Award-winning producer and Director, Imoh Umoren has counteracted a Twitter user who claimed nothing good comes out of being an African.
According to the Twitter user, a lot of disadvantages come with being birth in Africa. He started as being born in Africa, life generally has a leading-edge so one has to struggle to equalize.
“Once you’re born in Africa life is automatically leading you 1-0. If you’re not educated 2-0, if your parents don’t have money it’s 3-0 & If you don’t have connections that’s 4-0. At this point, you are left with no option but to hustle every day in order to equalize.” The user wrote.
Reacting to the statement, Umoren stood against such a claim for it’s not entirely true. According to the filmmaker, such a life scenery happens no matter the country one lives in.
He also urged everyone to travel far and wide and not just to fancy places, because poverty abounds everywhere.
