It was suppose to be a night filled with R&B, but there were some hiccups. Musiq Soulchild, Lyfe Jennings and K. Michelle were booked to perform last night (September 30th) at the Straz Center, downtown Tampa, FL. Hosted by Vybe Nation and 95.7 The Beat, K. Michelle was tapped as the first major artist to take stage following performances from several local acts, but according to reports, Michelle didn’t like her placement.
According to The Record Pusher, K. Michelle decided not to come out because she didn’t want to perform before Lyfe Jennings. After a 45-minute delay, which included boos and organizers trying to convince the “Love and Hip Hop: Atlanta” star to take stage (see one clip here), Lyfe came out and gave the angry event-goers some soulful happiness. He also told the crowd that K. Michelle was backstage, but didn’t want to come out for some reason.
Following Lyfe’s set, K. Michelle was allegedly set to come out and at least say hi, but she reportedly left without doing so after fans began booing when they heard mentions of her name.
K. Michelle posted several tweets regarding the event before deleting them, while Lyfe Jennings on the other hand had something to say.
“This @kmichelle is so funny. She don’t wanna go on before me???? Before Lyfe??? Its cool i wish u the best love… We kilt it!!!” tweets Lyfe, who was also showing support for headliner Musiq Soulchild.
He adds: “Shout out to @musicsoulchild for being a hell of a performer AND a hell of a individual…im a fan of the real…period.”
