This cute dude has got a #1 single titled 'Break Your Heart' on the UK chart currently. He is half Nigerian (Dad) and half Brazilian (Mum).

Re: Taio Cruz Is A Nigerian. by Nobody: 10:08pm On Jan 21, 2010
You guys are just jelous, simple.
The guy is young, talented, successful and handsome.
Give credit to where it is due. He is flying Nigerias flag high. His father is a lawyer and still married to his brazilian hairdresser mother.
Re: Taio Cruz Is A Nigerian. by Nobody: 10:22pm On Jan 21, 2010
Credit indeed well he has shown thus far that he disregards black women so he will not be getting money from my pocket.
Re: Taio Cruz Is A Nigerian. by riversman: 10:52pm On Jan 21, 2010
sorry mate - He aint flying Nigerian FLAG high nada, he was quick to only highlight his Brazilliand heritage wen he was in LA recently, i called him out on his BS, cos my friends asked him if he was Nigerian and he said am british, I said but your dad is naija and I met his dad on a BA flight from niaja,

His dad kept mouthing about this son of his that is the HOPE for nigeria's rebranding,, PLEASE!!!!


GAY FISH!!!!!!!!
Re: Taio Cruz Is A Nigerian. by sophy09: 2:13am On Jan 22, 2010
I still don't get it why nigerian guys are quick to disown nigeria when they get to be top shots. take seal for example he never claimed to be nigerian. Wyclef is from Haiti and he is proud of his country with all the poverty and the earthquake going on he stood by his country. why can't we nigerians be like that? Are we ashamed of ourselves?

i think hes definitely in touch with his nigerian roots, his kids ve nigerian names, he ddnt ve to give them one, i remember when heidi went on ellen's show & she just had her baby then, she proudly told the world her baby's name which was ademide or ade something & even explained what it meant & why he was given the name,
Re: Taio Cruz Is A Nigerian. by atilla(m): 1:30pm On Jan 22, 2010
guessed this before,

wondering where the name cruz came from if his dad is nigerian, maybe he took his mums name?
when I heard Taio first time, i guessed he was naija Tayo and probably changed it to Taio.

song makes him sound like a wan.ker but well, good luck to him
Re: Taio Cruz Is A Nigerian. by sjeezy8: 9:05pm On Jan 22, 2010
Nigerians have the surname name Cruz from Lagos and his dad is probably a Lagosian-brazilian while his mom is just a brazilian.

Seal is the same as Taio  (tayo)- people just get it mixed up because they dont have yoruba last names
and seals children with heidi all have yoruba middle names.
Re: Taio Cruz Is A Nigerian. by Nobody: 9:09pm On Jan 22, 2010
How did he disown Nigeria?
Re: Taio Cruz Is A Nigerian. by Nobody: 9:26pm On Jan 22, 2010
I pray he is not Nigerian.

Saw on him The Wright's show sometime last year. Not only is this guy a dawdler he is also a dullard.

Dude, had absolutely no opinion on any of the issues raised.
What da hell. I felt embarrased for him.

At a point, the Matthew Wright stopped asking him questions.

What a plonker he is!

I don't know if it's a daftness is a requirement to be a black hiphop artiste in the UK.
Have you seen that popular video of Dizzy Rascal talking about Obama on BBC . . . I was dissappointed to the state of pity.
The reporter was even making him look stupid and he kept acting the role. . . cheesy cheesy
Re: Taio Cruz Is A Nigerian. by hackney(m): 10:10pm On Jan 22, 2010
^^^^^^^ why do you think 'they' in particular are entertainers?
They didnt have what it took for school brain-wise so expecting a political symposium from someone like
dizzy rascal or taio is raising the bar a bit too high for the lads.

fair is fair.

(BTW why is someone calling Taio a gay fish like kanye?)
LMAO!!!!

I've seen smart entertainers . . . I've listened to Jay-Z and 50 Cent speak on issues like that . . . they are extremely smart.
Go listen to Lil Wayne's interview on BET's Monique show and see what I'm talking about.

These artistes here are just products of record companies taking advantage of the hype.
When you start getting famous, you should get people to school you on stuff like that, afterall American record labels school their acts on how to talk to the press.
Re: Taio Cruz Is A Nigerian. by Nobody: 11:03pm On Jan 22, 2010
50 cent?? Jayz??
C'mon now Eldee, thats an unfair comparism.

Unfortunately, I'm struggling to think of a single black American artist/entertainer that could make Taio and Dizzee Rascal appear intelligent.

^^^^ souljah boy- hes dumb as hell
Re: Taio Cruz Is A Nigerian. by chiogo(f): 11:23pm On Jan 22, 2010
Who cares if he doesn't use black girls in his videos? Less video h**s, sorry vixens. undecided

So, if his father is the Nigerian, why is his last name 'Cruz'? Don't get it.

I used 'em because they dropped out of school pretty early.
They lived in pretty rough neighbourhoods, and have been stereotyped.
The UK is more of a welfare state than America . . . the literally paid these plonkers to go to school and this is what we get??
The interviewer kept saying 'Mr Rascal, what do you think about this??' and not once did he stop to think.

Remember his lines 'All I care about is sex and violence'
Are you serious . . . in 2010?? Aren't these people role models?? I know kids that worship these guys.

Taio Cruz is a singer-songwriter and music producer. Born and raised in London to a Nigerian father and Brazilian mother. His parents had an early influence on young Taio's musical tastes.  He also speaks Yoruba, his father's language.
