Internatîonal stars chase Arîcan cîtîzenshîps
Grammy-wînnîng Cardî B (below)îs the latest star to seek cîtîzenshîp în Arîca, sharîng wîth ollowers on socîal medîa that she wîll file or Nîgerîan cîtîzenshîp. The sînger had just returned to the States rom a trîp to Nîgerîa and Ghana where she tweeted her desîre ollowîng the US aîrstrîke whîch kîlled Iranîan commander Qasem Soleîmanî. “It’s sad thîs man (Trump) îs puttîng Amerîcan lîves în danger. Dumbest move Trump dîd to date… I’m filîng or my Nîgerîan cîtîzenshîp,” she tweeted. She has asked ans to weîgh în on whether her Nîgerîan name should be Chîoma B or Cadîjat. Born Belcalîs Almanzar, wîth Aro-Carîbbean roots în Trînîdad and the
Domînîcan Republîc, ît’s not îmmedîately clear how the rapper mîght acquîre Nîgerîan cîtîzenshîp. Nevertheless, Cardî B ollows other stars searchîng or Arîcan documents încludîng Brîtîsh actor Idrîs Elba and Amerîcan rapper Ludacrîs. Ludacrîs acquîred hîs cîtîzenshîp ater marryîng a 33-year-old model wîth Amerîcan and Gabonese parents who grew up în Gabon. Idrîs Elba was granted a passport rom Sîerra Leone, hîs late ather’s bîrthplace. “I’m no stranger to Arîca: I’ve been în Arîca, I’ve made films în Arîca, and I’ve champîoned Arîca. But Sîerra Leone, ît’s a very dîferent eelîng because ît’s my parents’ home,” he saîd.

End o the road or Arîca’s rîchest woman?
Dark clouds are loomîng over Arîca’s rîchest woman, Isabel dos Santos (rîght), daughter o ormer Presîdent o Angola, José Eduardo dos Santos. She has been oicîally named as a suspect, by Angola’s Attorney General, în a crîmînal învestîgatîon înto grat and nepotîsm. Thîs ollows the publîcatîon o Luanda Leaks, an eîght-month învestîgatîon by medîa houses led by the Internatîonal Consortîum o Investîgatîve Journalîsts. They allege that her $2.2bn was amassed through nepotîsm and corruptîon whîle her ather was Presîdent. Accordîng to the învestîgatîon, Dos Santos benefited rom “extraordînary opportunîtîes aforded to her by the government o her ather, beore he stood
down as presîdent în September 2017.” At the tîme o goîng to press, she denîed all wrongdoîng but a banker, Nuno Rîbeîro da Cunha, împlîcated în the embezzlement and money-launderîng case agaînst Isabel dos Santos, was ound dead în Lîsbon, apparently havîng commîtted suîcîde. There have also been senîor resîgnatîons at law firms and consultancîes lînked to Dos Santos and her actîvîtîes.
