There is furore in Ghana after American rapper Cardi B failed to meet local celebrities who had gathered at her hotel in the capital, Accra, on Sunday.
Prior to her performance at a Livespot X Festival in the city, videos of some local celebrities taking a swipe at Cardi B went viral amid claims she showed disrespect towards her hosts.
The American rapper, known in real life as Belcalis Marlenis Almánzar, has since said she was not aware that the meet and greet session was going ahead.
“I asked my booking agent do I have a meet and greet today and he said no.”
“I did not know I have a meet and greet... for that I apologise but then again it wasn’t my fault,” she said.
Twitter users in Ghana and Nigeria have been vocal about the incident, which is currently trending at number one in both countries.
The rapper performed in Nigeria before visiting Ghana, and some have used the opportunity to revive the friendly rivalry feud between the two nations:
Cardi B came to Nigeria and had so much fun with our celebrities.
Cardi B went to Ghana and they are forcing her to hang out their Instagram influencers.
Pride did not allow them call Don Jazzy to release Rema for them.#CardiBInAccra
