Frank Artus defends his "I am from Ghana" statement made during an interview in Nigeria

Frank Artus

This question has been asked over and over, "why Frank Artus claimed Ghana instead of Liberia, during an interview in Nigeria, years back?”

Well, Frank Artus took the time to clarified what he meant.  In a Facebook comment, he wrote, "At that time I was living in Ghana and not Liberia. People grow up.  I'm a Liberia living in Ghana. And if I travel to Nigeria and was asked "where are you from? I will definitely say I'm from Ghana but if I'm also ask if I'm a Ghanaian then I can say no IAM A LIBERIAN. #HopeTheEnglishIsClear And so...does that mean I'm a Ghanaian.?? We all jus need to stop all of this, it's not right, we all go out there to seek greener pastures and with the help of God we make it and come back home to contribute to society than we are...something we all said abt our president today. Let's appreciate our own and stop hating, it won't help us. Take it as you wish. Anyhow I don't care.
I have given you stuffs to tlk and think about,I owe no single soul an explanation. It's controversy and it's part of my career bringing in more relevance. #Goodnight”
