The singer disclosed this while speaking about his biggest inspiration during a performance on NPR’s Tiny Desk, a video series of live concerts hosted by NPR Music in Washington.
“The inspiration for me has been my father, a Nigerian-American like me. He studied in the States. I studied there myself. I went to HBCU (Historically Black Colleges and Universities), a predominantly black college,” he said.
“My dad went to one as well. He used to work at Burger King. He was a manager at Burger King.”https://www.instagram.com/p/CLure4nj-EL/?utm_source=ig_embed&ig_mid=757BE973-DD87-4A49-A5D7-72AC4F57A6D2This is coming days after the singer paid a visit to the old apartment in the United States where he and his cousins, Sina Rambo and B-Red lived 12 years ago.
