Screwed up Priorities? Darey Art Alade Pays Kim Kardashian to Host his ‘Love Like a Movie Valentine’ Concert


Darey Love Like A Movie Co-hosted by Kim KOn February 9th, 2013, Darey Art Alade announced Kim Kardashian will be his co-host at his upcoming event, ‘Love Like a Movie’ Valentine concert.

Why Darey Art Alade is paying/requesting Kim Kardashian to fly to Nigeria to host his upcoming Valentine concert beats me.

I get that he is trying to break into the US market and has been for a long time now. Anyone remember his collabo with Chamillionaire? What about the promise of a USA invasion/tour? The last real push was on the UK end when he bombarded the media and blogs with  images of him hobnobbing with the rich and famous . . . now this.

Is Kim Kardashian supposed to be the epitome of what real love, much less a healthy love relationship looks like? Actually forget all that. To each his own, they say, and to some extent, I agree.

So, let’s ask this question in a different way. If Kim Kardashian were Nigerian-American will Darey and his event organizers pay/request her presence in Nigeria? If we will disgrace, abuse/ridicule a woman in the exact situation like KK who happens to be of Nigerian/African heritage, why are we so comfortable dropping the standards so low for non-Nigerians/non-Blacks. Oh yeah! I got the memo. She is non-black so that’s the difference.

We have our priorities really screwed up. Truly. That’s all I will say on this. Good luck to him and I hope it helps revive his music career and puts some energy behind his record label. Maybe, finally, this connection with Kanye West might open the door for his entrance into the US market.

It’s been long coming so this might just be that much needed breakthrough.

This story annoys me to no end but I will refrain from saying more on this.

You all are more than welcome to disagree with me. Only then will I feel somewhat inclined to engage in a debate. Such nonsense.
