BBNaija Star Uriel Tells Canadian Rapper She Is From London....

Big Brother Naija Reality star Uriel was in an Instagram live video with Canadian rapper Daystar Peterson aka Tory Lanez and she told him she is from London but based in Lagos and later sang a song in her native language, Igbo.






Tory: So where are you from?


Uriel : I am from London but I live in Nigeria


Tory: (Exclaims) London!!!...


Uriel : But I live in Nige....(slight pause) I live in Lagos,


Tory: What did you say baby?


Uriel : I live in Lagos


Tory : Oh! In Africa, wow!!


Uriel : Yeah I do..


Tory: (continues to exclaim) wow!!!


Uriel : So I'm gonna sing a little bit in my language


Tory : Aiit, okay cool.


Uriel : Is that cool?


Tory : Yeah cool, you ready? Start.

Uriel : Okay cool.


Tory : Go ahead.


Uriel : (sings an Igbo song about praising God at all times)









Some people think she denied her Nigerian root but she if she was born in London then she is from London with Nigerian roots....Simple.

  1. But she didn't lie, she's from London. She has every right to choose any between Nigeria and London cos she's a citizen of both.

    1. I wonder oh. Babe has dual citizenship, she can choose which ever she wants. No big deal. Is naija a country to be proud of? They should free her abeg.

    2. She was born in the UK but not British. UK no dey give citizenship like USA if your parents are not British or before when you could apply through you grandparents "ancestral Visa" .
      Which one is "I'm from London, who is from London" What part of London? Only if you want to start claiming what hospital you where born in London in the UK.
      It's like saying I'm from Lagos to someone who isn't Nigerian, I'm Nigerian and was born in Lagos. Shikena 😏😏.
      If she was British, she will know the difference

    3. But she is from London.

    4. @anon 15.09 please get your facts right... she is both british and Nigerian and she can claim whichever one she wants depending on the situation. If you dont know something for a fact, dont rush to comment your ignorance.

      Delete
    5. You can say you are from London....just like Americans say im from Newyork,LA. They dont claim states or local govt like us....they usually just say where they are born/bred or brought up and Uriel was brought up in London.
      I dont know d big deal here. Is she to say shes from lagos when shes not or say im from Alu LGA in Imo state.
      How the guy one relate ???

    6. She was not born in the UK, some thing happened, her mum took both her brother and her to the uk, so she grew up there and recently a got her citizenship.

      Delete
    7. Anon 15:09 got the 2nd paragraph spot on. someone cant come New York, Paris, London. You must be citizen of a country, and not the city.
      @Anon 15:42, thanks for corroborating what a few have been saying: that she has dual citizenship. As for your last line, take it easy. One would think Anon 15:09 owes you money.

    8. Da epic pen,you lie..I live in the US and if you ask anyone where they are from,they tell you the city they were born and grew up in.Uriel has every right to have said and say she’s from London if that’s where she grew up in.

      Delete
    9. You people will just be saying what you don’t know.Ask an American where he’s from and Hel tell you a city not a state...Baltimore,New York,Chitown,Atl etc.Uriel was right abeg

    12. Da Epic, thanks a lot. I dont know about America and the English they speak over there but in Britain you wouldn't say to an outsider that ure from London without saying ure British or English. Where in London are you from? East London, South-East, North, West or where, are you from Essex, up North or where in the UK etc 😏
      U people should continue giving yourselves headache.

    13. There is nothing to this.
      She didn't lie. She was raised in London and lives in Lagos, Nigeria. She sang in Igbo. Good

      Was she raised in London? Yes.
      Can she say that? Yes.
      Does she live in Lagos? Yes.
      Did she tell a lie? No.

      CASE CLOSED. πŸ•Ή️πŸ›‘

      Delete
    14. She’s British and she can say she’s from London. Same way some can say they are New Yorkers meaning they are from NY. Awon ITK!

      Delete
    15. DA Epic you dont just get it. People say they are from London,Newyork,LA all the time. Is it a big deal? She did grow up in London,but her origins are in Nigeria. Nigerians take every little thing as one is showing off.
      Whats the big deal if she claims london. Was she brought up there;YES. Does she have dere passport;YES. Even if she got it 5mins ago.

