Wizkid & Tanzanian Singer Alikiba Almost Cancel Chris Brown Concert

untitled-1-524x350

Chris Brown headlined the Mombassa Rocks Festival in Kenya, but the concert didn’t go so smoothly.

According to reports from Kenya, there was a power scuffle between the show’s supporting acts, Nigeria’s Wizkid and Tanzania’s Alikiba.

The scuffle was allegedly over who would get to perform just before Chris Brown, with Wizkid wanting that honour because he was the bigger artiste.

Alikiba however felt he had a bigger fan base in Kenya, and demanded to perform last. After severe delays with push Brown’s time way past normal, Wizkid finally agreed to perform first.

Alikiba performed after Wizkid, but minutes into his performance, his microphone was disconnected as the organizers had to bring Brown on stage.

According to reports, he came back on stage after Brown had left to finish his set.

Drake Refuses To Pay Detail’s Medical Bills After Bodyguard Beatdown

392abdd000000578-3825503-image-a-16_1475768244839

Detroit-based producer Detail sued Drake after he got a beatdown by the rapper’s bodyguard, Chubbs and now the Toronto MC is refusing to pay a dime.

In June 2014, Detail arrived at Drake’s estate late one night to work, where he was confronted by his bodyguard Chubbs, who beat him up. Drake claims that the producer knew the dangers of showing up to his home unannounced adding that his security guard was only acting in self defense.

Detail a.k.a Noel Fisher filed a lawsuit against Drake, his company October’s Very Own (OVO SOUND) and his bodyguard Chubbs demanding they pay for his medical bills after allegedly suffering a broken jaw following the confrontation.

Drake replied the lawsuit with a self-defense argument, therefore saying he doesn’t owe Detail a dime even though the producer claims he was so badly hurt he couldn’t work for a year.

Detail says in his suit that the OVO boss offered him a job as an executive producer, but he didn’t want to be tied to one artiste so he rejected the offer, this led to a breakdown in their relationship. But then in June 2014, he was invited by the rapper to his Calabasas home to discuss the idea of working together again.

When he arrived at the home at about 2am, he immediately encountered Chubbs who he says punched him so hard that his jaw broke.

The Bible Tupac Shakur Read While In Prison Is Up For Sale

Memorabilia company, Moments In Time have announced that they are auctioning off the Bible that Tupac read while in Clinton Correctional Facility, New York.

The Auction house has The Life Recovery Bible, which they apparently obtained from a member of the rapper’s family. The rapper spent nine months as an inmate at the maximum security prison on sexual assault charges in 1995.

 

He signed his name along with his inmate number on the bible and if you recall, he gave the prison a shout out on his song “Hail Mary” rapping,“To my homeboys in Clinton Max doing their bid / Raise hell to this real shit and feel this.”

The bible is up for sale for $54,000. If the bible sells, which undoubtedly it will, the estate of Tupac Shakur will get the majority of the profits.
