The Duchess of Sussex, Meghan Markle, has revealed that she is 43% Nigerian.
The former American actress made this known in the latest episode of her podcast, Archetypes, where she opened up about her genetic heritage and expressed a desire to know more about her roots.
Speaking with Senegalese-American actress and comedian Issa Rae, Nigerian-American comedian and writer Ziwe Fumudoh, and professor Emily Bernards, Meghnan said she took a genealogy test which revealed that she is 43% Nigerian.
“I just had my genealogy done a couple years ago. I’m 43% Nigerian, “she said.
Reacting to the revelation, Ziwe replied, “No way!”
A shocked Ziwe further asked, “Are you serious? This is huge. Igbo, Yoruba, do we know? “
“I’m going to start to dig deeper into all of this because anyone that I’ve told, especially Nigerian women, is just like, what?” Markel responded.
