Nigerian Olypmic Basketball Star Al-Farouq Aminu denies Nigeria

Nigerian Olypmic Basketball Star Al-Farouq Aminu who played for Nigeria in the London Olympic 2012 has denied being Nigerian or ever setting foot in Nigeria although he would like to. In a brief interview with TMZ, the basketball star admitted to never having set foot in Nigeria and although he’s father is Nigerian,  he says he is from Atlanta Georgia but has dual citizenship.

I think at this point I am a bit confused, did you notice that most of the Nigerian Basketball players were all boys abroad? I mean, I am sure we have people in Nigeria that can represent Nigeria right. Or is this just another way for somebody to get their share of the national cake….wink wink!
