miss joy brown, 27-Mar-2014 22:36
My name is miss joy brown, am from maim USA. i want to use this opportunity to thank my great doctor who really made my life a pleasurable one today. This great man Dr okunade who brought my husband back to me, i had 2 lovely kids for my husband, about 3 years ago i and my husband has been into one quarrel or the other until he finally left me for one lady. i felt my life was over and my kids thought they would never see their father again. i tried to be strong just for the kids but i could not control the pains that torments my heart, my heart was filled with sorrows anAd pains because i was really in love with my husband. Every day and night i think of him and always wish he would come back to me, until one day i met a good friend of mine that was also in a situation like me but her problem was her ex-boyfriend who she had an unwanted pregnancy for and he refused to take responsibility and dumped her. she told me that mine was a small case and that i shouldn't worry about it at all so i asked her what was the solution to my problems and she gave me this great man phone number and his email address. i was doubting if this man was the solution, so contacted this great man and he told me what to do and i deed them all, he told me to wait for just two day and that my husband will come crawling on his kneels just for forgiveness so i faithfully deed what this great man asked me to do and for sure after two days i heard a knock on the door, in a great surprise i saw him on his kneels and i was speechless, when he saw me, all he did was crying and asking me for forgiveness, from that day, all the pains and sorrows in my heart flew away,since then i and my husband and our lovely kids are happy.that's why i want to say a big thank you to Dr okunade. This great man made me to understand that theirs no problem on earth that has no solution so please if you know that you have this same problem or any problem that is similar, i will advise you to come straight to this great man. you can email him at:(
Mrs Rebecca 14-Mar-2014 15:50
My name is Mrs Rebecca from United state, I have to give this miraculous testimony, which is still unbelievable to me until now. I had a problem with my husband 5years ago, which lead to our break up. when he broke up with me, I was not my self again, i felt so empty inside me, my love and financial situation became worst, until a close friend of mine Joan told me about a spell caster who helped her in the same problem, his name is Dr.IYAMU. I email Dr. IYAMU the spell caster and i told him my problem and, i did what he asked of me, to cut the long story short. Before i knew what was happening my husband called me and told me that he was coming back to me in just 2days and i was so happy to have him back to me. We have two kids together and we are happy. Thanks to Dr. IYAMU for saving my relationship and for also saving others own too. continue your good work sir, If you are interested to contact him and testify this blessings like me, the great spell caster email address is ( or call his mobile number +2349033302882 you are the best among all the spell caster online I hope you see my testimonies and also pray for my family too.

Nadat hij in relatie met Paul zeven jaar , brak hij met mij, ik deed al het mogelijke om hem terug te brengen , maar alles was tevergeefs , ik hem terug wilde zozeer vanwege de liefde die ik voor hem , smeekte ik hem met alles , maakte ik beloften , maar hij weigerde . Ik legde mijn probleem aan iemand online en ze stelde voor dat ik moet contact opnemen met een van spreuken die me kon helpen een spreuk om hem terug te brengen , maar ik ben het type die niet geloofde in spell , had ik geen andere keus dan om het te proberen , ik bedoelde een spell caster genaamd Dr IREDIA en ik hem gemaild , en hij vertelde me dat er geen probleem was dat alles in orde zal zijn voor drie dagen , dat mijn ex zal terugkeren naar mij voor drie dagen , wierp hij de spreuk en verrassend in de tweede dag , het was rond 16:00 . Mijn ex belde me , ik was zo verbaasd , ik beantwoord de oproep en alles wat hij zei was dat hij zo'n medelijden met alles wat er gebeurd dat hij wil dat ik terug naar hem , dat hij zoveel van mij houdt . Ik was zo blij en ik ging naar hem toe , dat was hoe we begonnen graag weer samenwonen . Sindsdien heb ik de belofte dat iedereen weet ik dat een relatie probleem hebt , zou ik helpen om die persoon te zijn door te verwijzen hem of haar naar de enige echte en krachtige spreuken die me geholpen met mijn eigen probleem en die gemaakt is anders alle valse degenen die er zijn . Iedereen kon de hulp van de spreuken , zijn e-mail nodig: u kunt hem mailen als je zijn hulp in je relatie of iets nodig hebt. Ik kan nooit stoppen met praten over YOU SIR .

We are planing to travel to Nigeria more now (once a year) and I would like to "explore" the area around Benin-city. Could you give me some tipps where I can go for birdwatching and is it allowed for Europeans to hunt in Nigeria? Would be very nice to get in touch with you. Are you living in Nigeria? Are you from Europe? Thank you for your reply in advance. My e-mail address is I'm from Austria. have a great day, best regards, Martina

Can you help? I have a friend who has been living and working in Lagos for the last 6 months. She is a very happy recovering alcoholic but she is missing her alcoholics anonymous meetings in London! She would love to be in touch with other recovering alcoholics in Lagos. Do they have AA meetings in Lagos?

