Various celebrities and hair brands descended upon Atlanta this weekend to participate in the annual Mid-Winter Bronner Bros. Hair Show. Actor/comedian Marlon Wayans, R&B singer Bobby Valentino, So So Def’s Dondria and singer/”R&B Divas Atlanta” star Latavia Roberson all stopped by the Strength of Nature booth to get a glimpse of their newest product, the Beautiful Textures Reversible™ Straightening Texture Manageability™ System.
In town promoting his upcoming horror spoof A Haunted House 2, Marlon spent the day at the Bronner Hair Show yesterday participating in an autograph-signing, doing interviews at the UPSCALE booth and touring the exhibit hall floor. The writer/producer ended his day at Twelve Atlantic Station at a press reception where over 80 journalists grilled the funnyman on the Oscars, his family legacy and what viewers can expect from A Haunted House 2 (in theaters April 18).
Marlon Wayans ended his Atlanta press tour yesterday with a visit to Clark-Atlanta University. The A Haunted House 2 star attended a Meet & Greet and autograph-signing that drew a crowd of over 400 students. The event was hosted by student Ta’Kaiya Jackson, who gave away screening tickets, screened the movie trailer, and led the audience in a Wayans trivia game.
Upon his arrival, the students went into a social media frenzy. Marlon opened his remarks by letting the students know how honored he was to be in the room, and followed up with a joke about being denied acceptance into the university. Student comedian Terrance White surprised Marlon with a brief stand-up routine, which was followed by an hour of autographs. Before leaving campus, Marlon conducted interviews with campus media outlets WSTU, WCLK, CAU-TV and the CAU Panther.
