Ciara was in Nigeria this past weekend for a show but made it a point to visit students at a local school, too.


She posted video to Instagram of her reciting an empowering message with the students about accomplishing the dreams people have for their lives.

Another student sang to Ciara. Ciara mentioned that the entire experience was one of the best of her life.

The highlight of the trip came during her show when she brought local choreographers up on the stage.

Nigerian music blasted from the speakers as she pretended to watch the choreographers do the latest moves in the region. Then all of a sudden, Ciara and her dancers joined in, doing a cute little choreographed number filled with Nigerian dances. She kills it. 

Kudos to Ciara for being a Naija woman for a weekend.
