Top Ten Most Famous African Countries


The Top Ten

1 Nigeria Nigeria

I think the people are friendly and have this strong connection among themselves even though there are many ethnic groups

I don't think I need to explain much why Nigeria should be first, we are well know around the world, most of the most successful blacks are from Nigeria, and also more than 50 percent of black americans have nigerian ancestors, also the richest black man in the world is Nigerian, african music awards are being held by Nigerians, the movie industry is the largest in africa and. But I still think all african countries are know for one thing or the other. The only country I would consider to be in this first position is South africa and Egypt.

I just think we should be higher in fifa rankings

I'm Nigerian and I think all countries in Africa are famous(well-known) for one reason or the other, hence why the need to 'segregate' nor compare? [...meaning w'all should focus on achieving higher heights,mere comparison wouldn't get us there! ].As I said: 'it' simply depends on where one's country interest lies, already we Africans should be thinking or better still acting on how we can unite and develop peaceful, eradicating terrorism and live in peaceful coexistences with our neighboring countries and those beyond. #oneafrica

SA is a awe-inspiring tourist destination because there is such a variety of places to see and so many interesting activities.
