T.I. braves Ebola outbreak to headline gig in Africa

Rapper T.I. shrugged off fears over the Ebola outbreak by jetting to Africa to headline a concert in Tanzania.

The hip-hop star posted a series of pictures on his Instagram.com page showing himself sporting a face mask after touching down in Ethopia and also going through an Ebola checkpoint, adding in a caption, "Just touched dwn in Ethiopia headed to Tanzania da boys done made it to Africa hustle gang international."

T.I. then traveled to Tanzania to perform at the Serengeti Fiesta.

More than 4,000 people have died since the Ebola outbreak erupted in West Africa earlier this year (14), with Nigeria, Liberia and Sierra Leona among the worst affected countries.
