Ciara Named New Co-Owner of Ten To One Rum

Published: Monday 4th Oct 2021 by Sam

Ciara is growing her empire exponentially.

For, fresh from making a splash in the fashion sphere with LITA by Ciara, the superstar singer has announced her newest business venture: becoming the co-owner of Ten To One rum.

Full story below…

It’s been revealed that CiCi has become both an investor and co-owner of the rising brand alongside its founder and CEO Marc Farrell.

Hailing from Trinidad, Farrell notably served as one of the youngest Vice Presidents of Starbucks.

The name of the brand borrows from a quote given by Dr. Eric Williams, Trinidad and Tobago’s first Prime Minister when discussing the first Caribbean federation of 10 countries: He said “One from ten leaves zero” – relaying the notion that we are stronger together than apart.

Speaking on the venture with Farrell (who she met through family and friends), the performer said:

“When I get a chance to do things and projects like this, I’m pretty involved. I look a step before the actual product to work with really great business partners. For me all the boxes were checked. This is a space that not too many women occupy, and I saw a tremendous opportunity as an entrepreneur, and as a woman of color.” 

Ciara’s role will see her hone in on marketing, creative and business development, as well as savvy strategic partnerships:

“Whenever Marc talks about how the rum is created and the origin of it, it makes you want to taste it. I look forward to learning more and educating others along the way about the beauty of rum, and to inspire people to reimagine rum from what they’ve known it to be years ago.”

Farrell added:

“It’s so dope to have a partner like Ciara. When you start on a journey to create a brand, and bring a vision to life, there are core values you want the consumer to appreciate, and you’re trying to tell that story. It’s as much about the soul of the Caribbean, it’s optimism, spontaneity and joie de vivre, but also about reimagining and challenging the status quo. This is the beginning of a new chapter to take it to another level … We’re taking pieces of the story and bringing it to a whole new audience.”

More power to her!

    Her ancestors were sold for rum! But I reckon anybody who buys those hideous clothes of hers needs a bottle. Should create and/ or invest in a lying mirror next. 👀

    • FAF October 4, 2021

      If u can’t afford to walk through Nordstrom without shop lifting just say that

  3. Shayla Queen™ 👑 October 4, 2021

    Ciara can’t even sell her own records so I doubt her image will encourage someone to buy this particular rum.

    • Aj October 4, 2021

      Yet she stay collecting coin and investing while you stay pressed sat in your two chair couch eating frozen yoghurt spouting viterol and hate.

      • Shayla Queen™ 👑 October 4, 2021

        *vitriol. Listen to spell. Also, what I said makes perfect business sense but all you think about are someone else’s “coins” as you don’t have your own and wouldn’t know how to make any or you’d understand my initial point.

      • Shayla Queen™ 👑 October 4, 2021

        *vitriol. Learn to spell. Also, what I said makes perfect business sense but all you think about are someone else’s “coins” as you don’t have your own and clearly don’t know how to make any or you’d understand my initial point.

      • Aj October 4, 2021

        Oh whatever gurl

  5. “GG” October 4, 2021

    She stay getting checks and you h*** are mad about it !!!!

    • Shayla Queen™ 👑 October 4, 2021

      No one cares about the checks.

      • True Tea October 4, 2021

        Hun everyone cares about the checks.

      • Shayla Queen™ 👑 October 4, 2021

        Yes, their own, not anybody else’s.

  6. True Tea October 4, 2021

    I can’t hate on a woman getting coins without a need to slurp d***, so congrats Ciara. Girls take notes, this is how you secure the bag. I know Ciara has a lot of haters but that certainly doesn’t matter when you have steady income & live comfortably.

    • Shayla Queen™ 👑 October 4, 2021

      Are they your coins? No. So why do you care?

      • True Tea October 4, 2021

        Because I’m only here to congrats Ciara.

      • Shayla Queen™ 👑 October 4, 2021

        And I was only here to make a point from a business perspective, that if someone can’t sell their own product based off of their brand and image, by what logic does attaching said brand and image to your product going to do to increase sales? And all responses were about Ciara making coins and saying I’m a hater. My point was perfectly logical and easy to understand, even for the mentally impaired.

