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…
- 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…:)
