Why I had to Travel to Nigeria…

Juliana Belova gives her account of the story. She provides a clear explanation of why she chose to immigrate to Nigeria.

During my time in Russia, I had Nigerian friends who played a significant role in introducing me to Nigerian comedy. They would frequently share hilarious skits on their social media, and I found myself captivated by the unique humor portrayed in those videos. It dawned on me that people actually lived their lives with such spontaneity, waking up every day to create skits that brought joy to others. I developed a strong affinity for Nigerian comedy and felt a deep desire to be part of it. Despite never having been to Nigeria before, I knew deep down that this was what I wanted to pursue – comedy and video creation.

With determination in my heart, I dedicated two and a half months to saving enough money to make the journey. Eventually, I gathered sufficient funds and embarked on a solo trip to Nigeria without knowing anyone there.

My first encounter with Nigeria was love at first sight. As soon as I landed, I immediately noticed a distinct aroma in the air, unique to this country. I remember thinking, “Wow, what is this delightful scent?” Stepping outside, even at 4 a.m., I was greeted by intense heat that took me by surprise. It made me wonder how much hotter it would get when the sun rose. 

Initially, I was apprehensive, fearing that I might suffer from sunburn, but to my relief, that didn’t happen. I became increasingly fascinated by everything around me – the lively people, their passionate disputes, the ubiquitous presence of sachet water, and the open gutters. Every aspect of Nigeria seemed to captivate me, and I simply fell in love with it.

Presently, my aspirations revolve around creating skits, and there are a few individuals I greatly admire in the Nigerian comedy scene. My dream is to collaborate with the likes of Mr. Macaroni, Broda Shaggi, and Lasisi, as they are my personal favorites in the industry.
