On Sunday, November 25th, the annual Soul Train was held to celebrates the genre of R&B. One of the innovative additions to the modern Soul Train awards is the R&B cypher. But not everyone agreed with the some of the R&B singers that were chosen to participate in the celebration. Songstress Lil Mo vocalist threw major shade Queen Naija over her performance during the cypher, which she appeared alongside BJ the Chicago Kid, Luke James, Erykah Badu and Kelly price.
Lil Mo went out of her way to go on Instagram to call out Queen Naija for just being another “pretty girl” and using her pregnancy as an excuse for not singing at the bottom of her pit. She compares Queen Naija to other YouTube artists who look good but lacks longevity in their careers because they don’t work on their craft. You can read her deleted post below:

Queen Naija responded on Twitter
Word of advice from a young singer just now entering into the music industry, to VETS who’ve been in this game, ENCOURAGEMENT goes a long way. Someone could look up to you and adore you & you can completely ruin their view of you by speaking down on them.

Lil Mo really shot down Queen Naija to hype up Yebba…. Like Yebba is undeniably talented but damn, y’all are still supporting white soul singers over your own.
