A DJ was involved in an unpardonable gaffe when he inadvertently referred to Cardi B as Nicki Minaj, despite knowing fully well that the two are sworn enemies.
Per the account shared online, the rapper came into the club with her husband Offset during which the DJ played Minaj’s song with Fivio Foreign, “Do We Have a Problem,” twice and even shouted out Nicki Minaj.
“Shoutout to Nicki Minaj in the motherf*cking building. Let’s go,” he said, playing another one of Nicki’s tunes. He then played the Fivio Foreign collaboration.
Cardi B became upset instantly and confronted the DJ. “Who’s in the building tonight?” she asked the crowd, which shouted out her name.
“We with all the fing smoke you heard,” Cardi said. She then turned her attention directly to the host asking, “We getting dangerous tonight? DJ are we getting fing dangerous tonight? F**k outta here,” she said before throwing the mic to the side as the DJ began playing her platinum-selling single “WAP.”
The DJ then offered an apology saying his goof was not deliberate at all.
“Last night in the club, a promoter/manager passed me along information to shout out and unknowingly I ran with it. I never meant any disrespect to Cardi B, Offset, their friends, family or fans in any way, shape or form,” he read a statement he prepared.
“It was an honest mistake and I feel horrible about it. Normally, that’s something I would never do I always check and double-check information but I was caught up in what I thought was a hip hop moment. I accept my responsibility for what happened and send my heartfelt apologies to Cardi B and Offset. I meant no malice, it was no set-up, I was there to rock the party,” he added.
