26 Beauty Vloggers Who Proudly Represent Nigerian Tribes

Many Nigerian-born beauty vloggers are not just vocal about their nationality but their tribes as well.  This is because Nigeria has over three hundred distinct groups.  The “tribe” defines who we are down to the language, culture, customs, and sometimes food.  It is something that the word “Nigerian” cannot fully explain or capture.

From Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie’s, “Half of a Yellow Sun”:

…my point is that the only authentic identity for the African is the tribe…I am Nigerian because a white man created Nigeria and gave me that identity. I am black because the white man constructed black to be as different as possible from his white. But I was Igbo before the white man came.

Here are 26 Nigerian beauty vloggers and IG personalities who rep for their tribes;

#1. Uwanii is representing for Hausa, one of the three major tribes in Nigeria.  Hausa people tend to reside in the northern part of the country and comprise roughly 29% of the population.  The Hausa language is a Chadic language, which is in the Afro-Asiatic family.
