    TMZ is insulting. He was not denying Nigeria. They asked him where he is from and he answered where he’s from. He’s from Atlanta, GA. He has dual citizenship. He’s allowed to represent both countries in the Olympics. Those who don’t understand this need to become more educated.

    Clearly he is proud of his father’s country because he chose to represent them in the Olympic games. Don’t be ridiculous. He was asked where he’s from and do you expect him to pretend to be born where he was not? NO, he answered the question – period. He even acknowledged Nigeria as his father’s birth place. This self hate must stop. We should not insult those who work hard to represent our countries pride. He did not have to work hard to try and bring home the Gold for Nigeria. The fact that they didn’t quite make it does not diminish his attempt.

    Let’s be honest, if it wasn’t for Aminu Nigeria would have never qualified for the Olympics in the first place. You should be thanking him not slandering him.
