As the made in Nigeria hashtag keeps trending, Nigerian youths are still very determined to go with the trend and set the paces for others to follow. And i have to agree, a lot of these youths are better off, working for themselves, exploiting their God Given talents and will hopefully end up being major players in their field. With the believe, that the sky is your starting point, you can certainly be anything, you set out to be.
