj Jun 2, 2011 at 4:09 pm

    I am a proud African American woman. Many people have confused me as being an African—that's until I start speaking. My highly intelligent mind keeps wondering if Jaguda lacked a informative, stimulating, insightful writer? Or, is stupidity their true face hidden undercover. Please, it really don't take a simple minded person to realize that beauty is relative. And yes there are just as many hoochies in Nigeria as in American. The HIV rate is proof of that. Frankly, I am so tried of folks and their separatist, tribulalistic spirit always ATTEMPTING to find ways to make themselves higher and better than African Americans. Are you satisfied now?

    It makes no sense to compare the education level of immigrant Nigerians to African-Americans, as it is the more educated Nigerians that are able to make it over to America (generally speaking) in the first place. A fairer comparison would be Nigerians as a whole vs. any other groups.

    This is ridiculous! It should be African women versus Nigerian women. I am sorry but I generally can't stand Nigerians even though I am close friends with some! I am East African and I don't understand where their nasty attitudes, cockyness and arrogance comes from. They carry on as if they are better than other Africans when honestly, they are generally not as attractive as other African women ! If you want proof, attend an East African party! They always show up! They are soo in your face with their culture and they think they are smarter than everyone because they are damn near everywhere!!! They just look down on other Africans! They are NOT CUTE!!! Take your Naija pride elsewhere!!! They tend to have wide or long noses, strong masculine features, hard and rough skin. The ones who actually have an okay face, lack a nice frame and don't have an 8-figure at all! I don't know what you're talkin about! If you wanna see nice shapes, meet some East Africans! I've met a lot of Nigerians and they tend to be super skinny and curve-less or overweight! Have yet to meet one whose body even comes close to mine! They are just an embarrassment to Africans!! Ughh The main reason other Africans don't like them is because they try too damn hard to fit into African American culture! Speaking slangs, being extremely rude! I can't stand them and they needa be brought down to earth and realize how damn unattractive they are. Shove the naija pride up your crusty ass! SHEESH!!!! Hell yea black girls look better than them, who doesn't???

        That’s right my sister all the so called East African chicks don’t have any Idea of what they are talking about what’s Africa without My Naija People? Exactly other than what we see on TV, it wouldn’t be the Face of Africa anymore it will be the Shame of Africa without us. They just too embarrassed to admit it.

    • lalau Oct 30, 2012 at 10:24 pm

      Well Gretta or whoever the hell you are need to go somewhere with that and I have seen the east Africans and they might look pretty but have some weird ass shapes so you need to shut your mouth with your dirty mouth you C&*@ beyotch stinky ass please don’t even get started mmmm you need to really stfu .And Akata girls have some weird shapes too so what are you talking about they are often small on top and big at the bottom like no proportion at all or the other way around .You must be a 400 pound B%^&* who is just hating on Naija girls who actually have shape. Please and that is confidence we have not cockyness it is often misunderstood by those who don’t possess the beauty and lack the confidence. And you author are a big fool how dare you you are a big disgrace if you are a Naija girl you do not deserve to be even called one. Ignorant Oaf.

  • -UnKnown- HA! Oct 12, 2011 at 1:36 am

    I had the worst experience with a Nigerian. He was very arrogant, deceitful and just down-right evil. Now, I know this can be in any man. I had some strong feelings on this issue so I researched it to come and find out that I wasn't the only one feeling this way! I have read a great amount of articles mentioning Nigerians and their arrogant ways. But as I was saying, it was a major turn – off . Also, his family looked down on 'Black Americans' . It was disgusting and the fact that I was a black american doing better than he was pissed him off a lot . He was jealous of me. So, we had to end the relationship but hot damn! His cock was so big! Mmm, not that we had sex but, we did a lot of teasing 😉 I would call him Daddy 😉 I feel bad because in my heart he will always be my 'Big Daddy'. I could never call another man that.

  • baron Nov 24, 2011 at 10:57 am

    im particular about the east African saying a lot bullshit about Nigerians. He should grow up and accept the fact. Some of you are the reason why black people are looked down upon. Nigerians are well respected people all over the globe, besides beauty is relative and of course lies in the eyes of the beholder, so plz adjust your mindset cos nigerians are loving people.

  • AJCiti Dec 24, 2011 at 5:09 pm

  • Cynthia Student Jan 29, 2012 at 7:38 pm

    Wow. As an African-American woman of mixed ancestry, I am often awed at the natural beauty of many "full-blooded" African women. That said, in the states, it is very often that black men choose black women who look more like me, but that is largely due to cultural ignorance and under appreciation of afrocentric standards of beauty. Our American culture has been so poisoned by Euro-influenced standards that we don't even appreciate our own. So sad that this has apparently spread even to the Motherland (Africa) also, but it only seems to apply to women. The sexiest black male actors in the U.S. right now are the tall, dark, and handsome Edris Elba and Morris Chestnut, but the most popular African-American female leads are the likes of Halle Berry, Paula Patton, Queen Latifah, and other more "light skinned" ladies.

