- Newlywed comedian Williams Uchemba has taken to social media with a lengthy note about the state of Nigeria
- The comedian who is currently on vacation in South Africa made a comparison between the countries as he praised the level of development in SA
- Uchemba rounded up his note by asking fellow Nigerians about what is really stalling the rapid development of the country
Comedian and Nollywood actor, Williams Uchemba, has been in South Africa for some time and it appears the level of development in the country has made him reflect deeply about the situation of things back home in Nigeria.
The actor in a recent post shared on his Instagram page noted that he woke up sad and depressed about the state of his home country.
Uchemba, in his lengthy post, said he has lived in western parts of the world and it is easier to justify the development in those countries because the whites occupy them. However, the actor said it is infuriating to know that South Africa can also undergo so much development despite being on the African continent.
"Now, I’ve lived in the western world in the past, both in the UK and US, and when I ask this question I justify my depression with well it’s a white man’s country that’s why they are ahead but why I’m really angry in this case is that we are talking about the same continent."
The comic star pointed out that Nigerian has the largest economy in Africa yet citizens still require visas to visit South Africa.
Uchemba went on to commend the level of development in South Africa and how the country has been able to make the best from mining, industry and tourism.
"In 2016 alone 16 million tourists visited SA and that number has steadily increased since then. 16 million guys and tourism only adds 2.8% to their GDP. Even with the corruption in their country the leaders are still steadily growing their industries and sectors."
The comedian in a different portion of his post went on to ask fellow Nigerians about what is really wrong asides from bad leadership structure and lack of vision.
