Guess which celeb Retweeted my tweet

guess whoTwitter came through on connecting me with a celeb last week to my surprise. I attended a Jazz series event on Friday and among the artists that performed there were two whom I was keen to hear and meet. One of them was Mos Def (whom I believe is known off stage as Yasiin Bey). He’s a prominent American rapper lyrically gifted and insanely deep. He flew in to get a feel of the Nigerian scene (and probably something at the shrine). His performance was electric and he looked like he was really having a good time. This special appearance was possible thanks to the second celeb who was performing alongside him – Seun Anikulapo Kuti, son of the legendary Fela Kuti. Seun is a renowned saxophonist who took right after his dad and has perfected his art and added his own style. I had no idea when it was suddenly almost 1am and I was still watching the two of them entertain the crowd. Here are some pics of the show (Click one to view large slideshow):

The following Saturday I posted a tweet about the show and that’s when I later noticed this conversation and a retweet from the Jazz man himself 😀 :

Seun Anikulapo Kut tweet

I can’t deny I had a big smile on my face. He didn’t shake my hand or give me a free concert ticket or invite me to collab with him on the studio. He just retweeted my tweet and copied me in a response – November was a good month indeed. I wonder if Obama would respond if I tweeted a pressing question to him. There’s only one way to find out 😉
