The Zikoko Hack to Japa Without Money

October 18, 2022

This one that everyone is leaving the country, where are they seeing the money? And they’ll be saying there’s no money.

Anyways, for you that actually doesn’t have money, follow these steps and you’ll find yourself in your country of choice — without breaking the bank. 

Put your phone on airplane mode and put it under your pillow

This only works for brand new iPhone 13s, — not UK used. So basically, only three people in Nigeria can do it. That’s why it’s not such a popular japa method. Those who know, know. 

Marry into an Edo family

Word on the street is that these people can fly. My question is, why are they all still in Nigeria? Could never be me. 

Become a pilot

Pick JAMB form, go to school, become a pilot. When you get a job, carry the plane and run away. Works every time. 

Manage Benin Republic

Abroad is abroad. As long as your problem is with Nigeria, there’s no reason you should think you’re too big for Benin Republic. One bus will get you there. 

There’s a bus to London by 2:38 a.m. every second Thursday at Oshodi

It’s just ₦5k. You don’t need a visa or even a passport. That’s how I moved to the UK where I’m writing this from. 

Read Zikoko’s Abroad Life

The more you read our Abroad Life series about Nigerians who have moved abroad, the more you’ll get tips on how to japa. Again, I’m in the UK because I read this series. Haters will say I’m capping.

Just start swimming

One day, may wash up on the shores of Spain. Probably not alive, but at least you tried.

Believe in yourself

There’s nothing you can’t achieve by believing in yourself. Just close your eyes and believe, next thing you know, you’re chilling on a beach in Puerto Rico. 

Enter someone’s box

There are too many jokes about entering someone’s box to japa that I’m sure it has happened at least once. At least.
