American singer, Swae Lee has revealed that he is partly a Nigerian.
The rapper made the revelation while clarifying why he attached the Nigerian flag to a tweet announcing he was jumping on the South African genre, Amapiano wave.
He took to Twitter to announce he would be experimenting with the trending South African genre, Amapiano.
To the South Africans, the rapper added a Nigerian flag to the tweet which didn’t sit down well with them.
He wrote with a Nigerian flag emoji at the end:
“Wait till y’all hear Swae Lee on Amapiano”.Swae Lee
In the comment section, some South Africans trooped to accuse Swae Lee of discrediting their country, the origin of Amapiano, and wrongly crediting it to Nigeria.
Swae Lee, however, clarified in follow-up tweets that his initial tweet was misunderstood.
According to him, he added the Nigerian flag because he is partly Nigerian.
“For the ones outraged about the flag, I put it because I’m partly Nigerian. I didn’t say anything about the creation of the genre y’all tweaking”.Swae Lee
Swae Lee added:
“Bigs up to the South Africans for creating this beautiful sh*t”.Swae Lee
