Gucci Mane and his fiancee, Keyshia Ka’oir, have their first reality show on the way…
Sources close to the BET show say the couple’s been filming everything in their lives leading up to their $1 million dollar wedding in October, including the planning for the big day which is set to go down in Miami.
Celebrity cameos are expected — Trina and Monica have already taped — and Gucci’s performance with Fifth Harmony at the VMAs later this month will be included too.
We broke the story … the rapper and his fiancee scored a fat contract for their BET show, which conveniently includes their wedding costs.
Before i start let me say that this is my post, my opinion and if you do not like what i have to say, get your own platform! Now that that is out the way……Ok BET, what happened to the red carpet event? I honestly look forward to that every year.
Overall, i enjoyed the awards and i think it was a great idea to bring some old and new artists for the cyphers. More cyphers than usual, BUT ima hip hop head so it’s cool. I expected Khaled to scream through the entire show but he didn’t and for that HE THE BEST! Not enough awards were given out..what happened to best collab, best video, best producer so on and so forth? I also would have like to see Rae Sremmurd perform but hey, there is always next year and i hope to be able to attend one of them very soon 😀
I see where they were going with the whole show by introducing us to a lot of new artists whose names have been buzzin’ thru the streets, but people were unsure of who they were. The awards were also about letting us know how powerful we were in the midst of all this police brutality, drug use and abuse, respecting ourselves and the importance of voting. Which in my opinion, honestly, do not matter because they both have their own agendas and don’t care about our communities and our youth. The US is in a tight situation with this election. I don’t trust any politician but just make sure that before you go off of the words of how other people feel, do your own research and build your knowledge from there. We can’t expect anyone to save us, we gotta save ourselves and change the world, build businesses and invest back into our own communities. BET will show awards 25,352 times over the next week so make sure you tune in if you missed it! AITE….
