He is from Nigeria. He came to China with all his savings 16 years ago, and now he has settled in Guangzhou with Chinese wife and a lovely son.

He established the "Nigeria Community" in Guangzhou in 2008 to promote better cooperation between Africans and Chinese. As chairman of the community, he is very busy with building a "bridge" between both sides.

A survey by Guangzhou Academy of Social Sciences shows that there are more than 20,000 Africans permanent residents in Guangzhou. Their dreams are simple and real: working and earning money, getting married and having a family here; the city has become more colorful because of them.
