      Hmm america no easy again o, super competitive to get a job, rent going so high. Either you go back to school to get another degree, or work twice as hard to gain skills. For those who already have the connections, theres more money in Lagos.

    In this context and based on the intention of Macron’s visit, is it a Nollywood thing. I feel it is an African music and African art thing. So why are our famous or not so famous Nollywood divas standing like its AMVCA’s ??? Just saying *walks away while rotating bumbum*

    That 11 year old artiste is amazing. If only naija has the resources to take him very far.

      Naija has the resources , just that myopic, selfish looting leaders do not care for the future generation.
