US Hip-Hop Group Migos, under Fire for Labelling Nigeria a 3rd World Country
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 because of 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…

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— tai the butterfly (@Taiwo_Tweets) April 25, 2017
Some went as far as to label the group as hypocrites for “not being able to speak English themselves”.
