Tough Night for Keri Hilson


Imagine taking a 17 hour flight to perform and nobody shows up to hear you sing.

Welcome to Keri Hilson's world...

Entertainment writers for OMG Ghana posted pictures of Keri Hilson's empty venue in the Nigerian capital Abuja.

ouch.

LmaOooOoooooO! I'm sure she got her money regardless tho......but the pics are too fUnNy tho - a picture truly speaks a thousand words.

Its bad when the folks in Ghana aren't even checking for you. The "ICON" necklace that she's wearing should instead say "mediocre at best."

Anonymous said...

lol @ "mediocre at best". I feel bad for her.

Miss want-ah-be Keri baby. Throwing shade/hate toward a famous "ICON/LEDEND"(BEYONCE)will damage your career.

She can't sing anyway!

Anonymous said...

yall give beyonce too much power. This has nothing to do with her. Keri is in the same sinking ship as kelly, ciara, ashanti and about a dozen other aspiring starlets. Im not one to knock a sistas hustle, maybe she should give tyler perry a call.

Anonymous said...

maybe the performance wasn't advertised properly.

maybe those photos were taken before the show.

Anonymous said...

Ciara shyt probably be the same way....both of em need to take sum fukking pictures and call it a day....the memory will LAST LONGER. Im sure their job is way easier than mine....but FAME does require relevance #NeNeVoice "Bloop"

did she really have to fly all the way there to know that ticket sales were low...This should have been canceled...I am not a fan but I do feel bad for her but what song does she even have out right now tho?

Anonymous said...

It has nothing to do w/ her beef B. She has yet to be a big star regardless

Marcus Rogers said...

May be pics from before or after the performance; maybe during but she was sent off about ticket sales.

In her words, " she need to go have some babies." Bahahahahahaaaa!

TruthBeTold said...

WHo goes to Nigeria to perform anyway??? Africans ain't got time for American shitty pop rnb!

The eye makeup is off the hook tho

Anonymous said...

Which of her songs have been top ten hits?

*silence*

She doesn't have the 'IT' factor.
She just doesn't have stage presence or the star power for people to go see her in concert.
(Even though her critique of Beyonce was justified!)

YOU ARE A TYPICAL IGNORANT CULTURALLY CHALLENGED DESCENDANT OF A SLAVE THAT DOESN'T KNOW JACK SH!T ABOUT GEOGRAPHY. What do you mean 'even the folks in Ghana' YOU DUMB ASS. YOUR PRESIDENT WENT TO GHANA AND SAID IT IS THE MOST EXEMPLARY NATION IN AFRICA. MALCOM X VISITED GHANA AND SAID IT WAS THE MOST CULTURALLY MOBILE NATION HE HAS EVER WITNESSED.

SICK AND TIRED OF IGNORANT SCUM LIKE YOU SPEAKING ON THINGS THAT YOU ARE UNEQUIVOCALLY ILL INFORMED ON. WHITE PEOPLE GO TO GHANA AND BUY OCEAN FRONT PROPERTIES FOR VACATION AND THE NERVE OF YOU NO PASSPORT HAVING GHETTO RAT TO HAVE SOMETHING TO SAY?

We were there. People showed up late.You know PC time.It was full, come on !! Crabs in a barrel mentality SMH..

Lenny said...

She should've just stayed behind the scenes as a songwriter. Especially after her first struggle album, she knew then that no one was checkin for her but two people in each region of the U.S.

somebody put the voodoo curse on honey. She on that third world tour this early in her career? She's must be headlining with the likes of Tevin Campbell

I have a very hard time believing this. The whole story seems fabricated.

Anonymous said...

I'm Nigerian and I didn't get an insult from the person who said even the people in Ghana .. The person probably meant that even the people in another country aren't interested in Kerri. I don't see that as a slight . I guess what the person should of said is even the people in Nigeria aren't checking for Kerri since that's where the event was. Maybe the person didn't see the the press was from Ghana

@3:12
I say this with NO sarcasm. Thank you for your intelligent, moderate response. I got the same impression from the post. The wording was open to interpretation but I don't think the poster was being insulting to people of Ghana.

A lot of these countries in Africa and Latin America have their own local talent that are just as good as anything you can hear in the States and Europe. So they are not pressed for an American act.

YOU DON'T GET IT.

Whenever someone says even it is to degrade that person and make it appear as they are inferior BY DEFAULT.

If I were to say that test was so easy of course the Chinese got a 100% even the Irish got a 90% that means that i'm trying to say the test is so easy EVEN THE IRISH (as dumb as they are -hypothetically speaking) got a 90% which would virtually be impossible under any other legitimate exam.

Anyway the insults were not needed my apologies. AND I am not apologizing to please any of you.

You are not built for these gossip blogs.

