American rapper, Cardi B who left Nigeria for Ghana on Sunday, has been embroiled in a trail of controversies with Ghanaian celebrities who accused her of snubbing them at a meet and greet event arranged by the organisers of Livespot X Festival.
Cardi B was reportedly meant to meet some of the celebrities in Ghana during her visit which didn’t happen. This, however, didn’t go down well with them as they took to their social media pages to call her out.
Wendy Shay wrote: “So you guys called us to come have a one on one lunch date with @iamcardib and she has been chewing kebab for 7 hours in her room without showing up.
“What do you guys take Ghana celebrities for? This can never happen in Nigeria. Wake up Ghana! She is Cardi B and I am WENDY SHAY!”

In a video, Afia Schwarzenegger narrated how organisers asked them to come meet Cardi B, but just wasted their time by asking them to wait until 8:30 pm while the American rapper literally chewed kebab at the poolside.
“The cheap, talentless, fame-less celebrities, they need it. They can do it. I am Afia Schwarzenegger,” she said.

However, Cardi B has responded to the claims by some Ghanaians that she purposely ignored them during her visit to the country.
She said the reason why she couldn’t meet with the celebrities in Ghana was because of a running stomach. She wrote:
“My stomach is messed up. Bitch, I have some m**derf**ker diarrhea. Don’t know what the f**k I ate, what I drank, my stomach is messed up. Y’all thought I was f**king canceling people? I don’t do that life. Ghanaians were for coming for me saying I was lying and all that shit, saying I was trying to act Hollywood. No bitch my stomach fucked up! I know i don’t play that shit. Now let me finish taking this shit…they said I was lying! My stomach is really messed up… I respect people, my stomach was messed up…I’ll talk to you guys later, bye.”

A lot of people have been reacting to the incident on Twitter. Some of the celebrities have been trolled for calling out Cardi B, a situation that has made the music star’s visit to Ghana trend on Twitter.

Cardi B is actually nicer than I thought. That's such a respectful response. I didn't think she would even see this let alone respond. Credit to her. Clearly, there was a massive misunderstanding. She didn't even know they were there. #CardiBInAccra pic.twitter.com/xd1c74aRFa

The cause of this whole Cardi b saga is NIGERIA.
If Cardi just performed and left Nigeria, Ghanaians won't be this pissed.
They're angry cos Cardi was with Nigerian celebrities and didn't give them time ?.#CardiBInAccra

Cardi B came to Nigeria and had so much fun with our celebrities.
Cardi B went to Ghana and they are forcing her to hang out their Instagram influencers.
Pride did not allow them call Don Jazzy to release Rema for them.#CardiBInAccra
