After stirring up excitement with his announcement about an upcoming Netflix series appearance, Michael Bassey has taken to social media once again to address a point of contention among fans.

In a recent post, the Sierra Leonean model responded to questions and discussions surrounding his claim of being the first Sierra Leonean on Netflix.

In his post, Bassey expressed his perspective with a touch of humor, writing, “My post about being the first SIERRA LEONEAN on Netflix!!!! you can’t compare me to Idris Elba, I was born and raised in Sierra Leone, I went to Saint Anthonyโ€™s boys’ primary school, the Sierra Leone Grammar School, and University of Sierra Leone Fourah Bay College. So when I say I’ll be the first Sierra Leonean on Netflix, you better respect that Lol. Idriss Elba na British man ๐Ÿ˜„๐Ÿ˜„๐Ÿ˜„ Lonta.”

This playful response comes in the wake of Bassey’s initial announcement that he will be making his debut appearance in an upcoming Netflix series, set to be released on November 30th.

With his light-hearted yet firm clarification, Bassey aims to underline his unique connection to Sierra Leone and his pride in representing his home country on a global platform.
