UK based Youtuber, Tiamiyu  Apologises Over Offensive BBC Interview  Against Nigerians 

Nigerian Youtuber, Emdee Tiamiyu, has apologized over his comment about Nigerian students studying in the United Kingdom in an interview with the British Broadcasting Corporation.

Recall that the Youtuber in his interview had said that many of Nigerians were not looking for new qualifications, but to start a new life abroad.

Tiamiyu’s interview with the BBC surfaced online following the introduction of the new immigration rules that restrict Nigerian students, and others studying in the UK, from bringing their families as dependents, except under specific circumstances.

However, following backlash from the interview, the Youtuber has made a public apology in a video he shared on his YouTube account on Wednesday.

Speaking in the video, Tiamiyu apologized, saying that he granted the interview to speak on the challenges facing the black community.

“I am doing this from the reflections and the truthfulness of my heart that you have seen in the interview/ news feature. Please, I am sorry for any inconvenience this may have caused you.

“If what you have seen being circulated has made you uncomfortable in any way at all, I am sorry, deeply and sincerely sorry.

“And why do I say sorry, because for whatever pain that you feel, I feel even more, because if I meet you in person, if we were able to sit in the same space, probably engage, there is nothing in my heart for you other than love, progress and positive support. People who know me in the world know that this is what I have got.

“There is no other motivation than to grant an interview to speak on the challenges that we genuinely face as a black community back at home and also in the UK.” He said.

 Emdee Tiamiyu went to UK in September 2022. He entered the UK with same dependent route on September  2022.  Less than 9 months after he entered UK, he closed the boarder against his kinsmen and lineage with his mouth.
