Nigeria is a country blessed with diverse culture and traditions. The Fulani people of Nigeria are an ethnic group that has a large number of nomads amongst them. The rearing of cattle is the main profession of most Fulanis in Nigeria. The Igbo people, on the other hand, are a major ethnic group in Nigeria. They occupy the eastern parts of Nigeria.
For a while now, there have been controversies over the two ethnic groups in Nigeria. Choosing which ethnic group has the most beautiful girls often degenerates into a heated debate. Fulani girls are usually tall and fair skinned; they are pretty ladies who need little or no makeup to enhance their facial features. Although what comes to people’s minds when they hear the term ‘Fulani’ is the picture of some girl with long hair braided with thread and a calabash on her head selling ‘Fura’ and ‘Nunu’. That is a rather primitive thought; the Fulani people have upgraded from what we used to know them to be. There are educated people amongst them and their girls also participate in beauty contests.
