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.
