A Nigerian man has complained bitterly about his experience one week after relocating to the United Kingdom.
He traveled along with his wife as part of their plan to start afresh only for him to find himself living in a one room apartment.
In a video recorded by his wife, the man who spoke Igbo language was reminding her that he was living very comfortably in a duplex when he was still in Nigeria.
He recalled that they had a room just for clothes and to store items whereas they cannot move around freely in their UK apartment that cost $1,400.
She made jest of him and wondered why he was lamenting especially because he was the one who came up with the idea and suggested the move abroad.

In other news, a young man identified as Dave Partner has warned African parents about the dangers of sending their children abroad to study at an early age.
In an advisory video making the rounds online, he said any parent who send their kids to school in other countries too early have lost them forever.
According to Dave, the number of times they may see their son or daughter again might not be up to 10 times before they die.
He said the fact that some people are rich enough to send their wards to US, UK or Canada does not mean they should do it when they are still minors.
He explained that they get accustomed to the new sociaty they are living in, and embrace a foreign culture which is alien to that of an African home.
The business trainer said one of the factors which influences a child’s change in character is what he learns in school, either from teachers of his fellow students.
Dave Partner said that the parent might only be able to see them when they graduate or after getting married to a white lady.
He further said that they will also not be interested in taking over the family business because they did not learn anything about it from their mum or dad.
The man stressed that there are a lot of things that change the child overseas which are enough to make them become distant and detached from their roots.
