Controversial American superstar rapper DaBaby landed in Lagos, Nigeria, yesterday in his first visit to the West African country.

The trip is being documented by the “Charlotte” rapper through his and his entourage’s respective Instagram Stories.

Twitter users have been downloading and sharing these Instagram stories on the social media platform over the past 24 hours.

"Dababy in Lagos and he bought pop-corn and gave the guy $100😂😂😂," shared @mosuuro.

In one of the viral clips, DaBaby can be seen riding around Lagos and buying some popcorn from a street vendor at a traffic light. DaBaby hands the vendor a $100 bill in exchange for a few packets of popcorn.

In the following stories, his security escort is seen asking the vendor for more packets as, I'd imagine, $100 is worth a lot more than four packets of popcorn.

Other videos late last night show DaBaby swarmed by a sea of people as he makes his way towards his security escort in the streets of Lagos before linking up with Davido.

DaBaby is rumoured to be in the country to shoot the music video for an unreleased song with the “Fall” hitmaker.

Last year, during an interview at the 2021 BET Awards, DaBaby revealed that he had a new single on the way featuring Davido and that the single would be shot in Nigeria.
