So NRC is not enough? So what age group are they focused on? Are they counting on the kind of crowd NRC gets or they counting on working professionals? FYI, most NRC attendants are still in school 9ja folks with little money to burn. To Linda, if they are not paying your future over $1000.00 flight ticket to St Thomas, plz no make noise. We Naijas in America are invited too.
And finally, I tell these promoters, go promote the paradise your own country Naija.

I wish I can be there, I really do. I have always dreamed of visiting the US virgin Islands.

Bee said...

wondering why U.S Virgin Islands and not Barbados....At least Barbados does not require Visa if you have a naija passport. More incentive for pple to land from all over.

Blackknight said...

Virgin Island,Aruba,Barbados,Bahamas - Linda, if you have the opportunity,please visit.You will never remain the same again.Go there and see another side of Good life..No be naija materialistic and fake lifestyle.Go and be in love with nature,excellent cuisine and beautiful people.Chai...I love dem those places....
Believe me, when you go there, you will feel alive again.

Let this trip be among your bucket lists - things you'd like to do before you die....You will never regret it.

Good luck, be at peace with nature, enjoy the fun all the way and may the joy be with you.

The idiot did not even read the press release otherwise he would have realized that the event was organized by Nigerian residents based in St. Thomas inviting all Nigerias worldwide to come for a reunion.
