... 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:

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.
