With a video of her jamming to Megan Thee Stallion's 'Big Ole Freak' floating across social media, it seems the viral nature of anything Nigerian that now takes pop culture by storm has hit the full-haired Top Dawg Entertainment (TDE) artist.

Grammy-nominated with her debut album, Ctrl, SZA was born Solana Imani Rowe. But over the past few days, her Instagram page, SZA now carries a Nigerian name, ‘Amarachi Chinonso.’

Both names are of Igbo origin. ‘Amarachi’ means ‘God’s grace’ while Chinonso means, ‘God is close.’

The artist is set to be on the official soundtrack for Game of Thrones Season Eight. Reports claim she will be on a song alongside The Weeknd and Travis Scott.
