Other than COVID-19, one of the biggest headlines of 2020 was the murder of George Floyd which was captured on camera by a young girl.
The protests that followed and cries for justice garnered tons of headlines across the globe.
But in Atlanta, USA, a local chart-topping rapper and a former NBA star are making new memories, tied to a birthday party for Floyd's seven-year-old daughter Gianna.
Rapper Lil Baby is known for his stack of top 10 hits, streamed more than 11 billion times, but he won street credits on Wednesday, December 16 night after throwing a PINK LOL surprise birthday party for Gianna.
The intimate socially distanced pampering party held at Atlanta’s Pink Hotel was full of stations for guests to get their hair done, as well as manicures and pedicures and lots of balloons and sweets for Little Gianna.
Former NBA Star Stephen Jackson who was her father's best friend said they just wanted to make the day special for the little girl who was traumatised after losing her father to police brutality.
“We wanted to make sure her birthday was special we want to make sure she continues to feel special the same way her father wanted her to feel special on this day,” said Jackson, who is also Gianna's godfather.
According to TMZ, the rapper paid for the whole party and also shared some of the party footage on his Instagram Stories
He captioned the videos, "RIP George Floyd from ‘The Bigger Picture,’” a reference to his song about police brutality that was inspired in part by George Floyd’s murder.
Baby was not the only celebrity on deck for the party, Shaquille O’Neal also dropped by to celebrate.
YEN.com.gh previously reported George Floyd was killed in May 2020 by police in Minneapolis while a young girl captured the incident on phone.
