A Nigerian man residing in the United States has said that contrary to the picture of bliss and perfection that many paint after traveling abroad, the truth is that life in foreign countries is hard.
Afam, who is also a Twitter influencer said many abroad-based people will not share the secret even with their friends, adding that only a few genuine people will do so.
According to him, the secret of staying abroad can only be discovered abroad. He said Nigerians should not allow themselves be deceived by beautiful photos and the nice weather because life is not as easy as depicted.
He wrote; ”The secret of the abroad is in the abroad. Only few genuine people that probably like you will tell you the truth. Don’t be deceived by the beautiful pictures and weather.
Abroad is not easy, this is not me discouraging anyone coz I know say some of una no get comprehension.”
