    Depends on your profession and which part of Africa you are coming back too – Because in Nigeria, Lawyers and Accountants have turned Nigerian citizens into slaves for financial benefit by directly infringe on inalienable rights through laws and various degrees of rent seeking processes.

    Nigeria is no longer a place you come and be prosperous, Nigeria is becoming a place where you come and be enslaved to lawyers and accountants.

    colorism in Nigeria is an artefact of the system that has been put in place to suppress any chance you might have to succeed in your own country. since its people that have nothing to contribute to the society that now hold all the wealth and are the richest, only stupid things can sell, since everyone else is now living in a slavery system.

    i argue that only things lawyers and accountants like and understand.

    no business prosperity for the rest of us means people that can actually make things can not grow their businesses, hence the country must import and have importation culture.

    the rent seeker’s business model isnt dependent on any real economics – its all free and enslavement/rent seeking money. they can spend it on any stupid thing they like.

    Oh Burna Boy, you aren’t very coherent neither does it seem like you read much and I draw this conclusion because of this interview. Yes, become an entertainer but please don’t abandon education. Sigh! I know blood diamond because I am from Nigeria? We all know? Really?!
