  • His nephew Onyekachi Apam ?… as in how? correct the typo joor. He is Onyekachi’s nephew not the other way.

    Onyekachi Apam is Lesley’s UNCLE and not his nephew.

    Lesley’s mom is Apam’s sister who moved to France to cook Nigerian meals for Apam when he was at Nice. That’s how Lesley ended up being born in France.

    BTW, even though this story might’ve lifted from some other outlet, a Nigerian media outlet should NOT be referring to Nigeria as “the West African nation”.
