Rick Ross who is popularly called “THE BOSS” has been savoring every single moment of his visit to Nigeria. The international rapper whose latest album “God Forgives but I Don’t” is no1 on the Billboard album charts , was in Lagos to headline the Summer jam fest on Friday.
What amazes me is that, no other international act has created such frenzy like the boss. The euphoria which greeted his arrival was amazing and in minutes, his arrival in Lasgidi was trending on social networking sites.
Is his successful collaboration with Psquare on “Onyinye” the reason for this? Whatever the reason, Ricky has found a new home in Nigeria which he now calls his homeland.
To buttress this, yesterday, the superstar was in Obalende shooting the video for his track. He was surrounded by locals who were overjoyed to be around him. He also bought out a whole grocery store and distributed the contents to the people who he referred to as Village.lol(Can you blame him)?
In a tweet he posted yesterday, it reads“Filming in the slums in Lagos. I just bought out the whole grocery store and gave it to the village.#MMG presence strong in our homeland”. You see, he already refers to Nigeria as his homeland. But, on a serious note, that store owner is one lucky person oo.
The boss interestingly indicated his interest in investing in the crude oil sector when he tweeted“Nigeria is rich with oil. Generational wealth.I need some.Some Rozay investment coming your way.#NICE”
He continued by tweeting “Officially joining the oil money gang” .I just hope he doesn’t mean cabal.lol
With these recent development,there is no contesting the fact that his visit has opened Nigeria to the world and whether we like it or not, it is time for the government to pay more attention to the entertainment sector .
Forget oil, entertainment is the future of Nigeria because that’s where the youth have found succor.Don’t we say the future of a country lies in the hands of the youth”?
On this lovely note, i say HUNH(in Rickross’s voice)Now, this is a real boss
