Grammy winning gospel songstress Le’andria Johnson set the net ablaze hours ago when messages were lifted to her Twitter slamming Music World Gospel label head/famed manager Matthew Knowles (father of pop superstar Beyonce) for being a “crook”.
The original message (which has now been removed) was accompanied with a phone number soliciting media requests for interviews. As word quickly spread across the Web and courted the attention of secular and gospel outlets alike, it appears the ‘Sunday Best’ champion’s team is trying to shut down the story.
