Why did south Sudan want to seced from Sudan?

There have been tensions between both parts for many years. I think the main reasons were that most Northern Sudanese speak Arabic and are Muslims, while the Southerners were mainly either Christians or believe traditional African beliefs, and are poorer than those in the North. Furthermore, the cultural differences are massive, as the population of South Sudan is split into different tribes.
