Elena Perlino Details The Lives Of Nigerian Prostitutes In Italy.


Nigerian women are being trafficked to Italy hoping for a better life – but often end up working the streets as prostitutes.

Their plight has been highlighted by Paris-based photographer Elena Perlino, originally from Italy, who began to notice the presence of young African women working on the streets during her commutes from Turin.

She said: 'I decided to start from this surreal vision to tell a story. I have been working on the topic for several years, focusing mainly on the Italian connection.'

Perlino reveals that many Nigerian women come to Italy hoping to make enough money to support their families back home, but often they get trapped or tricked by traffickers into working in the sex trade.


Arrests, violence and abuse often follow.

Traffickers demand on average more than 50,000 euros (US $60,000) for travel expenses and accommodation, with the women having to work as prostitutes until their debts are paid off.

As Claudio Magnabosco, former official of the European Parliament, explained: 'The women are still coming: they are younger than ever and arrive here with massive debts to pay off. 

'They are forced into prostitution and are now increasingly reinventing themselves as madams or working for the traffickers, also trafficking men, children for adoptions and organs and drug dealing.

'These are the activities of the powerful Nigerian mafia, which is also involved in arms dealing. What has changed is that the madams are now less violent towards the girls, having understood that if they mistreat them the girls run away: the girls forced into the sex industry now get to keep a little of the money they earn and this makes their lives a little bit more tolerable. 


'As they cannot find a real way out, they get used to life as prostitutes and prostitution becomes their only source of income.'

Eighty per cent of women trafficked to Italy come from Benin City, Edo State, in south Nigeria.

The photographer explained: ‘My work attempts to show a complex phenomenon that crosses Italy from North to South.

‘This involves many cities including Turin, Milan, Genoa, Rome, Naples and Palermo and thousands of Nigerian and Italian people.’

  1. These girls look pretty strong to me, not amputated, not disadvantaged in any way. So why resort to prostitution? It is really sad that a lot of people still think they cannot make money doing something legit. They just want to own a thousand bucks at once yet they end up spending the money treating all manner of illness sef. What's pushing them to Italy in the first place? Today is not the first we will hear woes and tales about the harsh business landscape here in Nigeria but people still make good money, legitimately too. They should just stop being lazy abeg, looking for quickie money and people should learn to have some patience too.

    I do believe that everyone is blessed with certain measure of talent, take time to nurture and turn them around to income-generating interests. When Thelma starts making money off this blog now, people will be quick to forget all the arduous hours it takes to type and think of exciting stories. The months she didn't get money off the blog, did she resort to anything immoral or illegal? I'm doubt that.

    The fear for us millennial is our sudden obsession over loads of money and our refusal to get our hands busy to make that money! Let them go and carry 'konkere' at building sites jo. Lemme not vex.

    1. I'm a Benin Boy, Yes. I'm totally not in support of Prostitution as a source of income.
      That said...
      The way you have rubbished their mental/Physical strength to 'hustle' this way, to me, is quite ridiculous.

      A lady without Passport caught by italian Police, the question is how did the lady get there? Did she teleport herself? Do u know what it takes to pass through a desert void of any living thing without water and food sometimes for days? Do u think Thelma can do that(all due respect), I'm Using her as an example since u brought her blog as an example of Self employment.
      Do you know what it takes to be in a family of Six without any form of help from no one? (For the record, in Benin it is rare for close relations(cousins n aunts) to take it upon themselves to help their extended family aside for the Nuclear).
      So you grow up seeing your own cousins and aunts with cars, houses and all but u can't 'taste d money' unlike psquare? Den you overhear their secret of riches, which to you is another way to bring your own family out of the turmoil without resorting to violence. You summon up the courage to face death in the face just to make Ur own family better.

      They get to Italy and realize they can't come back Cos of all they passed tru in the desert to get to there. That moment prostitution becomes the only way in a country that speaks a different language and diff. culture, to make something out for the rest of their families.

      And here You think it is Laziness, I resent that. Yes, Prostitution is Bad. It is not a Good way to make a Living. But the least of it is you Thinking going out of this country By Land is an Act of Laziness.
      I hope you understand dat it won't be difficult to be prostitute in Nigeria and even Benin city to be precise.
      I really hope you can Retract from Making Hasty conclusions on these ladies.

      PS: I have No affiliation/relation in Italy but I just feel that Empathy
      Cos it takes a whole lot to do what they do just For their Families back home! That's an Act of Selflessness my dear

    2. I had to read your comment over and over again, it just appears to me you are in full support of their actions. U mean prostitution is the ONLY way out? I did not jump to hasty conclusions and I spoke in general terms as well, looking beyond these ones that we have read their story. If I may ask though, what sort of job did they hope to get there in the first place? People have been in tougher situations and didn't have to prostitute. Granted I may not have had the same experience as them being in a strange land but I haven't exactly had it rosy either. Let me not even begin with my story...nothing justifies it please. Nothing at all.

    3. That being said, I am not condemning nor damning them but the truth be told, some other job could have been done, it may just not pay much.

      Delete
    4. Uyi... well said! *hugs*

      Oyinlola! I love you but for the first time, i'm gonna have to call you out on your comment! I think you're being too judgmental! And after all you "said".. you went on to "say" you're not condemning or damning them! Lol! If you were now condemning them nko?!

