Nigerian Popular skit maker, Zicsaloma, has taken to Twitter to shared his opinion on the popular ‘japa’ trend among young Nigerians, said he does not admire being a second-class citizen in another country.
According to him, it seems like many have given up on the country, adding that he wished many youths would stay back to build the country they desire, recounting the first time he traveled to South Africa and Dubai before he became a house hold name in Nigeria and did not think twice about returning back to Nigeria.
Zicsaloma said he still had faith in Nigeria and really wants young people to stay back and ensure the country works. He went on to advise young Nigerians who are keen on leaving to get adequate information about their preferred country and their immigration laws and not just decide to move because the country is beautiful .
“I don’t know, but I feel somehow when I see people congratulate people who ‘japad’. It seems everyone is hopeless about the Nigerian situation; being a second class citizen in another man’s country is not something I admire at all.”
Zicsaloma said he made that post because It is his dream to see Nigeria work and not because he has money in Nigeria as many people think. I first traveled to South Africa and Dubai before I became a house hold name in Nigeria and did not think twice about returning.
