Ashanti cancelled her first-ever South Africa concert over the weekend after a drunken teen driver killed her 20-year-old cousin, the Associated Press reports.
Police said that Quinshae Snead was en route to Ashanti’s hotel on an errand for the R&B singer before Saturday’s concert when the car she was riding in was rear-ended. The vehicle rolled over, throwing Snead into the path of an oncoming car.
The accident was caused by a 17-year-old unlicensed driver who had stolen his mother’s car, said Johannesburg metro police spokesman Chief Superintendent Wayne Minnaar. “He was also under the influence of liquor,” Minnaar told the South African Press Association.
The teen was arrested for drunk driving and hospitalized. The driver of the car with Snead also was injured and taken to the hospital.
Concert promoter Morris Roda told the South African press that Ashanti, 25 (real name: Ashanti Douglas) cried for most of Sunday. Reports on Monday morning say that the singer will escort Snead’s body back home to the U.S.

From June Issue of King Magazine:
My best friend did some sh*t to me that I never thought in a million years he would do,” Dame said in King. “It was straight war in there. Either you on Jay’s side or Dame’s side.”
“The perception is that Def Jam bought Roc-A-Fella. Jay’s the president of Def Jam. I’m Bin Laden. You could either be with Bin Laden or be with [Jay-Z]. … You know what I’m saying?”
“I don’t respect what he did, but I’m not gonna let that wash away all the other stuff we did do,” he said. “For the most part, he’s a good n-gga.”

Spokeswoman: Bow Wow and Ciara split
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
NEW YORK — Bow Wow and Ciara have split, a spokeswoman for Ciara has confirmed. The young celebrity couple had dated for nearly a year.
“I cannot comment on the reason, but can confirm that Ciara and Bow Wow have split,” said Tracy Nguyen in a statement Monday. The spokeswoman also took the unusual step of stating that the breakup wasn’t amicable.
A message left with Bow Wow’s publicist wasn’t immediately returned.
Bow Wow, whose real name is Shad Moss, was christened Lil’ Bow Wow by Snoop Dogg. He dropped the “Lil’” in 2003.
The 19-year-old rapper sang a duet with Ciara on “Like You,” the second single off his fourth album, “Wanted.”
Ciara, 20, was dubbed “the First Lady of Crunk & B” by Lil’ Jon, who produced her debut single, “Goodies,” from her 2004 album of the same name.
“The video is [about] something that happened a long time ago, and it was a very embarrassing moment when I thought I was getting married,” she explained in between shooting. “I was engaged to [Jodeci singer K-Ci], and I actually went on a talk show overseas and that person had just done that talk show about a week before me. I was telling the interviewer that I was getting married, and the week before he was saying that it was a rumor. He wasn’t marrying me. It was a disaster that really embarrassed me.”
Former The Source magazine head honchos Ray “Benzino” Scott and Dave Mays called in to “The Star & Buc Wild Morning Show” yesterday morning (April 5) to address Mays’ rumored head-bashing at the hands of rapper Busta Rhymes.
However, when queried about the incident, both Mays and Benzino painted a much different picture of how things played out. According to the two, while Busta did confront Mays about what had said, the end results were not as severe as reports have said. When first approached by Busta about the alleged statements, Benzino told him, “You ain’t gotta make no scene. If Dave said something, you all can sit down and y’all can talk.” Though the situation seemed diffused at the time, Busta apparently still had some issues to get off his chest and followed Mays to the front of the nightclub. “I’m not exactly sure what happened,” Mays related. “He [Busta] started up with some words about something and then somebody came up from behind me and hit me with something… I have four stitches in my head. There was no bottle; it was nothing serious. I don’t know what it was. Something hit me in the back of my head, but it was no bottle. I would’ve had glass in my head.” ……
