Man speaks on how to enjoy living in Nigeria
According to him, Nigeria is enjoyable if you do not have to pay rent, not work a traditional 9-5 job unless it pays well, or have parents or a sugar daddy/sugar mummy to cover expenses.
Speaking further, he cautioned against moving back if one has to rely on a low-paying 9-5 job.
Difficulties for content creators in Nigeria
The young man also highlighted the challenges faced by content creators and e-commerce brands in Nigeria.
He mentioned that recording content becomes difficult as there are charges imposed wherever they go.
“I moved back to Nigeria a year ago and these are some of the things I realized. Nigeria is fun to live if your lifestyle is subsidized, if you’re not paying your rent or doing a 9-5 job except if your 9-5 job pays you well.
“Or if your parents pay your bills or If you have a sugar daddy or sugar mummy paying your bills, Nigeria is amazing to live in. But if you have to go to 9-5 and they are paying you scraps, don’t move back.
“Secondly, if you are a content creator or e-commerce brand, It is hard to record content in Nigeria cos anywhere you go, they charge you.”
