American R&B singer Ashanti may have sold over 27 million records but a group of fans didn’t care when she announced that she was holding a concert at New York’s Stony Brook University. The former Murder Inc artiste only managed to sell 24 tickets.
With tracks like Foolish, What’s Luv and Always On Time; Ashanti was one of the biggest stars in the 2000’s- becoming the Guinness World Record holder for the fastest-selling debut female album. Her 2002 album Ashanti sold 503,000 copies in the first week. Along with collaborators Ja Rule and Fat Joe, Ashanti commanded the airwaves bigly. Until this past weekend.
Scheduled to replace Teyana Taylor at the school’s Back To Brook concert, Ashanti got little promotion, leading to a mere two dozen tickets sold.
The university’s statement after the cancellation reads in part “As an organization, we do our best to host programs for students while providing diversity and inclusion. However, we have struggled to execute certain aspects. With only a week before the concert, only 24 tickets were sold to students.”
The defunct label’s archenemy 50 Cent has already taken to Instagram to mock Ashanti and Ja Rule saying, “Ashanti show cancelled after only 24 tickets sold.🤦♂️wait a minute,🤔l thought l told everybody not to fuck with this fool.”

Nigerian OAP, Daddy Freeze has weighed in on the current Jeff Bezos scandal and according to him, 90 percent of Nigerian men are like Jeff.
He went on to say that the only problem is they pray a lot more and earn substantially less.
“Many of the married women bashing Bezos, including wives of pastors, are probably being cheated upon right now as we speak. The sad thing is that if their husbands leave them, most won’t smell 140,000 naira let alone half of a $140 billion fortune.”
Some of you husbands forming holy holy. I’m fasting for 40days with my ‘G’ Hoe while your wives and girlfriends are enjoying the taste of Asiwaju, God himself will expose you all.
I NEVER support cheating in a relationship and I don’t cheat, but worse than cheating is hypocrisy, I have zero tolerance for that.
So, if your husband has never cheated on you, or you have never cheated on your wife before, feel free to cast the first stone at Bezos, if not, please do the world a favor and STFU!
