Jidenna has some serious allegation about his home country Nigeria.
The “Classic man” singer has made claims that his family was under threat in Nigeria because they are light skinned.
According to this “light skin brother” and I use the term “light skin” very light, because I’ve seen lighter Nigerians.
His entire light skin family of Igbo were at high risk of being kidnapped.
“Our family was light. When you’re light-skinned you’re a heavier target for being kidnapped. Because you’re seen as more valuable. You’re seen as white. You have more money. We were robbed. Our family has been assaulted. It’s different. For us, we’ve always been a target. When you come to America, it’s different.”
“The fact that you have African blood in you is gonna make it hard. When you’re light-skinned, you’re a heavier target for being kidnapped because you’re seen as more valuable. We were robbed – our family’s been assaulted. We’ve had a lot of issues.”
After this interview was published on YouTube the internet reacted accordingly and he was called out about being more than a classic man, a classic liar too.
I’m not light skin or Nigerian but I’m African and the only “light skin” people in danger in Africa (Malawi) mostly are Albinos and this caramel skinned brother needs to sing on and stop with this light skin lies.
