January 17, 2018 – Nollywood Yoruba Actor Femi Ogedengbe Now Works As Security Guard In The United States

God has turned things around for popular Nollywood actor Femi Ogbedengbe who relocated to the United States of America back in 2016 but his relocation costs him something.

The actor as we speak is still unable to get himself together a year after he relocated his wife and kids to the US.

Media sources claimed that the actor is now a full time Security Guard with Kesight Tech, a fortune 500 company based in San Francisco, California.

However, the actor is not a Gardner as widely reported on the social media, he is working as a professional security guard, a job most immigrants start with when they first entered the United States or when they are in school.

Working as a security guard in the US doesn’t have the kind of stigma people attach to it in Nigeria and other African countries.

So let’s not feel bad for Mr Ogbedengbe as if he is suffering.

    Naijagist makes me laugh. You said this guy left Nigeria in 2016 and he has not settled down. Let me say this, that guy is even lucky to get that kind of job. There are some people who are still struggling to settle down in 5-10 years and yet find themselves in a tough situation. In order to get yourself situated in the United States, it will take you a minimum of 3 solid years i.e if you come here with VISA lottery. In that case, you have already been issued a Green Card right before you left Nigeria. The only thing left for you is how you can get a high paid job with the type of skill you brought with you. That is how I arrived at minimum of 3 years for settling down.

    On the order hand if you manage to sneak here with your regular 2 years VISA, you are in for a long ride. It is not easy to get your status change or secure a Green Card. All these take a long process up to a decade. During this transition period you may not have a well paid job. That is why you see people doing 2 or 3 jobs trying to survive. When I came in early 90’s there was no VISA lottery program then, you either marry Akata or if you are lucky your job may file for you if it is allowed under Immigration Act. The painful aspect of this is, after 1996, people started coming with VISA lottery where they don’t have to queue for Green Card like me. I don’t know much about this guy Femi status but for him to get security job within a year means he is doing ok. I got that security job in the late 90’s after I have managed to get my Green Card.

    Naijagist, whatever I write here is direct from horses mouth. l live here in the United States and I understand perfectly how the system works. There is no gain in misleading people, I just want to let the newcomers get the true picture of America. I came here in early 90’s from Europe (Holland) after my 2 years of residing there, I managed to box myself into the US. I was young at that time under 30. I had no clue what I was into. It took me good 10 years to get myself situated. One thing about US is there is no short cut. UZOMA and other US based Naijagists commenters can attest to this. I have to work myself up to shake off my terrible experience. There is no time for to write all my story in a single comment, may be if Naijagist is ready to pay me to narrate all my ordeal, then I will go bit by bit in analyzing this for the new dreamers.

    In spite of all that, I have reason be thankful to God because, I never taught I will be privileged to work in US Government. All my struggle pays off at the end. As for Femi, I think he is doing ok with what he is doing now.

      May be you should take your take to read the story before firing back at the writer. In what way is the writer accusing Mr Ogedengbe of suffering.
      Yes journalists are suffering in Nigeria but e go better. One day na one day we too go waka reach America.
