US hip-hop group Migos have come under fire after they labelled Nigeria a third world country where “the English wasn’t even that good”.
A video of the group speaking about their recent tour to Nigeria went viral this week following the comments they made.

“We were surprised (with the reception we got) because it’s a third world country and there’s a lot of struggle in the city. To see that first hand was amazing. And for them to come to the show and know everything (lyrics) word-for-word…
“They were looking, they paid attention to everything that was going on. They knew word-for-word and their English wasn’t even that good,” a member of the group said.
Angry fans took to social media to vent their frustration:
Why migos gotta do Nigeria like that 🙄😭😭😭

Migos and their comments on their experience in Nigeria is a reflection of how A LOT of Af Americans have little or no knowledge on Africa
