US Rapper Ludacris Becomes Gabonese Citizen

By Published January 08, 2020

American rapper, Ludacris, whose real name is Christopher Brian Bridges celebrated Christmas and New Year in Gabon, where he received citizenship.

In a Twitter post, Ludacris is seen in a video holding up his Gabonese passport and confirming his mother and two daughters also obtained the citizenship of the small, oil-rich Central African nation where his wife Eudoxie Mbouguiengue hails from.

In recent years, a number African-American celebrities have received African citizenship or travelled to Africa to trace their roots.

Actor and producer Samuel L Jackson also received a Gabonese passport in August 2019 after he was hosted by President Ali Bongo.

In November 2019, Ghana held a mass ceremony in which 126 African-Americans and Afro-Caribbeans took Ghanaian nationality as part of the country's "Year of Return" marking 400 years since the arrival of the first enslaved Africans in North America.
