No…That’s just… No! Al-Farouq Aminu who has been representing Nigeria at the Olympics says “Nah I’m not from Nigeria. I’m from Atlanta, GA, but my dad is from Nigeria.” Very interesting statement but I wont say I’m surprised. I’ve heard this one too many times, but I’ll say I’m a tad bit disappointed that it came from someone wearing Nigerian colors on the court at the Olympics. I mean you have millions of Nigerians rooting for you.
Anyways, on the flipside, the Nigerian scam jokes are kinda getting played out. A tad bit insulting if you ask me, but hey… maybe I’m just being uptight. Check out the video though.
