Grammy Awards 2019: Cardi B deletes Instagram account following backlash for winning best rap album

The 61st edition of the Grammy Awards took place on Sunday, February 10, 2019, with many international music stars gracing the highly coveted award show.

Legit.ng had gathered a report that highlighted the list of all the big winners that went home smiling with an award recognition for their talent and hard work.

Among one of the most anticipated categories of the night was the Best Rap Album of the Year, which was taken home by female rapper, Cardi B, for her Invasion of Privacy album.

The rapper’s win was, however, not taken well by many on social media as they had claimed that the category was only deserving of industry rival, Nicky Minaj.

The heavy backlash had, however, gotten to Cardi B, as she took to social media in a video where she bashed everyone that had negative comments to pass across regarding her award recognition.

In the video, she cried out that it was not her style to bring down a person in the effort to uplift someone else. She added that she had stomached a lot of unsavory comments and could not put up with it anymore.

The Money crooner said she put in a lot of hard work while recording the album, emphasizing that she was also pregnant as at the time of hitting the studio to record Invasion of Privacy.

She expressed her surprise at the development as she had made a brief recount of how many had cried out when her hit song, Bodak Yellow, was snubbed at the awards in 2018, but her win this year is now turning out to be a problem for the same people.

In a following development, the international rapper has now deleted her account on popular social media platform, Instagram.

A search for her username on the platform yields results of many fan pages as opposed to her verified account.

However, a search on micro-blogging platform, Twitter, shows that the rapper still has an active account.

In other news, Legit.ng had previously gathered the report of Nigerian singer, Seun Kuti, who had taken to social media with an apology to his fans, for missing his Grammy performance. The singer had explained that it was due to a mix-up with his flight tickets.
