Former rapper, Eldee says leaving Nigeria changed his life
United States of America-based Nigerian ex-musician cum IT consultant, Lanre Dabiri, better known as Eldee has stated that there have been no regrets following his relocation overseas.
The former rapper said on social media that he may have to steal to become what he is now in the US if he was to be in Nigeria.
Eldee relocated to the US after tying the knot with his heartthrob, Dolapo Latinwo-Belo in 2008.
Specifically, one of Eldee’s fans with the username [@Shawn_Boy12] on Instagram had said on the media app that “Nothing dey Yankee (America). Na depression. It’s a trillion times easier to make it in Nigeria than America. America is overrated”.
Eldee however reacted differently to the fan’s claim, saying that it was a different story for him. Eldee said he is now able to acquire the things he had desired a decade ago after departing Nigeria for the US.
”It’s all about perspective. Everybody’s journey is different. The real question is what your definition of ‘make it’ is,” said Eldee in response to the fan’s post.
He added: “I don’t for a second regret my Japa (relocation). My life today is exactly as I envisioned it in 2012 when I decided I was finally done with my Naija journey.
“We all have different goals and priorities in life. I chose to be rich, overlooking the rich. The only way I could’ve accomplished what I have today in Naija is if I stole the money …and I no sabbi thief” he added.
