Azealia Banks Claims Nicki Minaj Shuts Down Her Planned TV Show

In an Instagram Story post, the controversial raptress accuses the ‘Super Freaky Girl’ femcee of threatening a network to not proceed with the project that was previously in the works.

AceShowbizAzealia Banks initially had a TV show planned but it fell through. The controversial raptress blames Nicki Minaj for it, accusing the “Super Freaky Girl” femcee of shutting down the project that was previously in the works.

The “Anna Wintour” raptress took to Instagram Story on Tuesday, August 23 to share with fans about what to expect next from the pop rap artist. “I was supposed to start filming a reality show last month. But apparently Nicki gave the network an ultimatum because she knows I’ll have much better ratings,” so Azealia wrote on her post.

She went on to say, “and now they all hate her and thinks she’s ghetto, terrible to work with, overweight and boring. But I’ve got three more offers in the inbox.”

Azealia then followed it up with a short, cryptic message in a separate post. “Ok so the Azealia Banks reality tv show is happening. I’m excited. FINALLY people get to see the real me: an a**hole,” so she teased.

Nicki, meanwhile, has yet to comment on the allegations.

The “Bang Bang” hitmaker probably won’t have time to respond as she’s busy celebrating her new milestone. “Super Freaky Girl” bowed at No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart, becoming the first hip-hop single by a solo female artist without accompaniment to debut atop the chart since 1998.

The 39-year-old rapper is also the first star to achieve such success since Lauryn Hill, with “Doo Wop (That Thing)” 24 years ago. According to Luminate, “Super Freaky Girl” hit 21.1 million streams, 4.6 million radio airplay audience impressions, and 89,000 downloads in its first week following the tune’s August 12th release.

Nicki later thanked her husband Kenneth Petty for giving her surprise to celebrate the success of her new single, “Super Freaky Girl”. On Tuesday, she shared a video of her son Papa Bear playing with pink balloons that spelled out the song’s title and “#1.” She also attached footage of a bouquet of pink flowers courtesy of her Republic Records team as well as bottles of pink champagne.

“Zoo was trying to surprise me with this for hours but I kept on having to do just one last thing b4 leaving out,” Nicki first kicked off her caption. “By the time I came out it was dark outside, but it actually looked so beautiful in the dark.”
