Popular Ugandan radio and TV host, Flavia Tumusiime, has opened up about the steamy details of her encounter with American rapper J. Cole.
In her 30 days of Flavia Tumusiime series, the renowned TV personality reveals how J. Cole asked to have a ‘private time’ with her after she had interviewed him.
However, upon advice from her close friend, the 27-year-old says she turned down the award-winning rapper.
The emcee says her warmth and sociability made J. Cole think he could easily bed her.
“Do you ever wonder if our behavior sometimes gives off the wrong signals? In 2012 when I hosted Big Brother Africa, I also got to interview US rapper J.Cole,” began Flavia.
She narrated: “The interview went so well and after the show, my colleagues and I went for the after-party. J-Cole also came with his team and we were asked to take group pictures, we did, As a fan, I asked for a photo with just me and him.”
Recounting the exact words that the celebrated rapper whispered to her, Flavia said: “After the picture, he told me ‘shawty you look nice and I loved the interview’.”
In typical Hollywood fashion, the artiste was surrounded by a bevy of beauties.
“There were girls that had been set to sit with him and dance with him, I moved away and left them to have their fun, “ told Flavia.
But it seems J. Cole’s eyes were only set on Flavia: “An hour later, one of his guards came to our booth asking me to follow him that he wanted to talk to me about something privately.
“As he pulled me away, my colleague came and grabbed my hand and asked to speak to me. She said ‘I bet he wants a moment with you alone Don’t be stupid, he thinks you are available.”
It is this statement which made bells ring in Flavia’s mind about Cole’s intentions: “I was shocked at this and I told the guard to go and tell him I was okay here and if it was important he can come to us.
This left Flavia wondering: “What vibe did I give off that made me look like I wanted to go with him ‘privately’?”
After that experience she advised: “Your actions could incite a reaction you are not prepared for so be careful how you relate towards strangers, be sure of the signals you are sending out.”
