Al-Farouq Aminu is a basketball player who was part of the Nigerian Olympic team. He used to play with the Los Angeles Clippers and is currently with the New Orleans Hornets.
What’s interesting, however, is that despite the fact he played for Nigeria at the Olympics, he doesn’t identify himself as Nigerian and has never been to the country. When asked “So are you from Nigeria?” the player replies “No, I’m originally from Atlanta Georgia, but my dad’s from Nigeria.”
He also reveals he’s never stepped foot in the country, saying, “No I haven’t been. I wanna go though” Check out the video below.
