Things You Need To Know About Nigerians Living In S.A by Odinaka00(m): 3:17pm On Jul 10
Ok lemme say this here as a concerned Nigerian who lives in South Africa. Majority of South Africans hate Nigerians because of the shitty things most Nigerians do In S.A. which if I begin to say here chi ga eji ma boo (night will fall and morning will come) while still reading. Most Nigerians here in S.A. are so rude and arrogant. When you are in a foreign land you must respect your host, you don't disrespect your host, you don't disrespect someone's law, Cops will stop some of these Nigerians just to search them which is normal, but these Nigerians that don't even have papers will start doing "imakwa ndi Abu?" Which translate to "do you know who we be?". Some will start insulting an officer on a uniform thinking that they are in Nigeria.

Some will use South African woman for shelter, accommodation, food, permit and etc but when he finally gets what he wants he dumps her and and start insulting her and calling her names after all the help she rendered to him.. Some S.A. women go as far as getting loans just to set up her Nigerian man, why wouldn't she be bitter towards Nigerians when she finally gets dumped? I 've been telling some of my brothers here that if they don't love a woman please be honest with her, she can still help you because most of them are naturally good and they like to help. Don't try to act smart by deceiving her just because you want a favour from her. 

Some Nigerians marry these S.A. women and when they get South African ID they divorce them and come home and marry Chioma or Busola, why would these women be so bitter towards Nigerians? This is why it's so difficult to get papers in South Africa today as a Nigerian because their home affairs now know what some of our Nigerian brothers are doing here with their Sisters that they now came up with a new law that if you must marry a South African woman, you must take her to Nigeria and marry her there before they can issue you any paper. Now South African men now think that Nigerians are just using their Sisters to get paper, that's why they hate Nigerian men so much.

Here in S.A., Some Nigerians who are into fraud live in most expensive Estates, they stay at home from morning to night and yet they drive the most expensive cars, bring in their friends, start playing music so loud and be popping bottles with girlz, by doing all these things you 're simply calling attention from your S.A neighbours. Why can't you just go get a small shop and start selling anything? It 'll not stop you from doing anything you are doing with your Lappy but it 'll help you to stay away from any trouble from the Cops.

I'm not going to talk about drug dealings here cuz everyone does that and there are drug dealings in every country but drugging their young girlz and be using them for prostitution is so out of it, Nigerians back home let me ask you this... If your visitor who comes to your house and start drugging your female kids and be using them for prostitution what would be your reaction? Wouldn't you even think of killing this your visitor if you have to? When South Africans take action it would be labelled as XENOPHOBIC. 

Now let's go to the area of killings.. Some of these killings by Some South African miscreants are political motives by the opposition party just to make the ruling party seem weak. They pay these thouts to carry out these acts, it doesn't occur frequently. If 100 Nigerians are being killed in South Africa every year, Believe me 90 of them were killed by fellow Nigerians. Some of our brothers have turned to Monsters in South Africa and I don't really know the cause of this. Cult related issues? Drug business gone wrong? Old guys be forming King Kong, just a little quarrel with them they will start threatening your life and they will carry out their threats towards You, they don't joke. Every old guy in South Africa is a Mafian... Talk about selling out a fellow brother in South Africa it's only Nigerians that do that. For example, if you don't have papers, a fellow Nigerian will sell you out to the Cops, Cops will raid your house and definitely collect money from you which they will later share with that Nigerian that sold you out. A lot of this happens here a lot.

Everyone partake in all these including Yoruba guys, Benin guys and Agbor guys.. Some of these Agbor cars have joined Zimbabweans into car hijackings. Bro some of our brothers here do shits just to survive. There thousands of legit hustle one can do here and survive but because they don't have vission they indulge into crimes which affect all Nigerians here

The most annoying part is some of them who ran away from Nigeria to S.A for whatever crime they committed in Nigeria arrived here and still continued instead changing their ways and correcting their mistakes. You did all your cult stuffs in Nigeria and escaped..Some of your fellow cult men have been killed in Nigeria but you escaped and came to South Africa.. Instead of you to change your ways and do something good for yourself you continued with your cult stuffs here.. Is that one not iberiberism?

Learn how to cut hair bro and you must be so good at it.

Learn how to sew clothes and you must be so good at it

Learn how to fix computer/phones and you must be so good at it

Learn how to fix cars, carpentry jobs, etc or even learn how to cook your clan delicacies.. Trust me you 'll not suffer when you come here.. Someone may need your services even if you don't have enough money to own your own shop.

I have a woman who owns her own company here, I can talk to her to help you out with invitation letter so that it 'll seem like you 're coming to work in her company. This will fetch you a long stay permit instead of the usual 7 days visiting visa.

If you 're interested PM me

Osman claims as many as 100 Somalis are killed each year in South Africa, especially in their shops, with little repercussion.

Osman the Somali said the above quoted in 2017. In this light, the Op’s article, at best, begins to look like excuses and at worst like encouragement to Xenophobia.

Look at what Osman said in 2017.



It was a Somalian guy that beheaded his South African wife and put her head in the fridge for 3years.. The same lady that sheltered him, provided for him, set him up financially

The same Somalian people that sell fake things to the people for consumption. The thing is that, I spoke about Nigerians, I didn't speak about foreigners in general here in S.A.. Every other foreign national commit one or the other crime here.

And saying that about 100 Somalian people were killed in 2017, I didn't hear of such here

If you live here and you 're honest to yourself, you would know that these South Africans have reasons to hate what foreign nationals are doing in their country.. How many crimes have those South Africans living in Nigeria have committed? I bet none. Compare that to the number of crimes Nigerians commit in their country then you would see reasons with me and stop thinking that I'm making excuses for Xenophobia. We also condemn Xenophobia here.

Ahh, so a Somali guy beheaded his South African wife and froze her head, this is why South Africans are xenophobic towards them, resulting in 100's of Somali death by South African mobs yearly. Ok what about Mozambicans, what do they do to deserve xenophobic attack and deaths by South Africans?

I will say it again, that most if not 90% of Xenophobia in this Country are all political moves as we have Boko Haram in Naija being sponsored by some Top Politicians. I 've lived here for 5yrs now but none of my friends has been killed by South Africans, none of the friends of my friends have been killed by them.. And You know in S.A. killing somebody is nothing, it's not a big deal. Quarrel might occur between South African and a Nigerian and the South African will from behind stab the Nigerian to death. This is how a Coloured South African killed a Nigerian in Cape town just because they faught in the club.
Zimbabweans kill Nigerians in the street when their stolen item business goes wrong, it's not Xenophobia, it's just a bad business or normal fight of which I also stated in my post that even Nigerians kill themselves just because a small quarrel. These things ain't Xenophobia, it's just how S.A is... I won't deny the fact that Some of these South Africans are aggressive by nature that they can kill over a small thing, this is as a result of things they went through in the hands of white people during apartheid regime.

I'm not defending or making excuses for Xenophobia but I'm just tryna balance you here on how things happen here

You have statistical evidence for this? For instance, there are 299,310 Nigerians in America. Now, 70% of 299 310 = 209517; you're saying 299,310 nigerians in America are criminals. The 2011 Census recorded 191,183 Nigerian-born /residents in England and Wales. 70% of 191 183 =
133828.1; your saying 133828 Nigerians are criminals in Britain?

Lets see if the figures below justifies your claim in this instance:

There were 270 Nigerian prisoners out of a total of 9,349 foreign nationals in UK jails at the end of 2017, according to the latest statistics.8 Mar 2018. In the US prisoners of Nigerian background is negligible.
