Meet Top 5 Nigerian Celebrities Who Are Not ‘Real Nigerians’ But Born Abroad

Lifestyle News

By virtue of the fact that the underlisted celebs were born outside Nigeria, they have dual nationality. This means they are not fully Nigerians, unbeknownst to their legions of fans.

According to the TravelState website, the concept of dual nationality means that a person is a national of two countries at the same time. Each country has its own nationality laws based on its own policy. Persons may have dual nationality by automatic operation of different laws rather than by choice.

For example, a child born in a foreign country to U.S. national parents may be both a U.S. national and a national of the country of birth. Or, an individual having one nationality at birth may naturalize at a later date in another country and become a dual national. 

Now let’s look at these celebs;
