Justin Timberlake to climb Mount Kilimanjaro

Lupe Fiasco and Kenna also taking on African climb

Justin Timberlake is set to climb Tanzania’s Mount Kilimanjaro to raise awareness for the worldwide water crisis.

Rappers Lupe Fiasco and Kenna will also climb the mountain. The mission has a special meaning for Kenna as he told Elle that his father almost died after contracting a waterborne disease as a child.

He also said that he is feeling competitive with Timberlake as they prepare for the climb, saying: “I refuse to work out with him, because he’s way fitter than I am. I’m training in secret.”


The trio will take on the challenge in the fall, according to MTV News.
