Snoh Aalegra clarifies any misunderstandings regarding her nationality.
Snoh Aalegra, the Roc Nation singer, has finally succumbed to the vexing bi-weekly argument about her ethnicity, revealing the truth about her heritage once and for all.
Snoh’s ethnicity has been the subject of much speculation, especially as she continues to ascend in the R&B scene. People seem to have something to say about where she hails from every other week, therefore, as BIA did a few days ago, Snoh stood up and put an end to the debate, exposing her ethnic identity in a tweet.
“I’m simply witnessing the normal bi-weekly argument on Twitter regarding my ethnicity,” Snoh said on Twitter this week. “My background and bloodline is not a philosophical matter. I have real evidence for you all.” “FOR THE LAST TIME: I am 100% IRANIAN; I come from the south of Iran, where people have darker skin, and I was born and raised in Sweden as a second generation immigrant; I have no Swedish blood, but I consider myself Swedish because that is where I grew up.”
Snoh grew up in Enköping, Sweden, after being born in Uppsala. She went to Stockholm with her mother when her parents split.
Her third studio album, Temporary Highs in the Violet Skies, was recently published, and you can listen to it here.
