Rwandan social media erupted with speculation that American singer Beyoncé’s husband, rapper Jay-Z, could have roots in Rwanda following the release of her latest album, "The Lion King: The Gift".
In the song "Mood 4 Eva" the singer’s lyrics seems to insinuate that her “baby father” has a bloodline in Rwanda, The New Times reported.
“I'm so unbothered, I'm so unbothered. Y'all be so pressed while I'm raisin' daughters. Sons of empires, y'all make me chuckle. Stay in your struggle, crystal blue water. Piña colada-in', you stay Ramada Inn. My baby father, bloodline Rwanda."
“The first billionaire rapper in the world is from Rwanda … Jay-Z”, tweeted Mercello Chuks Kelechi, while Robert Niyirora joked that in Jay-Z, Rwanda now has a billionaire.
