LAGOS, Nigeria – Cardi B's announcement that she wants to seek Nigerian citizenship has set off a Twitter feud between her West African fans in friendly rivals Nigeria and Ghana.

The Grammy-winning rapper visited both countries last month on her African tour.

Her announcement in a tweet on Friday criticized the U.S. airstrike in Iraq that killed Iran's top commander and sent Middle East tensions soaring.

"Its sad this man is putting Americans live in danger. Dumbest move Trump did till date," wrote rapper. "I’m filing for my Nigerian citizenship."

Cardi B professed a deep affinity for Nigeria during her visit and is even asking fans to help pick a Nigerian name.
