The bold printed Crew neck shirts


If one thing in this world is for certain it’s that Kim and Kanye really love their luxury cars – they have Lambos, Ferraris, Benzs, and  a super sick Rolls Royce Phantom. It’s straight blacked out, just like Kanye’s leather pants. For these two young love birds it’s all about the bling – we know they love private planes, champagne, high fashion, and super expensive cars. For the globetrotting couple sometimes it is nice to just hang out at home and do normal people things – like driving around, shopping, and enjoying the California sun.
While the rumors have been floating for the past month about Kim and Kanye moving in together, but those reports have not been confirmed. But it is true that they have been inseparable for the past 3 months – they either spend time in New York City at Kanye’s place or Kim or Kanye’s place in LA. It is only a matter of time before the two move in together and then get married and then have babies. Okay okay, maybe we are getting ahead of ourselves – but these two are seriously in it to win. Well, it was just a normal Saturday in Los Angeles yesterday and once again Kim and Kanye were balling out – check out the pics oh and Kim’s super sweet shoes. Kanye is once again in his trademark leather pants and Kim is wearing white. Do these two wear any color anymore – it’s all black and white these days. Too cool for color…

The “African Queen” star  and Nigeria’s top artist 2Face idibia paid   a surprise visit to the Housemates this afternoon.As it is well known that Biggie is full of surprises so did he  drop this one to his residents.
The Housemates were chilling  in their normal life going about their daily routine and from the storeroom there came  a grey suited bold guy who is famous at least to every African  who loves Music.
All Housemates were happy but we can’t avoid talking about Jannette‘s reaction. The Ugandan babe couldn’t contain  her excitement as she jumped onto the singer as a sign of welcome . She remained glued in his chest for some minutes leaving other Housemates just staring at her.
After Jannette was done a  while later, the rest of the Housemates had to say ‘Hi’ and welcome the star to their House. Housemates kept smiling but Jannette  couldn’t believe that she was next to one of Africa’s best artists.
The Housemates later took their visitor to their garden  to show him their vegetables. The hosts and their visitor later talked about music with every one sharing what they knew and want to do  in the music industry.
Won’t Jannette and Prezzo ask for a collabo with 2face?
