Why Are Some Useless Naija In Girls In Yankee Claiming They Are From Jamaica?

I have met three Naija girls in the past month who, unbeknowst to them that I am a Naija dude, have told me they are Jamaicans when I asked where are they from? But when I sense their Naija accent and ask them whether they are sure, and when I introduce myself as a straight up Lagosian, they now get defensive and start giving me some rooster and bull story. Why lie about where you are from? Those girls are, in my books, silly, because they denied the country from which they came.

I understand that there are negative news about Nigeria swirling around, but that by no means, in my own view, gives any Nigerian a legitimate reason to denounce their country by claiming allegiance to the country of another.

They actually reply when you ask them? I know someone who once gave them the run around. Had them call a local fast food and all. It was very funny

Nigerian girls claiming to be Jamaicans is akin to PLATINUMK claiming to be beautiful; both claims clearly untruths!!!!

mamagee, it is not that serious, for it is your prerogative to decide which country to claim; you can even claim Haiti. Again, you are sounding a little bit defensive. All I know is that if the people to whom you after claiming you are from England thereafter find out you are from Nigeria, you will appear like a fake person who has denied her heritage. It is therefore possible that people will lose the respect they had for you upon finding out that you claimed another country from which you are not an indigene. This will make you appear like a bonafide liar or someone who does not speak with candor. It is just a word of wisdom, take it or leave it. Shikenah.

people should claim whatever they want to claim, but the fact remains the vast majority do for reasons either of vanity (they want to be "exotic"), immigration purposes (to get paper), or for financial reasons.

and yes, some do it out of genuine hatred of Nigeria but most times it simply boils down to the above three, imo.

Are you blind beyond Cure?

Did you ever read a line that says people would judge me because of my country

Please, read clearly before replying to people least you make yourself sound psychoic.

And do you want to cry because I said I can't lose my dignity for a useless country like Nigeria?

Face it, I'm not representing that sicko of a country, Call it representative of a country or call it patriotic

That's your business, all I know Nigeria is ruled by dementia-suffering thieves in Agbadas and Caps

And I'm not ready to cause anymore damage to my name.

some Nigerians just feel it makes them look more "exotic" if they call themselves jamaican.

Men do it too.

they like thinking they're being "mistaken" for non-Nigerians.

Lol. . .people lie about their country of origin for a myriad of reasons.

1) Certain jobs - you may possibly be denied certain positions, especially if the company's a relatively small one, and it's a position of trust.

2) Business - a lot of people won't deal with Nigerians, unless they know you very well.

3) Finance - some of the smaller finance companies will deny Nigerians credit facilities. Some Nigerians will abscond with a loan from their own family - brother, sister, mother, father, cousin etc. Some Nigerians are distrusted by their own families, and we know bad news travels fast.

Some Nigerians talk of patriotism, and see Nigerians that deny their homeland as losers, or worse. It's great being patriotic, but patriotism won't put food on your table, clothes on your back, a roof over your head etc. I have come across Nigerians who have been quite upfront with me, and told me they denied they were Nigerian when going for job interviews, after being denied decent jobs in the past. I wouldn't call such Nigerians losers.

I'd call them smart. They know how to play the game, and beat the system. Obviously, some Nigerians deny they're Nigerian just because they feel it makes them more accepted, nothing to do with work, loans, business etc. I wouldn't judge them either - only they know their history, and what Nigeria has done for them.

And what Nigeria hasn't done for them.

beyond the inferiority complex or dodging from bad reputation, you have to know that most of these girls are ashamed to admit that they are from Africa because of the negative image we are constantly given in the media and when they are talking and you hear their naija accent and you ask where the accent is from if you say naija people run scared like oh i heard of you Nigerians and your scams. also most of these people still do not have their papers so they figure if they say Jamaica they wouldn't be suspected of being illegals

Yeah I remember meeting a guy once. He claimed to be American. The truth is, his accent was straight out of Nigeria.

What these people are lacking, is that they do not know that confidence, is sexy.

That whole "Be yourself" speech we all got (too often) in highschool, was NOT a joke.

That's why it's a silly thing to do. But sometimes sha, the things our people sometimes do to ruin our rep outside, it's painful and can make you feel really defensive, but still no reason to be lying and denying the fatherland.

Bad rep or not, be yourself. Pretending to be someone they're not would only get them so far.

I think because in some places with a high naija concentration, some bad eggs might have given naija girls a bad rep so they're trying to pretend to attract the non-naij bunch and seem more exotic. I don't know sha. I would never do that. Not only because it's incredibly silly, but also because I would actually die of shame if I was nabbed like you nabbed those girls.

That's their prerogative. what do they stand to gain from a lie so silly?

Are they looking to increase their chances of hooking up with Jamaican dudes or Americans?
