A Nigerian senator has invited American rapper Kanye West to visit slave ports in Africa for an education on the slave trade.
Kanye West is facing immense criticism following his remarks during an interview with TMZ live this week in Los Angeles, where he said the slave trade was a “choice”.
The musician opened up about his mental health, his family, and his art during the show. He also said this about slavery, “When you hear about slavery for 400 years … For 400 years? That sounds like a choice.”
Nigeria’s vocal lawmaker Shehu Sani took a dig at West on Friday saying the musician’s statements on transatlantic slave trade was a slight on its victims.
“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.
The lawmaker was referring to relics in the coast of West Africa where people were enslaved and sold to the Americas.
A Detroit based radio station on Thursday said it was pulling off the rapper’s songs following his comments.
West, who is not new to controversy tried to clarify his statements Tuesday amidst mounting backlash.
“[T]o make myself clear. Of course I know that slaves did not get shackled and put on a boat by free will. My point is for us to have stayed in that position even though the numbers were on our side means that we were mentally enslaved,” West said in a tweet.
The rapper said he was being attacked “for presenting new ideas.”

Savage Trap Queen
Blue film is big business in Nigeria despite not being popular. P*rn artistes have been constantly bad-mouthed by the general public.
Most of the p*rn actors in Nigeria wear masks to conceal their faces to protect their identities. One of the daring adult film actors in Nigeria identified as Savage Trap Queen has summoned courage to speak to reporters about the goings-on in the p*rn industry in Nigeria.
Savage Trap Queen has been into the business of acting p*rn since October, 2017 and she regularly makes about N100,000 from every film she shoots.
The slim lady who is also a model explained that she has been attacked heavily that by critics to the extent that the crown which she bagged in the course of finishing as first runner-up for Face of Africa beauty pageant was taken from her. They felt it wasn’t appropriate for a beauty queen to be acting p*rn.
She has refused to be deterred by the absence of her crown as she has continued in her life of trade.
“There is a difference between prostitution and blue film. Prostitution involves straight s*x and money p*rn is more of acting, it is not real” she said.
Despite the fact that blue film is being frowned at publicly, several people still watch it in their private spaces.
Savage Trap Queen who claims her mother is comfortable with her work has over 20,000 followers on Instagram where she tease them with her seductive contents. She added that she has tested negative to the dreaded HIV.
