Singer, Ashanti was expected to perform at Stony Brook University’s Back To Brook event later this month, but the show was canceled after selling only 24 tickets.
The school released a statement about the cancellation, writing:
“As an organization, we do our best to host programs for students while providing diversity and inclusion. However, we have struggled to execute certain aspects. With a week before the concert, only 24 tickets are sold to students.“
The school went on to explain they had originally booked Teyana Taylor for the gig but she pulled out last minute, leaving the organizers no time to properly promote Ashanti as the new headliner.
Currently, Ashanti is working on a joint album with frequent collaborator, Ja Rule.
