Getting to know a new girlfriend’s family is challenging in any relationship. But on the latest episode of Rob & Chyna, Rob Kardashian truly had his hands full with meeting fiancée Blac Chyna‘s huge brood back in her hometown of Washington, D.C.
Though Rob, 29, initially didn’t want to go on the Independence Day trip, Chyna eventually wore him down into agreement. And it’s a good thing he got on board.
“If Rob doesn’t go, this could be a make or break in our relationship,” she huffed to the cameras.
After arriving in the nation’s capital, Chyna, 28, immediately threw Rob into the deep end with a family dinner involving both her parents, bitter nemeses who hadn’t spoken in more than a decade.
In another bizarre twist, Chyna’s outspoken mom, Tokyo Toni, had never even met any of Chyna’s 11 half-siblings before the group outing. (Only three, Camille, Brittany and Eric Jr., made the dinner.)
Beforehand, Chyna prayed that her mother, infamous for her online fights, would behave.
“She’s known for not giving two f***s,” the model admitted. “I’m just hoping she can keep it together and we can have a good dinner.”
Of course, Toni was immediately offended upon learning that sisters Chyna, Camille and b were all born within five months of each other. Nearly three decades later, the secret was out about her “player” ex.
“I’m starting to think you have a little attitude problem,” Chyna’s once troubled dad, Eric Sr., told Toni, adding fuel to the fire.
Toni then fled to the bathroom.
“I don’t f*** with him!” she told a concerned Chyna.
Fortunately, Toni returned to the table and remained calm for the rest of the meal.
In another unorthodox family tradition, the entire clan headed for a strip club called Sensationals after dinner.
While Eric Sr. stuffed dollar bills into a stripper’s panties, Toni twerked near the stage. Peace was finally restored after a decades-long feud.
So, how did recluse Rob cope with the chaos?
He was actually the happiest Kardashian fans had seen him in years.
“I definitely felt comfortable,” he told the cameras. “Throwing myself in uncomfortable situations is what I have to do to be happy. I’m realizing that not everyone is judging me.”
Chyna was relieved that her man mixed well with her family.
“I’m exited that Rob is out and about and I hope we can keep this up when we get back to LA.,” she dared to dream.
There was one teensy bump when Toni confronted Rob about his trust issues with Chyna.
“You can’t do what you’re doing,” she said. “You’re going to ruin it!”
Rwanda ban Burundi,s music star ahead of annual festival
Burundian musician Jean Pierre Nimbona, popularly known as Kidum, has told the BBC he is confused by Rwanda’s decision to ban him from playing at the upcoming Kigali Jazz Fusion festival.
Kidum is one of Burundi’s biggest music stars and has performed in Rwanda for the past 16 years.
But a police official phoned the musician’s manager to warn that he would only be allowed to make private visits to Rwanda.
“[My manager was told] Kidum is not supposed to perform, tell him to leave. If he comes for private visits fine, but no performances,” the musician told BBC’s Focus on Africa radio programme.
The mayor of Rwanda’s capital said that in this instance permission had not been sought from the authorities for him to perform at the festival in Kigali.
Kidum was a leading peace activist during Burundi’s civil war between 1993 and 2003 and used his songs to call for reconciliation.
The 44-year-old musician said he had never had problems with Rwandan authorities until recently when three of his shows were cancelled at the last minute – including one in December 2018.
That month Burundi had banned Meddy, a musician who is half-Burundian, half-Rwandan, from performing in the main city of Bujumbura.
Kidum said he was unsure if the diplomatic tensions between Burundi and Rwanda had influenced his ban.
“I don’t know, I don’t have any evidence about that. And if there was politics, I’m not a player in politics, I’m just a freelance musician based in Nairobi,” he said.
He said he would not challenge the ban: “There’s nothing I can do, I just wait until maybe the decision is changed some day.
“It’s similar to a family house and you are denied entry… so you just have to wait maybe until the head of the family decides otherwise.”
A new video to create the awareness of AIDS unleashed on freddie mercury’s 73rd birthday
Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome(AIDS) is a serious disease that the government has been fighting to mitigate, a new measure to educate people has been unleashed through animation video on thursday marking Freddie Mercury’s 73rd birthday.
British singer, Freddie Mercury is a songwriter and lead vocalist of the rock band Queen died in 1991 aged 45 due to complications from AIDS.
The four-minute video clip released by Universal Music Group (UMG) accompanies the flamboyant singer’s 1985 track “Love Me Like There’s No Tomorrow”. The tale of the two white blood cells, one of which is infected with the virus, depicts the power of love over fear and ignorance.
“We wanted to tell a story that was relevant to Freddie’s life, but not explicitly about him,” said the directors Esteban Bravo and Beth David in a statement.
Taking a more “microscopic” perspective allows for a more nuanced exploration of the struggles those with HIV/AIDS face in their personal relationships and in society, they added.
“The LGBT+ community fought for years for the right to proper research and healthcare, and because of that fight, millions of lives have been saved. We wanted to celebrate that victory,” Bravo and David said.
The video is also meant as a tribute to the work of the Mercury Phoenix Trust, set up after Mercury’s death to help support projects worldwide in the fight against HIV and AIDS.
The song “Love Me Like There’s No Tomorrow” comes from “Never Boring”, the definitive Freddie Mercury solo collection, which will be released worldwide on Oct. 11 through UMG, Hollywood Records and Mercury Records.
