I’ll Rather Die In Nigeria Than Travel Abroad To Beg – Ibrahim Chatta

Check out the excerpt of Ibrahim Chatta’s viral true confession about his travel history.

Here is what he told Sunday Scoop when asked why he doesn’t brag about trips abroad unlike many of his colleagues.

“I have never travelled out of this country except to the Republic of Benin.

Most times, I hear that people travel to other developed countries to beg; I don’t want to be like that. Right now, I am working on a movie and I will need to hold the premiere in the UK, America, South African and Dubai. If I eventually go to those places, I know it is for a purpose.

“There are many amazing places I’ve never visited in Nigeria too. I only go to locations from my house and return home afterwards.

I’ve been invited to America and Canada for awards, but God has not given me the privilege to visit yet. I have not been to Mecca too, but it is my priority to go before I die and I am not leaving the world soon.”

He admitted that it was a great thing for one to travel but noted that Nigerians needed to love their country. The actor added,

“People are always saying Nigeria cannot be good; we should stop saying that. We are not patient and patriotic enough. I have never been to the US but I can tell you nice things about New York and Washington. I saw those things in movies. Films should be avenues to project our country in a positive light but we don’t do that here. I will die in Nigeria because it is my country.”

Urging everyone to play a role to make Nigeria a better place, Chatta said,

“Fifty per cent of my income goes to people, though I’m still a poor man. I work every day to survive.

If I go to the bank, the staff members and people in the queue always want to favour me but I wait for my turn.

I am tired of hearing people saying terrible things about Nigeria.

I know many of my colleagues who are supporting one party or the other because of what they stand to gain but the love of the country should come first.”

  5. Dear Oga Chatta, may God bless you that I see you a best actor and also the stories of yoruba films are so fantastic. Please don’t mind those who insulted you that one day they may eat their own vomits. I know they are ashamed. I’m still on abroad but really homesick that I’m missing Nigeria. It’s true that some beg but in reality most are suffering as I am that U.S. and EU plus other countries are the places to work and to pay the bills all the life. Don’t mind their twisted tongues and that one day they may be confused when they grow old. God bless you.
