In brazil Most People Don't Work On Mondays

In my country, the most important day of the week is Monday because most people need to hustle and make money, and as the great musician in Nigeria said in his song, aro Monday Eko oni GBA GBA Ku Gba o. This simple means Lagosians must work on Mondays


In Nigeria, Mondays is for hustling but in Brazil, it is different lots of businesses don't work on Mondays in Brazil like some feiras and some other shops, feiras are like, let's say tejuosho market in Nigeria.


Me as a Lagos boy I work on Mondays and I don't seat at home, don't be surprised when you come To Brazil and see shop's closed on a Monday

In Brazil prostitution is legal .18+

This is very important so that you don't run into trouble trying to do what you are not supposed to do because in Brazil women have rights and women are free and like I told you already women wear bum shorts like pure water in Brazil and remember Brazilian women are hot and sexy, now imagine a hot and sexy woman on bum shorts.


In Africa, we harass women we see on bum shorts and there is video evidence online but in Brazil, women are free to dress the way they want


So if konji hold you which simply means if you are horny, please look for a Program girl that is what it is called in Brazil and it is legal and no police would arrest you

Have A Skill Before Coming To Brazil

This is very important because if you have a skill you won't go broke in Brazil and you would always make money, so before coming to Brazil learn a skill, any skill  and you would make money, even if you are a cobbler you would make money, where I live there is no cobbler, I have to take a bus to another area to fix my shoe and in Africa, the case is different because you find cobblers everywhere, so learn and have a  skill and you will enjoy Brazil, I didn't have a skill before coming to Brazil but now I do

How I got lost in Sao Paulo,Brazil

When I arrived in Brazil I landed in Sao Paulo and it was an experience that I would never forget, it was a dream come true for me and many of you love the USA or Canada but my dream country has always been Brazil, I started trying to come to Brazil since 2011, I love the country with all my heart.


When I landed I took a taxi to my hotel and for me, I personally like to explore, I didn't just sleep in my hotel, Now it was time to change money,  so I checked online and I took a taxi, I had no sim card yet to use uber or 99 the local Brazilian version. 


The taxi took me to a mall in the middle of the city and after Changing money it was time to go back and I was trying to cut costs because you all know how expensive it is to take a taxi, so I flagged a woman down and I entered and I wanted to stop at one spot where I could take a bus to my hotel but I Could not remember the name. Lol. I was lost. So she was just taking me round and round I could not figure out the place, so finally I told her just take me to my hotel and in the end, I spent 200reais on taxi fare, even the lady at the desk in the hotel was wondering what had happened to me because she knew I just arrived and this is why I wrote an article about what you need to start up in Brazil here so you don't make the same mistake that I did


I had to go look for food and I could not find I had to eat burgers for the whole day until I checked online and found a blog that interviewed a Nigerian man that sells Nigerian food and he is very popular in Sao Paulo his name is pastor and the man and his wife are very nice and so I went there and got real egusi soup, lol. My favorite, for my non-Nigerian Readers, just Google egusi soup.

Language Barrier: Coping As A Businessman In Brazil

One of the hardest parts of living in a non-English speaking country like Brazil is the language, that is the only thing that can really hold you down if you want it to, Brazilians love to help and they would understand you and even help you.

When I arrived in Brazil I started my own small business in 3months, a guy told me about the spot where he sells from and I bought the goods and started selling because I came to Brazil with money and I knew nothing about the language but I had no choice but to hit the ground running, one of the major challenges I had was the language and as a Lagos boy I had to adapt.

I didn’t sit down and cry or wail about the language, I just started selling and I also lost a lot because most times a customer would come and ask for something and I would say no and when I translate it I would discover that I actually have the stuff. Lol

I was determined and the language barrier didn’t stop me because I have bills to pay and today the case is different because now I understand the language, even though I am not even fully out of Level A yet, lol. but I am better now and not like when I arrived, so don’t let any language stop your dreams.

How to detect an online shopping scam in Brazil

I talk about it, how I was scammed in Brazil and as I told you the online shops that most scammers use in Brazil are grade A, Top-Notch, you can never detect that it is a scam site trying to steal your money 


The first thing you should do is not to fall for cheap products, scammers in Brazil often use this trick to lure and scam people 


Buy from recognized online shops that are popular in brazil we have many of them 


Always ask for CNPJ as a business owner myself I sell online and my business is registered and I told you all  how to register your business in Brasil, so it is good to have a registered business and clients would trust you, so before you buy online always ask the seller for their CNPJ

Make sure the name on the Cnpj is the same as the name on the account that the seller is asking you to send money to 


We mostly use Ali express in brazil and it is very secure


Always ask for the  address of the shop, but a Cnpj would be enough because lots of online sellers don't have shops but some do, So these are how you can protect yourself against online shopping scams in Brazil

