The partner of Super Eagles captain John Mikel Obi, Olga Diyachenko, has extolled the virtues of the Nigerian woman on her first visit to the country, reports Completesportsnigeria.com.
Olga Diyachenko, a Russian beauty queen, and mother to Mikel’s twin Ava and Mia took to the social media to express how fascinating her firsthand experience about life, culture, and ladies in Nigeria has been since she met her partner’s family a week ago.
“Nigeria, what a surprise you’ve turned out be. But, if I’m to say what impressed me most, it’s the Women. So much grace, charisma and not a shred of insecurity, “Olga Diyachenko wrote on her Instagram Page @olga_allegra.
“Nigerian women walk swaying their beautiful hips with their backs impeccably straight, heads held high, knowing their worth. Their attitude is strong, yet very sensual, regardless whether it’s a wealthy woman walking through a 5-star hotel or a young girl crossing the road at 7 AM rushing to work.
“Although may I say, Nigerian women do not rush, nor do they fidget, they simply glide.”
“The way Nigerian women preserve their culture and traditions is admirable. They don’t chase international designers or dress according to Vogue, they wear beautiful traditional dresses, dance the traditional dances and do it all with pride!
“I hope Ava and Mia will inherit the calmness, sense of pride, posture, and self-worth that I’ve witnessed Nigerian women posses with such ease. Nigerian Women hat off to you 🙌🏼 #Nigeria #Pride #Women 💚.”
Mikel who is yet to feature for the Super Eagles after the 2018 FIFA World Cup finals in Russia is expected to be back in the squad for the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations in Cameroon after Gernot Rohr revealed that the Tianjin TEDA midfielder is still in his plans.
The 31-year-old has missed Nigeria’s last five matches against Seychelles, Libya (home and away), South Africa and Uganda.
He has 85 international caps for the Super Eagles and has scored six times.