Hello! I came upon your pictures while feeling nostalgic about my childhood in Nigeria. I lived in Kano from 1974 and later on went to school in Jos. Left in 1983. It was - is a very memorable, wonderful place to grow up in. Thank you so much for making your gallery available for the public. The colors! The trees! The fact that if your car brakes down on the road people just appear out of no where and help you right away!
Emeka Madu. 14-Feb-2008 14:52
Hi Emiel, your pictures and comments from visitors show that Nigeria is really a great place. Its pretty good that people such as you who're not from Nigeria, but who visit, tour, live and travel around Nigeria can show the good, the beautiful and the peaceful side of this country. I live in Abuja, have hundreds of beautiful pictures of this beautiful city, Abuja and other places around Nigeria, promise to post some of it for other people to share. Great job from you, keep it up. Someone asked where else can he/she visit when he comes to Nigeria? Gurara falls is amazing, Zuma Rock is good to look at.

If you have some money to spend as a tourist, explore Abuja and enjoy your stay in the numerous hotels , visit Yankari Games Reserve, and Obudu Ranch. These will make your vacation simply great. Call 234-8033383270, will be glad to give free practical travel advice.

This pictures brought back memories. Thank You

Beste Emiel,

Geweldige foto's, als kind van '86 to '91 in Warri gewoond en dingen als het kamp, abraka, en umutu etc. zijn in sommige opzichten niet zoveel veranderd. Het is mooi om te zien dat er ook nog veel moois is in Nigeria, ondanks de vaak negative berichtgeving.

Dear Emiel,

These are wonderful photographs. I went to school at Federal Government College 'Ogunu' Warri, near Shell Camp where you live(d). You also brought back good memories from a school excursion to Jos. We visited the Museum of Traditional Nigerian Architecture (MOTNA) amongst other places. After seeing these great shots of my homeland, Westminster, London at lunchtime, 13.04.06 does not look so cool. I wish I was home this Easter. I must forward this to Uncle Lemmy who is a photographer.

Kind Regards

Hi Emiel.
Thanks to bring me good memories now that am back in Madrid.Unfortunately for me i couldnt travel throughout the country in my 6 six years working in Nigeria but the hash, the beach, the faces...the people... it is Nigeria, the heartbit of Africa and there is always a natural impulse that makes u go back to Nigeria. Everytime i travel for business my face has a big smile. Congrats

I am impressed witht he work you have done. I've been outside Nigeria and in the U.S., it is hard to find positive things about my country even though I know they are there. I'd like to feature some of your pictures on my website. Please contact me.
Femi 27-Dec-2005 20:28
I must echo the heartfelt sentiments of other Nigerians and say thanks for such a wonderful portrayal! These are the first images of the country that have drawn me in and actually make me want to visit! I lived in Lagos and Kaduna, and am now based in Los Angeles. Can't wait to see more...
Trae Nobi 10-Dec-2005 14:11

hello there, my boyfriend is from Warri and we are living in Germany, but went in December
2003 to his homecountry and were very happy to look at these beautiful pictures. It remind us of the nice time we had in Warri.

From the bottom of my heart thank you Emiel Jegen. I wish the media can be open minded in thier portrayal of Africa in general. Your pictures have done justice to the rich and diverse culture of Nigeria, and I hope when people sees this, they can book their next vacation to Nigeria. Thank you once again and God bless.

As a nigerian-american who resides in Connecticut, USA, I was absolutely stunned by the array of pictures you had showing just how beautiful Nigeria is. Your insight and selection of pictures does a great job to show the country in a light not often seen. Your galleries are unparalled on any existing site on Nigeria and that, Emiel Jegen, is no hyperbole.
Eumann 02-Sep-2005 17:20
very nice pictures,i travelled through nigeria last year which was one of the most beautiful and culturally diverse country i had been to.was in kano, lagos,kaduna,yola,jos and calabar..
Hassan 18-Aug-2005 17:54
Nice Pics Emiel. I just hope more people will get to see the good side of Nigeria through these pictures. One of the many gifts nature has endowned on the country. Can I make use of some of the pictures please?
Trisha 15-Aug-2005 05:07
Hi Emiel, i just spent a enjoyable time looking through your photos, you have a great collection. I am hoping to visit Lagos and Warri next year. It looks better then a lot of the comments and views i get from other websites and also peoples opinions. Where there is bad there is also good and i am sure there is also a lot of good in a country such as Africa, God hasn't made a mistake with His creation as you have shown with your nature photos. Excelent work!! I hope you will be adding more photos soon.
April 17-Jul-2005 18:52
Very nice photos I found via a Google search. I learned a great deal looking at them. Thank you for making them available for all to see.
Mayamba 20-Jun-2005 06:35
Thanks! I'm a Nigerian living in the US now, but I grew up in Jos, not far from the zoo, and went to Yankari several times, it was in my home state at the time. Whatever you're doing in Nigeria, thank you!

