The award-winning rapper made this known during an interview in the United States of America. He was asked about the one place in the world that he would love to visit and he mentioned Nigeria and Egypt.

Well, 2020 is still very young and like the saying goes 'never say never' as Lil Wayne might pull a surprise concert on us. We know a lot of people are yet to recover from Cardi B's visit to Nigeria back in 2019.
