Cardi B searches for Nigerian name ahead of citizenship

The US rapper Cardi B has asked her fans to choose her new Nigerian name.

She has whittled it down to two options: Chioma B or Cadijat.

Her tweet has already been retweeted more than 10,000 times:

The Nigerian newspaper The Premium Times reports

that she was given the Nigerian name Chioma B during her first visit to Nigeria in December 2019, while it says Cadijat is the name being suggested by her Nigerian Muslim fans.

On 3 January she tweeted that she was filing for Nigerian Citizenship after US President Donald Trump ordered the assassination of of Iranian commander Qasem Soleimani.

President Trump said Soleimani was plotting “imminent” attacks on US and he was killed in a US drone strike in Baghdad on Friday.

The rapper said it was the “dumbest move” Mr Trump has ever made.

The killing has sharply increased regional tensions, with Iran threatening “severe revenge”.
