It was an awesome turnout on a very cold night in Atlanta, Georgia. In the aftermath of the city’s first white Christmas in years, Real Housewives of Atlanta’s NeNe Leakes, Tiny & Toya’s Antonia Carter, and hundreds of tailgaters/partygoers showed up at the Georgia Freight Depot to cap off a celebration of the music and culture of both New Orleans and Atlanta prior to the final regular season matchup of hated division rival Saints and Falcons on NFL’s Monday Night Football. The Battle Of The Fans saw dueling DJ’s spun the soundtrack as Lil Wayne went toe to toe with Young Jeezy and T.I. and V.I.C. might have sponsored the world-record sized “Wobble.”
In addition to celebrating the matchup of these premiere teams in football, we gathered to remember the life of Chiquita “ChiQ Diva” Sims – also known as the “Goddess of PR” – who passed on Christmas Day. Her spirit was interlaced throughout the event as her sister Tamara, son Deshon aka DJ and loved ones pulled together to throw an event that was fit for a diva. BE Magazine’s ties to Chiq and DIVAdend Entertainment go back several years. We are saddened by her loss but were so overjoyed to already see that her legacy will be carried well by those who loved her.
To the Diva…we miss you already BEBE!
