Nigerians are UK's 4th biggest foreign spenders

Article written by Susannah Butter for Standard UK

Every year, Simi Osomo (pictured above) makes six trips to London from Nigeria. The 25-year-old spends about two weeks here and every day she goes shopping. Today she’s at the boutique shop Matches Townhouse in Marylebone with a personal shopper. “When it comes to shopping and Nigerians, I can tell you it’s just what we have to do,” she tells me while admiring the patterned dresses.
For Nigerians, London is a shopping mecca. Visitors from the West African country are the UK’s fourth biggest foreign spenders, parting with an average of £500 in each luxury shop they visit — four times what UK shoppers typically spend. When I ask Osomo how much a two-week shopping trip in London costs she makes a bashful face. “Ooh, should I really be saying this? It depends, but most times about £5,000.”
Osomo is wearing a green top from Zara that’s “the colour of the Nigerian flag”, blue skinny jeans and new Christian Louboutin shoes. Later today she’s going to buy an iPhone 5 for her sister.

“You can get lots of things in Lagos but they are cheaper here and you get to take a holiday and relax a bit. It’s only six hours away.” The number of Nigerian visitors to the UK increased by more than 50 per cent to 142,000 a year between 1991 and 2011, according to the Office for National Statistics. Nigeria is projected to become Africa’s biggest economy by next year and the world’s fifth most populous country by 2050, and London is cashing in.

Debenhams’ Oxford Street branch has put up signs in Hausa, one of the official Nigerian languages, and said customers from this part of West Africa are its biggest overseas spenders. Yet Osomo says it’s not just rich Nigerians who come over. “Middle-class people can afford to come and spend £600 on shopping in a week here. What I like about the UK is that it doesn’t discriminate. As long as you’re able to prove you have an income, accommodation in London and a return ticket, the authorities are more than willing to give you a visa. It’s closer than America and the customer service here is phenomenal.”

Back home in Lagos, the technology market has been flooded with fake products from China, which means more people are coming to London for electronic goods and are even taking items back to sell. “No one wants to spend more than 100,000 naira (£390) and find out it is fake, so they prefer to come over for a holiday and buy something they know is real and has a guarantee in case something goes wrong.”

Marks & Spencer is one of Osomo’s favourite shops. “I love their fajitas. You can’t get them in Nigeria. I also buy soy sauce and Thai green curry paste, which is good because it lasts for a long time. Oh, and Crunchy Nut cereal, Skittles, Maltesers and tea. There’s nothing like a British cuppa. I get Lipton, PG and green tea.” She likes the variety of London. “I love Zara, H&M, Topshop. But if I want something more high end, there’s Sloane Street.”

More than £3 billion a year is spent on high-end goods in London, according to the London Luxury Quarter Report, and it predicts this will rise to £4.5 billion by 2020, with new shops including Burberry’s flagship fuelling the trend. Luxury concierge services are also popular. Osomo is a client of Quintessentially, which organises shopping trips and parties for her and has an office in Lagos.

Although summer is the height of the shopping season, Osomo likes to come back for the January sales too. Her mother, a lawyer, and father, a businessman, often join her. She has just finished a law degree and is about to start a job in fashion journalism, which she hopes will give her enough holidays for trips to London. But flights can get booked up quickly.

“You don’t want to get the Lagos to London flight in July. It’s packed with parents and their kids making noise.” Return flights at high season start at about £369.

But what about getting her haul of shopping back from London to Lagos? That, says Osomo, is costly. “All I pack when I come over is one pair of jeans and three tops. I bring two big suitcases but I always have to get another one and pay for excess baggage. I never learn.” British Airways has increased its excess baggage charge on flights from London to Lagos from £40 to £97 per suitcase in the past year. “They must have realised we always put an extra bag in and thought they’d try to make money out of it,” says Osomo.

Fashion-wise, she still picks up the odd item in Nigeria. Six months ago Zara opened an outlet store in Lagos, and Mango has been there for about a year. “Zara is affordable because it’s an outlet but what I find is that things are a bit last season. Nigeria’s hot all the time so there are always maxi dresses and swimwear but the colours are boring and we lack variety. Customer service is not great and some shops can get really crowded, which is challenging.” There is a burgeoning online shopping industry in Nigeria too. Currently, ASOS is the only shop that ships to Lagos free of charge and everyone Osomo’s age uses it.

“Nigeria is a fun place, I’d encourage people to go. Shopping is evolving. In five years I think a lot of stores will come to Nigeria because there is a gap in the market. Ten years ago I never thought Zara would come to Nigeria. I believe in the next five years we will catch up. But I still love London and won’t stop coming here.”

