Social media influencer, Reno Omokri, has ignited a passionate discourse across social media platforms with his recent message urging Nigerians contemplating emigration to think twice before pursuing the allure of greener pastures abroad.

In a thought-provoking tweet, Reno issued a cautionary note against being swayed by the idyllic image painted by friends who have successfully “japa’ed,” or emigrated from Nigeria.

Reno Omokri, well-known for his insightful commentary, advised potential emigrants to think carefully about the decision.

He emphasized that while legal migration can be a worthy pursuit, there are various factors to consider before taking the plunge.

One of the key points raised by Reno was the changing dynamics of relationships with friends who have already made the journey abroad.

He pointed out that some friends who have settled overseas might distance themselves, often because they never expected their friends to secure visas and fear the potential burden of accommodating them.

Moreover, Reno emphasized the importance of financial independence for immigrants seeking success in foreign lands.

Many who thrive abroad are engaged in businesses that do not require physical presence, such as leveraging intellectual property, e-commerce, or monetizing their social media presence.

The social media influencer shed light on the harsh reality faced by numerous immigrants who find themselves caught in the relentless rat race.

Many work multiple jobs, often enduring a demanding 9-5 schedule, with the risk of losing their possessions should they miss three consecutive payments.

Reno argued that owning property in Nigeria, like a bungalow in Lugbe, FCT, or a flat in Oworonshoki, Lagos, can place individuals in a more stable position than some social media personas abroad, whose apparent lavish lifestyles may be heavily mortgaged.

Reno’s message has evoked a wide range of reactions on the internet, with some commending his forthrightness, while others criticize him for delving into personal choices and decisions.
