Grammy-winning rapper T.I. isn’t letting the Ebola virus scare keep him from traveling the world and has taken off to tour Africa.
Tip posted up a picture from his journey to Africa onto Instagram heading into the weekend.
“Just touched dwn in #Ethiopia Headed to #Tanzania #DaBoysDoneMadeItToAfrica #HustleGangInternational,” Tip captioned to a pic October 18. (T.I.’s Instagram)

Reports claim Tip is overseas to perform at an annual festival.
Sources close to the situation tell TMZ … T.I. landed in Tanzania on Friday to headline the Serengeti Fiesta this weekend — and his management team insists there is no risk of an outbreak, since the country has yet to have had a single Ebola case.
It’s true … Tanzania’s on the far east coast of Africa, while the hardest hit countries are in West Africa. It’s kinda like canceling a trip to Maine because Ebola’s in Dallas.
One not-so-fun fact for T.I. — just last month an Oxford University study said Tanzania is one of the top 15 countries in Africa at risk for animal-to-human transmission of Ebola. (TMZ)
This week, Brooklyn rapper Fabolous revealed what type of impact Ebola has had on his personal life.
“I don’t know, the cuffing season might’ve been a little pushed back, might be a little delayed, the Ebola season is out here. Sh– is real, so I don’t know if I want to touch no ladies yet,” Fab said in an interview. “Ladies be traveling a little bit; you gotta push the cuffing season back a month or two, let the vaccine settle in and then we’ll see about cuffing.” (MTV)
