Nigerian Dream Lyrics

We’ve got a house in Maitama
Buy three more on Banana Island
Been working hard since forever
So we can finally ask

“Do you know who I am?”
Daddy don’t come home on business trips
He’s busy with the Lagos ‘big girls’
Living it up
And mama makes these appearances
Don’t want no one to notice the bruises and cuts

We’re so sad
But we’re living the Nigerian dream
We’ve been had
But we look so happy or so it seems
With hypocritical smiles

Fake fake laughs
We’ve reached the all time low
We’re so sad
But we’re living the Nigerian Dream

Go home for the holidays
Gotta show everyone we’ve made it
We are so stuck in our ways
Don’t even know the difference between love and hatred
Oh but the kids are messed up... so messed up

Let’s just pretend that they’re not stressed
‘Cause “Nigerians don’t get depressed”
Gotta keep the appearance up
“Hush! The neighbors might hear us”

We’re so sad
But we’re living the Nigerian dream
We’ve been had
But we look so happy or so it seems
With hypocritical smiles

Fake fake laughs
We’ve reached the all time low
We’re so sad
But we’re living the Nigerian Dream

Don’t we look so happy with our fake smiles?
Don’t we look so pretty in the lies we’ve told?
Pretending everything is alright
But inside we’re cold

Don’t we look so happy with our fake smiles?
Don’t we look so pretty in the lies we’ve told?
Pretending everything is alright
But inside we’re cold

From this Nigerian Dream, I hope we wake up
