Alphonso Ribero and Chaka Khan on Celebrity Duets

2 March 2010 5 Comments

A few days ago Dj Stylus shared this video on Facebook and I haven’t been able to shake it since. He quipped, “I’m surprised that I saw this before Thembi, aka the mistress of all things obscure and Negronian.” Yeah thanks, but courtesy of  this video I’ve developed a mild phobia related to brown leather and fringes. I’d never seen Fox’s Celebrity Duets let alone this performance, but there is so much squatting and doing-the-most-ness on the part of Alphonso Ribero that Chaka Khan’s trademark extraness is almost a mere distraction. Just watch.

    That guy is as wide across as he is tall. Sadly, so is my girl chaka. I look at her on old Soul Train reruns and I curse the day McDonald’s invented the Big Mac.

    #1 They both match. One fringed suede jacket is enough for both of them. Even if they have to share.

    #2 LMAO @ Natty Femme