    Please don't get it twisted! Women are women -PERIOD!!! At our core-every woman is the same. We were all created by God! At our core we are all the same. If a Niaja woman's husband and an African -American woman's husband both cheated on them-they would both have the same feelings. They might reialiate differently, but they are going 2 share the same feelings. I am a beautiful BLACK woman who is brilliant! Sexy,smart,intelligent,hard working,BEAUTIFL, and of the utmost importance-LOVES GOD!!! I have had Nija men tell me how beautiful they thought I am. Someone else might not agree! Who cares! Know who you are as an individual! Regardless if you're black or Nigerian! Love who you are! Doyou andbe you! Love yourself first!!!

  • Tin-Tin May 1, 2012 at 1:29 pm

    After dodging this article I finally decided to read it, hoping and praying that it would not be ignorant…..I guess I was wrong.

    Okay, this author does not have an examples or personal experiences to back up their argument or reason for stating their opinion which they are apparently trying to make it a fact. Not a Good look!!!

    I did not want to comment, but I guess I'm going to speak my mind anyways. I must say that us as women are beautiful, it does not matter what part of the equator you were raised, we're beautiful. Instead of severely shedding light on the differences of different groups of women, we should be lifting each other up because at the same time, we all bleed once a month, and are able to give life which is powerful.

    Once again i'm Ghanaian and proud, and I don't think i'm ugly because I'm African!!!! I know I look good, and i'm not biracial either..(nothing wrong with my half-cast individuals just commenting on what the author wrote in the article) I love my "Dark Amber" (brown) Maple syrup complexion. Actually, when individuals see me they either assume i'm African-American or West Indian. My point for stating that is, the author could be looking at another fellow African sister, but since their thoughts are so twisted they would never know unless they ask.

    As for the intelligence portion, I've noticed growing up as a child and now as an Educator in the states that Africans tend to be a bit more aggressive with their education, as for Nigerians or Africans being smarter, whatever the case maybe…i just think it's better to say more aggressive with their education. I say that to say, I know of some Africans sisters who is extremely book smart but when it comes to making commons sense decisions about life…they were known to do some let's call it eyebrow raisers decisions.

    Attitudes,…um I really don't know where the author was trying to go with that. In fact this whole article is extremely random and sounds like it was a vent session from one homegirl (best friend) to the next. And the author also sounds like they have low self esteem. Might want to look into that………(scratching my head/food for thought)…

    But yeah,…um.. I'm extremely disappointed in this article:(

  • American Naija Babe May 13, 2012 at 6:02 pm

    Well… this article is rather stupid (sorry for that choice of word), but I don’t think the author had any clue on what he was talking about, I was raised in the States in fact people think am African American but I have the beautiful Naija Gap teeth, dimples that is so common and you know it is, if you Naija .I see African Americans every day, I don’t even think the author knows their history. Comparing African American to Full blooded Africans is just like comparing the Strawberry fruit to strawberry mixed flavored drink sometimes you will notice their, hair (curly,or straight full edges ladies you know wat I mean because they don’t put weaves in their baby’s hair like we african do) eye color is hazel, light brown w.e (No it’s not contacts), and their nose are as pointy as Caucasians you will rarely see them with wide noses. I mean African American’s generation way back from the slavery times have changed in looks, they are a quarter Caucasian (white) or 1/3 you name it along the line and not to mention alot of them will tell you they have native Indian in them, bottom line is that they have got feature that if you full blooded african you don’t have. Africans tend to have that high cheek bone, Gap teeth, forehead, beautiful dark skin color, dimples etc. Funny enough Americans thinks Africans are beautiful they adore our skin color. Do you know the face of Macy’s advertisement cover and commercial you will notice they love them african features. We are all beautiful and beauty is in the eyes of the beholder.—–YALL DON’T READ THIS, THIS IS WHAT HAPPEN WHEN YOU DISS MY PEOPLE IT’S THE UGLY SIDE OF ME IN RESPONSE TO THIS PERSON–> @ Gretta, that chick who commented, am guessing she is East African Ethiopian or Somali thinks West Africans are Ugly blah blah blah and rude, cocky, arrogant. First of all sweety like it or not on this face of the Earth YOU ARE A DAMN AFRICAN AND AINT A THING YOU CAN DO ABOUT IT BECAUSE EITHER YOU IN THE UK, US, AFGHANISTAN, IRELAND YOU STILL AFRICAN YOU EAST AFRICAN ARE MIXED AS WELL WITH ARABS OR THOSE MIDDLES EASTERN THAT MIGRATED TO AFRICA DURING THOSE TRADING DAYS YOU ARE NOT FULL BLOODED AFRICAN SO CHECK POINT WAT EVER ANYBODY IN THE WORLD SAY ABOUT AFRICANS IT INCLUDES YOU EAST AFRICAN AS WELL. YOU WANNA TALK ABOUT HOW PRETY YALL ARE AND ARROGANT NIGERIANS ARE WELL, YES WE ARE COCKY, BECAUSE WE ARE THE BEST IN AFRICA. DID YOU KNOW THAT IF NOT BECAUSE OF WEST AFRICA, THE CONTINENT AFRICA WILL NOT EVEN BE A GROWING FACTOR IN THE WORD? AND SINCE YOU ARE SO PROUDLY EAST AFRICAN YOU GIVE BAD NAME TO “AFRICA” JUDGING BY YOUR SO RUDE OBNOXIOUS COMMENT, SO IRRELEVANT TO THE ARTICLE BUT RATHER TO THE AUTHOR (No offense ) they always showing you guys on tv over here in the US how bad you guys need food and flys coming in and out of your mouth, THE BAD NAME YOU GIVE AFRICANS IN THAT THOSE AKATA’S GOT THE AUDACITY TO SAY THINGS LIKE HOW POOR WE ARE AND WHY WE GOT DISEASE AND FLY CRAWLING EVERYWHERE, BUT IT’S NOT FROM WEST AFRICA, DEFINITELY FROM EAST SO KEEP REP’N SWEETY.

