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.

Norway has no history of colonialism and in fact was 'oppressed' (by Sweden) for a few hundred years till circa 1900. It is in a remote northern part of Europe and the climate is very cold. No sun for a couple months a year. There is no reason for African people to be there but for the powerful emotion of white guilt. But if you're a black man who can make it to Norge and survive the winter months, the generous state benefits and oodles of pale, pretty, wealthy, educated Nordic women looking for some 'flava' (see: white guilt), you're home free.

We blacks don't need any long back's permission to be from his sissy ass country. They need us to bred with their weak ass squalls. They cant even fight sun burn let alone fight malaria. Their genes are so weak. See how old they look at 45. Mo farah,
