US-based Nigerian rapper, Eldee has given his opinion on the controversial nature of Nigeria’s overall population.
The veteran artiste took to his Twitter page to dispute the fact that the country’s current population is 190million and added that the real numbers will emerge when African politicians stop using population as a distribution metric for nation wealth.
He tweeted “Ok, for the 105th time,….
Nigeria’s population IS NOT 190million! Aren’t there any demography experts among us!?? Why are we continuing to perpetrate this falsehood. Densely populated no doubt but is it more populated than China?
Oya let’s do primary 5 math….”
Lagos, Nigeria = 452sq miles,
Average building height is <3 floors.
Beijing, China = 6490sq miles.
Average building height is >8 story.
Beijing has 21million people, and Lagos has 17million people??
Haba!? E beru Olohun now!
Even if the average building height in Lagos was 10 floors, it still wouldn’t be as populated as Beijing. There’s just not enough land mass.
When African politicians stop using population as a distribution metric for national wealth, the real numbers will emerge.
Guinea is claiming a population growth rate of 37% annually 😂😂😂 Even if they’re taking national sex breaks every 2 hours, doesn’t it take 9 months for a baby to be born??”
