Yesterday, social media went agog when news of Jidenna‘s latest interview with VLADTV.Com hit the airwaves. In the said interview, the singer says he ‘brought in a lot of AK47s and employed military commandos when he came to Nigeria to bury his father for fear of being kidnapped in the country. Nigerians didn’t find this comment funny and went for his jugular on social media. Sadly, Jidenna is not as popular in Nigeria as he is in America and very little is known about him.
