Don’t be pressured to ‘japa’ – BBNaija star, Leo advises Nigerians

Big Brother Naija 2018 star, Leo Babrinde DaSilva has urged Nigerians to resist the urge to travel by any means necessary simply because many people are doing it.

He took to Twitter and asked that his countrymen should not allow themselves be put under pressure to join the ‘japa syndrome’.

Leo noted that from his experience it is people who are wealthy that mostly have the means to leave the country.

He tweeted; “Don’t be pressured to japa. Seen many comfortable people japa. Infact na comfortable people japa pass.”

A tweep known as @OmoreAdugbe commented; It easier when you have everything on your table. So japa won’t be on the list. I will say when you are comfortable you won’t even think about it….. imagine an average person who is trying to survive. No uncle or broda that will support is dream. 💯 japa speed just saying

@OmoreAdugbe; Comfortable has different level. There are some comfortable that the parent are just average. But there are some that you don’t need to travel everything is there just grab it. But there are some you only have 2 meals a day, no hope for tomorrow. This last set japa is 💯
