The Trini rapper and Juice WRLD are the headlining act on the tour, and neither of the two rappers were able to take the stage. This is the second tour date she is forced to cancel over technical difficulties.
The canceled show angered Nicki Minaj fans to the extent that they started chanting Cardi B name and boos echoed throughout the arena. If you’re Nicki Minaj, the scene in the video below will devastate you.
“You guys, it’s not in my best interest not to perform and lose money and aggravate my fans,” she said in a video posted on her Instagram. “I love performing for my fans. I’m more excited than you are before the show. These two cities that had technical issues were cities that I had never been to before, and we tried to add them, but they just didn’t have the power in the building to facilitate my show.”
She noted at the end of the video that every artist has technical difficulties on their shows, and she is correct.
While she is getting a lot of love from her loyal fans, some other fans have been attacking her. They have been expressing their anger and frustration in the comments. “This is why you’re losing fans to Cardi B because is sh*t like this sis, we waited hours just to get inside and that’s when we going to find out the show is canceled I’ll be requesting a refund asap,” one fan wrote.
Why would an artist cancel a show & lose money? What for? When they’re already in the building, dressed, etc. The artist is just as mad as the fans when a show can’t go on. I love seeing my fans. Nothing can stop me. B4 the show, juice WRLD & I are just as excited as u guys are.
