... Because Good morning is too mainstream



Good morning can get pretty normal. Saying it in another Nigerian language would make things different and probably strike a conversation. To add to that, you would be appreciating the diversity in Nigeria. Lets shake it up for shaking up sake. I asked some of my friends what good morning is in their languages and they responded. For what its worth i hope they all actually know what it actually is in their languages. Lol. Well here goes:

There are definitely many languages i missed out and quite frankly i had never heard some of these languages till today. So were you represented here. If yes, were you rightly represented? If you weren't please share with us in the comment section and if you weren't represented at all please share with us too in the comment section. We want to learn.
