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).
“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 to.”
Reacting, Dabiri-Erewa described Lil Wayne as a “Nigerian brother”.
