Like many African-Americans who want to discover their lineage, Porsha Williams decided to take an ancestry test and she’s happily sharing her results with the world.
Porsha celebrated Nigeria’s Independence Day with a post on Instagram while posing alongside her fiancé, Simon Guobadia, in a green, floor-length dress. In the second slide of the post she shared the results of her ancestry test with a caption that read;
“#SWIPE Happy Independence Day to Nigeria, my ancestral home🇳🇬🇳🇬🇳🇬💚 I want to announce that I am Officially Nigerian !!! I am 44% Nigerian 🇳🇬🌟 ESEOSA! #YorubaBride #EdoGroom”
Sure enough, after announcing her heritage Twitter users clowned Porsha and one wrote; “When I received my Ancestry and it said I was 40% Nigerian hunny I bought all kinds of flags and t-shirts!”
Porsha found out she was 44% Nigerian and she has the flag in her bio. I love this for her.

Porsha adding the Nigerian flag to her bio after her ancestry results came back is my kind of carrying on.

As previously reported this isn’t the first time that Porsha’s embraced her future husband’s lineage.
Simon Guobadia gave Porsha the Nigerian name of Eseosa Guobadia back in April which means “God’s Gift.”
Porsha told her 6.9 million followers that Simon had been “thinking of the right name” for her for months and after “hearing the name Eseosa” while in Lagos, Nigeria, he thought it was a perfect fit.
Porsha and Simon are planning to have three weddings; a “native law and custom”, a traditional wedding ceremony, and one more wedding to seal their love. Rumors have circulated that the ceremonies will begin around Thanksgiving weekend in Atlanta,GA but nothing has been confirmed.
While Porsha may be living her best life on cloud 9 with her ancestry results, some users on Black Twitter are not here for it.
Nigerians are more mad at Porsha Williams for saying that she's Nigerian than they are colonizer queens/monarchs/royals…🤭

Women will morph into anything for a man. We’re conditioned to take on their identity. I’ve done it, some of you have. Megan Good was a preacher’s wife. I wore a hijab, Porsha is Nigerian she was a beard before. We are trained to be male identified

I like Porsha so I’m a little biased lol
But yeah too many girls think they can “become Nigerian” just because they’re fucking or married to one.
But I don’t blame them, it’s the men feeding into it, letting them become honorary Nigerians by proxy. https://t.co/YUayBfoBf0
