Ahead of Democracy Day, June 12, we asked Chatgpt to reimagine the Nigerian national anthem, and this is what it came up with.

Verse 1

Arise, O Nigerians, great and bold,

Our hearts and minds, together we mould.

With unity and strength, we stand,

To build a future, hand in hand.

Chorus

From the North to the South,

To the East and the West,

We rise above challenges,

Together, we are blessed.

With justice and peace,

And the freedom we seek,

Nigeria, our homeland,

In unity, we speak.

Verse 2

We pledge to fight corruption’s hold,

With honesty, our story is told.

Empowering youth, our future bright,

In education’s path, we find our light.

Chorus

From the North to the South,

To the East and the West,

We rise above challenges,

Together, we are blessed.

With justice and peace,

And the freedom we seek,

Nigeria, our homeland,

In unity, we speak.

Verse 3

In health and wealth, we’ll find our way,

Together, we build a brighter day.

In diversity, our strength is found,

With love and care, we are bound.

Chorus

From the North to the South,

To the East and the West,

We rise above challenges,

Together, we are blessed.

With justice and peace,

And the freedom we seek,

Nigeria, our homeland,

In unity, we speak.

Bridge

O Nigeria, our cherished land,

With faith and courage, we will stand.

For brighter tomorrows, we strive and pray,

In harmony, we’ll lead the way.

Final Chorus

From the North to the South,

To the East and the West,

We rise above challenges,

Together, we are blessed.

With justice and peace,

And the freedom we seek,

Nigeria, our homeland,

In unity, we speak.

Outro

In unity, we speak,

In unity, we rise,

Nigeria, forever,

Under African skies.


The end. Now, someone run us the melody.
