As you already know, Tamar Braxton was in Nigeria with her man, David Adefeso and her son. More family members were there as well, and a few days ago, David decided to speak about this trip they had together as a family.
‘When I asked my @tamarbraxton to come with me to my mom’s birthday party in Nigeria I had no idea what to expect. I grew up in Lagos so I was excited to take her back home, but this was not one of our nice chill vacations under the warm Cancun resort sun No! This was a trip to Lagos, a tough, hot city where the “hustle” never ends. Not having lived there for almost 30 years I’d heard stories of how dangerous Lagos had become,’ David began his post.
He also wrote: ‘They said night trips were too risky, kidnappings were regular, and bribery was standard. Heck some US doctors told some of the staff we brought along not to eat the food . We braced ourselves for the unexpected, but instead, we experienced a colorful explosion of culture, intertwined with wildly imaginative and unapologetic tradition. ’
David continued and said: ‘We had the time of our lives in Lagos!!! We danced all night at a cool upper-end Lagos night club; jumped into a studio session with 3 of the topmost musicians in the country; visited @nikeartgallery owned by a legendary fashion designer and her charming husband; joined an impromptu dance competition at an equally impromptu family reunion surrounded by 30 of my closest family members; and hung out with a visionary 21st century king with charm and personality who was surrounded by deep historical and cultural norms and traditions that remind one of how proud and strong our country must have looked and felt like long before the colonialists arrived. ’

Tamar showed some love to David in the comments with an emoji.
Someone commented: ‘Awesome but I’ll pass on visiting there with that being said glad you’re safe.’
Another follower said: ‘Beautiful!!! Can’t wait to take my daughter home one day to show her how rich her culture and actual country is! ’
A person wrote: ‘Africa is very nice if you don’t listen to negativity people spread about it.’
Someone else gushed over David’s message and called it the most beautiful one on the Internet: ‘So beautiful. Best post on the internet! I’m jealous and wish we all good do this….we NEED to see this as black Americans. Love this. I love my ppl..Nd sending love to you and yours….love you Tamar!’
