I read some comments and i could not stop laughing at all.

The bottom line is for people coming to UAE with only BSc certificate without no experience, be prepared to start with menial jobs which can be 50/50. You fit get am and at same time, you might no get it and go back home bllb.

UAE is for patient people who can also make sacrifices.

For menial jobs, you can earn from 1000aed to less than 2k, but overtime this will be not be enough again. By the time you spend on yourself here, spend on your family back home, how much is left If a person in this kind of situation decides to come back home, then there will be no much savings.
The best thing to do is to up your game, make sacrifices, go for your choice of professional courses to get more opportunities. If you are already in a professional line in Nigeria that you can fall back on in uae, then you can get to uae and hit it big immediately or you have done some professional certificates in Nigeria with experience, then you can be lucky to get to uae and hit the ground runnining instantly.

I got to UaE in 2015 on taxi job. I did it for 3yrs, moved to another company for 2yrs. Spent heavily on professional courses( it was pain in the ass at the moment ehnn). Now am with a third company with my bsc and professional courses and i just look at myself sometimes and i say na so uae be with better job. I just have to thank God.

Guys, it took me 5yrs to find a very good platform here in uae. So for people with only bsc, no experience and thinking of coming to dubai to hit it immediately, the experience is not alwayz good at the end and they will never advise anyone to come to UAE at all. This life na to get first hand info and be ready to take one step at a time. The situation you find yourself whether with only bsc, with experience etc depend on where you start taking your step

Hey bro,

Do you have experience in the process of setting up company there in UAE as a crypto trader?


Thanks for great videos as always.

As a crypto trader, what kind of services do you plan to render with the company?
Do you want to trade for people and give them returns on investments? Do you want to exchange crypto for local cash?
It will help to know your intention with the company

I came to Dubai November 2021 for an ISO standard course in Non Destructive Testing. It cost 5k Dirahms approx. 650k NGN. January i got a job of 2600 UAD. Still it's not the best i can get. After couple of months of experience here, i will do more courses and 15k a month is possible for a black man to get here. Plan before leaving or you won't find it funny
Re: Fact Check: Can A Nigerian Really Make It Legitimately In Dubai? by ELKHALIFAISIS(m): 7:04am On May 03
Yes you can... least you can get as salary in uae is 1300aed if you are working with any of these dubious India companies that pays less , if converted to naira according to our weak currency you are sure of 200k naira every month, people earn thrice than that some even 10k aed about 1.4m naira monthly. if you are doing street hustling like beer selling which is illegal some places , no how in a day u are not sure of 100aed about 13,000 naira every day after expenses if you can save , in a month you will be remitting 300k naira to ur local account, moreover feeding are extremely low compared to Nigeria a bag of 50kg rice is 35k naira , there you can get it 15k naira , wetin u won chop to finish 50kg in 3 months...Nigeria should not be compare with any sane countries again, if you want to compare Nigeria with others ,use Afghanistan, Syria, Zimbabwe, Somalia, Yemen and Iraq these are failed states in Nigeria category

Whenever I post videos and threads here, sometimes I do notice some people's negative comments on my threads; all pointing to one thing; they don't believe my posts.

First, I want you to know I am a Nigerian living fine in Dubai (legitimately)

Second, all my videos are based on factual information. My sources are from my experience and realities of Nigerians over here too.

Lastly, if you love and adore Nigeria, great! My videos are for people hoping to come to Dubai, UAE or any other Arab countries for greener pastures.

Now that aside, do Nigerians really make it in Dubai and UAE as a whole... Yes (although, as expected, not everybody)

How do they do it and how can you grow yourself in Dubai even as a Nigerian? It is mainly by working hard and working smart.

1) To work smart, don't depend on menial or 1000 dirhams jobs like construction, cleaning, car wash etc. Yes, these jobs can sustain you but if you want to be able to save and spend better, you will need to aim higher.

It is rare to find nationalities like Phillipines doing these menial jobs because they are very resilient when it comes to working at their dream positions.

You may say they employ based on nationality, but what are you bringing to the table? You speak English better, that's not the only thing needed. How about

2) Experience; I keep saying it experience is golden over here. Companies want you to say you have experience in your field; thats the first thing they wanna hear before seeing your certificate.

3) Get a certification course; This is for folks who don't have certificates in the professional line like Law, Medicine, Engineering etc or looking for a more flexible career. There are many job courses you can do at Dubai that their pay are more than menial jobs. They include;

Barista, Safety, Caregiver, Life Guard, Graphics Design CNA, and I.T. all affordable and lucrative courses. You can even study one of these courses before coming to Dubai.

Although I explained them all with their full prices and potential returns in my video, I will explain two here.

CNA- this course is for people looking to be assistant nurses, it takes about 3-4 months and the pay is around 3000(#300,000+) or more dirhams per month

Barista - Coffee business is so lucrative in Dubai. This course teaches you how to brew coffee. Lessons can take a week or two weeks max. pay ranges from 1500 -2000 dirhams.

Yes, it is not a crime to start small. I started as a car washer too when I got to Dubai I 2015, I washed more than 150 cars in a week but I didn't stop there, I went for certifications and now I thank God today.

Trust me, Nigerians are making it through these jobs, you can do them to grow too. Thanks.

I stayed in dubai for four years earning a better salary higher than what I used to earn as a core staff of two Nigerian banks (despite this,I wasn't satisfied with myself been a graduate earning 340k in dubai....... Reason is because with my experience I was expecting something better and more befitting) .
Despite all this , I had challenges getting my dream jobs as a result of few wicked Nigerians who had complicated things for the rest of us . Travelling to GCC countries for greener pastures should be mainly for singles who can still hustle . I left dubai finally when I saw it all and preferred Nigeria my home country . Ever since I returned,I haven't regretted a single day.
I am a proud farmer doing well now and not working for anybody . Am my own boss's having people working for me as I also pay salaries. More wins

Just 2011..... welcome bro
I came 2008 then to Russia and Canada.
Disregard my handwriting.
But just know your level and stop talking rubbish


What is puffing you up?
People living in those places you mentioned still have same experience of UAE, except you wrote that sentence just to downgrade people living there or to puff up like poff poff, mentioning names of your imaginations, places that trips you in UAE or to showcase yourself a rich goon which matured rich people dont do this days due to insecurity and kidnapping.
Note that people living in those places never created theirselves or placed theirselves there, just that jobs, careers, choices or poverty took them there...

2008 to now is like 13 years added to your claimed year of coming to UAE (2008) maybe when you were 20 years which will bring your age to around 33 years and as a lady, you should be getting to granny stage now,
Please get some sense...

Have you done any legal work in UAE?
If yes tell me the name of your company because i have mentioned mine in my former post not doing some illegal shits and be forming posh online...

I dont want to mention what most ladies do for a living (Prostitution) in UAE and Russia you mentioned...

So stop feeling fly...
We all will not leave this world alive.
