It seems like South Africa has become the destination of choice for many US artists.
Some though, like it more than others and make it an actual thing to come back time and time again. Case in point: a certain Mr. Harris aka T.I. The rapper recently posted up pictures of him and his son in Cape Town.
The trip was supposed to be in celebration of his son's doing well academically.
Of course, South African's when they saw this frequent in and out, they thought they'd help T.I. with signing up for that permanent South African residency. How? By giving him a South African name of course.
You welcome Tip....but when you are here you are not Tip you are Themba okay!😀❤— #TMB💉 (@THEBIG_World) June 20, 2018
The reasoning behind this was simple: when Kevin Hart was in South Africa not too long ago, he too received a South African name, Mpho.
for real...when Kevin Hart was here he was Mpho😂— #TMB💉 (@THEBIG_World) June 20, 2018
So now we're wondering if Themba will have any shows in SA since he's here for an undisclosed amount of time. Honestly speaking though, we would've named him Andile being light skinned and all.
