50 Cent loses 54 Pounds (Ug shs 178,629)

Rapper 50 Cent has been famous for four things.

  • Rapping about how much fun it is to shoot people and sell drugs.
  • Unsuccessfully trying to act in mediocre movies.
  • That episode of the Boondocks of Soul Plane.
  • Having forearms the size of trees and  a chest as broad as a door.  And why not? As a multimillionaire rapper, he had access to the best steroids money could buy.

But that ‘s all about to chance as 50 (also knows as Curtis Jackson) prepares for the next artistic challenge before him.

50 (also known, by the way, as Booboo. No, really. That’s  one of his nicknames) is  preparing to play the role of a cancer-striken football player in a film titled Things fall Apart.

Part of these preparations include shedding 54 pounds (or in Ugandan currency, 24 kgs) in weight to play the part convincingly. The result is that what was formerly a black hulk of rap now looks like this.

Yes. If you needed any further proof that Booboo was descended from the slopes of the Great Mount Elgon, there you go. Dude looks just like Form Four georgraphy teacher Mr Mukwaase Henry.

Of course American musicians are not the only ones venturing into the movie business. Even here at home we have occasionally seen recording artists try their hand at this movie lark. Julianna was in something called (Shit. I’ve all forgotten) and Bobi Wine starred in that thing with the name misspelled.

None has gone to such great lengths as not eating for six months, but if Curtis has started at trend, we look forward to seeing…

  • Straka loses mob kgs  to play a poor village belle struggling to make it through poverty and gender discrimination in A Woman’s Work.
  • Julianna loses her weave to play a poor urban belle struggling to make it in spite of kaweke in Hair Raiser
  • Sweet Kid loses his fake accent  to play a teacher who inspires a class of inner-city youth to success.
  • Rabadaba loses his sunglases to play a chap who actually has eyes.

  1. The mistakes don’t matter. This was hilarious. :D

    Now could someone please do a post on Golola Moses? He is all over Facebook, and I can’t quite figure out why.

  2. But 50 cent looks stray! Kudos for effort though.

    @Princess You can’t figure out why Golola is all over Facebook? The man is a legend!

    And I agree with some people, Baz, this post seems suspiciously un-you.

  3. Okay, see, I have been writing in a notebook lately, with a pen, and not typing, so I had to type what I had written and then the pilgrims came and I had a heavy sleep debt so I did the best I could.
    And even when I tried to edit the words kept moving. So I went home to sleep.
    This is not an excuse. This is me protesting too much.

    Meanwhile, finally got the correct link to Jeremiah Kenzi. Sorted.

  4. Hahaha,this is hilarious. Poor Mukwaasi:-)
    I need you to confirm this info for me Ernest:-
    1.Juliana has kaweke?
    2.She was in a movie? When?

  5. I did like the article really much, was really informative and the best part was that only the required part was elaborated, to the point concise information always helps and keeps readers running around digging for the information’s will never require a reread. I really wish spammers read these articles and check how easy it is to be human and respect knowledge.
