Wale Meets Nigerian Family For First Time In New Documentary (VIDEO)

(AllHipHop News) Home was where the hatred was for the late Gil Scott Heron and where Wale . P. Diddy’s 24-hour music channel will debut its first ever original documentary, “Wale: I Am From” which follows the Maybach Music Group rapper on his trip to Africa to reconnect with his Nigerian roots.

For one week, REVOLT followed Wale as he met his Nigerian grandparents for the first time and how his busy music career created difficulties.

Back in November, Wale explained why he never visited his home country until 2013 during an interview with Nigerian radio station Beat FM Lagos:

I grew up poor. We lived in DC, in the projects. Getting a ticket to Nigeria on $20, 000 income yearly, to my family that wasn’t really… you know…like I was a 15 year old with a decent job, I’m not going to save up to go to Nigeria. That wasn’t what I was thinking when I was that age. And then I was in college and the money tight right then. And then I get this record deal when I dropped out of school, you’re running around so much you don’t even have time to see your own parents

The hour long original documentary premieries on January 20th at 10 p.m. EST on REVOLT channel. Check out the trailer for RevoltTV’s “Wale: I Am From” below:
