The Duchess of Sussex Meghan Markle has revealed that she is 43 percent Nigerian and would love to dig deep to know which tribe she hails from.
Meghan, who was born to an American father and African American mother, was speaking during her weekly Spotify podcast and had actor Issa Rae, 37, and talk show host Ziwe, 30, to discuss black woman stereotype.
Meghan revealed that she is “43 per cent Nigerian” which she found out after taking a genealogy test.
“Oh, this is huge! Igbo, Yoruba, do we know?,” Ziwe, who is of Nigerian descent herself, asked.
Meghan replied: “So, I mean, I’m going to start to dig deeper into all of this because anyone that I’ve told, especially Nigerian women, are just like what!”
Ziwe added: “This is huge for our community. No, honestly, you do look like a Nigerian, you look like my aunt Uzo. So this is great.”
