Why Nigerians defeat us in everything – South African businessman
A South African businessman has praised the resilient spirit of Nigerians in business and survival.
In a conversation with a podcaster named Pen, the entrepreneur noted that Nigerians often outperform South Africans in business competitions due to their hardworking nature and self-motivation.
The businessman shared his observation of how many Nigerians, despite not having the assurance of government grants, take it upon themselves to hustle and make a living.
He cited examples of small business owners and hawkers who are not deterred by their situation and are always looking for ways to make a living.
In contrast, the businessman pointed out that many young South Africans wait for government support or go through bureaucratic processes to get loans from Small Enterprise Finance Agency before starting a business.
The South African businessman called for a change in mindset amongst his people, urging them to adopt a proactive approach to business and survival and to learn from the resilient spirit of Nigerians.
The video of the conversation has since gone viral, with many Nigerians expressing pride in their hardworking spirit and determination to succeed, despite challenges.
