It is not new that most of these young Nigerian entrepreneurs decided to delve into job creation because the government failed to provide jobs.
Guys, if you can create a start up in Nigeria and you are successful, then you can make it anywhere in the world. I know no Nigerian would argue this fact!
Nigerian entrepreneurs are serious hustlers because they know where they are coming from and cannot afford to fail. A naija hustler is way different from any hustler. When I mean hustling please don't mistake it for those G boys oo. Lol
If you can make something out of nothing, my brother you are an hustler. That is being creative.
REASONS NIGERIAN ENTREPRENEURS ARE HUSTLERS
1. To survive: With the massive unemployment in Nigeria, nobody will tell you to hit the streets with an idea in order to make money. Many start ups today where borne out of the desire of their owners to survive.
2. We can do all things: An average Nigerian graduate has an idea in almost every kind of business. No wonder an engineering or law graduate lands banking job and he does it perfectly well.
3. We are street smart: According to OLUFISAYO Nigerians are literarily born to be street smart, because we find every possible ways to achieve our goals and we hardly take no for an answer.