And this is why black people will never get along because of stupid waste of time BS like this. It’s funny how I only see black people making stupid comparison post like this. Nobody else does this. Look at all the decisiveness. Clearly you did this on purpose for views, comments, and to bring people to you blog. Divided we fall and thanks to all the fools contributing to this division.

  • Makiese Sep 15, 2012 at 11:23 am

    @Yama Yama (dated August 14, 2012) – Yama Yama I totally agree with you and recommend your comments to everyone taking part in this article. All – KNOW THE TRUTH AND BE SET FREE FROM YOUR IGNORANCE AND UNNECESSARY DISTRACTION my dear brother and sister (I don’t mean to offend anyone here). If you really, really, really believe you’re smart/intelligent and beautiful you wouldn’t be fighting each other in this manner. Insecurity and poor self-steem is a silent, devastating disease that affects, in my view, at least 99.9% of the entire human race, canningly and subtly manifesting itself in millions of different ways – e.g to a lot of our caucasian brothers and sisters is the need to spend a fortune to travel to hot destinations or sunbathe often or simply use skin tanning/darkening lotions in order to accept their God-given skin colour; the need to be perceived as affluent by the world around them; to the rich and famous the crave to have the media/papparazzi acceptance and celebrate their dress code/hair style at the Oscars/Grammy etc., for instance. Finally – if you still depend on THIRD PARTY opinion/s to feel good about yourself, to unconditionally accept/love yourself, then you need healing and deliverance. Real beauty or success is not physical or material. It’s from the inner man. Anyone remembers Jesus’ parable in the Bible where He compared Solomon’s glory/achievements/attributes with the lilies of the valley (Luke 12:26-28)? God made you and you did not help Him in that process so why compare yourself to others thinking you’re better looking than the other – you’re simply proud, which is an expression of low self-esteem, of aching inside, and you’re ignorantly moking your Creator who made the east, west african, american, asian, indian , european, latino woman etc. Bless you all and please forgive my English mistakes as I am Angolan, a Kikongo and Portuguese speaking brother. Cheers!

    • Anastatia Apr 1, 2015 at 4:22 pm

      Now this it’s what i don’t like. Why do we need the approval of the white man? I wonder if the white man is reasoning in his mind, “Maybe I shouldn’t dress this way or say this because i don’t want the African peoples to look down upon me.” We as a people are always looking for the approval of the white man. Giving them the authority to label us as worthy. We should define ourselves. Articles like this definitely divide us. We should celebrate our differences and our likes. If you’re opinion is that the majority of Naija women are smarter than AA women than maybe we should bridge the gap, allow the wit of the Naija woman to rub off on the AA woman. And so on. This article is not factual it is an opinion. Be Blessed.

  • flo Nov 15, 2012 at 7:49 pm

    well….its a real food for thought. There are a million pros and cons betwixt them, but let me also highlight a few; looks-wise, i will score AA-70% and Naija gals-49%, but then looks ain’t all there is to it. I will gladly take an average looking Naija gal, if she more than makes up for it with a take-home-to-mama attitude. But the problem is, they both have terrible attitudes, most especially the Naija-yankee gals who always want to outdo their AA rivals in tripping-o-meter (excuse my English). Having dated both, i will say that heaven helps you if u f..k with AA chick and she goes shaniqua on your ass.Ultimately, due to the cultural differences, i will award naija gals 85% on attitude and AA gals 40% on attitude because the latter dont know how to be civil. They can show their ass anytime (like a time bomb). naija and african gals by extension at least listen and only go HAM if and when its obvious you really f…ked up. #just saying, don’t kill the messenger…lol#

I’m a black American female and I’m offended by everything this idiot said even saying black Americans girls look better, IS THAT SUPPOSE TO BE A COMPLIMENT? like dude STFU!.. Why would you even post an article like this dividing and diminishing women. There are attractive African girls and attractive black American women BOTTOM LINE. There are intelligent American females and intelligent African girls. Any man that would put down his own women is unattractive. I hope AA and African females don’t look twice at this idiot leave him to the white women. Ladies need to know there should be no competition between women of the same race, WE’RE THE SAME.
