    Nigerians can claim sha. Prince Nico is a half Cameroonian! Mbarga is a name from the Central/South Regions of Cameroon. That he was born to a Nigerian Mother in Abakalili does not make him 100% Nigerian.
    Bella, if he was half American or British wuna for write am in bold capital letters.

    @Eni….BN never said he was full Nigerian. The article rightly claimed that he WAS born in Abakiliki.

    You just felt the urge to say for that he is “only” half Nigerian for whatever reason. Well mission accomplished so enjoy!

    I would definitely play and dance with my mum with this song on my wedding day. Mother’s are life.

    @Anon point of correction. Cameroon was never part of nigeria. Part of Southern cameroon broke off and joined nigeria. And his dad comes from the french speaking region
