A Nigerian Senator has invited American rapper Kanye West to visit slave ports in Africa for an education on the slave trade according to a CNN report.
Kanye West is currently facing backlash for his slavery remark during an interview with TMZ where he said slavery was a “choice.” He said, “When you hear about slavery for 400 year. For 400 years ?! That sounds like a choice. You was there for 400 years and it’s all of y’all? It’s like we’re mentally in prison.”
Nigerian Senator Shehu Shagari, who represents Kaduna Central senatorial district, is popularly known for his vocal and critical views of the politics of the nation.
“If Kanye West thinks slavery was a choice,we will offer him a free ticket and tour guide to visit slave routes and camps in Badagry, Lagos; Ouida, Benin Republic; Ghana and Goree Island in Senegal to ‘experience the choices in chains’. Kanye defecated on the graves of victims.” Shehu said in a tweet.
