Thabang Mazibuko, a former South African housemate on Big Brother Titans, claimed he was surprised to learn that Nigerians consume “weird” meals.
The 21-year-old claimed that after spending 65 days with Nigerians in the Big Brother Titans’ house, he became more aware of the parallels and distinctions in cultural practices between South Africans and Nigerians.

He said this in a recent Hip TV interview.
In his words;
“I learned about how rich in culture Nigeria is. I thought South Africa is place that is rich in culture and great history but Nigeria has so many different cultures, so many different traditions; they have a really rich history and that is something that I learned that I don’t know [before].
“I learned about the different foods, food ethics and the way they eat food. I found out that in Nigeria they eat popcorn with sugar and peanuts [laughs]. That’s weird but okay, cool.
“The biggest takeaway is that there are a lot of similarities between us and they things that we eat. But custard I think it is the same thing but we eat it as a dessert but they [Nigerians] eat it as breakfast. That was also pretty shocking.”
