Rihanna & Chris Brown touched down Ivory Coast finally after a delay that cost the organisers thier time and money!!!, B scheduled to perform at the Kora Awards.
It is no doubt that the city of Abidjan is about 7,370 miles away from the Staples Center, where the supposedly dysfunctional duo played hide the reindeer during the El Lay Lakers’ Christmas Day game.
From the video above, the contentious couple are exiting their plane (above) and prepping to participate in what has is considered as the Sub-Saharan Africa’s version of the Grammys.
US rapper Chris Brown arrived with singer Rihanna in the Ivory Coast city Abidjan today Sunday, when he was due to perform at an African music awards show.
Brown was billed as the star attraction at the glitzy Kora Awards, dubbed the “African Grammys”, that recognise musical achievements from around the continent.

Where is your respect to African people?…..Mr Brown!! Are we so meaningless to you?! ……..Resting my case. Continue reading
