Nigerian Singer Paul Dairo, also called Paul Play, says he can put up with racism in the UK more than the scourge of tribalism in Nigeria.

In an Instagram post on Monday, the singer revealed that he is in the UK and yet to encounter racism compared to what he described as “the manipulation and evil schemings of tribalism”.

He wrote “I’m in the UK and I’m yet to experience the kind of racism that is comparable to the manipulation and evil schemings of tribalism in my country. If a white man is racist to me, I’ll take it lightly and move on.

“Do you know why? I’m in his country. I mean, what should I expect? Unless he or she tries to be difficult by getting physical about it. I’m in his space so I can only decide to take it in my stride because some people have totally made my home unworthy for even animals to survive in.

“This is for all you guys frowning because you experiencing racism. You’re better off leaving for home if it’s too much for you because I’ve got news for you. It’s never going to stop!”

He said those complaining about racism should focus on their goals, adding that Africans should face their greedy leaders who makes the country unappealing.

“So better brace up and focus on your goals and achieve rather than straining nerves over a perpetual problem. In fact what we should worry about is systemic racism in any country black people help to build.

“I’m not talking about Nigerians, sorry, I’m talking about African, Americans, Jamaicans, Haitians, and others. Africans should face their greedy leaders because they’re in on the west and China’s plan to indulge in the economic invasion of our motherland.

“We crying about Ukrainians being racist by allowing their own people to get on the train first. Listen, guys, if my child and your child need to be saved. I’m here with my child but you suffered yours so bad he has to come live in my house. When trouble comes who will I save first?” the singer said.
