#1. Take large deposit fees but last minute, reject the first two pleas/offers by Nigerians to visit and perform in their country. See Cross River Calabar Case; also see Rick Ross Nigerian concert Breach of Contract Lawsuit.
#2. Nigerians are desperate so accept the third offer, especially now that one has filed a claim in New York against you. Make sure hotels, accommodations, travels are taken care of and add a big fat check worth thousands for your appearance and performance in Nigeria.
#3. Have your people scope out all of the major slums in Lagos. Nigeria’s music industry might be interested in packaging, marketing and selling Timaya kind of “bum bum” shot and directed by Clarence Peters. But, clearly, they have no business acumen to understand ‘bum bums’ from Africa will not sell in America. Americans and the West need to see Africa’s slums and ghetto kids. You know . . . what they are used to.
BUM BUM by Timaya, Directed by Clarence Peters
#4. Get online and tweet about making some Nigerian oil money while in Lagos for your concert. You know the Nigerian blogs are gonna go crazy because everyone is so proud Ricky Rozay is performing in Lagos, of all places. What an honor. #HUNH!
#5. Now shoot your video in the slums and release teaser video images to the media and blogs. Again watch the Nigerian media, celebrities and blogs go crazy. #Hunh.
#6. Release your music video and tell the real Nigerian story Nigeria’s music industry ain’t even telling. They either poppin’ shampain or checking ‘bum bums.’ Tell the real story of Nigeria. The Nigerian baby in the ghetto crying, probably from hunger. The Nigerian children and “niggas” in the ghettos suffering, the slums. Yes, it is stereotypical, yes there are kids all around you as you rap, “these Niggas won’t hold me back.” “Pussy Hoe” in front of African kids but who cares? They are po’. When people see this here in America, they will be donating more money to Africa. Add a little Biafra War clip to make sure Americans remember we are talking Nigeria here.
#7. Now kick back and watch your video go viral.
The above is how you tell Nigeria’s real story to the World, Rick Ross style. By the way, ignore some of the “heediots” talking about how you are portraying Nigeria in a terrible light. What exactly, as Nigerians, have they done to tell the positive Nigerian true authentic story? “We talking money they talking nonsense.” #Rozay #Maybachmusic
