Nigerian-American star, Jidenna disclosed that the reasons Nigerians often engage in fraud is because they are smarter than a lot of people.
Speaking during an interview on the Breakfast Club, Jidenna said:
“The reason why Nigerians are known for scamming is not because we are bad people. It’s because we are smarter than a lot of people”.
When asked by the presenter if he had scammed someone ever before, the handsome bachelor recalled the days he did some low key ‘scamming’.
“I don’t scam na. But yes, I have done a lot of things, I used to sell chains in China Town. I do buy some cheap stuffs, cheap female jewelry and sell them high to some high boys in the suburbs. I think that was a scam. But I never did the fake relationship thing. Never!”
Reacting to the recent arrest of 77 Nigerians by the FBI, Jidenna said Nigerians are smarter than a lot of people, hence the reason why they excel in sports and other spheres of life including scamming.
