During her first visit to Africa, Cardi B made sure to carve out some time to give back to the less fortunate. Prior to her performance at the Livespot X Festival, Bardi stopped by an orphanage in Lagos, Nigeria on Saturday (Dec. 7) bearing gifts and plenty of supplies for those in need. 

"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," Cardi wrote on Instagram. "People like YALL MATTER!"

Music executive Brooklyn Johnny, who made the trip with Cardi, explained that they loaded up their convoy vehicles with as much food, water, and supplies as they could possibly hold when delivering it all to the local orphanage. "We spent our only free time in Nigeria shopping for children in need," he said. "We literally bought as much as the vehicles we had in our convoy could carry... Today was a good day."
