“Every other continent is laughing at us” – Jidenna speaks on “African Time” (Watch)

Nigerian-American rapper, Jidenna was billed to perform at the One Africa Music Fest that was held in the UK over the weekend. However, he was unable to perform due to time constraints.

Speaking to Factory78 TV, he explained that the notion of “African Time” is something we as Africans should learn to do without if we want to become great again.

The “Classic Man” crooner stated categorically that all other continents make fun of Africans for their inability to keep to time. He added that he is still awaiting an official apology from the organizers of the event.

He said: “I was at the first One Africa Fest in Barclays Centre, Brooklyn. It was a success.

“It wasn’t enough for me to just do one. I really want to follow this and I want to follow this everywhere in the world.

“This fest is very important to me. I’m not sure where the ball was dropped but I do know that it came down to time management

“People make jokes about African Time but the truth is that everyone is laughing at us. We are out here joking about it but every other continent is laughing at us.

“That’s what happened to me. Davido, Tiwa’s sets were even cut off. I don’t know what exactly happened and why it happened.

“All I can say is the way we do business in our crew…. is that if we make a mistake, then we apologise to the person personally. I am still awaiting the apology personally,” he said.
