Ashanti to receive ❝Lady of Soul❞ honor at ❝Soul Train Awards.❞ Soul heads are not happy...

The Soul Train Awards has announced that Ashanti will be this year's ❝Lady of Soul,❞ 
honoree and soul fans are fuming.
Back in 2002, Ashanti became the subject of controversy when it was announced 
that she would receive the Soul Train Aretha Franklin Award for Entertainer of the Year. 
The controversy generated a massive online petition arguing that she was unworthy of the honor. Fans don't think she deserves this honor because she is not a real soul artist and feel it is a kick in the teeth to soul sistas like Jill Scott and India Arie. The issue is, Ashanti had some cute songs in her heyday (not ground-breaking) and she knew how to write a hit. However, her music is far from soulful and she is not that great a vocalist or performer. Besides, are people really still upset about the Soul Train Awards in 2021? Puhlease. They have as much credibility as the Teen Choice Awards, and their honors mean absolutely NOTHING. The ceremony takes place at New York’s Apollo Theater on November 28th. Will YOU be tuning in? Yours Truly on the other hard? That will be a hard pass...

Listen..I'm all for Ashanti getting her flowers for her contribution to music. At least she wasn't lip singing to someone else's vocals (*cough* J-Lo) and she wrote her own songs (unlike *cough* J-Lo))
