Meghan Markle dropped another bombshell in the last episode of her Archetypes podcast, revealing she is partly Nigerian. The Duchess of Sussex said she did a genealogy test, which found she is 43 percent Nigerian. The revelation sent her podcast guest Ziwe Fumudoh, who also happens to be Nigerian, jumping with joy.

After introducing Ziwe Fumudoh, a Nigerian-American comedian who hosts Showtime’s Ziwe, Meghan Markle said she “she was incredibly excited to sit down” with her to make a revelation. 

She said: “I just had my genealogy done a couple of years ago. 

Ms Fumudoh asked: “What are you?”

Meghan said: “43 percent Nigerian.”

Ms Fumudoh was visibly blown by the revelation, exclaiming “No way!” “Oh my gosh! Are you really serious?”

Meghan then said: “I’m going to start to dig deeper into all this because anyone that I’ve told especially Nigerian, women are just like this is huge for our community.”

Ms Fumudoh said Meghan being 43 percent Nigerian, according to the genealogy test she did, is “huge” for the Nigerian community.

“Honesty, you do look like a Nigerian,” she said, adding she looks like one of her aunts.

Meghan said: “Oh my god!”

The revelations about her lineage sparked a frenzy on Twitter among the Nigerian community, with royal enthusiast @Mrs_K_Suleiman tweeting: “Meghan has Nigerian blood in her! Wow wow I knew she was my in-law.”

In the sixth episode of the Archetypes podcast – meant to deconstruct labels that hold women back – Meghan tackles a label that is “often pinned” on Black women – “angry”. 

Meghan revealed that she felt “like a Black Woman” for the first time when she started dating Prince Harry and that “things really shifted” from then in another podcast episode with Mariah Carey.
