It so happens that most musicians, especially RnB and Hip Hop stars have their inspiration tied to another artiste, who they model in dressing, lyrics, dance or lifestyle, and they will definitely be star struck should they get the chance to meet them. For Michael Ross Kakooza, that star must be Ginuwine.
Mr Ross was so ready for this show that he booked himself a ticket in the VIP section, to comfortably be serenaded by Ginuwine without a single disturbance. As the show wound down, a rose-wielding Ginuwine started crooning PONY, a song Michael Ross has way up the log of his all time favs. Like any fan, he left his seat from VIP backstage to capture the lifetime moment. The bouncers were quick to tell him to maintain his distance from a real celebrity. Ross was pissed, and he slipped behind the bouncer to get onto the stage and share the limelight.

Twitter wastes no time in finding the lighter side of things. So apparently Michael Ross is a great dancer, whose opinion convinced him that his moves make the cut for every occasion
Michael Ross bambi thought his back slides would be relevant to Ginuwine’s music.????

Bebe cool’s moment of being chased off the stage by angry mob ia going to be the most embarrassing moment of the year

So Mr Rudende, what do you think Michael Ross needs to do to get over such an embarrassment?
Michael Ross needs to pull a Spice Diana. Just like she dropped her track “32”, he needs to drop a track called “Throw Me Off”. Or something like that.

I would love to know what you think about the whole thing. If you were one of the bouncers or Michael Ross, what would you do?
