      Nigerians dont like African Americans, they call black americans akata. So I dont know why he bothered. And at least, however, he has good intentions…but they dont like black ppl like that.

    Dont care for Tyrese Gibson so Phony and Pretentious all that Ranting he did has subsided but we still now he is the dumbest negro alive!

      Yup. He rants. And he doesnt research, neither does his pr person on staff. Nigerians abhor black americans. I just got through talking to two friends of mine who asked me what akata meant. Nigerians talk so much crap about you guys.

    Publisher: I am curious. Why are African Americans so into Nigerians, Nigerians talk about them so horribly. It is disgusting. They call them akata. Tyrese, well meaning, is still a laughing stock.