In Brazil, You Must Learn To Be Patient

As a Lagos boy we are used to getting things done very fast, everyone is in a hurry and even on the roads people are honking and cursing, and ATM spot people are quarrel, well in Brazil you must learn to calm down


In Brazil, people don't honk like crazy unless they have to, unlike Lagos where they sing songs with their horn


At ATM spots people queue and nobody shouts at anyone you must allow the person to do whatever they like and when it gets to your turn you can do whatever you like as well, so I have adapted to the Brazilian way of living, I don't rush  and I take my time

Snowfall in Brasil

Brazil is a blessed country with everything, they have oil and Brazil is a very strong agricultural country and I think Nigeria should learn from Brazil, they are the largest exporters of beef and also the largest exporters of coffee for the past 150yrs, so agriculture is a big deal in Brazil and many people don't know it actually snows in Brazil 


The weather is great to produce everything they need and there is a particular state in Brazil where it snows and you can see the video and it is not in the mountains but in the city, these and many more are the reasons why I love Brazil, enjoy the video

How Brazilians Eat Garri

I talked about so many things I love about Brazil and if you missed it you can read about it on my page, we have so many African foods in Brazil and this has to do with the slave trade, and remember many slaves were Brought down here and they came here with their cultures and traditions plus their food yes, we have plantain, cassava, cocoyam, yam, garri, palm oil


Now Brazilians don't eat garri like us, they call it farofa in Brasil and they mostly use it to thicken their food and they sprinkle it on rice, lol yes rice and they love it 


Well for me I enjoy my garri like the picture you see below the African way

In Brazil, men carry handbags for women

I know as an African you would be surprised right. Lol, so was I until I got used to seeing those everywhere, and in Brazil, chivalry is not dead, men still Open doors for women and they carry handbags for women


So it is normal in Brazil to see men holding the handbag of their   wives or girlfriend while they are walking and this can't happen in Africa because the society would say the woman has caged the man with African voodoo, lol


Even the women in Africa won't even allow a man to carry her handbag because society would say she is using voodoo on the man, so the society frowns on such, but here in Brazil it is perfectly normal

Brazil works Just Fine

You know I always see people talking bad about Brazil and I am always pissed because most of the people saying this are not even in Brazil and many of them just visited Brazil and maybe Rio, Brazil is not all about Rio and the favelas, the county is big and in fact the biggest in South America


You can't compare Brazil to any country in Africa, I would give you an example, you remember the ebeano supermarket that was burned down by a kid, how come the Nigerian fire service could not save the building? or at least even try


Now in Brazil, a friend of mine his son was playing and hit his head and this was around 1am, he should have called an ambulance but he forgot and quickly rushed to the nearest hospital at 1am and he was told they don't treat kids there and he went back home and called the ambulance and they came, gave first aid to the kid and then drove him in the ambulance to another hospital and here is the best part it was all free and remember this happened around 1am and they don't live in an area for rich people like how it is in Africa where it is the rich people that have access to this kind of treatment.


Another one happened, this time I made the video myself with my phone, it happened at the back of where I live and I don't live in a posh neighborhood, but it is a nice and lovely area, a guy had an accident and within 10min the ambulance arrived and before you know what was happening we started hearing the sound of a helicopter, lo and behold they landed at the back of my street, I was surprised and the guy that had this accident is not the son of the president or a politician, he was treated fairly and equally, the helicopter flew the guy to the hospital and I was wondering why the ambulance didn't just take him, I guess the guy was in a very bad shape and they wanted him To receive treatment fast, I attached the video below, So Brazil works just that the Brazilian bureaucracy is slow, but the country works just fine

It Is Normal To See People Drinking Beer In The Morning In Brazil

You know in many African countries this is not normal but in Brasil don't be surprised when you see people drinking beer in the morning and as I have told you before Brazil is a fun and lovely country, it is a country for fun and partying and family, this is why I love brazil


The main reason why you see people drink in the morning  is that many of them work nights, unlike in Africa where many people don't work at night, so this is one of the major reasons why you see people drinking beers at beer shops in the morning

Drivers obey zebra crossing in Brazil

As a Lagos boy, I know how crazy it is in Lagos and how the drivers are crazy and they drive anyhow, they Disobey traffic laws and they don't respect pedestrians, and the worse part is they take one way and I have gotten used to making sure the roads are clear before I cross because in Lagos you have to watch out for cars that love taking one way especially the rich ones and the people in power, nobody really respects zebra crossing in Lagos


But in Brazil they respect the pedestrians, we have bike lanes and every other thing and just stand at the zebra Crossing and cars would stop even the president of Brazil would stop and the police as well, so it is well respected here

Open Display Of Affection Is Normal In Brazil

One of the things that shocked me when I got to brazil was the open display of affection, you would see people kissing on the road, I mean French kissing and everyone minds their business, you would see people holding hands, even in buses people hold each other inside buses, in bars or clubs people kiss 


