American rapper Jay Cole is planning to play professional basketball this Sunday. The team will play against Nigeria’s Rivers Hoopers and open the first-ever African basketball league.
The suggestions about the signing of the contract started to appear when the musician was spotted in the capital of Rwanda over the weekend. Then on Monday, the team’s coach named Alan Major officially confirmed this unexpected news.
According to the sports news website, Cole successfully arrived in Kigali on Saturday and at the moment is staying in quarantine before a forthcoming game on Sunday.
A Rwandan newspaper also shared a video where Cole is wearing a Patriots T-shirt. It was written that maybe he could compete in an NBA-backed league. The winner of the Grammy Award will more likely play from three to six games held this season.
Jay Cole is known as a big basketball fan and has mentioned LeBron James and Michael Jordan in his music lyrics. But he has no professional experience in playing basketball.
