American rapper and actor Will Smith has made a startling revelation about his wife, Jada Pinkett Smith’s close bond with late rapper Tupac Shakur.
The 51-year-old Hollywood actor has admitted that he was “jealous” of Jada and Tupac’s relationship and regretted not getting to know the rapper better before he was shot dead.
Will, who was a rapper himself before becoming an award-winning actor, was speaking on American radio station Power 105’s The Breakfast Club, as he promoted Bad Boys for Life alongside co-star Martin Lawrence.
The show’s host, Charlamagne tha God, asked Will if he felt jealous over Jada’s ‘love’ for Tupac, to which he replied: “F*** yeah.”
Will went on to say:
“That was in the early days. That was a big regret for me, too, because I could never open up to interact with Pac.”
“They grew up together, they loved each other but they never had the sexual relationship.
“We were in the room together a couple of times and we never spoke to each other. That was a huge regret for me, I couldn’t just handle it
“I was deeply insecure and wasn’t just man enough to handle that relationship.”
Jada and Tupac had met during their teenage years at The Baltimore School for the Arts.
They became instant friends and were still in constant contact when Jada hooked up with Will.

Reminisce ft. Fireboy on new song ‘Ogaranya’
Remilekun Safaru, a Nigerian rapper-songwriter better known as Reminisce, has enlisted Fireboy, a YBNL-signed singer, for his collaborative single titled ‘Ogaranya’.
The song, which was released on Monday, is produced by Sarz, a showbiz mogul, as part of Reminisce’s upcoming six-track EP ‘Vibes and Insha Allah’.
In ‘Ogaranya’, which doubles as an Igbo title describing a person of financial influence, Reminisce brings aboard his Yoruba-Pidgin rap flows as Fireboy croons about romantic stints in the background.
While the song comes as Fireboy’s first feature outside YBNL since he joined the label, it also doubles as one of Reminisce’s followups to ‘Prosperity’, his collaborative track with Falz, a colleague rapper.
Reminisce had his first song in 2006, recording a hardcore rap album at Coded Tunes but the project was never released. He thereafter decided to focus on his studies and complete schooling.
In 2008, he had a rap verse on a track titled ‘Bachelor’s Life’ off ‘Gongo Aso’, 9ice’s sophomore album. ‘Ever since’ and ‘If Only’, his first and second singles, would later establish him in the country’s music industry.
With four albums to his name, the rapper has snagged multiple awards, worked with notable musicians across Nigerian, and made a slew of critically acclaimed tracks.

Tanzanian singer, Vanessa Hau Mdee, has announced her decision to quit her music career.
The 32-year-old songstress said it on her 29 minutes Podcast “Deep Dive with Vanessa Mdee”.
According to Mdee, the music industry is demonic and she is currently working on being an advocate of honesty, beauty and what facing your demons can do for you.
“I don’t know who needs to hear this, but my mission is to be a light. I know that I would probably disappoint a few people and that’s okay.
”I know that my fans don’t wanna hear this but guess what am never be too far away from you, trust me. The reason why I had to leave the industry is that I needed to choose my life, the music industry is demonic.
”People will tell you half-truth about what really goes on, and the truth is I just wanna be an advocate for honesty and beauty and being a sincere advocate for what facing your demons can do for You.
“Now my fans are probably asking themselves right now; Are you gonna never sing again? Are we gonna never see you perform? Let me reiterate, I love music, I love to create, I love to perform, I’m a vessel, this is what I was brought on earth to be.
Mdee also recalled becoming an alcoholic who could drink herself to sleep after becoming depressed.
“My advice to someone out there is that be true to who you are. I used to say this in many interviews but not really understand any of it, because then again it sounded like the right thing to say.
”But be true to who you are, I had to look at myself, face myself that it was pain, it was shameful, it was scary but I had to do it because there was no other way and in that I found peace and in that I found elevation, I found desire and passion for life.