MAXIMUS™ said...

Yeah we spend quite all right, but £5,000 in 2weeks six times a year??? kiss my caucasian tits! I spend a lotta money on shopping, but I'll never be that extravagant. If she had said £2,500 - £3,000 I would say yeah, very realistic sum.

I loathe people who just tell blatant lies. I would really really like to know what that Simi girl does for a living.

And all u foreign-based people saying 70% of nigerians live on less than $2 a day, that's about N320 which can buy what $2 cannot buy abroad so plsss stop comparing it to living abroad.

Mr chop gala, the difference between you and I is even though I have that money, I don't need all these items to validate myself. You must really be so insecure with extremely low self esteem to even list all your possessions like that's going to change the price of pure water you just finished drinking. Get a life.

And in Jesus name, I am not and will never be a sufferhead. The real, truly wealthy people, who have worked hard for their money, don't go round bragging about it, and announcing to the world how much they spend or what they have. What they have speak for them. It's those empty, just see money people, that do that.

NUBIAN QUEEN™ said...

That is true the Nigerians are first while the Middle Easterners come a close second i worked retail when younger and summer were the craziest busiest shopping months these women either had Gold/platinum credit/debit cards or £50 notes and they shop in bulk!!!

Anonymous said...

I'm sorry but even the clothes that she is wearing in the pic is not all that. Nonsense! And she is sending a stupid message to the younger girls out there. Also, she should have made it very clear what she does for a living in order to fund a useless shopping addiction unless she is feeding off her "wealthy" or working parents. I don't like this girl's style because it seems as though something or the truth is missing. It is only SOME Nigerians like her who boast like that. I hope she buys clothes for those who are naked and dying on the streets of Lagos- silly girl. Anyway I put it down to her age. Gosh!

Austin Uche said...

ok, i totally agree dat spending 30k pounds a year is seriously extravagant. There are better and noble things one can do wif such cash in a year(buh who is sure dah the simi chic aint giving to charity already)... Buh wah i find quite annoying is dah the commenters dah are preaching Jesus are jes being harsh abt d whole preaching thing, u dnt insult sumbody and still tell the person to give his/her life to Christ...

On the other hand. This article is just depressing. Bad roads, no electricity, infrastructure fucked up. At least we know where the money is going to. How will they not give Nigerians visas? They are helping the UK get through the recession while the home country wallows in poverty.

Dear Linda, Please this article was actually written by a Nigerian writer called Monica Mark. She writes for Guardian UK as a Nigerian-based journalist covering West-Africa for (UK) Guardian according to her twitter profile. I read this article ages ago and she posted it since the 10th of Septermber. This Standard UK writer just played smart and twisted some parts of the article and reproduced it. You can confirm for yourself by visiting http://www.guardian.co.uk/world/2012/sep/10/nigeria-shoppers-rival-russia-middle-east I just feel it's good we support our own that are trying to make it down there. Anyone can make this mistake. I'm not saying you did this on purpose. Best wishes.

I have said this over and over again.I simply see nothing wrong with spending your earned money on yourself. Yes, there are poor people out there but that doesn't mean you shouldn't spoil yourself with your money. No matter how much you give most of them will still be in that position, so give as much as you can give and enjoy the rest. Life is too short to realize such late so let those who are privileged reap their harvest and don't hate on them. Life is that simple.

i believe the girl might be making regular shopping trips to the uk but its a blatant and obvious lie saying she spends 5k in two weeks..

for one the shops she mentions as her favourite are cheap,ready to wear average shops.
i can't afford to spend 5k in two weeks yet i wouldn't be caught dead wearing h and m ,zara clothes the only stuffs i buy there are plain tees and boxes,socks if you spend only 2000 pounds in those shops you will need a container to pack the clothes.
iphone5 is less than 600pounds buy a vertu phone with the cheapest at 10k pounds and we r talking

we know the nigerians who drop that kind of money shopping without making noise like halima babangida,the indimis,former avm adekeye's children,former i g balogun's kids e.t.c

all in all i don't blame her for hyping herself and embellishing after all who wouldn't relish such opportunity i will do same if i was in her position..

i know the most prominent osomos,so if her dad is wale osomo who is the first son or her bro whichever way i trust mrs osomo won't give her such amount of money to shop and wale osomo certainly won't as well

What's with the Jesus Christ? Ur so jealous. She's a rich girl, therefore u must remind her that she should give her life to Christ? Jealousy won't kill u. What would u say to rich Christians who spend wayyyy more? Cos her £5000 is chicken change to some people.