Hey, don't blame me I am African we love to pretend, lol and this is why I am surprised but I have adjusted already. Lol


In Brazil they always say if you don't hold a woman's hand it means you don't really love her, so Brazilians love to show off  their partners, everywhere you go in Brazil you must see people holding hands both old and young, so Brazilians believe in open display of affection unlike what we have in Africa, So don't be shocked when you arrive in  brazil

What You Call Half-Naked Dressing In Africa Is Normal In Brazil 18+

The first thing that hit me when I arrived in brazil was women in bum shorts, I was surprised and shocked and don't blame me I am from Africa a place where they mock and even kill women for wearing such, and even in some countries they blame the way women dress for the high rate of rape, but this is not true, men should be able to control what is in between their legs.


Brazilian women are sexy and they still dress in a very sexy way, if you ask me, I don't see anything wrong with the way their women dress it is called freedom


Prostitution is legal in Brazil and looking at women is also free unlike some country where you can get Harassed for looking at women As we say in my country if konji hold you which simply means if you are horny please patronize a program girl, it is legal in Brazil and no policeman would arrest you


So when you come To Brazil you have to adjust to the Brazilian way of life, women are free in brazil and this is why I love brazil.

I Visited The Iconic Cathedral Of Brasilia, Brasil

This church is an iconic landmark in the whole of Brasilia and Brazil and you know Brazil is a Christian country so you understand now why this is a very important cathedral in Brazil and here is more about the building.


The Cathedral of Brasília (Portuguese: Catedral Metropolitana de Brasília, "Metropolitan Cathedral of Brasília") is the Roman Catholic cathedral serving Brasília, Brazil, and serves as the seat of the Archdiocese of Brasília. It was designed by Brazilian architect Oscar Niemeyer and projected by Brazilian structural engineer Joaquim Cardozo, and was completed and dedicated on May 31, 1970. The cathedral is a hyperboloid structure constructed from 16 concrete columns, weighing 90 tons each.

What I learnt After visiting the Brazilian presidential Palace

If you read my previous write-up, I talked about visiting the Brazilian presidential Palace and it was an awesome experience for me and one thing I noticed is the freedom. We have a bus stop near the presidential Palace as you can see in the picture below, I don't think this can happen in my country, the presidential Palace in my country is a no-go zone.


Photos:https://www.facebook.com/112258144381748/posts/153788043562091/



What are African leaders always scared of?


In Brazil, people go to the presidential Palace to take pictures and you won't find one military checkpoint or fierce-looking soldiers, why is Africa always different?


When I was making the video the military guy walked up to me  and politely and calmly told me to go to the part where i can take pictures from because I was making the video close to  the road, if it was in Africa a fierce-looking military man might even beat you


This are part of the reasons why I love Brazil because of the freedom we enjoy here

My visit to the Brazilian presidential Palace

It was an awesome experience for me to visit the Brazilian seat of power and here is more about the Brazilian presidential Palace


The Palácio do Planalto in Brasília is the official workplace of the president of Brazil. The building was designed by architect Oscar Niemeyer in 1958 and inaugurated on April 21, 1960. It has been the workplace of every Brazilian president since Juscelino Kubitschek. It is located at the Praça dos Três Poderes (Three Powers Plaza), to the east of the National Congress of Brazil and across from the Supreme Federal Court.

It is one of the official palaces of the Presidency, along with the Palácio da Alvorada, the official residence. Besides the President, other high ranking government officials also work from the Planalto, including the Vice President and the Chief of Staff; the other government ministry buildings are located on the Ministries Esplanade. As the seat of government, the term Planalto is often used as a metonym for the executive branch of the federal government. 

The building, constructed in the modernist style, is part of the Brasília World Heritage Site, designated by UNESCO in 1987

The National Congress of Brazil is Located In Brasilia

This iconic landmark building located in Brasilia is the senate building of Brazil and here is more about the building


Photos:https://www.facebook.com/112258144381748/posts/153794280228134/





Congresso Nacional do Brasil is the legislative body of Brazil's federal government. Unlike the state legislative assemblies and municipal chambers, the Congress is bicameral, composed of the Federal Senate (the upper house) and the Chamber of Deputies (the lower house). The Congress meets annually in Brasília from 2 February to 22 December, with a mid-term break taking place between 17 July and 1 August.




The Senate represents the 26 states and the Federal District. Each state and the Federal District has a representation of three Senators, who are elected by popular ballot for a term of eight years. Every four years, renewal of either one third or two-thirds of the Senate (and of the delegations of the States and the Federal District) takes place. The Chamber of Deputies represents the people of each state, and its members are elected for a four-year term by a system of proportional representation. Seats are allotted proportionally according to each state's population, with each state eligible for a minimum of 8 seats (least populous) and a maximum of 70 seats (most populous). Unlike the Senate, the whole of the Chamber of Deputies is renewed every four years.


