High end property in central london and close to the shopping districts!

Naijas will not kill me..But I am loving this though..’cause it is inspiring 😉

I saw the video below [Spotlight on Reparts] on Bella Naija and the comments….Wandaful.[I like Nigerians ’cause as much as they critique they are still very supportive]

The video spotlights the up and mobile generation of young Nigeria who have moved back home..

I loved the segment with  Nigeria’s billionaire Oscar Ibru, Mr “Join the love train” who encourages and mentors Returnees!

And that leads me to “The Returnees” poster video which I stare in..It was shared a couple of weeks ago and received a back lash of comments. I had to write a long post about it because I think Camers are quick at reacting to things in a very negative manner.  [….you don’t have to agree with me. The recent sagas on the Camer internet-0-sphere is proof how negative we can be]..I know some people will say I am a blogger and should be ready for public scrutiny…bla bla bla..I did not like where it was posted and already shut up to BS..’cause I believe in picking and choosing fights […..again feel free to disagree]

“The returnees”   video below is an intro video meaning “Introduction” to inform people about the show (documentary series) which is currently under production [By Miranda Oben & her team]

 

I woke up to tags.. So I no get energy for di respond for all man…So this is my response status….

I did not move back home in the best of conditions but I put my voice in the video ’cause  I think it is a good initiative and someone may learn one thing or other from my experience…

To summarize

  • Moving back is not glamorous and I am in no way trying to pass that message
  • It takes time to re-calibrate yourself and adjust into a new life. I have spent half of my life moving around the world so I appreciate this..Be patient with yourself and learn in the process
  • Have an entry strategy. What works for A may not work for B
  • Network Network Network.
  • Attitude is everything!

Plan Plan Plan..Have an A, B and C plan..Be around your support system. People often ask me why i am in Douala..That is home..Being around my family has definitely made a big difference.

Quoting someone I admire…”There is too much to do..Now is the time to build..I am done ranting”….and I have adopted this as one of my mantras..[,my rants are selective…;)]

Life is what you make of it. Make the best of where ever you are..

Who knows..It may just be you on a similar “Douala to London” or “Yaounde to New York” one day…:)

Aspire to Inspire!

  1. I watched that episode and because I am familiar with Miss DJ Cuppy girl and her super rich family since I occassionally follow her work on Social Media I was not surprised at their lifestyle.

    However, it should serve as an inspiration to people to work hard and enjoy the fruit of their labor and not hate on these Lagos to London type people! Afterall I am a NY to Yaounde type gal hahahahahahahaha AMEN!

  2. An interesting and thought provoking article.
    I agree on that score Naijans know how to critic and support their
    own while we love to spread only negative vibes about ours.
    I applaud the returnees. It is not easy but like you mentioned, a good plan will make it a little bit easier as one adapts after years away.

    • You can say that again..it is not easy adapting to a new life..Be it moving to or from where you have called home for some time..
