Nigerian Youtuber, Emdee Tiamiyu, has said that being real will hurt people.
The Youtuber had said in an interview with the British Broadcasting Corporation that many Nigerian students seeking admissions into schools in the United Kingdom were not looking for new qualifications, but rather to start a new life overseas.
However, speaking in an interview with media personality, Ifedayo Olarinde, aka Daddy Freeze, on Tuesday night shortly after his interview video with BBC went viral, the Youtuber said that he may have to find a balance between being real and being diplomatic.
In the viral video, Tiamiyu said that most of those who applied for schooling in the United Kingdom only considered it an alternative means to escape from Nigeria.
In response to criticism from his BBC interview, he stated, “The BBC man asked me yesterday, ‘If it is part-time for you, what if you do it full time?’, and I am like, I am not ready for full time.
“There is a future. I know that there are still many opportunities to do more great things. And I don’t know, I would have to find a balance between being real and being diplomatic. Because If you want to be real, you will offend people.”
