Jay-Z's name trended high on Twitter on April Fool's Day, 1 April after an alleged tracklist for his new album featuring African rappers went viral on the app.
Even Nasty C took to Instagram and shared the tracklist of the US rapper's "new album" titled Ascension. The 16-track album features other US superstars such as Beyoncé, H.E.R and Rick Ross.
The Africa-themed project also featured big artistes from the African continent including Ghana's very own Sakordie.
South African star Nasty C took to Instagram late on Thursday and posted the tracklist. He did not caption it. He has since deleted the post.
Some social media users fell for the prank while others did not believe the news at all. Check out some of their comments below:
"It's Fake News."

"Apparently it's an April Fool's joke."
"I am cool with this contract between Jay-Z and Nasty C."

In other entertainment news, YEN.com.gh reported that following the unexpected announcement made by Shatta Wale that he was looking to retire, some social media users have reacted to the news with joy and readiness.
Shatta Wale took to Twitter to announce that he was going to literally 'hang his microphone' after he released his much-anticipated Gift Of God (GOG) album.
His tweet read: "THIS #GOGALBUM WILL BE MY RETIREMENT ALBUM. Made enough to go into new businesses and create employment for those who still want to follow the course!"
The tweet raised a lot of concerns from Shatta Movement loyalists who could not watch their king drop the mic and lock up his studios for good.
