After Gucci Mane’s recent wedding, it’s obvious, monetizing your wedding is the thing to do.
Two prominent cable channels are already jockeying for the right to air Cardi B and Offset’s marriage. The couple’s recent engagement has put Hip Hop-friendly networks on high alert, as seen on social media.
BET made its intentions clear on Instagram by commenting on a joke post about a TV special for the Hip Hop power couple. Television producer Mona Scott-Young, the mastermind behind much of VH1’s reality programming, was quick to counter though, offering up her own deal to air Cardi and Offset’s nuptials.
“@iamcardib @offsetyrn – #WeGotYou when you ready!” BET’s official account wrote on Instagram. But Scott-Young wasn’t having it, responding, “Love ya @BET but #WeGotThis #AnotherCheckFromMonaScott @VH1 #4Evah!”
Will Cardi stick with the “home team” or did Gucci Mane’s recent wedding special give BET a leg up in the race? There’s also the possibility that Cardi and Offset have no desire to air their ceremony on TV. Only time will tell.
