In a recent post on his social media platform, American rapper Rick Ross expressed his desire to highlight Nigerian culture and its remarkable artists, starting with President Tinubu.

He emphasized his intention to spread love and appreciation for the culture and its talents, stating, “Rozay just wants to show love and bring attention to the culture and its amazing artists.”

This isn’t the first instance of Rick Ross demonstrating his affection for Nigeria. Just weeks prior, he stirred excitement within the Nigerian music scene by acknowledging controversial singer Portable and other African artists’ contributions to the industry. Through his social media channels, Rick Ross expressed admiration for African artists, their culture, and music, singling out Portable, Odumodublvck, and Uncle Waffles, among others.

Upon receiving the recognition from Rick Ross, Portable reciprocated the appreciation on his Instagram page, expressing gratitude and affection towards the rapper.

Rick Ross’s connection with Nigeria dates back to 2012 when he first visited the country. In 2022, he returned for two primary reasons, marking his presence alongside notable figures in the Nigerian music industry such as Davido, Tiwa Savage, Mayorkun, and DJ Obi, among others, for a memorable event at Eko Hotel & Suites.

However, his visit sparked controversy within the industry, with rappers MI Abaga and YCEE voicing their discontent over perceived discrimination against Nigerian rappers. MI Abaga recalled his own experience of being denied the opportunity to meet Rick Ross face-to-face despite an invitation, echoing a similar incident during his encounter with Jay Z, Rihanna, and Usher in 2008.

In response, CDQ shed light on the selection process for the event, suggesting that invitations were extended based on perceived relevance and merit. He emphasized the importance of recognizing God’s grace regardless of status as a local or English rapper, indicating that the organizers invited rappers they deemed suitable for the occasion.
