OMG. just read this. its so funny. the video is even hilarious. "you send us a basketball player and we'll send you $10,000000. grin grin grin . Naija don suffer

Somebody help us…we need to clarify things here…

Nigeria’s Olympic Basketball team player Al Farouq Aminu was recently approached by US celebrity news website TMZ and asked about his nationality.

Aminu clearly stated he wasn’t a Nigerian and had never stepped foot inside the country. He however divulged that his father is and as such, he has the right to play for Nigeria due to dual nationality.

‘I’m originally from Atlanta, Georgia but my dad is Nigerian’, the former LA Clippers player said.

Aminu who current plays as a small forward in the US for the New Orleans Hornets, played in all five games for the Nigerian Basketball Team in the London 2012 Olympics.

Check out the video below…

P.S: TMZ in the course of their comedic staff discussion make reference to the overplayed Nigerian scam situation..
