Tanzania singer Ben Pol has opened up on his first encounter with American rapper T.I noting that it did not kick off well.
In February this year, Ben Pol was touring Los Angeles, where he met the rapper. Both were staying in the same hotel. According to Ben Pol, he decided to approach T.I. for a photo and exchange of contacts.
Ben Pol revealed that T.I. was initially angered because he thought the singer was a regular fan. However, after mentioning that he was from Tanzania, T.I. became friendly and reminded him of a show he did in the country.
They later decided to exchange email addresses for future collaborations.
“Mwanzo ni kama alivimba...lakini niklipomwambia I’m from Tanzania East Africa...alifeel kwamba jamaa ana feel kutoka East Africa...akazungumza alikuja kufanya show. Mwanzo ilikuwa ngumu lakini ikakuwa smooth. Contact nikichukua email addresses...baada ya hapo hatujafanya mawasiliano… I feel hajakuwa active kimuziki,” said Ben Pol.
However, Ben Pol did not reveal whether they have plans to work together in future.
While in the US, Ben Pol made contacts with Gucci Mane and Ray Jay. He stated that he was to do a collaboration with Ray Jay, but he was busy.
