During the interview, Emdee claimed that many Nigerians enter the UK under the guise of studying but actually have a hidden agenda to ‘japa’ and find better opportunities in the country.
He made this statement shortly before UK implemented a policy restricting foreign students from bringing their family members along for academic programs below the PhD level.
The interview didn’t go down well many Nigerians, who didn’t hesitate to drag him to filth for ‘exposing’ the well-kept secret of Nigerians. Some also opined that the video evidence will be used against Nigerians in the future and will make it difficult for Nigerians to migrate to the UK.
Reacting to the saga, former Big Brother Naija, Leo Da Silva, took to Twitter to defend Tiamiyu, arguing that it’s not his fault because UK would have implemented the policy with or without the interview.
He explained that he lived in the UK for 10 years and knows for a fact that UK authorities always clamp down on anything that will benefit other nationalities in the UK.
According to Leo DaSilva, UK only needed the interview with Emdee as PR so they won’t appear prejudice or racist.
He wrote in a series of tweets,
“I just want to point this out, this also happened to us in England a few years after in 2010. Conservatives changed many immigration laws for us.
The UK have done this constantly and they just needed this PR not to seem prejudice/racist.
He is not at fault at all.
We will eventually have to focus on developing Nigeria.
Emdee Tiamiyu is not at fault, it also happened to us in EN-
“Tiamuyu is not at fault at all. UK always clamp down on anything that will benefit other nationalities in the UK” Reality TV star, Leo Da Silva defends the UK-based Youtuber
Anything that will benefit other people from another country in the Uk, the Uk will always clamp down on it.
You can do your research.
They never really want any benefit for anyone asides their own people.
This is why I always advise Canada or America.”
