Grammy award-winning singer, Damini Ogulu a.k.a Burna Boy has revealed what many schools in Nigerians teach the upcoming generations.

The ‘Question coroner’ during an interview disclosed how many are taught to feel inferior and powerless to the Whites.

According to him, Nigerian schools don’t teach anything significant about the country.

Their teachings are mostly centered on foreign countries and the Queen of England.

Burna Boy expressed how eager he is to hear the truth about the country before slavery.

He added that the British government came into Nigeria to brainwash the people into thinking they were slaves, whereas, they were Kings.

Burna Boy noted how the constant teaching of British countries and others create fears in Nigerians and make them believe they are inferior and powerless.

“THEY DON’T TEACH US THAT IN SCHOOLS. THEY DON’T TELL US ABOUT OURSELVES, THEY TELL US ABOUT YOU GUYS, AND THEY TELL US ABOUT THE QUEEN OF ENGLAND. AND YOU KNOW, THEY TELL US A BUNCH OF STUFF THAT HAS NO SIGNIFICANCE TO US. THAT SHOWS US THAT, PUTS IN OUR HEAD THAT, LOOK, WE HAVE NO POWER. ALL WE ARE IS INFERIOR TO THESE PEOPLE. I ALSO WANT THE TRUTH OF OUR HISTORY BEFORE SLAVERY, BEFORE THE WHITE MAN CAME, AND BEFORE ALL THAT. TO BE THE REAL HISTORY THAT IS TOLD. THIS IS NOT HOW IT ALWAYS WAS. SOME PEOPLE CAME HERE AND LIED TO YOU AND TOOK THE CROWN OF YOUR HEAD, AND TOLD YOU THAT YOU WERE A SLAVE WHEN THEY CAME HERE AND MET YOU AS A KING”.