      • True Tea October 4, 2021

        And your logic is flawed. It’s very possible for an individual to be more successful in one venture & less successful in another. So based on your logic, Ciara shouldnt get involved in business simply because her music career has stalled? That is your reasoning although we have countless examples of rappers who can’t sell music but are successful business men now.

      • Shayla Queen™ 👑 October 4, 2021

        “It’s very possible for an individual to be more successful in one venture & less successful in another.” Yet this isn’t her venture or her product.

      • True Tea October 4, 2021

        Yet you will retire on minimum wage income since you have the time to sit online worrying about another b**** salary

        Trust her FLOP careers will draw in more coins you’ll ever see in your lifetime but you’re a Queen, right? lol

        The jokes write themselves.

      • Shayla Queen™ 👑 October 4, 2021

        “…sit online worrying about another b**** salary.” That’s you. Talking about her “coins” this, her “coins” that, living vicariously through a celebrity, but I guess anyone who really is on “minimum wage income since you have the time to sit online worrying about another b**** salary” needs to daydream in order to forget that sometimes. Especially when all they do is throw presumptions around about anyone else’s wage. You really are pressed and defend celebrities’ wealth as though it’s your own, which is how I KNOW you’re the broke b****. Now that’s that true tea, hunnie! lmaoooooooooo 🤣💯💋

      • Shayla Queen™ 👑 October 4, 2021

        “Trust her FLOP careers will draw in more coins you’ll ever see in your lifetime” but YOU won’t lmaoooooooooo 🤣

      • True Tea October 4, 2021

        Again I came here to say congrats. You’re here questioning her businesses moves & whether she’ll be successful.

        You’re projecting. Don’t change the narrative now. Just know that a so called FLOP will not be retiring on minimum wage income like you’ll be doing.

      • Shayla Queen™ 👑 October 4, 2021

        Again, I came here to question the business plan. And also again, you’re worrying about and defending her coins like they’re your very own. Broke b**** alert indeed, or you wouldn’t daydream that her coins are your own.

      • True Tea October 4, 2021

        Correcting your flawed logic isn’t me worrying about her coins. You came here to slander her NEW source of income, I came here to say congrats…a word that isn’t in a broke b*tches vocabulary. Again you’re projecting.

      • Shayla Queen™ 👑 October 4, 2021

        I didn’t “slander” her new source of income, I said she won’t bring the company much, if any, revenue. Where is the lie? You came here to defend her as though it’s your own business venture, projecting as if it’s your own life. Sad hunnie. Very sad indeed.

      • Shayla Queen™ 👑 October 4, 2021

        Add to that, you’re a hypocrite. When I defended music that has more substance than just ass and pu$$y, you said I was “viciously attacking.” But when you defend someone’s alleged “coins,” you’re not “viciously attacking?”

      • Shayla Queen™ 👑 October 4, 2021

        What you’re actually saying is, the world MUST be seen by EVERYONE through YOUR lens and your lens ONLY. There’s those delusions of grandeur and that God complex again.

      • True Tea October 4, 2021

        “Where is the lie”?

        Where is the truth? You have no evidence to back up your claims. You asssume she can’t be successful based off flawed logic you have put forward, thus the reason I commented NOT because I stan Ciara. You seem to have difficultly understanding this.

        You do not defend music with more substance… You viclously attack & even use racial undertones against anyone who doesn’t like Taylor Swift’s music. So expect a Swift backlash.

        Girl you are NOT someone who care about so called good music…You TRIED IT!!!

      • Shayla Queen™ 👑 October 4, 2021

        “You viclously attack & even use racial undertones against anyone who doesn’t like Taylor Swift’s music.”

        I used “racial undertones?!” I had responded not only to “racial undertones” but pure hate of white women. So here you go again being a HYPOCRITE. Why did you come for ME for responding to such disgusting hate, yet didn’t respond to the hate? Oh that’s right, because you’re a racist b**** who’s jealous of white women. Here’s what I’d responded to, you hypocritical trash.

        “Boring basic overhyped white privileged trash. If she wasn’t a wide set eyed flat chested blond haired pale gal with no talent or ass she wouldn’t be as popular as she is. She resonates with the vast majority of ugly no body having wyte girls..I can’t relate, I’m who’re with hips hunny!! I relate to Iggy more. That’s a real b*tch sweetie ! 💋💅🏼”

        So you won’t respond to hate against someone just because they’re white but you WILL respond to someone who does, and also to someone saying Ciara may not bring in much coins, which is an INNOCENT observation, because she happens to be black.

