Goodbye Cardi? Popular female rap artist Cardi B may be calling Nigeria her new home after she publicly announced that she is planning to apply for citizenship amid the growing tensions between the United States and Iran.
In addition to wanting to leave the country, she allow bashed President Trump on Twitter just after the airstrike that killed terrorist General Qasem Soleimani,
“Naaaaa these memes are f—in [emojis] but s— ain’t no joke ! Specially being from New York,” she wrote, “Its sad this man is putting Americans live in danger. Dumbest move Trump did till date…I’m filing for my Nigerian citizenship.” (SIC)
Funny, I doubt she will enjoy living options over there after living her lavish lifestyle here.

Fox News reports:
Although it’s hard to tell if the singer is serious about fleeing the U.S. for fear of an attack by Iran, a Nigerian government official responded to the tweet, noting that she is welcome in the country.
“As one in charge of the Diaspora for Ngr, We can’t wait to receive you again. Our doors are open, sister,” wrote Abike Dabiri-Erewa, chair of the Nigerians In Diaspora Commission and a former member of the Nigeria Federal House of Representatives. “And you need to talk a walk through the Door of Return in Badagry. It’s an indescribable experience.”
The artist’s criticism of Trump comes amid her continued support of 2020 Democratic presidential candidate Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt. In addition to having a face-to-face interview with Sanders about issues like wages, she’s tweeted her support for the 78-year-old in the past.
