Nigerian media personality, Afam, has advised women about the dangers of moving abroad without being married or having a committed partner.
Afam, who remarked that it is difficult for single Nigerian girls to find a husband abroad, recommended individuals seeking to relocate to at least have a serious boyfriend in Nigeria before departing, in a series of Twitter thread.
He added that while a man can find himself a partner even in his 70s, it is not the same for a woman. He urged single Nigerian women in the diaspora to be deliberate about finding a man.
According to him, everyone needs somebody, and being lonely amid so much wealth can be depressing.
In his words,
“As a single Nigerian babe that moved to the US, Canada, or the West, you have to be conscious about getting a man, coz you can easily be carried away with making all that money, and wake up one morning alone in your 50s, with a house, car, no child, no partner. We live in a world where a man can wake-up in his 70s, and always find a woman to wife, but unfortunately, it is not the same for women. Don’t let anybody deceive you. This is reality. Everybody needs somebody. While you are making that money, please make conscious efforts to find a man.
Loneliness in the midst of so much wealth is very depressing. It is even worset when you don’t have a child. Ask those experiencing it, it’s not fun. Again, make a very conscious effort to find a man while making all that money. This is coming from a place of love. If you like insult your fada. When you are done, go find yourself a man. 💛
Oh, let me add. Ladies, if you are planning japa and have that serious boyfriend in Nigeria, pls hold him tight. If possible, make sure you both japa together. If you can sponsor it, please do. Don’t japa alone thinking you gon find a man over there. Some might find, many won’t.
For places like UK, it is difficult. Those boys there will f*ck you shege. UK boys are the real demons. Again, if you have a boyfriend, hold him tight and make sure y’all leave together. Life is all about risk. Whatever choice you make, be ready for the consequences. Udo! 💛”
