Living Nigerian Afropop Legend, Davido, real name, David Adeleke has revealed what Americans think of young Nigerians with money.
In an interview with Channel 4, the young highly talented music icon said the United States Police had detectives over to search his Atlanta Georgia house when he first bought it.
According to him, the neighbourhood where he bought the house was so cool (wealthy neighbourhood) that the US police suspected he could be into something illegal to afford the house. He added, he was the only black person living in the neighbourhood and he paid for the house “cash”.
In his words
I’m the only African person in that neighbourhood so I moved in and two days later, detectives came to my door. They came in and searched the whole house asking me what I do because I bought that house cash. I don’t have a problem with authorities but it might be shocking,” he said.
I won’t say it is racism, that’s how they’ve been brainwashed. Living in America, you are brought up to think that Africa is a no-go area. In Africa, we are brought up to think that these people took everything from us so that is something that we have to fix.
