As we commemorate 50 years of Soul Train, I’m proud to be a part of this legacy and to return to the Apollo to celebrate.”

    Lady of Soul? Ashanti? Out of every other artist they could have picked, they chose Ashanti?

    • yup! November 2, 2021

      Yea and well deserved.

    • Lmfao_Hoe November 2, 2021

      Yeah like no shade but really? and ‘” Because I received Aretha Franklin Entertainer of the Year’ Award at the Lady of Soul Awards in 2002. “…she didn’t have that much out at the time for such a award but whatever.

      • Shayla Queen™ 👑 November 2, 2021

        It makes no sense to me.

      • Beloved November 2, 2021

        OMG I was very young but I specifically remember there being a petition about her receiving that award. It had over 30K signatures lol.

  2. Hmm ok November 2, 2021

    Lol I remember the controversy back in 2002, when she received the prestigious Aretha Franklin award at the (Soul Train) Lady Of Soul Awards. I’m surprised the Soul Train Awards is giving her this award in 2002. Congrats to her she hasn’t release a studio album since 2014.

    • Hmm ok November 2, 2021

    Her career came and went. A few cute songs. She just didn’t have the range. Beyonce ended her.

    • Shayla Queen™ 👑 November 2, 2021

      After Crazy in Love dropped, it was pretty much a wrap for Ashanti.

      • Monica Stan November 2, 2021

        Normani ended UGGmillia

    • D.C November 2, 2021

      Sorry to break it to you but only Beyonce fans think that At the time chapter II literally knocked Dangerously in love off the #1 spot and stayed at #1 longer plus Bey had more promo and a bigger budget Ashanti next album was a platinum seller Murder inc was literally being shut down the label lost money and sponsors nobody from the label recovered can’t really credit Beyonce with Asahnti down fall that stats don’t match
