American rapper, Cardi B is already thinking of becoming a Nigerian after the US President, Donald Trump, ordered the killing of Iranian military commander, Qassem Soleimani.
Soleimani was killed on Thursday, January 2, 2020 by US forces in an air raid at Baghdad International Airport, Iraq.
The killing of the head of Iran’s elite Quds Force has generated a global conversation on social media, as many people argue that Trump’s decision is not just a threat to American citizens, but could also lead to World War III.
Cardi B is one of those who believe Trump’s decision to kill Soleimani has put Americans’ lives in danger.
She tweets, “Naaaaa these memes are fuckin but shit ain’t no joke ! Specially being from New York .Its sad this man is putting Americans live in danger.Dumbest move Trump did till date …I’m filing for my Nigerian citizenship.”
Since the news of Soleimani’s death broke, World War III has been one of the top trending topics on Twitter as tweeps discuss war with funny memes.
Reacting to the development, Cardi B describes the killing as the ‘dumbest move’, saying it’s sad that Trump is putting the lives of Americans in danger.
She added that she’s going to file for Nigerian citizenship.
The rapper further tweeted that she’s picking a tribe to belong to when she eventually becomes a Nigerian, leading fans to make different suggestions.
Cardi B’s love story with Nigeria began when she was in the country in December 2019 to headline Livespot X Festival.
The rapper got herself an indigenous name, Chioma B, and also sampled Nigerian Jollof and beer.
