American rapper Cardi B has visited a motherless home in Lekki, Lagos, with tons of gifts, bought from a Nigerian supermarket, hours before performing at Livespot X Festival on Saturday night.

The singer, who said in a live video on Saturday morning that she was enjoying Lagos, posted photographs of the visit on her Instagram page, with the caption: “Gotta thank the ladies and the gentlemen that nurtured these kids that need just a little bit of more love and protection and gear them up for a better place, destiny and future. People like YALL MATTER!
