I was reading your comment and I have to correct you on something. Oh, before I continue I am black American not an Akata. OK, to continue, the term African booty scracther was created 80 years ago by the racist Walt Disney Company. It was meant to be derogatory towards black people.

On one of their cartoons they had African Cannibals cooking another African tribe in a big black pot under a hot fire outside. As they were cooking the men they circled the pot singing in mumbo jumbo with big giant earrings in their noses, and humongous red lips while scratching their booties. So the Jews are responsible for the term *African Booty Scratcher* not black Americans.

I agree with you about the use of that term only being used by kids, heck I was called that as a child and called my friends it as well, there wasn't any crying and whining only laughter because it sounded so stupid. I had forgotten about the term until I came to this site with the over exaggerated use of the term coming from people on this site who has never been to America complaining about black Americans calling them ABS, you know, the my cousin's uncle's, girlfriend nephew's sister he said she said mess.
Sorry! What's the difference between akata and black American m

I dont believe in pan africanism.

Straight to the point.

Nigeria is full of opportunities. Nigeria degree is not recognised in the US.
Your programming cert will help. Many top programmers in Nigeria are self taught. If you are an expert you might teach wannabes for cash

are you a junior or senior developer? We dont have many senior developer in Nigeria. Look up for andela and apply for programing jobs there. They pay local rate.

Gather a list of startups in Nigeria with good funding and start applying.

Lagos is the king and the market, so lagos will be the place to live, work and make money

have enough money saved for survival.

Nobody will know you are american except when you speak

you don't believe in pan africanism by you believe there's a Nigeria?
Re: Akata Planning To Relocate To Nigeria by OruExpress: 4:06pm On Feb 05
OP. This website is a poor source of information about Nigeria, especially if you're educated.
Please don't get your information from Nairaland. If you need sources I can point you in the direction but listening to people here will get you lost because it's anonymous site and people aren't accountable to what they say.

MrAkata:


I call myself it so you would know exactly who or what I am. Nigerians use the word so much in the US I just embrace it. Whatever it means doesnt bother me much because I am different. I am secure in who I am and any one who knows me or are around me , will respect me. So I find it makes others more uncomfortable to hear me say it from my mouth 4 whatever reason. I look at it as letting people know the cats out the bag. I understand and know where we stand and how we are perceived .
did you ask why they called you Akata? Nigerians will not wake up one morning and start calling black Americans Akata for no reason. undecided and beside Akata is not even a Nigeria thing, but that of Yoruba undecided

MrAkata:
As the title suggest I am an Akata. I intend to relocate temporarily for various reasons. I basically would like to explore different opportunities and build a network in Nigeria. I have a background in IT and was considering enrolling in an University to further my studies and build a social network. I was wondering are Nigerian degrees recognized in America or would it be a waste of time ? I have a decent knowledge of IT and programming mostly self taught and certs. I am not too considered w/ school but rather the network it would provide.

I also have done some limited research and was torn between Lagos and Abuja. I am wondering which area would better suit my interest. I understand Abuja is more affluent but Lagos is a commercial hub with a lot going on. Im not timid or scared , I've lived in NY in rough parts so high density areas of black people do not intimidate me ( Im no tough guy ,either). What I am not interested in are any forms of "pan africanism" or any village experiences and wearing dashiki's ( no disrespect ) I just find those type of endeavors a waste of time and laughable. I've been to Ghana and did not enjoy it because of that reason . Too much emphasis on " cultural " poo , I respect African culture and can appreciate it , but it is yours . I do not seek to be something I am not. Too much tribalism and other political bullshit only confuses me and Im too old 4 that poo. My ONLY purpose in being in Nigeria is purely economical . I don't have time to waste on endeveours which will add no value to my life or the people i come in contact with.

I would greatly appreciate any feedback which I could take into consideration b4 making my move. I intend to travel there by March for 2 weeks just to touch the ground 1st b4 I make a decision. I tried searching YouTube but all of the Akata youtubers seem to be naive clowns to me so I take their opinions w/ "a grain of salt" as far as NIgeira.

I dont mean to come off disrespectful because I hold Nigerians in high esteem its just rather the narrative of the returning Akata which I hold in disdain. I don't want to be confused w/ some lost puppy looking to return and find his long lost culture and heritage. I have a culture and background o my own ( carribbean descent) so I can appreciate yours as I hold onto mines.

Blessing 2 u Brothers

Please do not come. No offense, but we don't want hateful black diasporans AKA descendants of slavery coming to our country. Africans are very much aware of all the hatred so-called black americans harbor in their hearts towards Africans. Please keep your hateful selves back in america. Mucho gracias!

Why are you putting my name in the conversation, he wasn't even posting to me. When did I insult you or blame the white man for everything? The white man knows the wickedness he has contributed to this world, he doesn't need me to tell him of his evil deeds. Stop lying.

Nigeria is existing and people in nigeria are getting deported from one state to another? 3 ethnic wars in one 'country'? Nigeria is deader than pan-africanism.

MrAkata:

I have an Associate already from the past . I was just exploring the idea of going to a University to continue my BA while I was there. Since I dont know anybody I figured a University would be the ideal place to build a social network. I dont intend on just walking the streets approaching random people.
*chuckle*


The fact that u believe only other races are capable of relocating for economical reasons I find disrespectul . If White Americans and Indians can relocate 4 economical reasons , why cant black americans ??
And of all countries to relocate to, it's Nigeria??

*guffaw*


U strike me as very ignorant "Do you plan on taking some oil and running out of the country" I dont believe u are Nigerian by saying some stupid poo like that. U sound more like a British or American NIgerian who thinks like a white man who u hold in high esteem. NIgeria has one of the biggest economies in the world and the biggest market in Africa . So why wouldnt a Black American see it as an opportunity and consider relocating there ?? I have a skill set and a strong network in America so I just want to see would I be able transfer them to Nigeria and make money. Even something as simple as selling barbecue ( example , i dont cook ) I am into IT now but I've done construction and can operate almost any heavy duty equipment. I have friends who fix and sell tractors and other equipment.
E be like see this uncle don chop belleful.
