African American singer Jidenna who is actually Nigerian got the blast of his life when he insulted his home country.
He has a single “classic man” featuring Kendrick Lamar.
He described himself as “Igbo Nigerian” this is what he said to receive abuses.
“Our family was light. Therefore when we go to our village… and when I actually buried my father, I had to bring a lot of AK47s. I had to employ military commandos… just to bury my father. Because when you’re light skinned, you’re heavier target for being kidnapped. Because you’re seen as more valuable. You’re seen as err… you’re White. Therefore you have more money. You’re American, therefore you have more money. If you have more money, you’re easy to kidnap. And if you’re easy to kidnap, we’re gonna get you. For me being light skinned in Nigeria, in my family, it was difficult. It was always challenging. We were hounded. We were robbed”
Celebrities including Davido, Don Jazzy and Skales(who got the bashing of his life) commented on the issue.
