He said;
“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.

“So being an African kid in a university where it’s 13% black people, it’s amazing. It’s 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 getting to happen. you know what I’m saying? 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.”
