Nigerian comedian and actor, Ushebebe, has reacted to the Duchess of Sussex, Meghan Markle that she is 43 percent Nigerian.
Meghan made the revelation on the latest episode of her podcast, Archetypes, titled ‘‘Upending the angry black woman myth”.
But in a video he posted online, Ushbebe said that he knows that if he goes for the test, he’d confirm that he is 96 percent American. He stated that the four percent Nigerian in him is stressing him.
Ushebebe urged the UK government to take into consideration the fact that British citizens are tracing their ancestry back to Nigeria.
Watch video below:
During a conversation with Senegalese-American actress, Issa Rae, Nigerian-American comedian, Ziwe Fumudoh and professor Emily Bernards, Meghan said; “I just had my genealogy done a couple of years ago“
The Duchess then proudly says; “I’m 43 per cent Nigerian”, to the shock of Ziwe who asked, “Are you serious? This is huge. Igbo, Yoruba, do we know?”
She responded; “I’m going to start to dig deeper into all of this because anyone that I’ve told, especially Nigerian women, are just like, what?”
