sorry ! did i strike a nerve? you must be igbo then. lol anyways there's no need to get personal its just a forum. actually thot you were educated and exposed enough(from your posts i ve been reading from different fora ) to handle a criticism without you been overtly abusive. anyways just tell your brothers to take it easy wt the drugs and 419 thingy. lol its a pity but the truth is they form the greater majority of Nigerians all over the world been nabbed for the wrong things.

Well, from my experience: College professors, high school professors, legitimate business men, illegitimate business men (drugs, etc), prostitution too. . .

I got no respect at all for any tribalistic cretin, yorubas and igbos are all in it, defraud/scam/419/yahoo yahoo are carried out by both tribes.
I just can't understand why some of you are quick to jump into tribal bandwagon each time issue like this is raised.
You think u are educated? Think again.

A LIZARD IN NIGERIA WILL NEVER TURN TO A CROCODILE ABROAD.WHETHER YOU ARE IN NIGERIA OR ABROAD,TRY AND DEVELOP YOURSELF TO A LEVEL WHERE PEOPLE WILL BE WILLING TO EXCHANGE THEIR MONEY FOR WHATEVER YOU HAVE TO OFFER.RUNNING ABROAD NEVER SOLVES A PROBLEM BUT IT POSTPONES IT.
IN 2004,I LEFT THE BANKING INDUSTRY FOR BUSINESS BUT UNFORTUNATELY THE BUSINESS DEAL DID NOT GO THROUGH,BUT THOUGH I HAD A VALID UK VISA I REFUSED TO MIGRATE ABROAD AND THINGS WERE SO TOUGH FOR ME THEN THAT AT A POINT I HAD TO BE SELLING INTERLOCKING STONES FOR SURVIVAL BUT IT DIDNT LAST FOR MORE THAN A YEAR.EVENTUALLY,I GOT A GOOD JOD IN AN AUTO COMPANY AND IN 3 YEARS I SOLD OVER 3000 VEHICLES THAT GAVE ME A LOT OF MONEY.
TODAY I HAVE MY OWN COMPANY AND I AM CURRENTLY IN THE US ON VACATION WITH A VISA THAT WAS ISSUED TO ME SINCE AUG 2008 WHICH I HAD NOT HAD THE URGE TO USE,I RELUNTANTLY USED IT NOW SO THAT IT WILL NOT EXPIRE WITHOUT MY USING IT.
EVERYMAN HAS A GREATNESS IN HIM BUT IF YOU DONT BELIEVE IN YOURSELF NOBODY WILL,I ALWAYS BELIEVE THAT ITS EASIER FOR US NIGERIANS TO MAKE IT IN NIGERIA THAN ANYWHERE ELSE.
I AM EVEN SO SUPRISED AT THE LEVEL OF POVERTY IN THE US CURRENTLY.

Life is tough overseas in another mans land. The problem is the same whether in UK, SA, and US. Not all Nigerians going overseas are the same, some are wealthier and have connections, degrees and others do not, like not all fingers are the same. Many go overseas searching for the land of milk and honey finding pain and suffering. Its because they go overseas and think they can hussle or just overstay visa and there visit and life will be ok. It will not be.
So many Nigerians in the UK/SA are living in squalid conditions, money does not rain in dollars and sterling. It takes hard work. All these young guys think they have found the new trick, they end up being deported back to MM2, or worse like the thousands not hundreds, thousands locked up in prison.

One thing we need to know and understand when travelling is .
Where am i going ?
What do i have ?
You need to know if you're qualified and be patient you get a better Job or atleast something to do.
Not all Nigerians are into drugs or Fraud.
I am a Qualified estate agent and i work with one of the most Popular estate agent in South Africa which is a promising Job.
Lets know if you don't have any thing to do abroad it better to stay back Home,
So do not let us think traveling abroad is a bad one but just matter of understanding what you going to do there.

This is a high level of ill-informed messages , South Africa is a great country. There is no place on earth you will migrate to without the readiness to spare some years to understand , i came to SA in 2004 , there were ups and downs with the indigens but after a while i understood their ideology about imigrants and i settled in, i am a proud owmer of nativityconcepts, sa in south africa , we are a braning , promotions and entertainment company and same are other nigerians who are my friends in UK , USA and Ireland , owning companies and access to resources abroad. There is no harm in staying in nigeria if it works for and likewise if taking a risk for a calculated better life overseas. thanks
Our work and project are on facebook ,

