Cardi B Is Headed to Nigeria & Ghana This December

She'll be playing two shows in Lagos and Accra.

Cardi B will be touching down in Nigeria and Ghana to hold down two concerts on December 7 (Lagos) and December 8 (Accra).

"I got one more show in 2019 and that's in Africa," the rapper recently said, after stating that she wouldn't be performing for the rest of the year in America.

Carbi B will be performing for a two-day event called Livespot X Festival that takes place across Lagos and Accra. This will be her first time visiting either country, and Africa in general.

Talks about a Carbi B show in Nigeria started circulating in the last few years. It's good to see they've now fully solidified.

In other Cardi news, she recently opened up about how she revived female hip-hop and about people questioning if she's a black woman. The rapper also shot an interview video with US presidential candidate Bernie Sanders.

If you're looking to catch her in December, you can buy tickets for Cardi B's shows in Lagos and Accra at the Livespot X website.

Still from '28 jours'

Jahëna Louisin’s Debut Short Film, ‘28 jours,’ is an Homage to Black Fatherhood

Troubled by portrayal of Black fathers in mainstream media, the Haitian-Reunionese filmmaker set out to make a film about loss and humanity.

"Cinema Africa" is your guide to African film. Writer Ciku Kimeria is highlighting new movies and documentaries that tell fascinating stories or questioning prevailing narratives and occasionally returning to the classics that paved the way for a new generation of filmmakers.

28 jours (28 days) the debut short film from a Lome raised, Haitian-Reunionese filmmaker, Jahëna Louisin is the story of a widower and his eleven year old daughter going through an interesting stage in her transition to womanhood—her first period. As they grapple with the brutal loss of his wife and her mother, the two find themselves confronting this life-changing moment on their own.

On a call with the call with the first-time filmmaker hunkered down in Lome, Togo, we discuss her debut film that won the Togolese edition of the "7 jours pour 1" film award and was this year's official selection for an international fiction film at the largest North American film festival focusing on films from Africa and the diaspora, Vues D'Afrique in Canada.
