Rachel Dolezal Gives Herself 'West African' Name, Black People Still Won't Claim Her

In yet another attempt to affirm her "blackness," transracial troll aka, Rachel Dolezal, has legally given herself a "West African" name.

Rachel Dolezal is officially the troll of the century.


Since she can't seem to go a week without doing or saying something completely out of fucking pocket, the transracial advocate decided to grant herself a new name.

According to Daily Mail, she has legally changed her name to  Nkechi Amare Diallo.

That is correct. The counterfeit black woman has now adopted a counterfeit "West African" name, which she seems to have picked out from a book entitled "How to Fail at Life and Get Black People to Never Fuck With You."

Nkechi is an Igbo name short for Nkechinyere that means "gift of God," which given its meaning, is clearly not the name that God intended for her.

Diallo, is a Fulani surname, meaning "bold"—which, I guess I'll let her have considering how damn brave this woman is to think she can just adopt whichever "Pan-West African" name she pleases.

She is currently being "bodied" by folks on Twitter, because that's what her ass gets.

I don't know how many different ways black people can tell this woman that she WILL NEVER PROSPER. But, who knows, maybe if we say it in Igbo or Fulani, homegirl will understand.

Reekado Banks Recalls The Carnage of The #EndSARS Protests In Single 'Ozumba Mbadiwe'

The Nigerian singer pays his respects to those lost during last year's #EndSARS protests.

Nigerian singer and songwriter Reekado Banks is back with a track that is as socially important as it is a banger. It seems fitting for the singer's first solo release of the year to be a tribute to his fellow countrypeople fighting for a country that they all wish to live in. The 27-year-old Afrobeats crooner has returned with endearing track 'Ozumba Mbadiwe', honoring the one-year anniversary of the #EndSARS protests that saw the Nigerian government authorize an onslaught of attacks on Nigerian citizens for their anti-government demonstrations.

The protests took the world by storm, additionally because the Nigerian government insists that none of the police brutality happened. In an attempt to gaslight the globe, Nigerian officials have come out to hoards to deny any and all accusations of unlawfully killing peaceful protesters. Banks mentions the absurd denials in the track, singing "October 20, 2020 something happened with the government, they think say we forget," in the second verse. Reekado's reflective lyrics blend smoothly and are supported by the upbeat, effortless Afrobeat rhythm.

In another reflective shoutout to his home, 'Ozumba Mbadiwe' is named after a popular expressway on Lagos Island that leads to the infamous Lekki Toll Gate where protesters were shot at, traumatized, and murdered. Although packed with conscious references, the P.Priime produced track is a perfect amalgamation of the talents that Reekado Banks has to offer; a wispy opening verse, a hook to kill, and an ethereal aura to mark this as a song as a hit. On "Ozumba Mbadiwe," all the elements align for Reekado's signature unsinkable sound to take flight.
