Timberlake, Fiasco to climb Mt. Kilimanjaro for charityApril 11th, 2009 - 1:54 pm ICT by ANI
Washington, April 11 (ANI): Justin Timberlake and rapper Lupe Fiasco will team up with pop singer Kenna to climb Mount Kilimanjaro to raise funds for charity.
The singers will be amongst other adventurers to mount the 19,000-foot African peak as part of the effort to create awareness for the global water crisis.
Kenna, co-ordinator for the giant ascend, revealed it would further fulfill a personal but a noble ambition.
“My dad almost died as a child from waterborne diseases in Ethiopia, and he had talked to me about digging a well there, and I thought, ‘I have too many friends who would be concerned with the subject of clean water. Maybe I can help out,’” Contactmusic quoted him as telling Elle magazine.
Meanwhile, Fiasco insisted he was looking forward to playing mischief-maker.
He said: “I’m an adventure junkie. Part of the motivation is beating Kenna to the top. Sabotaging his tent, taking the lining out of his coat, lacing it with ants or something like that.” (ANI)
