According to reports, Tekashi 6ix9ine was hospitalized two days ago after consuming too much caffeine and weight loss pills.
According to The Shade Room, the 24-year-old rapper said he took two Hydroxycut pills and drank a McDonald’s coffee, which caused him to start sweating profusely and have an increased heart rate.
Tekashi 6ix9ine reportedly said he was only taking Hydroxycut and not any other drugs because drug use would be violating the conditions of his strict probation, which would land him back in prison.
The rapper has been open about his weight loss journey. He put on quite a bit of weight once he was released from prison on federal firearms and racketeering charges, weighing over 200 pounds at one point. 6ix9ine says he is making headway in his weight loss journey and has gotten down to 177 pounds. However, his goal weight is 150 pounds, and at that point, he’ll return to Instagram.
The Shade Room also notes that the 24-year-old artist is currently home and “doing fine.”
Meanwhile, The display of the green-white Nigerian colours on the world’s tallest building, Burj Khalifa in Dubai, United Arab Emirates (UAE), to mark Nigeria’s 60th Independence Anniversary may not be a gesture of goodwill after all.
Many Nigerians Thursday gushed endlessly on seeing the 828 metre-tall edifice turn green and white and assumed it was UAE’s way of identifying with the West African nation who has turned its Middle Eastern counterpart to a Mecca of sorts.
However, it has emerged that it cost 250,000 Emirate Dirham (approximately N25.6 million) to put up.
Lead Partner at SBM Intelligence, Mr. Cheta Nwanze, who tweets from @Chxta, claimed this in a tweet on Friday.
He wrote, “Woke up to see cretins in my mentions about Burj Khalifa.
*Someone blew ₦25.9M on that stunt. Food inflation at 16% but you’re blowing money on trips. Biko let me go for my exercise. This 19° won’t go to waste.”
