It baffles me why Africans living abroad are always looking for each others downfall , especially in work places. I have observed that most Africans , especially Nigerians, are always jealous when u are making a progress far ahead of the others in a work place, and they will direct all their malicious whims and caprices at making you fall.
What i am wondering is - Our African people don't get bothered if it is his british coleague who is making a progress in their work place, but as soon as an African like him is getting all the patts on the back, His feelings of hate balloons up, and he will stop at nothing to destroy him. WHY
Another thing i also don't understand is this - Why is it that most African ladies always like to threaten their men , whether boyfriend, or hubby with calling the Immigration Enforcement Authorities at him, anytime a slight disagreement happens between them. I observe that this don't happen when you are dating a British citizen , whether white or black. The worst the Brit will do when u offend her ,is she wont want to have anything to do with you again, no matter how much you plead.
Do African women see their gaining permanent residency abroad as some form of power and control over their partner
I ve also come accross a lot of african ladies on dating sites with screaming instructions -BRITISH /CARRRIBEANS ONLY PLS, SORRY, I DONT DO AFRICANS!!!!
This are cases that happen day-in-day-out, that i have heared about here in the UK.
Other cultures stay in unison, especially people from the Carribean, why are africans different ? This is the reason why most Nigerians in the UK will not keep their country men as friends, same goes for other African countries.
The other time, at the last Notting Hill carnival, i met a friend with whom I did NYSC Nigeria, and we chatted about old times and even exchanged numbers. After that ,she wont pick my calls , and wont call me either. I soon found out its the order of the day arround here, because i ve met a lot of other long-lost friends, who has done the same. So i don't bother taking pples numbers anymore, because Nigerians don't like to keep Nigerian friends abroad- and i don't blame them!!
I think its about time we talked about this lack of unison among Africans in diaspora, especially in the UK.
