It’s no foreign news that we are in the 21st century where the youth get to decide their future ambitions or career path themselves. But funny enough, there are few career opportunities that some Nigerian parents would never allow their children to sign up for even if it is one of the most lucrative professions.
Many either believe that those jobs are worthless, or are meant for those with no vision or purpose in life. Some even believe in surrealism and superstitions or have their persuasive reasons thereof.
Read below to find out what career choices they disagree with.

If your parents are from Southern West's pay of Nigeria, be ready to choose another career path. Due to how high they believe in some legacies perhaps superstitions passed on to them by their parents, they would never allow. Some would tell you “God forbid! What if the plane crashes or ship capsized?
A typical Nigerian parent would say” you can’t become a soldier ooo, what if they put you at the war front and something bad happens?… We can’t risk that dear child, choose another one “.
Imagine a youth telling his father who is a fervent Christain as well as a pastor that he wants to be a dancer or model in the future?. Lol, he would be considered unserious and irresponsible. The reason is not farfetched as many Nigerians consider dancing to be for prostitutes or promiscuous being. Therefore, it shouldn’t be chosen. Yet we have Successful dancers like Kaffy, Pocolee, Broda Shaggi and singers like Simi, AG baby, Lawrence, etc.
Seriously! disc jockey? When there are other high profile professions like doctors, lawyers..” says a Nigerian parent. What they fail to know is that there are quite a number of successful DJs in Nigerian including Dj cuppy, Dj ultimate, Dj Neptune, etc.
Son: mom, I want to be a footballer
Mom: think of something else. Because when they break your leg for you, I’ll be the one arranging. So think again.