WTF????!!! @ 5:03 PM
"Whenever someone says (even) it is to degrade that person and make it appear as they are inferior BY DEFAULT".

NO THE HELL IT'S NOT.
you taking that simple word way too far in to a deep dark place that only someone who lives a super negative life full of insults would go.
Using comparisons, especially "EVEN" is a simple middle school thing, even 12 year old's get it, use it and don't look at all deep like it's meant to degrade.
On comedy sitcoms the writers have the Fat people use it jokingly by saying "EVEN I wouldn't eat that" and it's good comedy fun based off truth.
and if you're using "EVEN" because of stereotypes (that are often true) how is that degrading/inferior/etc?
Even a deaf person wouldn't want to see keri perform (??degrading/inferior??)
Even a black person wouldn't eat that chicken
Even a gypsy/traveler wouldn't sale that sh*t
Even a white women wouldn't buy that tan product
Even the British wouldn't buy that album and they like Kelly Rowland

"EVEN" is not an automatic/default attempt to degrade another, I'm sure most attempts to degrade/offend depend on the attitude of the person speaking it

Thank you 3:12. Media from Ghana, Nigerian event. And for the person who said rihanna should be wearing that icon chain, put the pipe down. She's a lot of things, but icon ain't one of them. Wake up, cuz you're dreaming.

Very well put 7:18 .. People come on here and get so serious about the comments and its supposed to be fun. Not a debate .

Anonymous said...

What the poster said about Americans is an insult. No and if's or maybes about that statement , and nothing could be further than the truth, its wrong to say all Americans are ignorant , how can that be? That's like someone saying all people from Africa don't wear deodorant . Absurd and insulting.

Anonymous said...

@7:18 That is to YOU. If YOU were not the one who made the initial comment then YOU have no business addressing me in the first place. My comment was directed to that ignorant one. Your explanations were of no use at all and didn't even minutely illustrate your point.It only served to highlight your profound ignorance. And just FYI all of those examples only proved my point. Oh and as far as 'living super negative life' So not only are you are dumb and ignorant but you are also a dumb and ignorant medium now? Seeing as though you can sum up my life without even 1) knowing me 2) seeing me.
So this site has all type of what I like to call colorful idiots and you ranked extremely high on that list. Now interpret THAT. Dumb ass

@7:37
The way you think and comment is not the way I think so it's time for you to get your dumb close minded ass a chance to realize not everyone is alike.

@5:22

You're right in that I am not 'built' for these type of blogs considering the fact that I DO NOT GOSSIP PERIOD. But reading the ignorant comments and not correcting them of the dummies like yourself who do like to gossip because they are the ones dishing and not taken,and of course are of no importance to even gossip about, well the genius inside of me won't allow that.

TheUltimate said...

LMAO @ 9:55 AM! You ain't right. You ain't right at all!

Anonymous said...

@2:11 you sound ignorant talking about what white people do, as if they are what us black people should measure ourselves by. And 9:48 didn't say anything offensive, so me-thinks you have a complex. If black Americans are so silly, why are you even on this site? I am an African telling you that you are being stupid right now. Are you really proud of white people buying beachfront properties in your country, fucking your women and using your men as servants 'cause that's how the whites you mentioned do it. Lol

Keri Hilson needs better PR. The people who were there are saying the place was full, just that people arrived late and the pics are misleading. Bleachonce PR always makes sure to say her concerts are sold out, even when people who were there report plenty empty seats and pics to the contrary never make it to press. See the difference? Keri needs to make a statement before this gets out of control. On the whole, all the big name female R 'nB singers of today really suck. It is sad to watch 30yrs and over women try to hold on to being young&sexy 'cause that's all the type of music they ever made. Picture Keri Hilson performing 'Turning me Off' at 40 or Beyonce performing 'Single Ladies' with no pants on right now! Abe! Ashanti, Brandy and AKeys are the only ones who ever made music of substance that they can perform 'til they're 60. But nowadays, they are also more concerned with looking youthful and sexy than their music. I don't count Rihanna as R'nB by the way - she's pop and damn good at it. Also she is still very young so her sex appeal never seems forced. But all the rest I mentioned are superplayed out. I am so ready for some new blood in R'nB!!!!!!

Not so true http://youtu.be/gdg9Z8uovv8 ...this is Keri's 3rd or 4th time to perform in Naija (Nigeria) and as Nigerians its hard to always get us to come out on time. If it says 8 we be there at 10 or 11, especially in our home country... Anyway Keri did great! http://youtu.be/gdg9Z8uovv8

I love how her necklace says ICON, too soon baby.
The last pic, ppl are leaving LOL. I wish there was a photo of her on the stage.

Anonymous said...

I dont buy it, if anyone knows anything about Nigerians is that we're notoriously always late. I'm sure more ppl arrived after the concert started.
