Fabolous finally ‘celebrates’ Kenya one month after his show in Nairobi
American hip hop artiste Fabolous has finally thanked his fans in Kenya for their love almost a month after his performance in Nairobi.
Fabolous, whose real name is John David Jackson, performed in Nairobi on August 10 at Sk8city.
The Into You (Tamia) singer captioned several video clips and pictures of his time in Kenya telling his fans that he was surprised by the love he received when he landed in the country.
“I wasn’t ready… for the amount of love, appreciation, & hospitality that Nairobi, Kenya showed me… From the time I landed, all thru my stay & til I boarded to fly back home… Kenya made me feel like I was FAMILY. Thank You to everyone who made this trip a much-needed good experience for me!PS – Idk if Kenya gets the tourism promo it deserves, but if you ever get the chance to go, YOU SHOULD !! 🇰🇪#Sk8City,” Fabolous said.
After his performance in Nairobi Fabolous was bashed by a section of netizens for blaming blurry photos that he shared on Africa’s ‘poor Wi-Fi connection’.
This was after he had earlier posted photos and videos he had taken in New York when one user poked fun at him.
“Whose Android took these?” he asked.
“Could be my WiFi, I am in Africa right now lol,” Fabolous responded.
His remarks did not go down well with Kenyans who reprimanded him for looking down upon Africa and Kenya in particular.
The rapper was reminded that the country had welcomed him with open arms and he ought to have shown some degree of respect to his fans.
Fabolous began from very humble beginnings in the underground hip-hop world and built a cult following for his style of music.
He had his breakthrough in 2001 with the hit song Can’t Deny It from his debut LP Ghetto Fabolous. The LP reached number three on the Billboard 200 chart and sold over 1.5 million copies by 2003.
