Fresh off his highly anticipated KOD album release, multi-platinum selling rapper J. Cole was in Nigeria on Friday for the Castle Light Unlocks concert where he was the headline performer.

The heavily patronized event which took place at the Eko Hotels and Suites in Lagos had a rather bizarre aftermath leaving a sour taste in the mouths of some Nigerians.

A video of his performance posted on the Instagram page of popular rap platform WorldStarHipHop apparently caught the attention of a section of Americans who passed some rather insensitive comments about the West African nation.

Some Nigerians did not take it lightly and clapped back.

Take a look at some of the reactions on social media and share with us your thoughts. Was it just mere trolling or sheer ignorance? On a broader perspective, do you think some Americans including African-Americans have skewed knowledge about Africa in general?
