Haitian musician Wyclef Jean is proudly Naija and he is letting the world know this.
The 49-year-old Wyclef who recently revealed he is Nigerian decided to solidify his ancestry yesterday (14.04.19) by jumping on the viral #fvckyouchallenge which was originally done by Nigerian musician Kizz Daniel.
The ‘Sweetest Girl’ crooner impressed his fans for doing his own rendition of the challenge coupled up with his amazing vocals and the acknowledgment of his African roots saying that this was the “return of the Baba”.
The Afro-Haitian Grammy Award-winning artist who once ran for president in 2010 revealed on social media that his DNA test revealed that he is 100% Nigerian.
About 85% of Afro-Haitians are from Africa. While there are groups from Central Africa and the rest of West Africa, people from the Benin Kingdom and Yoruba were also transported as slaves to the Caribbean nation. In addition to this, a part of their culture is of the Igbo origin.
The #FvckYouChallenge is scaling the heights from Africa to the world with many top African artists having jumped in to try their hand at the hit song. As reported by The Sauce, some of the Kenyan artists who have done covers of the song include Khaligraph Jones, Victoria Kimani, and Kagwe Mungai.
