Jigga is featured on one of Vanity Fair magazine’s amazing 20 covers for their current issue (pictured here with George Clooney; an issue guest edited by U2′s Bono and focused on Africa.
The issue is a collector’s item, and cover stars were chosen because of their various involvement with the cause.
