Why The American Rapper Lil Uzi Vert May Or May Not Be Ghanaian

Lil Uzi Vert, an American rapper, is all over GH Twitter because of this tweet:

The picture is from the rapper’s recent shoot with GQ magazine and in it, he’s seen wearing a jacket with the USA and Ghana flag around is neck

It makes sense that people think he’s just repping his countries, Ghana and the USA because why would you put a flag around your neck??

People also claim he definitely is Ghanaian because he has Adinkra symbol tattoos on his face.

According to the Body Art Guru, Lil Uzi has 4 adinkra symbols on his face. Three in the middle of his eyebrows

And one above his left eyebrow.

According to Body Art Guru, the rapper has admitted that he doesn’t have any familial connection to the Asante Tribe (Adrinka) from West Africa even though he has all these tattoos from the tribe on his face.

Now, back to the jacket, Lil Uzi Vert is merely wearing a jacket made by Virgil Ablorh.
