John Legend spoke to French Clique, who asked him if he will consider meeting with Donald Trump like Kanye West did yesterday.

John was clear that he feels Kanye was used as a publicity stunt and he’s disappointed that Kanye said had he voted, it would have been for Trump.

“Trump – his message has been corrosive to the country… And for Kanye to support that message is very disappointing”.

    Kanye went on his own oh Johnnie, please speak for yourself and not for Kanye cos he went to talk about bullying, cultural diversity etc so he clearly knows what he’s doing.

      I strongly feel that a lot of Nigerians ( Not all, but a majority) should stay out of these conversations.
      Lets stick to aso ebi talks, discussing how much EFCC collected from Dasuki deal, also commenting ‘ i tap into this blessing under wedding pictures as well as gay bashing and you know other topics we seem to be really passionate about.
      as you can see in these comments and a lot of Nigerians supporting Trump, Activisim, human rights etc is not yet our thing.

    john legend u are stupid. ur lastest album flopped heavily on the charts.

    hillary Clinton used beyonce jay z katy perry and the entire Hollywood for publicity, did anybody criticise her. she prostituted the entire music and film industry during her campaign did anybody criticise her.

    These people are still angry that their candidate (hillary Clinton) lost. get over it. trump has proved many of u wrong. he is a racist, he is anti woman , he hates gay people. he has debunked those claims thru his actions by hiring lots of women in his cabinet (women of colour included), blacks (ben carson and that nigerian man)etc

    this man has proved u people wrong over and over again. biko give him a chance.

    u are angry about the statements he makes. pls I would rather have someone who says bad things (donald trump) as president than someone who is corrupt and a liar and will sell their country to the highest bidder (hillary clinton) as president

    You are a walking cliche of the diasporan. Just because you couldn’t hack it in Nigeria does not confer on you a right of superiority, deigning to tell us what to think or comment on. Who died and made you queen?

    If you could think farther than lady gaga tells you, you’d realise the Clintons see you as tools. Ask yourself this, before the elections how many times has she turned up in your neighbourhoods? after her husband signed those 90s crime bills, did she speak out about its ill effects? Did she ever apologise for her “super predators” comment??

    Maybe rather than wasting time obsessing about Nigerian comments, ponder this question, when the whites are no longer a majority, who’ll still be the oppressed minority, the Asians? the Hispanics? surely it’d be the green people.

    @Bruno, our politicians do their grabbing in “the other room” and leave the e-mails to their SA’s on “new media”.

      You are bothering to reply that mumu Atinuke? She’s the typical Nigerian sheep who thinks Hilary is some sort of role model for feminism, good governance and as she said, “human rights”. Human rights indeed LOOOL!

      “Did she ever apologise for her “super predators” comment??”
      She actually did. But it was a sorry-not-sorry kind of apology during one of the debates.

      Interesting, didn’t know she had apologised, good on her. Just tired of people coming here to act like Sec. Clinton is MLK.
