l Was Mocked At US College For Being Black’ – Davido

Nigerian singer, Davido recently revealed he was mocked for being black while he was at a college in Alabama in the United States.

The ‘Blow My Mind’ crooner made this known during an interview with Recording Academy, organisers of the Grammy Awards.

The singer opened up on some of his experiences with racism.

In his words;

“It’s crazy, because I’m from both America and Africa, so I know how both sides think. I went to school in Alabama. I went to college at 15. I was very young. And Alabama was a predominantly white state,” he said.

“So being an African kid in a university where it’s 13% black people, it’s amazing. It’s not easy.

Sometimes just because of the color of your skin, you might not get a lot of honesty from somebody. You feel me? 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.”36m
