Put Some “Respeck on it!” Watch Igwe ‘2Pac’ Perform “Amoshine” on @EbonyLife_TV

A few months ago, actor Charles Okocha aka Igwe “2Pac” posted a clip on Instagram that had a parallel weirdness like hip-hop mogul Birdman’s appearance, in April, on New York’s Breakfast Club Power 105.1.  where he demanded the hosts, “put some respeck on it!”

Igwe 2Pac’s video, just like Birdman’s, went viral. If you missed it, click here for the story. However, just like Birdman, the actor is monetizing the result of what seemed rather odd, his own phrase ‘Amoshine.’

He drops a single titled ‘Amoshine’ and is going full court press on branding the phrase with television and radio appearances. Watch him perform ‘Amoshine’ on Ebony Life TV’s EL NOW show.

I love the lightness of it all, and the message to keep going because ultimately, you will shine when it is your time to shine.