      • Shayla Queen™ 👑 October 4, 2021

        Also, when I get racial hate for being biracial like being called a “half breed,” expect me to respond with “racial undertones” to you hating b****** by telling you you’re just jealous that I’m not an ashy b**** like the rest of you. So, on that note, keep hating white women, biracial women, but that won’t help you love YOURSELF.

        PS. moisturize.

      • Shayla Queen™ 👑 October 4, 2021

        “You viclously attack & even use racial undertones against anyone who doesn’t like Taylor Swift’s music”

        Again, hypocritical when the post I resorted to was a RACIAL post full of hate. Also, “back up your claims” that I respond “against anyone who doesn’t like Taylor Swift’s music.” That’s right, you can’t, because I don’t and I’m not really much of a fan, but I do congratulate her REAL achievements and record-breaking accomplishments, not someone putting their flop face that no one hears of on a flop Rum brand that no one has ever heard of.

      • Shayla Queen™ 👑 October 4, 2021

        *the post I RESPONDED to was a RACIAL post full of hate

      • True Tea October 4, 2021

        Again You TRIED IT!!! Many people on this site have made racist comments about Black celebrities but I don’t respond because their comment is usually directed toward the specific invidual NOT a whole group.

        You on the other hand often make racist comments about a whole entire group. Even when the topic isn’t about Taylor.

        Hun I go in on anyone regardless of race or s/e/x/u/a/l/i/t/y but I never speak badly about a whole entire group of people simply because I like or dislike a certain celebrity.

      • Shayla Queen™ 👑 October 4, 2021

        Re-read the post because YOU tried it. I’m not going back and forth worth with you all day like opposing gang members in the hood so let’s just agree to disagree.

      • True Tea October 4, 2021

        Good! You certainly can’t keep up dear & as an openly racist invidual like yourself who proudly admits to fighting racism with racism, you are in no position to label someone racist. Come see me when you have your house in order.

      • Shayla Queen™ 👑 October 4, 2021

        My house may not be FULLY in order but didn’t I, as you say “openly” admit that? Maybe YOU need to admit that you’re living in a house of cards.

      • True Tea October 4, 2021

        Admit what? I never said anything racists about Taylor or you for that matter although you referred to black people as “ashy” b*tches. Since you’re allegedly mixed race, that means you must see view one of your parents as “ashy” also.

      • Shayla Queen™ 👑 October 4, 2021

        My mom doesn’t get ashy or at least I’ve never seen it, but thanks for your concern.

      • Shayla Queen™ 👑 October 4, 2021

        And once again you’re twisting my words. You enjoy doing that, don’t you? Because if you didn’t, your point wouldn’t exist. I refer to someone’s skin in a negative way in response to them referring to mine in a negative way. “Half breed” is so much worse than “ashy b****.” If someone calls me a “skinny b****,” I call her a “fat b****.” Don’t say like you’ve never had an argument and retaliate, “Miss Angelic,” as you’ve been doing so for most of the day.

    • True True October 4, 2021

      There is no retaliation. We’re having a simple discussion. Nothing more…nothing less. I have no racial hate toward you or anyone here. How you respond to negativity is your choice but you’re labeling me a racist is…FALSE! I come here strictly for TEA & gossip.

      • True Tea October 4, 2021

        Miss Angelic? lol My comments on this site does not say Miss Angelic. In fact my comments are far from innocent.

        I have left some very mean comments behind. Not once I ever claimed to be a champion for women, a role model or anything of that nature.

  7. Ugghh October 4, 2021

    A fat flop! You ain’t Beyoncé nor Rihanna sweetie.

  8. Keeping it real 💯💯 October 4, 2021

    Kudos to her. This exactly what normani needs to do pursue other endeavors

  9. Shayla Queen™ 👑 October 4, 2021

    You can all talk about someone else’s coins all you want, they will never be your’s 💋

  10. YAHOSHUA IS COMING October 5, 2021

    LITA? Incoming Lawsuit by the former WWE Wreslter, Lita lol
