Speaking of nationality being questioned, he said: “I saw some comments saying, are you not Canadian? In fact, because I was born in Hong Kong, so I am originally a Chinese.” “Actually, I have already applied to give up my Canadian citizenship.” Nicholas is the first artist to publicly announce that he has given up his other nationality. He believes that he has the responsibility to spread the good things of China to the world. He said: “Chinese spirit can be promoted.” He also believes that he has a strong sense of national responsibility in his heart.
