Fans of Xscape are going into a frenzy after a photo surfaced showing SWV diva Cheryl “Coko” Clemons posing with LaTocha Scott and Tameka “Tiny” Harris.
Everyone is asking one question — is the mega-talented Coko going to replace Kandi Burruss who is planning to leave the group after The Great Xscape Tour is over?
The picture features LaTocha looking classy in an all-black outfit with her blonde hair cascading on her shoulder.
Coko took on the role of the fashionista in an exquisite red sweater, matching boots, Chanel purse, and skinny jeans.
As for Tiny, she kept it very casual and chic in a pink top, jeans, and boots.
The ladies look very friendly with each other which begs the question again — will the R&B songstress step in and replace Burruss’ vocals on Xscape’s forthcoming album?
Tiny did not respond to the flood of questions; she simply captioned the picture: “When your girl @cokoclemons comes to show Love & support! Real 90’s r&b was all in the building last night!! #SWV&Xscape #90sGirlGroups #90sR&B.”
One fan said that Coko is a very gifted vocalist and she would fit right in.
Another explained that Coko is from the same era and masters the music industry and would be a perfect addition because they were tired of The Real Housewives of Atlanta‘s constant complaining and weak performances anyway.
A few supporters decided to defend Burruss by saying that she was part of the group since it was created and out of respect for all the songwriting and hours of work she has put it in, she should not be replaced with Coko no matter how talented and gifted she might be.
A person, who joined the debate, said: “Wait huh? Coko is taking Kandi place??Ooh chile, this pic got some beautiful, talented singing sistas right here!”
Another claimed: “I see Coko cut her nails down only true fan knows what I’m talking about…dam you guys are timeless. She would fit right in Xscape. TIRE of Kandi. Lol”
A third commenter stated: “You wonderful three! The epitome of not just 90s R&B… But REAL R&B. Thankful for you! Swv and Xscape together, wow what a dream!!!”
What are your thoughts on this story? Do you think that Coko could be a good substitute for Burruss?
Do you believe that Burruss, an original member of the band, should not be replaced despite the fact that she is the one who has decided to walk away?
