Davido’s Cousin Sina Rambo Throws Shade At Wizkid??? Wizzy Fans Put Him On Major Blast!



My goodness Wizkid fans are worse than Beyonce & Rihanna fans when it comes to defending their fave!

So here’s what happened! Last night Akon’s brother, Bu Thiam who manages Chris Brown & Wizkid, posted Wizkid’s album cover on his Instagram and captioned the pic, “The King of Nigeria @wizkidayo Album is in stores Now!!!”

Sina Rambo who is Davido‘s cousin & also an artiste on his label – HKN Music, must have found what Bu wrote about Wizkid very funny because he replied to the pic with an “LMAO”

And that’s when all hell broke loose as Wizzy fans abused him from here to the end of the earth!

I blame Solange for this! LOL!

Ever since that elevator fight the formerly untouchable Beyonce and Jay Z have not only become the butt of jokes but also media speculation that their marriage is practically O-V-E-R!

While out and about in Washington DC, Senegalese American singer Akon was accosted by TMZ cameras and he spoke about Bey and Jay’s marriage…according to TMZ,

Akon feels the mega-couple always presented their relationship to the public as more of a business than a real relationship. He says famous people need to be open with their fans about their relationships or else they invite the kind of rumors that have dogged Jay Z and Beyonce lately.

WTF! Akon & WizKid Allegedly Reject Dark Skinned Models In Favour Of Mixed Race Girls At Video Shoot In Ghana?!



Damn dark skinned black girls get no LOVE!

It is being alleged by a Ghanaian website that Akon & Wizkid rejected dark skinned black girls in preference for mixed race girls fro a video shoot in Ghana.

According to Fashion Ghana

At a recent video shoot in Ghana for an Akon and WizKid video, some Ghanaian models were called upon to participate by the directors a few days ahead of the shoot. The call was made presumably prior to Akon and Wizkid’s arrival in Ghana. A model reported that on the day of the shoot some girls were turned away as the agent informed them that “they now want half caste girls”.

“THEY”, most likely referring to WizKid, Akon and/or his music video producer, turning away a fleet of arrivals originally requested to attend by the model scout. In fact, the agent requested if the girls could help him seek light skinned girls because ‘THEY’ were so adamant on this request even on late notice.


Akon Says Polygamy Rules! “One Woman Can’t Satisfy A Man’s Every Need”. Do You Agree?



Akon is talking about the reason why he has multiple wives & even though he is a Muslim his reason doesn’t have a lot to do with religion.

TMZ caught up with the Senegalese American artiste yesterday at LAX & the singer who already has four wives said, “Women aren’t built to mate with more than one party … men are. At the end of the day as a male we are natural breeders by nature. We can’t even escape it if we wanted to.”

So Akon pretty much believes the idea of a man sleeping with one woman for the rest of his life is beyond ridiculous, and if women could just accept that, there would be far less domestic disputes.
