T.I. goes to Africa

Rap tycoon T.I. Harris flew to Tanzania to perform a concert in the Motherland on Friday. Sources tell gossip tabloid TMZ.com that T.I. was not afraid of contracting the deadly Ebola virus because he is as far away from the hot zones as possible.

T.I. goes to Africa

From TMZ:

Sources close to the situation tell TMZ ... T.I. landed in Tanzania on Friday to headline the Serengeti Fiesta this weekend -- and his management team insists there is no risk of an outbreak, since the country has yet to have had a single Ebola case.

It's true ... Tanzania's on the far east coast of Africa, while the hardest hit countries are in West Africa. It's kinda like canceling a trip to Maine because Ebola's in Dallas.

One not-so-fun fact for T.I. -- just last month an Oxford University study said Tanzania is one of the top 15 countries in Africa at risk for animal-to-human transmission of Ebola.

If T.I. does get worried ... we suggest crowd surfing the way Akon did 2 weeks ago in the Congo.

      What kind of ignorant shyt is this?! Kudos to TI for getting that money and giving them Tanzanian folk a good show. :clap:

      Not every country is afflicted with Ebola so come on with that. And if I didn't know any better, i'd say that these news outlets are trying to make it seem that every person of African descent may have the virus or some shyt and trying to paint a certain people as diseased and that their entire continent should be quarantined. :no:

      You know what's funny? they say Ebola has been around since 10/16/2000, with 71 suspected cases and 35 deaths. So why is the government acting like this is new? Is it because it's claiming more lives?

      Most Likely. And here's something my hubby and I joke about. This obsessed era with zombies, and the zombie apocalypse, people WANT to believe that this will happen, thus mass hysteria.
