He said: “I moved back to Nigeria a year ago and these are some of the things I realized. Nigeria is fun to live if your lifestyle is subsidized, if you’re not paying your rent or doing a 9-5 job except if your 9-5 job pays you well. 

“Or if your parents pay your bills or If you have a sugar daddy or sugar mummy paying your bills, Nigeria is amazing to live in. But if you have to go to 9-5 and they are paying you scraps, don’t move back.
