During a media parley held on Friday, April 11, 2014, at the Wheatbaker Hotel in preparation for the premiere of the Half of A Yellow Sun movie, he explained why he claimed to be originally from London while on the Ellen Degeneres show.

According to him, it was because it (London) is his place of birth and not because he wanted to dissociate himself from Nigeria.

Quote
‘I was trying to give a honest answer about where I was born and so I said London, which was where I was born. To me, it was a surprising reaction that people then concluded that I was saying I did not identify as a Nigerian. I’m Nigerian-British but if you ask me where I was born or where I am originally from, I can’t say Enugu because I wasn’t born there‘, he said.

This guy clearly does not know whats up! Man, you are clearly from Nigeria either you know it, like it or not, because now you are winning awards and you have an Igbo name, if you are not originally from Nigeria then you must change your name to a British name, but even with that #wenogogree

He was born in London and can rightly lay claim to the fact that he's British. Case closed!

carrying a spanish passport does not make you spanish. you are a full-blooded Nigerian, and also a naturalized citizen of Spain.
next time, apply for a Nigerian passport and you won't need a visa on it to visit Nigeria.
