The Verzuz battle between Ashanti & Keyshia Cole was highly anticipated and netted impressive viewership. But those numbers weren’t without criticism directed at Cole for what some discerned as a less than ideal demeanor. Fans who stayed loyal after two postponements (due to Ashanti’s Covid-19 diagnoses) weren’t too pleased with the “I Changed My Mind” singers tardiness nor mannerisms. Now the ASCAP award winner is speaking out.
“I want to apologize for not sitting my *ss in that seat. OK? Because I was there and I should’ve sat down. I should’ve just sat in the seat no matter if I felt like the visual wasn’t clear…they said my music wasn’t gonna be right or whatever it was.” Keyshia continued “I think more so than anything people wanted me to sit be present…even though they didn’t know that I was present.”
Cole’s DJ GoDJ Hi–C preceded this statement with his own saying “She didn’t wanna come out cause her screen was blurry.” She was there on time. I seen everything. She was there, but she didn’t wanna come out because the screen was blurry and stuff wasn’t right, you know. We couldn’t hear Ashanti’s side so it was a lot of technical stuff going on here.”
Keyshia Cole also took the post VERZUZ time to promote her new song being released on February 5.