Lovely pictures. I most enjoyed the captions and what they represent. Thanks you.
Guest 15-May-2005 14:29
Stunning pictures, really enjoyed them
Jo 23-Apr-2005 13:57
Hi Emiel!!! It was such a pleasant surprise to discover this site!!! Truly delighted and timely too because I'm currently putting together a scrapbook of my Ogunu photos. You did an excellent job with the photos. You made life in Warri truly colorful and alive. I am so impressed.
Oh, btw, I was your colleague from the Accenture-Manila Office,Philippines. I was a member of IBS Conversion Team. Do you remember the Task List Detailed Conversion Design that we both reviewed together? :-)
Keep up the great talent!!
Obiora Ofole 04-Mar-2005 18:32
Thanks for these lovely pictures. I am a doctor working in the caribbean and it surprises me that people here don't have a clue how Nigeria and Africa is like, except for the bad things they see on tv.At least this will educate somebody somewhere.Keep it up.

Nice Site, thanks

Hallo Emiel,

Aan de Nederlandse reacties denk ik te merken dat je Nederlander bent. Mijn complimenten voor de mooie fotoreportage die een land wat zo vaak negatief in het nieuws is eens van een andere kant laat zien. Zelf ben ik hier enkele malen met een schip geweest. Dat laatste is de reden dat ik deze site vond al Googlend. Wellicht kun je mij helpen. Ik ben op zoek naar een schip genaamd Ducado zij moet in Warri liggen volgens mijn informant. Het is een ex Nederlands Koelschip en ooit gebouwd in 1969 dus al erg oud. Wellicht kun je mij even mailen. Blijf zulke mooie reportages maken!
groet Huug Pieterse

Hello Emiel:

Thanks for the beautiful pictures of Nigeria! I am sharing your links with my fellow Nigerians and American friends to see another side of Nigeria we don't see in the news. The beautiful plants, birds and gentle people that I remember growing up with in Lagos and Port Harcourt in the 70's and 80's.

Take Care, Yomi

Hello Emiel, I hope you can help me. I am an artist disabled with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis ALS "Lou Gehrig's disease " also called motor neuron disease MND. This progressive, fatal neuromuscular disease has left me paralyzed in a wheelchair unable to care for myself.

To raise awareness of ALS/MND I have started a project attempting to get a piece of my art photographed in every country in the world. I am looking for a way to get a piece my artwork photographed in Nigeria. I can e-mail a JPEG image of the art to you, then you can print it, photograph the printout of my art on location and e-mail the image back to me. I ask that the picture be taken outside with some distinguishable features to tell me where the photograph was taken. I also ask that you tell me the place/ town it is photographed in and any other interesting information you might wish to include.

This is strictly a noncommercial project. Despite my severe disability, I have done a considerable amount of work for the ALS Association and the Muscular Dystrophy Association in the United States, appeared on television several times, featured in national and local publications, testified at government hearings in support of the disabled, etc.

This project seems impossible sitting at home every day in my wheelchair. But it can come true with a little help from the kindness of strangers. I ask you kindly to give it serious consideration. A small amount of your time will make a world of difference to me!

I hope you can help me with this important request or refer me to someone who can. Thanks for your time and I look forward to your response, sincerely, Fred Siwak, Ipswich, Massachusetts, United States of America. E-mail:

I'm trying so hard to reach every country. Is there any way you can help me with Nigeria? Thanks!
see for more about me and my project

Hoi Emiel, schitterende foto's, ik ben nu zelf bezig om iets soortgelijks te maken van Port Harcourt, ik heb stapels digitale foto's, wilde er steeds wel wat mee doen maar wist niet hoe, je hebt me op een idee gebracht. Als het klaar is laat ik het wel weten,
Groeten Anneke (Port Harcourt Rumukuroshe RA resident van 2000-2003, pas nog even terug geweest voor vakantie)
keith 23-May-2004 08:35
I enjoyed the photos,
I worked in Warri , Escravos and Port Harcourt in the early 80's and have a lot of good memories.
The pepper and banga soup with gari, a bottle of star and even some kiki was fine.
In Aberdeen we can get the African food and beer at "The soul and spice" bar.
I also enjoyed swimming and BBQ's at Abraka.
When based at Escravos we went water skiing around the tank farm, diving and fishing.
We would catch huge snapper from the supply boats
I also got a taste for a bit of Fela Kuti music during my stay.
I had a great time.
Thanks for the viewing the photos

olajide Iyaniwura 22-May-2004 13:38
Dear Emiel Jegen,
I looked through your photographs and must say that i thoroughly enjoyed them.

I am actually putting together a FREE qualterly magazine for Nigerians resident outside of the country and should be grateful if you would allow the use of some of your images in that publication. I will ofcourse fully acknowledge the source if you grant your permission.

Egemen 13-Apr-2004 08:31
I am one of your colleagues' (Emre Oskaylar of Accenture) friend located in Dubai. He actually sent me this link and I must confess that I am very impressed with the shots in that the composition and light adjustments are all perfect! I sent the same link to my Turkish friends here in Dubai who are interested in photography too!
Congrats once again!

Unfortunately i did not shot pictures during my stay.

How nice it is to see photos from another part of Africa. I hope your stay in Nigeria is a great success. My first experience of Africa as a resident is an eye opening experience. How nice it is to see all this greenery after the dust and sand of Khartoum!
Peter Rex 22-Feb-2004 18:55
Dear Gea, Emiel and Jan,

Very nice site you have here. And - you actually manage to make Warri look attractive - quite an accomplishment :-)

You are all at anytime welcome in "my" Lagos.
