WHEN I WAS 15 YEARS OLD I WAS MOCKED FOR BEING A BLACK AT USA COLLEGE, SAID BY DAVIDO.

 

The  Nigerian famous music singer known as Davido shared his story on how he was mocked for being a black in USA college, when he was 15 years old.


According to him in an interview with Recording Academy (organisers of the Grammy Awards) said, " its crazy because I'm from both America and Africa. So i know how both sides think".

"I went to college at 15, i was very young and Alabama was a predominantly white state. So being an African kid in a university where its 13% black people, its amazing."


"It not easy i had to learn a lot of the things when i was like, YO WHY YOU LOOK AT ME LIKE THAT? And not even just being black being African, they used to ask me questions like, YO HOW'D YOU GET TO AMERICA? I'm like WHAT YOU MEAN? I came on a plane oh y'all got airports?"



"It's crazy because like i said, i grew up in Huntsville, Alabama this was when i was 15, 16. So I've always understood like yo this is going to happen. You know what im saying? Sometimes just because of the color of your skin you might not get a lot of honesty from somebody, so it was just crazy".

"The other way i look at it, we're screaming black lives matter right? But we killing ourselves too. So the conversation is both sided it goes both ways".
