TV weddings have guaranteed high ratings for networks everywhere. From Kim and Khloe Kardashian’s elaborate wedding specials to their now exes to the most recently talked about all-white knot-tying ceremony of Keyshia Ka’oir to Gucci Mane — viewers tuned in making massive numbers. Now that the new hip-hop royalty couple, Cardi B and Offset, have announced their plans to marry — BET and VH1 are in competition to make a deal with them.
Cardi B started out as a social media star who went from making popular videos on Instagram to completing two seasons of “Love and Hip Hop: New York.” After leaving the show, she went on to sign a record deal and top charts with “Bodak Yellow.”
Offset, on the other hand, doesn’t have a TV background at all. The member of number one rap group Migos is currently busy with preparing for the release of their new album, that features Cardi B, titled “Culture 2.”
When the “Bad and Boujee” musician proposed in front of thousands at Powerhouse, stans of the couple went crazy. In true internet culture, a Twitter user thought up a name for a wedding special to be titled “Never Let Migo.”
When The Shade Room posted a screenshot of the idea the BET Instagram account commented: “@iamcardib @offsetyrn – #wegotyou when you ready!”
“Love and Hip Hop” mastermind, Mona Scott Young, fired back with her own proposal stating: “Love ya @BET but $wegotthis. #anothercheckfrommonascott @vh1 #4evah!”
It looks like the two networks are going head-to-head to see who can air the next most anticipated celebrity wedding!
Naturally, you would expect the couple to choose VH1 since that’s where Cardi got her big break; however, she left the series because of how the producers were portraying her meaning that there could possibly be bad blood between Cardi and the channel.
On the other hand, since this special would be surrounding the couple, it would mean that the rap songstress would be able to play executive producer and have things the way that she wants it so VH1 still has a fighting chance to be chosen.
No one even knows if Cardi and Offset even want to air their vows, but if they chose to it would be a brilliant financial move.
They could choose for it to be a one-time thing or follow in the footsteps of Keyshia and Gucci and make their own spin-off series.
Do you think that the engaged pair should have a TV wedding?
