Cardi B’s former manager, Shaft, is suing her for $10 million claiming that he transformed her from a social media sensation into a star.
Shaft (real name Klenord Raphael) says he showed Bardi the ins and outs of the game, and also orchestrated her role on Love and Hip Hop. Additionally, he claims that his personal team of songwriters and producers are responsible for her life-changing, hit record, “Bodak Yellow.”
Shaft blamed her make up artist/publicist for turning the Bronx native against him.
Since discovering Cardi B in 2015, Shaft has played an integral role in developing her music career and public image. While he is proud of their successful collaborations as she evolved from Instagram influencer to music megastar, Shaft is disappointed by her actions to freeze him out of her career, which are detailed in the complaint, he told TMZ.
