Jidenna clear the misunderstanding

Jidenna finally tries to clear the misunderstanding created by his interview by VLAD TV where he talked about his Nigerian homeland and being Light-skinned in hisVillage. The dapper rapper appeared on yesterday’s edition of Power 101.5’s Breakfast club with his Wondaland collective which includes Janelle Monae and Deep Cotton, where they were grilled by the show’s hosts DJ Envy, Charlamagne Tha god & Angela Yee. On this interview he talks about how Nigeria such a proud place and of his memories growing up:

“I remember coming to America, in the US you get a highest score on the test and your teacher says “bring it home to your parents. show your parents.” So I brought it home to my father like “dad I got a 98 on my math exam”, and he said “ah ah 98? Where are the other two points? Go there and bring them back, then I will celebrate with you” “And that’s how I grew up with everything I did, basketball, soccer, football. Everything that I played. In Nigeria its standard to try to check somebody if you see them making misstep. With the words that I said I didn’t make a miscalculation in my experience, but I can see how certain people perceive that”

Aaaaaw! We forgive you Jidenna, who on earth could be mean when you look this CLEAN! You’re a classic man indeed.jidenna
