African immigrants arrived in 1997 but most of them came during the 2000s. They employ themselves in the ‘third market’ sector by selling illegal copies of music and software cds and dvds of movies while few of them work in low intensive jobs in industry. Most of them come from Biafra, Nigeria and Senegal. Some of them also come from Congo, Zambia and Angola. The majority of them lives in Patissia and Kypseli area, in Athens.
