News: US rapper Wale tells us why he’s never been to Nigeria until now

Wale who was interview by Toolz on Beatfm yesterday. Wale said the reason he’s never been to Nigeria until now was because his parents, who are both from Ondo state, were not rich, so they couldn’t afford bring him back home.

WALE SAID:
“I grew up poor. We lived in DC, in the
projects. Getting a ticket to Nigeria on $20,000 income yearly, to my family that wasn’t really… you know…like I was a 15 year old with a decent job, I’m not going to save up to go to Nigeria. That wasn’t what I was thinking when I was that age. And then I was in college
and the money tight right then. And then I get this record deal when I dropped out of school, you’re running around so much you don’t even have time to see your own parents”
