Out & About: Djimon, Chamillionaire and Ne-Yo

Feels Good 2 B Home supports and celebrates both Nigerian and African folks. So enjoy some recent photos of Djimon, Chamillionaire and Ne-You out and about in Hollywood.
Djimon Hounsou of 'Blood Diamond' celebrated with the A-list (Steven Speilberg, Ben Affleck and Leonardo DiCarpio) in Hollywood for the 12th Annual Critics' Choice Awards.

'Djimon Gaston Hounsou (born April 24, 1964), pronounced "Jie-mon Hahn-soo" is an Academy Award-nominated Beninese actor, dancer and fashion model who was born in Cotonou, Benin. He is now a naturalized U.S. citizen.' {http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Djimon_Hounsou}

Chamillionaire is supposedly Nigerian (so is the rumor.) Check him out on the set of Three Six Mafia video, "Doe Boyfresh."

Ladies and gents Chamillionaire is Nigerian!
'After his parents, a Muslim father from Oyo State, Nigeria and a Christian mother from the United States, separated in his early teenage years, Chamillionaire settled into a notoriously dangerous inner-city neighborhood in North Houston called Acres Homes, which he elaborated upon during an interview with Houston's 104.9 KPTY on October 3. Rap and other forms of secular music, which his parents had highly opposed in their household, became very appealing to the young Hakeem Seriki. Inspired by local rap acts such as The Geto Boys, 8 Ball & MJG, and UGK, as well as other national acts such as N.W.A. and Public Enemy, Chamillionaire began to compose his own ryhmes.' {http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chamillionaire}

Ne-Yo dropped by BET's 106 & Park to promote his new movie, 'Stomp the Yard' with his co-star Meagan Good. Rumor also has it that Ne-Yo's Nigerian.
Ne-Yo
As for Ne-Yo being Nigerian the rumor comes from Ne-Yo's middle name. Some folks believe it's a Nigerian name. You be the judge. Ne-Yo was born Shaffer Chimere Smith.
