Popular Ugandan media personality and NTV Uganda news presenter Flavia Tumusiime shocked her fans yesterday when she revealed what transpired during her encounter with American rapper J. Cole.
The former teen star revealed how the “Crocked smile” rapper tried persuading her to have a one-night stand with him after the 2012 Big Brother Africa after-party and how she overcame it. Read below;
“Do you ever wonder if our behavior sometimes gives off the wrong signals? In 2012 when I hosted Big brother Africa I also got to interview US rapper J-Cole. I had been so excited about the interview because I was a fan and I knew most of his music. The interview went so well and after the show, my colleagues and I went for the show after-party. J-Cole also came with his team and we were asked to take group pics, we did, but as a fan, I asked for a pic with just me and him and he was okay with it. After the pic, he told me ” shawty you look nice and I loved the interview” lol I guess that is how rappers speak. We chatted for sometime, my naive self-thinking it was 2 people having a professional conversation about music.’
“There were girls that had been set to sit with him and dance with him, I moved away and left them to have their fun, an hour later, one of his guards came to our booth asking me to follow him, that he wanted to talk to me about something privately, as he pulled me away, my colleague came and grabbed my hand and asked to speak to me…she said “I bet he wants a moment with you alone, don’t be stupid, he thinks you are available” I was shocked at this and I told the guard to go and tell him I was okay here and if it was important he can come to us. I was still shocked, what vibe did I give off that made me look like I wanted to go with him privately??? well my colleague told me, you must be careful how you act around people, the extra giggle, the body language, the words you use could all create a perception you don’t want. Till today I use this advice. Your actions could incite a reaction you are not prepared for so be careful how you relate towards strangers, be sure of the signals you are sending out.”
