THE STORY BEHIND NENE-UWA AND AJALA NENE
When I was teeny-weeny, my aunty gave me the name ‘NENE-UWA’ 😊 It is an Igbo (My native language) word where ‘NENE’ means ‘SEE’ and ‘UWA’ means ‘WORLD’. Literally meaning “SEE THE WORLD” 🌏
‘AJALA’ is a Yoruba (A native language in Nigeria) name used to define a ‘TRAVELLER’. The word was culled from ‘Ajala the Traveler’ whose real name is Moshood Adisa Olabisi Ajala. He was a Nigerian journalist who became famous in the 1950s for traveling around the world.
The aim of this site is to inspire you…yes YOU 😁 to explore the world! Most especially to explore my nation, Nigeria and my mother-land, Africa. Both are blessed with beautiful tourist sites (monuments/historical sites) and cultural heritages that you would love to see and experience 😉
My other goal is to educate and enlighten aspiring tourism entrepreneurs, especially in Africa, to build a visible and sustainable tourism business.
I also have a DREAM. A dream to explore the whole world (All the seven (7) continents!!!). Check out my TRAVEL BUCKET LIST ✈️
LET’S DO THIS TOGETHER!
So come along with me on my adventures and be inspired to EXPLORE NIGERIA. EXPLORE AFRICA. EXPLORE THE WORLD 😃
WA NENE-UWA! Come See The World! 👣
*‘WA’ means ‘COME’ in Yoruba language.
