About The Book

According to Shakespeare, Some were born great, while others had greatness thrust upon them. I am not sure where these wonderful Nigerians we have featured in this book (Nigerian Books of Record Breakers & Legends) belong to in the Shakespearean greatness chart but when you buy this book, we will like you to figure that out. One thing remains unambiguous; they may belong differently but are great all the same.

It is true, Nigeria is the most populous country in Africa – but Nigeria is not a nation that excels only in numbers! We have abundance of talent and brilliance; many Nigerians have made a name for themselves far beyond its borders. From music and literature to sport and modelling. From Science and Technology to Business and Entrepreneurship etc. Nigerians have excelled in all professional callings in life.

That is what this book is all about. The dairy of greatness and great Nigerians who have successfully sailed through the storms to the shore to inspire the rest of us.

The Nigerian Books of Record Breakers & Legends is a compendium of history, records, events and great icons of hope in all the facets of Nigerian national life.
