Home, Sweet-Home They Say. Whenever the home is not rosy/palatable for the homies (dwellers), hope lies outside the beloved "home" for individual/group survival, and development (financial, social, psychological...). Nigerians irregardless of their complexities (ethnic groups, religion, race...) spread across the face of the earth like the sky. Why?
Invariably, Nigerians of any color is seen as a tourist with different motive/goal achievable through socially acceptable means or the societal forbidden fruits. Forbidden fruits used in this realm is a frowned at form of behavior locally or internationally. Although a forbidden fruit in diaspora might not be such at home, one needs to be cautious of where he is; thereby accepting and internalizing their realities.

By reputation, African nations (particularly Nigerians) have been underscored in various fronts as they relate with outer worlds (other Nations of today). In essence, Nigerian like other blacks are branded/labeled as bad omen due to the way they have interacted with others- which is why Donald Trump's discrimination against blacks race is worthy of reckoning.
Nonetheless, the household name for the forbidden fruits ate by Nigerians in diaspora is "crime". Although crime is a part of every living activity but it is quite worrisome when the perpetrator of such act is an outsider - a native of other land/nation. Such frowned at form of behaviour are;
- cyber crime
- drug sales and trafficking
- prostitution (male and female)
- 491 (Advanced form of 419- fraudster)
- organ sale (kidney/liver)
All the above are fashioned out as a surviving scheme in diaspora either to replenish the family members at home or for a status change. These acts has therefore brought the Nigeria's name to dust due to deportation rates, importation bans, temporal/lifetime imprisonment and at the extreme public extradition (deaths).
Note: the forbidden fruits in question are held in high esteem by nations today which made it attract severe punishment to any perpetrator. GOD BLESS NIGERIA to the extent that checking out other nations will only be for tourism and not for SURVIVAL.
