‘Money’ singer, American rapper, songwriter, television personality, and actress Belcalis Marlenis Almánzar, known professionally as Cardi B, is set to visit Africa for the second time.
This time it is South Africa the social media sensation and mum of 1 is heading for a concert, as tickets are already selling out fast, to the point of crashing a ticketing site. She even urged South Africans to teach her about their country through their comments.
Fans have since reacted on twitter, expressing utmost pleasure at Cardi B retaining her Nigerian given name Chioma B, even though South Africans want her to change the name to Khanyi B, we all know who the Giant of Africa is, so no controversy in this case.
SOUTH AFRICA !! Chioma B is coming !!!!….Teach me more bout your country in the comments ❤️❤️❤️ https://t.co/vC9m3h7vNz

The 27-year-old singer married to Offset during her first trip to Africa, documented her trip to Nigeria and one thing is for sure – it’s one that she will never forget.
The singer was in Nigeria’s capital city where she took the stage at Livespot X Festival to perform before heading for her next stop in Ghana.
Born in Manhattan and raised in The Bronx, New York City, Cardi became an internet celebrity after several of her posts and videos went viral on Vine and Instagram.
