Nigerian rapper, Ice Prince has called on the African Union, AU, to merge Nigeria and Ghana into one country.
The rapper, on his Twitter page, suggested that the resultant country should be called ‘NigGha’.
He tweeted: “Dear AU (aka African Union) Please take my Ad-Vice: Its time to make Nigeria and Ghana one country for real.
“I suggest the ‘Federal Republic Of NigGha.”
It’s unclear what prompted his suggestion, but the rapper stirred reactions on social media following his suggestion.
Some Nigerians just like Ghanaians rejected the idea.
Here are some comments gathered on Twitter:
@Frimpong “No thank you IcePrince. We don’t want to inherit Nigeria’s power crisis and corruption.”
