For the Nigerian community, October represents independence (October 1, 1960) from British colonial rule it symbolizes a new and positive perception of the nation to the international community.
When listening to Green October it is not unusual to hear songs that straddle cultural boundaries with artist singing and rapping in Yoruba, Pidgin, Ibo, and English.
