American Hip Hop star, Offset on Monday, paid tribute to his late nephew and colleague, Takeoff who passed away last month.
He took to microblogging site, Twitter and shared a throwback photo of the former Migos member while wishing him long life.
But what caught people’s attention about the picture was that Takeoff held a Nigerian flag over his head and this raised questions.
Offset did not state whether Takeoff is originally from Nigeria in his post, but the photo of his rapper friend with a green white green set the Nigerian Twitter space abuzz.
See the post:
In reaction, many Nigerian nationals wondered if his origin was traced to the West African nation.

@Solomon999_; I can see that Nigeria is actually well recognized outside but not well cherished inside. It’s all because of the corrupt government and officials holding the higher grounds and controlling the circulation and flow of things in the country.
In other news, a Chilean man who accidentally got paid 286 times his monthly salary has continued to evade arrest seven months after he disappeared.
The man had reportedly been expecting 500 000 pesos (N235K) as his salary in May 2022, but the company erroneously paid him 165 398 851 pesos (N77 million).
He wanted to return the money, but changed his mind after initially informing human resources of the mistake in his payment for the month.
He made a promise to his employers to refund the money but instead chose to resign and absconded, and is yet to be found till date.
The company he worked for, Consorcio Industrial de Alimentos (Cial) in the Santiago province of Chile, said the erroneous payment due to a clerical error of epic proportions.
It was gathered that upon inspecting their payroll records, Cial confirmed that the employee had been given 286 times his wages. Following this, they contacted the staff and asked him to return the money paid in excess.
The man reportedly agreed and said he would go to his local bank to request that the money he received be sent back to the originating account.
However, the company waited for the amount to hit its account, but never got a notification from the bank. The management tried to get in contact with the worker again, but the attempts were to no avail.
The employee later contacted the company, and claimed to have overslept on June 1st, adding that he would pay a visit to the bank that same day.
Shockingly, on June 2, he sent in his resignation and subsequently vanished from the face of the earth.
Local media reports that Cial took the matter to court in a bid to compel the employee to return the money but security agents are yet to find him.
