Here are some pics of Jigga, he is with Kwara State governor, Bukola Saraki.
He was turbaned by the Emir of Ilorin, Alhaji Ibrahim Sulu Gambari!!!
As Mona told us, a street was also named after him..
Shawn ‘Jay-Z’ Carter Road….lol
I need to gather the Mazis and elders from my village so we can organize a Beyonce ‘Bee’ Knowles Close sharply! lol

    Where is all the ‘Ameircan’ coverage. Where is BET. For real, I can’t wait to hear his album and what he will say about Naija. I bet he will make his rounds soon on awon Letterman and Leno…can’t wait to hear what they will say about these pictures. But that’s wassup… he looks happy like he is genuinely enjoying himself but he must be sweating under all that. I wonder if he ate any fufu

    Jay gave an interview with Funk master flex of Hot 97, NY when he was in Ghana and said something about them giving him mohammed as a name and that he was shocked that cats who couldnt really speak English where rapping his songs! Can u imagine?

    Kingdom come Jays latest single was has leaked on the internet def jam officials are scrambling to find out who leaked it. In my opinion it was probably one or their interns or Jay himself that did jare! anyways, I just read the funniest thing on media that it was some african dude that stole the single fro his hotel and leaked it and that they went to a street vendor in brooklyn ny who has started selling copies!!..vbuhahahahhahahha

    People can fabricate!!
