However, Buju grew up in Lagos during his early days. He eventually moved to Ogun state. Perhaps his growing up amongst the Yoruba ethnic group is the reason he is able to speak the Yoruba language. Nonetheless, Buju identifies with the people of Akwa Ibom, specifically the Nsit Ibom Local Government area.
