Good and lovely but I have heard how Russians are hostile to the blacks. Most of the Russian project I promoted their Cryptocurrency project never paid workers.
Please, what is President Putin's religion and his relationship the Jews. I love President Putin much. If there is a free scholarship to Russian schools I will love to apply thanks.

Today I cooked jollof rice and I'll go to the center of Saint Petersburg and ask Russians to try Nigerian jollof and tell me what they think about it. The few times I cooked jollof and shared with my Russian classmates, they all loved it. So today, 'll go out and see what the general public thinks about Nigerian jollof rice. Video will be out on my YouTube channel in a few days.

My best friend here in Russia is crazy about Nigeria food, he has tried jollof rice, egusi and okro and he can't seem to get enough of our food hahaha. His name is Roma and I want to use this opportunity to briefly tell you guys about Roma.

I think I'm blessed when it comes to friendships because all my adult life, I've been really fortunate to only meet and get close to really wonderful people. No matter how hardworking or self made you think you are, it's always important to acknowledge the people that have helped you in one way or the other to get where you are in life.

My friendship with Roma started the first day I resumed at HSE Saint Petersburg. After the first class, he came to me to know how I was handling the transition of moving to a new city and all the craziness of life at a new school. He genuinely showed interest in knowing me as a person which was really nice. It might seem insignificant to other people but it was a very nice gesture and it meant a lot to me. Been a different race especially in Russia can be very challenging, sad and quite depressing but having a friend like him made everything smooth and easy for me.

Roma and I particularly connected instantly because we had so many things in common. We are the oldest in our entire department, he just turned 23 and I am older than him. Other students in our department are mostly teenagers who just left high school so Roma and I bonded over our past failures, age, our dreams and the shared hope for a better tomorrow.

Also, Roma is one of the smartest people I've met my entire life. He was previously studying Applied Mathematics at Saint Petersburg State University before he had an issue in his final year and then moved to our University. This guy has a brilliant mind and he is so smart and knowledgeable about everything you can think of. He's literally a genius. Think of real life Sheldon Cooper level of Genius in the big bang theory. I usually feel so dumb whenever I'm around him cos this guy literary knows about everything but I like that cos I learn so much from him daily. Since the first day we met, we attend lectures together and sit in the same seat in every single class. We literally do everything together. He got married last year to his American girlfriend. He lived in America for years before returning to Russia and the girl he married, was his high school girlfriend in America.

Also, his parents are the most wonderful people I've met in Saint Petersburg. They are both medical practitioners and they usually invite me for dinner in their house and that's where I usually eat authentic Russian food hahahahaha.

Below are pics of Me and Roma and our classmate and friend Nastya. Also, Nastya is a good friend to me too. The picture I posted earlier from the culture fest, she is the one in the yellow Dashiki. I gave her the dashiki on her birthday. She also helped me a lot when I started at this Uni and she is like a little Sister to me.

I'm off to shoot videos for my channel so guys please subscribe to my YouTube channel abeg )

First picture - Me, Roma and Nastya.
Second picture - Russian Easter dinner at Roma and his family.
Third picture - Roma and I.
Fourth picture - Dinner with Roma and his family.

Why are some Nigerians intrusive? He told you he broke up with his girlfriend and it's a personal matter but some of you still want to know "why" not because you care about him, Why is it so hard to respect other people's decision?

Thanks bro. Life got in the way but I'm back for good and I'll update this thread frequently wink

My new video is out.

I cooked jollof rice and asked Russians to try the food and tell me what they think and here is what they have to say


https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aQMJeS8PCCs

Wow I love this and can really identify with their complain about pepper.
Whites generally don't do pepper. I realized back then in UK when my friends will eat my food and praise it but would complain about it being too spicy. Then when I cook with little pepper they still complain. They started calling me 'hot hot' grin grin

As a Nigerian I can't eat food with no pepper biko. Now compare our tropical temperature with their humid and cold one, na pepper overdose grin grin
I sha do dish out their portion when it's done before adding my pepper jor cheesy
