American-born Nigerian singer, Jidenna, has given his opinion as to why many Nigerians are known for scamming.
The singer, while speaking at TheBreakFastClub radio show, said Nigerians are known for scamming not because they are bad people but because they are smarter than a lot of people.
The ‘Classic Man’ singer also noted that Nigerians are smarter in virtually everything they do and that is why people see them that way.
When asked if he had ever scammed before, the singer who was stern while answering the question said “No I didn’t scam.”
He went on to say that though he has done somethings in the past by selling cheap things as original way back in Boston, US, and that was the only scam he ever committed.
“I’ve done some things, I used to sell chains in China town. I get them for cheap in China Town and sell it to white boys in Boston. In the hood I know all the ladies’ jewellries, so then I’d go to buy the cheap one. That was the only scam I’ve done,” he said.
Jidenna made headlines recently when he released his second album title ’85 To Africa’. He featured Grammy-award winning singer Seun Kuti in the first track.
The album, according to him was inspired by series of unfortunate events that led to Jidenna leaving America for Africa to record.
