American Rapper, Lil Wayne Proud Of Nigerian Roots
American rapper Dwayne Michael Carter Jr, known professionally as Lil Wayne has said that he is a Nigerian.
Lil Wayne disclosed this on Wednesday during his chat with hosts N.O.R.E. and DJ EFN as a guest on the “Drink Champ” show that airs on Revolt TV.
The rapper said ancestry test conducted by a website proved that he’s more Nigerian than American.
This is coming after the multiple Grammy award-winning rapper was asked why he mentioned Nigeria during a show titled “Never Ever Have I” where he was asked the countries he had never been to, but would love to visit and he mentioned Nigeria and Egypt.
He said, “Shout out to Nigeria, I did my 23 and me ancestry dot com and my shit came back like 53% Nigerian. Yea! Me and my mum need to have a talk (Laughter).”
This is not the first time he has expressed a desire to visit Nigeria after the likes of Nicki Minaj and other international music stars like Cardi B, Meghan Thee Stallion and Future’s December 2019 visits to the West African country.
He said, “I gat to go to Nigeria…I gat to go see that place
“I have never been to Nigeria. That is the place I would love to go.”
