Relocation has always been a resounding theme for a lot of Nigerians as many tend to believe that the grass is greener on the other side.

There is almost no country in the world that one wouldn’t find a Nigerian or group of Nigerians who have left their homeland in a bid to better their lives.

Interestingly, even celebrities who are in the public eye and are often assumed to lead a better and more comfortable life here in Nigeria never leave anything to chance when they get the option to pack up and leave.

Perhaps, this explains why a lot of them are occasionally breezing in and out of foreign countries before making the decision to stay back in the country that suits them the most. It is usually anywhere but Nigeria.

Consequently, the Nigerian movie industry does come to mind when it is down to citizens who have pitched their tents in foreign lands.

A handful of popular faces in the movie industry can no longer thrill their fans back at home because their careers have taken a different cause abroad.

Here is a compilation a list of some popular Nollywood actresses who have relocated abroad:

Regina Askia

The news of the actress’ relocation came as a surprise to many as she was very active in the Yoruba movie industry. However, the movie star who is also the mother of singer, Mayorkun, had to make the move after her husband relocated to the US.
