American rapper/ Love and Hip Hop star PAPOSE, is Cameroonian 🇨🇲 by DNA.
According to HIPHOP DX,the Brooklyn New York-bred , who always assumed he was Liberian, discovered he’s actually from the West-Central African country of CAMEROON . More specifically, he hails from the musical tribe of Tikar.
Papoose and several of his Love & Hip Hop: New York co-stars recently participated in a special edition of the long-running reality show called Love & Hip Hop: Lineage To Legacy, which premiered on February 7. Using DNA samples collected by DNA Identity Expert Dr. Gina Paige, co-founder of African Ancestry, the show aimed to do a deep dive into the cast’s African roots.
“I feel like we function better when we know these things,” he explains to DX. “Certain foods that we eat that don’t agree with us, we shouldn’t be eating, but you have ancestors who walked these paths before us, certain remedies that we can have when we become ill that will help us more than the things that we’re forced here in these European countries. So, just learning your true history, you learn so many secrets, and I feel like it makes us stronger.”
