Brainard shared his story during a podcast interview with media personality, Teju Oyelakin, professionally known as Teju Babyface.

He admitted that moving abroad was not easy, but he decided to leave Nigeria many years ago to meet his wife in another country.

The Nollywood star noted that anytime he is driving, his Nigerian passengers always stare at him in disbelief and wonder if he is the same person they used to watch in films.

According to Brainard, the curious ones would approach him to be sure. He added that it is better to be celebrated and be a prince in Nigeria than to move abroad and be a nobody.

He reiterated that life abroad is not easy at all and working low income jobs to make a living is not something his wife loves at all.

Nigerian actor, Joseph Benjamin revealed that he turned to a cab driver after relocating to the United States of America.

He recalled being stranded when he left Nigeria for U.S. in the hopes of breaking into Hollywood after someone promised him movie gigs.

Benjamin said; I got to America on a promise that I had some gigs waiting for me. So I thought I was going to have a soft landing there. I packed up everything from Nigeria, bought a one-way ticket, and came to America.

I was put in a well-furnished house and all of that. Then two days later, the person who I was supposed to book a deal with said to me, ‘Those our financiers have pulled out. They have an issue.’ So, I said, what do I do? He was like, ‘From next month on, you will have to start paying rent in this house.’ The amount of the one-month rent was equivalent to a one-year rent in Nigeria.
