Many black entertainers are campaigning for black people to make Africa their home. Jidenna recently shared that after he was evicted from his rented Georgia mansion in 2017, he decided to make his way back to the Motherland. Famed radio host Ebro Darden has also been vocal about the topic, and when Cardi B heard the news that Donald Trump ordered the airstrike that killed Iranian military leader Qasem Soleimani, she said she was applying for citizenship in Nigeria.
