South African Big Brother Titans ex-housemate, Thabang Mazibuko, said he was shocked to find out that Nigerians eat “weird” foods.
The 21-year-old said the cultural similarities and differences between South Africans and Nigerians came to him as a shock as he got to understand the Nigerian culture better after spending 65 days with Nigerians in the Big Brother Titans’ house.
He stated this in a recent interview with Hip TV.
Thabang said, “I learned about how rich in culture Nigeria is. I thought South Africa is place that is rich in culture and great history but Nigeria has so many different cultures, so many different traditions; they have a really rich history and that is something that I learned that I don’t know [before].
“I learned about the different foods, food ethics and the way they eat food. I found out that in Nigeria they eat popcorn with sugar and peanuts [laughs]. That’s weird but okay, cool.
“The biggest takeaway is that there are a lot of similarities between us and they things that we eat. But custard I think it is the same thing but we eat it as a dessert but they [Nigerians] eat it as breakfast. That was also pretty shocking.”
