Kcee Embarrassed In America Over Kidnapped Chibok Girls

Limpopo crooner, Kcee, got the embarrassment of his life recently while on his American tour when cab drivers quizzed him on the fate of the Chibok girls who were kidnapped by Boko Haram in April.

Kcee shared his experience during a press conference to unveil PMAN’s peace pet project tagged Lighting Up The Unity Flame, at PMAN office, Opebi, Lagos, earlier in the week.

“I was thoroughly embarrassed in the US a couple of days ago while I was on tour. In New York, the airport cab driver who took me to my hotel, as soon as he discovered I was Nigerian asked, ‘have they found those girls.’ I was so embarrassed I had nothing to say.

 Again it happened in Los Angeles when another cab man asked me the same question.

 Can you imagine a cab man saying that? It was very embarrassing and I realised that whether we like it or not, where ever we find ourselves in the world, we must defend the image of our country but we have to start from the very source of this problems.”

According to the singer, it was a reflection of the fact that indeed a lot was wrong about the image of the country.

“That’s the reason I have come out to support PMAN today as it unveils its pet project which is the lighting of the unity flame. Today it is Ebola, tomorrow it is Boko Haram and before you say jackie Robinson, its kidnapping. We all need to pull our resources together to make change, we have the capacity to do that.”
