The Nigeria Spurs Supporters Club started as a BBM group about 10 years ago with a handful of members.
With Premier League rivals, Arsenal, Chelsea and Manchester United having huge fan base in Nigeria, some Spurs fans came together to form a group.
They grew from Black Berry Messenger group which was formed by the president, Knogi and moved to Whatsapp. They currently have over 90 members.
