It was reported that NBC is looking to replace Ellen Degeneres after allegations surfaced about a toxic work environment where racism and other issues went unnoticed and unchecked. Celebrities have been vying for the post and one of such include rapper and poet 35 year old Wale Akintimehin who is looking to host it even if it is for a week.
The rapper made his intention known that he was looking to add talk show host to his already rapper resume. After making his intention, Wale tweeted he was looking forward to bringing Nigerian duo comedy actors Aki & Paw Paw, real name Chinedu Ikedieze and Osita Iheme respectively to the Ellen show if he was made the talk host.
In a tweet, Wale said
We hope Wale gets that role and puts the Nigerian flag on a better light as he promised to wear an agabda and to give out rolex watches on his first set.
