Ashanti Slams Fans Throwing Money At Her During Concert


While putting on a show for fans in Hawaii on Saturday, Ashanti stopped mid-song to slam a group of fans for making it rain on her while she performed a choreographed lap dance.

Peep the moment via the clip below.

“I’m gonna need you to stop throwing that money,” Ashanti can be heard saying to a fan in the crowd after calling for the music to stop. “I’m not a f—–g stripper, okay?”

The fans were reportedly employees of a nearby strip club called Ballarrina, TMZ reported.

In an IG post, the owner — Dyamin Thomas — said … “WAIT Ashanti ain’t that you in your background video throwing money? And aren’t you giving a lap dance? Lmfao .. she ain’t say nothing to me but you gonna pick on the small white boy lol my Dj? Damn.”

Watch below:

Ashanti and Ja Rule performed over the weekend at the Neal S. Blaisdell Center in Honolulu. Ja seemed more than happy about the extra dough onstage. Not as happy as his DJ, though.

Would you believe this isn’t the first time Ashanti has admonished her audience. Back in June of this year we reported this incident:


*Ashanti had no problem stopping her performance cold and using colorful language to express her frustration at a gig in San Luis Obispo, Calif. on Thursday when something went wrong with her video screen.

According to TMZ, the singer kicked off the R&B Jam Series at the Alex Madonna Expo Center and was mid-performance of “Baby” when she suddenly stopped the show and ordered the video board turned off.

“What the f*** they doing back there?” she said into the mic.

“See what I feel like is, everybody in here paid their hard earned money to get in this mother f**ker tonight, so we are here to put on a mother f**ing good show.”

Ashanti’s rep later told TMZ that a technical issue with the screen caused interference in her earbuds and was throwing off her choreography.
