Nigerian Government Says Lil Wayne Is Welcome To Visit Nigeria
The Nigerian government has constantly shown how interested they are in having people from other countries visit the country. The chairman of Nigerians in Diaspora Commission, Abike Dabiri, has further proven this in a recent tweet where she wrote that Lil Wayne is welcome to visit Nigeria anytime he wants in reaction to the video released by Lil Wayne saying he is 53% Nigerian.
Our Nigerian brother . Many doing their DNA and identifying their roots. We look forward to welcoming him home someday soon https://t.co/pSKluJhGmb

This tweet is a result of what was said by the African-American rapper, Lil Wayne who was recently a guest on the “Drink Champ” show that airs Revolt TV where he revealed that he is 53% Nigerian.
When asked by N.O.R.E why he mentioned Nigeria in the lyrics of one of his hit songs, the multiple Grammy award-winning rapper disclosed that he had an ancestry test conducted by a website he shared some of his details on.
However, this is not the first time Lil Wayne has shown an interest to visit Nigeria. Weeks ago, while playing “Never Ever Have I”, he was asked about the one place in the world that he would love to visit and he mentioned Nigeria and Egypt.
Furthermore, one of Lil Wayne’s signees, Nicki Minaj has also expressed a desire to visit Nigeria. Her interest in Nigeria may have been sparked by Cardi’s recent visit as the “Barbie Dripz” crooner said she loves the energy from the country.
