    No tatts.
    No heavy chains.
    No posts with money to the chin.
    Flaws? Yes
    Shortcomings? Yes
    Heroes? Yes
    But most importantly, black legends.
    These are the true meaning of success in the entertainment industry.

      What you on about? Puffy’s got tats and loves big chains and jewelry – though he does know how to dress down when appropriate. He can be pretty flamboyant. And Jay also has a tat on his ring finger.

    Can you imagine bill gate and Warren buffet make a shot a video and blogs call it white excellence. I mean everybody will scream racism. I think it’s time blacks start seeing there self as equal at to white people and stop making them selfs as a victim and inferor to white people. This use to be African Americans thing which is understandable but now it’s spreading to Africa. The psychological effect of this will take Generations to erase. If you want to praise this two men praise them but it does not have to be about race or black this or black that.

      Before leaving for Uni in America I used to think like you and I would have agreed whole heartedly
      But one thing West Africans take for granted is the abundance of role models we have access to. We live in countries like Nigeria and Ghana that are largely black in population. All if not most of the politicians, businessmen, lawyers, doctors, teachers, nurses, engineers you know are black. All the artisans, athletes, entertainers and menial workers are also black. So for us it is quite easy to visualise or imagine the possibility of you yourself being any of those things.

      With African Americans, many of them live in communities were such role models aren’t readily available to them. Black Excellence is necessary to bridge that gap. It is the reason why movies like Hidden Figures are needed. As at now a lot of African Americans in the ‘hood’ aspire for careers in just entertainment and sports. Hashtags like Black Excellence are often used to broaden that focus.

      White people do not need White Excellence because implicitly excellence is often falsely perceived to be white in these parts of the world.. In everything context matters, that is why we cannot equate the implications and effect of hashtagging black excellence to that of white excellence

      seconded. i think this is uncalled for. like the black race needs more athletes and musicians. what we need are engineers, scientists, people that can change the world for good.

    These two are the stem of problems within the African American community. You see how Bellanaija labelled them as building an empire for themselves. That’s the black man’s mentality. Build it for your damn self not your community but let me tell you the effect of building it yourself not your community. Leaving your community behind and building for your damn self will someday turn your community against you E.G what we see in Nigeria today where people are gunning for politicians relatives to kidnap and make money off of.. No hate to you Jay and diddy and i must say they’re very good capitalist who’s capitalized on the “American Dream” but at the same time, these two doesn’t care what happens in their community that’s even if they still have interest in the communities they grew up. Jay has a scholarship scheme through his mother where he gives high school students scholarships to college but why wait till College to impact their lives and what next after college? These guys sponsor music that destroy their communities. Gunz, drugs, Pimps etal. They epitomize the cancer in the African American Society as much as you think they’re success stories. I’m not taking away the fact that they’re moguls off of that. Look at Mark Zuckerberg, Evan Spiegl, Jeff Besos etc. These guys know what communities should be like and have used their created platforms to strengthen their communities. They have amazing projects that impact kids growing up in their communities through grassroots now multiply Jay X Diddy by 100 gives you jeff Besos and you’d barely see these guys gloating on their success.