      You really do not understand. People make choices they live to regret... some more than the others. You've never been in those shoes before and you're just seeing it from one tiny angle. Uyi tried to broaden it but u just refused to see it.
      I am in no way encouraging prostitution... but really! Where's your sense of empathy in all of these?!

  3. But seriously, why do these girls keep falling for this scam? I have watched several documenteries, and movies that shows us what these girls who r promised heaven and earth when they get to italy end up doing. But these girls will neva learn.hmmm. I refuse to judge anyone. Na how we see d world.

  4. I'm from benin city and I still don't know why lots of girls come from edo state. An edo girl saying she's going to Italy for holiday, school, or work ? Everyone automatically thinks prostitution. I hope these girls get the help they need and hopefully sent back home.

Turia Pitt Suffered 65% Burns But Loved Conquered All...

Amazing Story Shared by Dr. Ben Carson on Facebook, i thought it is inspiring and i decided to share;

The Australian ex-model Turia Pitt suffered burns to 65 per cent of her body, lost her fingers and thumb on her right hand and spent five months in hospital after she was trapped by a grassfire in a 100 kilometre ultra-marathon in the Kimberley. Her boyfriend decided to quit his job to care for her recovery. 
Days ago, in an interview for CNN they asked him:
"Did you at any moment think about leaving her and hiring someone to take care of her and moving on with your life?"

His reply touched the world:

"I married her soul, her character, and she's the only woman that will continue to fulfill my dreams."

This made me very reflective. I just wonder; if the person you love today encounters an incident or accident that transforms who they are physically, it could be amputation, it could be paralysis, it could be severe burns that scald their flesh beyond recognition, w…

Just checking in to sign the register. Lol. It's been a very busy week and it looks like it might be an even busier weekend. I was hoping to get some writing done when I got to the airport yesterday but I even almost missed my flight. It was hopeless trying to do any work on the plane as it was bumpy af, and this toddler behind me wouldn't stop screaming in piercing shrieks like he was being exorcised. 
I got into town pretty late and needed to keep an appointment ASAP. I'm heading out right now and it's going to be a long day, but thought I should drop this first. 
Have a splendid day. Im'ma be back soon.

After listening to a song "IF YOU LOVE SOMEBODY TELL THEM THAT YOU
LOVE THEM and watching the season film of The Secret Life of

THE ‘NEW’ SIDE CHICK: I WAS HER

A side chick is commonly known as a mistress or a woman that’s romantically involved with a man who is in a committed relationship.  However after doing some reflecting, I realize that’s not the only type of side chick.  I want to discuss “the new side chick”–a woman who decides to stay by a man’s side after he has expressed his lack of relationship intentions with her through his words or actions.  So many women have made this mistake at least once in their lifetime, and unfortunately I’ve done the same thing. I like to think of the new side chick as an appetizer.  You’re there just to satisfy the immediate appetite of the man, but as soon as that mouth-watering entrée comes out to the table, you will get pushed to the side, literally.  Why?  Because that entrée is what he really wanted; he went to the restaurant to order steak, not hot wings.  You were just a placeholder, fling, temporary commitment, or  maybe even just a “good ol time” until what he really wanted was presented to hi…

Shhhhhhh....

I'm in an amebo mood tonight. Don't ask me, I honestly don't know why. Also I'd like to share too but I'd do that anonymously in the comment section. Tonight I want to talk about secrets. It's ok, we can all be anonymous. 
Is it true that EVERYBODY has a secret? 
Is there anyone here who doesn't have a secret? I'd really like to know; You're a completely open book and there's not ONE thing about you that you wouldn't mind other people knowing about? Please raise your hands up. 
And for the rest of us, what's something about you that no one knows, or very few people know? Who's got a dark secret here, or a weird one, or a funny one even? I really don't mean to be invasive but I don't want to be the only one sharing, plus I think hearing other people's secrets is quite fun, don't you think?

Let's Be Random Together! (Open Keypad).

Hey guys, a while back blog reader F said something about creating an Open Keypad post, where you can write whatever you want in the comment section. I thought it was a fun idea!
So who is interested? Comment on anything you feel like, ask me or anyone a question, talk about how your day went, your job, your interests, tell us something about you that we don't know, share a testimony with us, rant about anything you feel like, talk about your crush/boo/spouse/relationship/marriage, challenges you're facing, ANYTHING AT ALL! 
I'll only make one request; that we stay civil. 

(F it was you who made this suggestion, right? I'm not too sure and I can't even remember the post the comment was made on). 
BTW please Ejoeccome out come out, wherever you are!

Closed Chapter...

Hello everyone, yesterday a friend said to me, Thelma I love your blog, I've told so many people about your blog, I think you're a very good writer but I feel there's something you're not doing right"

This friend was the first person who won our beauty of the day contest back then in 2014. Then we had met just once through a mutual friend. I mentioned the blog to her and she became an instant reader. I wouldn't have exactly called her a friend then but yesterday as we sat down waiting for our Uber to come get us from Wal-Mart, she's definitely my friend and I knew she was coming from a good place when she said she had much higher expectations of my blog.

Me too.

But you see, in the last year or so, maybe even longer than that, I haven't felt much joy in blogging. It began to feel more and more of a laborious chore, one which I hardly reaped any fruits from.

I really love writing, I love sharing my life and my experiences with others and I've enjoy…
