Yomi Gold, seems to be very happy about being granted US citizenship. Shortly after he posted a viral video that suggested that he got his US citizenship approved, the actor received lots of congratulatory messages from his fans and relations.
The actor also responded to some of the negative comments he received from some people after he became a US citizen, insinuating that he was running away from Nigeria due to the poor economic situation. He noted that he could relate with their views as their comments were based on the situation of the country.
“People will always talk, they are obviously talking like that because of the way the system is. Truth is everyone wants to live a very comfortable life. Everybody will continue to run away from Nigeria because of the bad situation. Not everyone has access to the right connections, big money and good jobs.
“An idle mind is the devil’s workshop; that is why in Nigeria, we always hear sad stories of crime. In the US for example, the government has been able to reduce the rate of crime by providing good jobs and basic social amenities,” he told Saturday Beats.
