This is coming weeks after another American rapper, Cardi B declared that she is seeking for Nigerian citizenship following the killing of Iran’s Quds Force Commander, Gen. Soleimani in an airstrike that was ordered by US President, Donald Trump.
The rapper who recently performed in Nigeria took to her official Twitter page to make the announcement describing the move by Trump as ‘the dumbest”, stressing that he is putting American lives in danger, hence her decision to file for Nigerian citizenship.