If there is someone who can share experience of Southafrica, I think I am one of them.
I live in Europe, (I wont tell you which country because a lot of people know me.) ,however, Iam married to a Southafrican.
We do go to SA every 2 yrs and I have been 3 times.
For you to understand SA, just imagine Europe Africa and America and Spain mixed into one pot, that is SA.
If you speak dutch, you will love the place.
Now, there are 3 major types of SA people, you have the blacks, whites and colored (mixed race)
The blacks are living in 1950, the colored are living in 1980 and the whites are living in 2000.
What Im saying is the people have a different mentality, it ranges from being Paranoid to feeling superior and then, they also feel inferior.
They can be very irrational and sometimes very trusting, marriage to them is just like what we call by friend and girl friend in Naija.
My pikin de speak naija and im mama de try small small. but, im mama famili no like to hear about naija and dem no wan go visit.
Dem think say dem place na heaven but dem too like to travel, dem too like enjoyment.
If you go SA, make u marry, den make u get pikin, dem go give u Kpali one time.
If u marry dem, make u no put ur mind for the marriage ooh, otherwise, u go regret because, the woman fit wake up one morning talk say she no want again and thats it, no be like naija wey famili go put mouth.
The place good, I no go lie, but na oyinbo get the place up till tmrow.
Any workshop wey u get there or house, na bank loan, if u no pay, dem go collect am one time carry u go court.
The people na one kind people, but wetin go make me go live there be say, the weather na nmbr 1.
The weather no cold as people think, if u wan see cold, make u come Europe.
I waka well well for SA, I go see jaguda people wey be Naija, and Zaire (Makosa people dem).
I also go see naija wey de do better thnig, de ones wey de do beta thing, some na people wey go school well well and dem don relax for there and dem marry naija woman carry follow body.
But, many dey marry SOUTY, so those ones, you go see say dem wife wan carry dem put for pocket but, I trust Yoruba boys, dem dey marry two or 3 dem dey born for every corner, which is ok because, if yawa dey for one side, you go sabi where to but head.
If you dey europe and u don taya, make u go south bros.
If u be onyibo, make u go south one time because na una people get the palce, dem go sort you out.
Naija wey wan make fast money, u fit make am there but, dem fit carry ur dead body come house because every body get luga for there.
So, make I cut long tory, the bobo wey talk say him help one naija, I no go doubt because one man for there dey tell me say if i wan stay, him go wan join with me for business.
The place dey ok but, no go begin think say because u see black people na im be say dem go be ur friend, dem de do one kind one kind.
Plenty of dem no get home training.
But the good ones are very good.
Dem women fine no be small but, take time, sweet thing dey kill.
If dem boyfrind no shoot you, dem mama fit pour u hot water, if that one no happen, dem papa fit arrange u make them sort u.
And if u get bad luck, u go carry Okitikpukpa original Hiv.
No mosquito for there and the place no far from naija. so, there u go.
Thanks to the guy who helped the naija guy, so, can u tell us if ur calard (coloured), black or white?
|Re: Nigerian's In South Africa What Are They Doing For A Living? by oga adimma: 5:54pm On May 26, 2011|
I must mention that the majority of boys wey de run the street for southy na Igbo boys , True word no be lie.
It is understandable because, they are business savvy and have actual business experience which they put to a business that needs no shop.
I dont agree with their idea because they can do other things and live longer and happier lives.
The Yoruba boys are the ones who are kings of oluwole.
And they are also into yahuze and wuru wuru motor import, thats what I heard on the streets and I blv it to be true.
But, in all these, you have to bow when you notice that all the high tech jobs are full of naija at least when the going gets tough.
But, the inbalance betwn oyinbp and dudu for there, na wahala.
If u undersntd Yoruba, soutafrica will make u know that truley, Dudu ko ra.
Aaah, black southafricans hate non southafrican blacks, not to say that the other africans there are worth loving when u consider the way they embrace crime.
But, where in this world will a black man find rest and peaceful life?

Yoruba, Igbo, Hausa.
Means NOTHING to anyone in any country other than nigeria.
Anywhere in the WORLD anyone with nigerian papers is scammer, drug dealer, thief
Any papers they have will be FAKE
Any qualifications from school will be false from RUNS.
Nigerians are the new Jews detested by everyone just like RATS.

Many are doing constructive work for a living yet very many are engaging in illegal activities for a living but many are deceived by friends who return to Nigeria with money and they are made to think it is Okay in South Africa. Ladies resort to Prostitution, Drug trafficking and many other inhuman jobs you can think of.

You are good man and God will Bless you for lifting Jonah. Don't mind negative comments some people can't just imagine people doing good things because they have dirty minds. I want add that the original poster made point however it is not always the case. The advice here is before you leave for a foreign land you should ensure you are proficient on something. That could earn you a living when the opportunity arises. Most people finding it difficult to survive either enter those countries illegally or legally but no skill set that can immediately get them on. For those people who still believe they must go abroad to make it good luck but be prepared for the odds and the bliss. I wish you become another success story
|Re: Nigerian's In South Africa What Are They Doing For A Living? by Mafamafa(m): 2:53pm On Apr 20, 2012|
South Africa, is indeed a good country if you know what you want and doing. Not all Nigerians are fraudsters in there and i know a couple of friends and myself who came on just normal visa and God did helped us through. Ty, a friend, applied to a university in pretoria and now, he is a full lecturer within a space of 4 years. If you know sunnyside in pretoria, we have some nija guys doinggreat for themselves ie, halifax, bisi (taste of africa), not to talk of musician (kunle ayo and others), etc, this are guys that came o SA with little or nothing and were consistent in doing what they know how to do. I started a biz and was able to turn things around, it may not be easy in the first or second year, but trust me if you are serious, not moving with the bad eggs, and not carried away by the lerato's and palesa's, you can make it. As a matter of fact, going first to SA then transending to other contry, gives you upper hand than moving resh from nigeria. I relocated to the state recently and my expereince with life in SA thought me to start off as an entrepreneur in USA straight off with little or no amount. Lesson learnt, be deligent in following your dream and purpose, put God first and just have this win ... Win.... Win mentality. South africa is still the best country for me, pls its a personal lesson, experience and suggestion. Hard work is a currency that that you can spend in any country or continent.

SA- All I can say is the place is different.
I have met so many people in SA from the Ghanaian Goldman sachs Banker, America Basketball, the Models, the rent boys that service the government officals. You meet every kinda person in SA.
