A Nigerian man has shared how most of his networks are products of social media interaction.
The young man, Chukwuma Ezeh, gave this narration on LinkedIn as he received an American lady he had met on Facebook into the country.
How he knew the American lady
Chukwuma said his friendship with the lady started in 2018 when he made an inspiring post about his businesses on a Facebook group that had people from diverse nationalities.
His post got the attention of many people including the American lady named Jessica Morgan.
Chukwuma stated that the lady had messaged him privately.
Three years late, Jessica chose Nigeria as her vacation destination and was received by Chukwuma alongside other friends she had made in the country.
Jessica even named her child Chidinma.

"Wow! What an inspiring story bro. It very important to network, like my first time I ever traveled out of Nigeria was in 2018, and then I met a friend from Liberia, her name is Jemiamah.
"She told me something I would never forget in my life, she said sho sho, slow but sure networker. In this 21st century we’re all in, we all need to network intentional and strategically, the power of networking cannot be overemphasized."

"And I was here thinking it's your family and admiring you all.
"It's obvious you are a good person at heart.
"Welcome to Nigeria Jessica! Hope you have a great stay here! Nigerians are wonderful people."
Maureen Ogbonna commented:
"Wow. That is quite a story.
"Welcome Jessica and Chidinma.
"@Chukwuma, please give them the time of their lives while they're here.
"I trust you to show Jessica and her baby how awesome a people us Nigerians are."
Ikenna Ogwogwo stated:
"This is beautiful. I'm happy to know we can connect and have great relationship via social media. Interestingly, I met my loving wife on one of the platforms. It's been great and awesome."
Gift Odoh shared on his LinkedIn wall that his British friends got to understand that the media portrayal of Nigerians was actually different from reality.
He said to their amazement, they learnt first-hand that Nigerians are strong, resilient, intelligent and fun to be with.
His post read in part:
"Very often, my friends ask about Nigeria and our rich culture. So one evening, I casually said to my friends, I have some cultural attires from Nigeria, and they immediately wanted to try them. Funny story, I almost forgot, and they reminded me about the dresses as they were looking forward to it. I think they rocked it pretty well!"
