US rapper Lil Wayne has revealed that he is 53% Nigerian, citing an ancestry test result.

Soon after revealing this, the rapper has been invited to visit Nigeria and he says he intends doing so.

Wayne told Revolt TV in an interview that he took an ancestry test which revealed his Nigerian identity.

Many African Americans continue to trace their roots to Africa by taking ancestry tests.

This year popular female US rapper Cardi B also asked her fans to choose her new Nigerian name.

The rapper had the option of picking the name Chioma B or Cadijat but appeared to be in need of a helping hand to settle on one of the two names.

She wrote on Twitter that “Let’s settle this ones and for all CHIOMA B Or Cadijat”.