You are visitors so you have to spend more when here. We live here and spend on our mortgages, bills, fantastic quality of life, holidays to the Caribbean etc. It all evens itself out.

Erm!!! How SAD and FOOLISH!!

Giving nigerians a very bad name. Yes!! A few Nigerians are extremely rich. So bloody what?

I do not understand why stupid Nigerian boys and girls whose parents steal from the poor dash the developed countries all our countries funds, have the audacity to flaunt their stupidity in public? You should be ashamed of your plain foolishness.

You would never see a Trump or a Kennedy, do such a stupid thing and be proud. We have succeeded in creating a culture which says 'Stealing with no Corporate Responsibility is allowed'.

The Ecclestones, Pearsons, Spellings Laurens and other top shot Western families who flaunt wealth at least give MILLIONS back to the community.

And you monkey climbing African wants to compete with them. THIS IS LAUGHABLE.

wHEN YOUR GRANDPARENTS WHERE CLIMBING TREES, the Americans and the like where building railroads for their countries.

Foolish Nigerians spend it on Crunchy nut and kit kat.

Next thing they would complain that all men cheat!!!

Only a daft man would marry you. For connections obviously. Because i see no reason why a man in his right mind would marry a fool who would waste all his hard earned and stolen money on BULLSHIT!!!

Nigerians and Africans in general need to open their eyes and stop envying foolish things. Stop looking up to madness, because as far as the west is concerned this is entire madness.

Make money to leave a legacy, not to buy Chanel and Zanotti shoes up and down like a foolish wannabe!!!

Nigeria is in a mess, the poor are getting poorer whilst the rich are getting richer.

Was I the only one who watched welcome to Lagos??

The state of their leaving standards are tears worthy.

All our systems are in shambles and we have the audacity to appear in the papers claiming to be successful *SPIT*!!

YES!! I spit in the face of MADNESS. BECAUSE i AM ANGRY.....

The new craze "i hear" is all the girls follow rich men and all the men steal to maintain power and influence. Then sleep with all the girls like Animals..... WHAT HAVE WE REDUCED OURSELVES TOO EHEN???

Is this the future we want to leave for our children???

It sickening........ WE REALLY NEED TO STOP AND THINK!!! BECAUSE THIS IS JUST NOT OKAY!!

I know people who spend more, what's the point,promoting/revealing simi or talking about how much people spend on shopping on average or what?

@maximus 12:59 I doubt that the girl is lying, I sometimes spend more than that per shopping trip and I travel up to 8 times a year! We nigerians just love to shop but I must say that we are conservative compared to Arabs and Asians.

Yes, i agree with this.
I went shopping and the man was happy when he heard i was a Nigerian! He said, Nigerians spend a lot in his shop. I laughed and said he was probably referring to the politicians because i don't have that kind of money to spend. http://americajourney.blogspot.com/2012/09/the-general-culture-in-america.html

Lol make persin hear word jare. LOL@Simi's voltron anon friend. Empty vessels make the greatest noise. Even if, there are ppl who spend even more on more quality stuff, but they dont go broadcasting their mouth everywhere. So because she's a working girl, and her parents give her money, we should jump? Sorry but if this is the best we can read on her online, then her parents should have every cause to worry.

30,000 pounds sterling a year on shopping...this has to be one of the biggest ewus I have read about online. Fashionista.com lo mo!! Its this thinking that has destroyed Nigeria.

Simi forgot to add that its because its easier for her to get UK visa, cause ppl like her get bounced daily at the US embassy.

But tell me where this "Zara Outlet store" has advertised.

People who come from money, live money, breathe money; will think twice before claiming they spend £30,000 a year on shopping. How would I know, I bet you have the common sense to deduce that I just described myself.

Next time you see a comment from me, ignore it and keep moving! 'Cos the only thing that will ever EVER bring you this much close to me in real life, still remains Linda Ikeji's blog. Other than that, take a back seat. You're not my type.

The sad truth is that Nigerian's spend in excess of 30k a year and it is not news nor does it deserve to be news. By the time you fly business or first class, stay in a serviced flat in central london, buy a birkin here, chanel there, you've run through a lot of currency. I know people who do this regularly.

However I think this article was very unnecessary. If anything, it shows what a foolish country Nigeria is. We are here propping the economies of these western countries but our country needs loans and foreign aid. Even at that, 90% of the population is still below the poverty line.

How about some private sector investment with all this spare cash? I can't talk too much though, I live in the UK and I know how much I spend shopping. But when you hear someone else say it, it does sound ridiculous.