Until recently it was common for politicians to switch parties and the proportion of congressional seats held by each party would often change. However, a decision of the Supreme Federal Court has ruled that the seats belong to the parties and not to the politicians; one can only change parties and retain his seat in a very limited set of cases. Consequently, politicians who abandon the party for which they were elected now face the loss of their congressional seat.[citation needed] Each house of the Brazilian Congress elects its president and the other members of its directing board from among its members.[citation needed] The President of the Senate is ex officio the President of the National Congress, and in that capacity summons and presides over joint sessions, as well as over the joint services of both houses. The President of the Chamber is second in the presidential line of succession while the President of the Senate (and of Congress) is third.

Walking Around DF,Brasilia,Brazil


Photos:https://www.facebook.com/112258144381748/posts/153820340225528/

Brasilia is the federal capital of Brazil and seat of government of the Federal District. The city is located at the top of the Brazilian highlands in the country's center-western region. It was founded by President Juscelino Kubitschek on April 21, 1960, to serve as the new national capital. Brasilia is estimated to be Brazil's third-most populous city. Among major Latin American cities, it has the highest GDP per capita.

Brasilia was a planned city developed by Lúcio Costa, Oscar Niemeyer and Joaquim Cardozo in 1956 in a scheme to move the capital from Rio de Janeiro to a more central location. The landscape architect was Roberto Burle Marx. The city's design divides it into numbered blocks as well as sectors for specified activities, such as the Hotel Sector, the Banking Sector, and the Embassy Sector. Brasilia was inscribed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1987 due to its modernist architecture and uniquely artistic urban planning. It was named "City of Design" by UNESCO in October 2017 and has been part of the Creative Cities Network since then.

All three branches of Brazil's federal government are centered in the city: executive, legislative and judiciary. Brasilia also hosts 124 foreign embassies.The city's international airport connects it to all other major Brazilian cities and some international destinations, and it is the third-busiest airport in Brazil. It was one of the main host cities of the 2014 FIFA World Cup and hosted some of the football matches during the 2016 Summer Olympics; it also hosted the 2013 FIFA Confederations Cup.

The city has a unique status in Brazil, as it is an administrative division rather than a legal municipality like other cities in Brazil. Although Brasilia is used as a synonym for the Federal District through synecdoche, the Federal District is composed of 31 administrative regions, only one of which is the area of the originally planned city, also called Plano Piloto. The rest of the Federal District is considered by IBGE to make up Brasilia's metro area.

I Visited The Juscelino Kubitschek Bridge, Ponte JK ,Brasilia,Brazil


Juscelino Kubitschek Bridge (Portuguese: Ponte Juscelino Kubitschek), commonly called Ponte JK (English: JK Bridge)[citation needed], is a steel and concrete arch bridge across Lake Paranoá in Brasília, Brazil. It connects the eastern shore of the lake – where Lago Sul, Paranoá and Brasília International Airport are located – to Brasília's city center, via the Monumental Axis. Opened to traffic on December 15, 2002, its distinctive silhouette quickly became a Brasília landmark.


Photos:https://www.facebook.com/112258144381748/posts/153882160219346/



The bridge is named after President Juscelino Kubitschek, who served from 1956 to 1961, and is generally considered the main figure supporting the construction of the planned city of Brasília. It was designed by architect Alexandre Chan and structural engineer Mário Vila Verde.


Alexandre Chan received the Gustav Lindenthal Medal for the bridge's project at the 2003 International Bridge Conference in Pittsburgh. This medal is awarded "for a single, recent outstanding achievement showing harmony with the environment, aesthetic merit and successful community participation".


The bridge was also awarded the 2003 Premio Abcem (ABCEM Award) for "Best Steel Work of the Year, Bridges and Highway Overpasses Category", granted by the Brazilian Metal Construction Association (Associação Brasileira da Construção Metálica, ABCEM).

I Bumped Into A FORA Bolsonaro Protest

 I Bumped Into A FORA Bolsonaro Protest


FORA Bolsonaro means leave Bolsonaro, it was peaceful and no policeman killed anyone or teargassed anyone, we have a lot to learn in Africa.


I am not into Brazilian politics and I am not on the right or left, I am just a humanist, I believe humanity should always come first and everything shouldn't be about politics.


In Brazil you can clearly see the freedom of protest, you see the fora bolsanaro shirts and LGBT shirts on display, and oh in Brazil LGBT is legal in Brazil and I wrote about it as well


Despite protesting 2mins away from The Presidential Palace, I didn't see any military or army tanks or police in tear gasping people, it was totally peaceful even though they were mocking their president, can this happen in Africa I ask? Long live the Federal Republic of brazil
