Serge Ibaka teaches girlfriend Keri Hilson a new language

Keri Hilson and Serge Ibaka celebrity instagram

Cute couple alert! Now that all of the drama seems to have fizzled between NBA baller Serge Ibaka and Keri Hilson, the couple seems to be in a good, healthy place. And by good, we mean great! While many couples take up a hobby together, like partnering up at the gym or placing a friendly bet during Monday Night Football, Ibaka and Hilson take on a new language.

#Lingalalisation he tagged the above video clip which he recently shared with his 350K Instagram family. In the clip, Ibaka and Hilson have a brief conversation in Lingala, a language spoken mainly in Congo-Brazzaville, Democratic Republic Congo and Angola.

Ibaka, who is Congolese-Spanish, speaks four languages fluently, including Lingala, French, English and Spanish. And from the looks of it, he’s a great teacher, as well. Too cute! – ruthie hawkins/@ruubabie

      You sound so ignorant in this post. You want to know why they disassociate themselves from black Americans? Well you just answered your own question. And if you knew anything about your world civilizations, black people are the majority in Africa, not the minority. So while they know of slavery and can empathize, they cannot directly relate to it. I’m sure you wouldn’t stand up for a cause that would benefit any of the African countries, so why should you expect that they’ll stick their necks out for yours? Yes they are viewed differently from black Americans. They excel in education and their children have home training. They don’t want to identify with all these useless black Americans that blame everyone but themselves for their own shortcomings and failures in life. You make generalizations about Africans that are simply unfair. You think they all stink and drive cabs. Well they think you’re all on welfare and illiterate.

        You were doing so well until you said “all these useless black Americans that blame everyone but themselves for their own shortcomings and failures in life” – that was just racist and stereotypical. Until then, you were making some valid points.

        i feel my point is just as valid as yours is ignorant .. there is no secret africans do not dissassociate from us they are not on a high scale as we are we are citizens something they want badly , they try to marry us to get a green card but african american women will not marry them , because they are controlling and cheaters and liers .. and they try to gain access in this country by marriage . we will marry a chinese before we will marry one of them .. i know some nigerian men who had babies by african american women . with the intent of marrying her .. she run off with the baby refusing to marry him. so there are a lot of chldren in american schools who fathers are from kenya and nirobe or nigeria west african etc …. these kids you cant tell they nigerian cause the moma is american… so they blend in with no issues other than the last name no one knows they are african … tha is ok with me as long as they stay away from me .. i had several of them asking to marry me .. i told them im already married ..
        its not that they dont care bout what is going on with african americans they ared dumbed to the history of american and slavery …. i showed a nigerian a slave film and he cried .. he said he never knew racism consist of hanging blacks from tree and degrating us .. i told him about the babies being sold , and familys devided i told him half of us dont know our relatives and have marred in our blood line cause whites didnt allow us to have birth certificates of records of ancestory ………
        so we got shipped to different states , so no one knows who they reallly are , so so dont know what KNOW BOUT MY RACE

      2. I sense a great deal of jealousy in your comment. Please calm down and try being less judgmental of others and stereotyping them.
