Nico & Vinz

'Am I Wrong' Singers ...

Yes, We're Black AND Norwegian

EXCLUSIVE

072314_nico_and_vinz_launchNico & Vinz have one of the hottest songs this summer with "Am I Wrong" ... but most of their fans are probably DEAD wrong -- 'cause they don't realize the guys are from Norway, and they're Black! 

We ran into the duo in NYC yesterday, and they said they get double-takes all the time -- but the guys (both born in Oslo) want America to know ... it's okay ... there REALLY are black people in Norway. Lots of 'em.

Nico and Vinz are pretty charismatic in this clip, but what's disappointing is their taste in summer anthems. We asked 'em to name their faves -- and one of 'em is ... well, let's just say their hit is MUCH better.

I am from Norway and at one time it was 99% white. I can confirm that this has changed drastically over the last 20 years.
Btw, so have the instances of random and violent crime, drug abuse and denigrated neighborhoods.
But that must be a coincidence.

There are no black people in Norway. Only excessively dark-skinned white folks.

There are black people all over Europe. Where do you think the africans that keep on crossing the Mediterranean go ? I'm pretty sure Europe will eventually be all black and muslim.

Wow, Blacks are seriously EVERYWHERE!! I remember I went to France when I was younger and there were black everywhere! I was like, "Am I really in France??" lol.. Next thing you know I'll be in Iceland and Antarctica and they'll be Black people all over the place! lol.. But I am pretty surprise Norway has a lot of black people, just like I was surprised Russia has a lot of black people.
