restoring_womens_confidence:  Wow! This is the type of spirit we are talking about. I am Yoruba but you need to see the way I am grinning from ear to ear just watching this. I am proud to be a Nigerian. Thank you for putting us on the global scene. Igbo kwenu!!!!! Igbo Amaka!

adelakuntufayl: May you stand before kings and queens to make yourself, friends, family and over 200 million Nigerians proud. God bless every Nigerian out there using their platform to change the narratives. 🔥🔥🙌🙌🙌👏👏❤️❤️❤️.

everything_queensley:  So Satisfying to watch , proudly Igbo ❤️💯.

babajideedges1:  I’m proud of this brother! He wore the badge of his identity & culture to the biggest stage of his life yet. A true export ❤️. This is to the young parent out there that would rather slap a western name & identity on their children. This is to young Nigerians who threw away their identity/indigenous name after they landed abroad. This is to Nigerians back home who would rather pretend not to know how to speak with their own language & dialect convincingly for them not to be called local by other fakers, champions of classism and colonial slaves.
I hope this young man, Somtochi Ugorji inspires you to introspect & be proudly African/Nigerian/your-tribe again where ever you find yourself.

9jawoman:  Oginiiiii!!! Odogwu di na nwa! Go son!!! 👏👏👏Igbo kwezuenu!!! ✊🏾.

pheyishola:  I love it,I hope we can all just live together as one big family in Nigeria,we are one people. I know sometimes it doesn’t feel this way due to one reason or the other,but we just have to fight off whatever is trying to divide us and rise above it,we are stronger together. So I join him to say Igbo kwenu,Igbo kwezenu o lol.