    18. If two persons from the same country are conversing, it makes sense to say the City where you come from.
      But if they are from different countries, wouldnt it be accurate to mention your country first, and then your city.

  2. So what's the "wow" about someone being from London?
    These people regard this London as heaven. If someone actually said she is "born again" (i.e. from heaven) will this "wow!" be shouted?

  6. Nigeria and Nigerians with inferiority complex would attack her. I have seen an American born british claim America. Onye onwe ya juru afo has nothing to fear. Nigeria would continue to suffer complex till she gets it right as a nation

    1. Uriel is the one with the inferiority complex.
      Why didn't she say, I am a Nigerian but with British citizenship.
      Her parents are from Nigeria aren't they?
      If she gets involved in a scandal, same oyibo people will call her
      Nigerian.

      Delete
    2. Maybe she was born in Britain but she's not British. Because anyone who is British would know the difference between: I'm from London and I'm from the UK.
      UK doesn't give citizenship like USA if one of your parent isn't British.

    3. What are you on about 14:51.I worked with “Kenyan Indians”, and the girl wld say her parents are from Kenya but she’s from London cos she was born in London. What is the big deal?
      My husband is American,I am British, my kids were born in London and to them, they are British . We all have Nigerian passports too.

    4. Lol @ I am a Nigerian but with British Citizenship. I have never heard any one sat that though. Those who have dual citizenship claim whichever place they prefer or want.

  14. Hahaaaaa. But Nigeria has done nothing for her now

  15. Ah ah she's right now.
    That's the one she chose,some folks choose their Nigerian nationality over their birthplace which is British.Their choice.

    See eh, one secret in correct HR secret for cool firms,when filling their template,click British,enter your passport number(they will surely verify that)and add for languages Igbo,Hausa,Yoruba or whichever,you explain those during oral interview and parentage.

    You get employed fast and is referenced as an expatriate(package and miscellaneous).

    Stella Kork no mind them.

    1. XP but let's not even front.. Uriel's choice of nationality depends on who is asking..
      When she auditioned for BBN, she was Nigerian.
      Now on Quarantine Radio with Tory Lanez, she's from London.

      We know how shit works. 😊😊

    2. Okay Mama Love and Behold, what if I'm not British but have passport can I still claim it and put passport no? Hope I won't be cast Sha πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

    3. Perxian then she wasn't a British citizen, she just got her citizenship last year. So she's from London...

      Delete
    4. Perxian,she got cut off by the new immigrations laws of 1984 having been born after that year,it was no big deal before,it took years to grab the red.

      2.In this same country if you say Ajegunle-Lagos born and bred Musician Oritsefemi many will wrinkle their nose but when you say Ituku- Enugu born and bred musician Phyno people go wow wow,when in actual fact Phyno cannot hold a candle to Oritsefemi's stagecraft and Ituku cannot even compete with Ajegunle,forget hyping.

      Uriel says she has been through thick and thin,been put down in awkward places and ways least expected,then last year she gets her British citizenship you think she will not flaunt it?Oh common,it offers many fringes,perks in Platinum Card ranges in many discounted firms.
      Blacks respect tags,please.

      I have relations who are born in Achimota -
      Ghana,they work here as ghanaians with their Igbo names,travel the world without delays on nothing,they tell you hooha they are ghanaians from Achimota,go cry if you can,not their business.

      Wielding a British passport is a whole lot lot.

      Anony...you can,I have 2 siblings who are Spanish,they get renewals for their Nigerian passports but do not use them.
      If I see better space inside for instance Main One Cable, I file on their template as British,does't like foreign currrency.


      Sorry for the epistle.

    5. Anonymous 15:09, Please get your facts right before you comment. United Kingdom use to give citizenship. I was born in London in the year 1964. I have British and Nigerian nationality. Previously in the United Kingdom, if a child was born there, regardless of the parent's status, the child is classed as British by birth, the law was changed some years ago. So your comment about United Kingdom not been America is wrong to an extent. I got my british nationality by birth.

  22. I think she was granted her British citizenship last year so yeah let her claim London if she wants to. Personally I have italian citizenship and despite the fact that I came to Italy when I was only 5 years old I still consider myself Ghanaian and when people ask me where I'm from I tell them I'm ghanaian without even telling them that I have italian citizenship. I take pride in my roots but to each is own🀷🏾‍♀️
