Nigerian-American rapper, Olubowale Victor Akintimehin better known as Wale, has averred that it’s difficult to please Nigerian parents as they are never impressed.
Taking to micro-blogging platform, Twitter to share his experience with his own parents he recalled how they reacted when he signed with his record label Inter-scope.
According to the ‘on chill’ crooner even after signing a record deal, a week later his parents insisted he got a proper job.
“Nigerian parents…. The toughest ..
Remembering when I signed wit inter-scope and a week later they asked me to get a job. They never impressed and that’s maybe why I’m like this”, he tweeted.
Wale’s tweet stirred reactions on the platform with tweeps sharing their experiences with their Nigerian parents who they described as tough.
A Twitter user @xjaylive wrote,
“That’s how Nigerian parents behave, they feel you may not make it as a musician, Fela was sent to Uk to study medicine and he ended up studying music. Nigerian parents ain’t backing up their kids to do music. You need a stubborn heart to do music in a Nigerian home”.
