NEWS T.I. Goes to Africa … I AIN’T WORRIED ‘BOUT NO EBOLA
T.I. is either the ultimate entertainer, or dangerously naive — he’s touched down in Africa for a concert he says must go on … Ebola or no Ebola.
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.
