The US Justice Department is currently embroiled in a case against Teodoro Nguema Obiang Mangue, the son of the President of Equatorial Guinea and the second VP of the country himself, over the seizure of $70 million in his assets (he’s had similar issues in France).
Nguema attended Pepperdine University and dated the rapper Eve, who was quite the star during my high school days and is now trying to stage a career comeback. Eve will be performing at the Howard Theatre on September 13. If any of you folks at the DC-based EG Justice get a chance to talk to her about that relationship, I’d be most interested. I wonder if Eve ever went to Malabo?
