American rapper, Belcalis Marlenis Almánzar better known professionally as Cardi B, has taken to Twitter to give her opinion of the endemic underdevelopment in some third world countries.
She stated that although people are what make up a country, you can’t completely blame them for the ills of the land.
According to the 28-year-old, the people are willing to work hard and progress but are unfortunately governed by the wrong set of people.
In her words;
“When ya see third world countries or countries that can be more developed don’t blame the people of the country. The people are always willing to work and progress. Blame the government. There’s a lot of evil in this world. The biggest one is GREED”.
