Nigeria Rumors

Antetokounmpo’s success has heartened many Greeks desperate for their country to become an incubator of dreams instead of a dead zone of joblessness. His parents, Charles and Veronica, moved from Lagos, Nigeria, to Athens in 1991. They left their young son, Francis, with his grandparents. Charles says there were no opportunities in the Nigerian economy. “It was very hard to get a job,” he says. People felt opportunity slipping away. “That’s why we decided to leave, too.”
