Nicki Minaj's Bestie, Thembi Banks, Gets Called An "Opp" For Accepting Directing Job On Cardi B Film


Nicki Minaj dissed and shades best friend for taking directing job with Cardi B. Thembi Banks went to high school with Nicki Minaj.

 

It looks like Cardi B's "Assisted Living" has found a director...<drumroll>!


Deadline is reporting that Thembi Banks has signed on to direct Cardi B in her leading role debut. Thembi is one of the rising stars in the directing circle and Nicki Minaj's best friend since high school. The chess moves don't stop.


 



 

Well, despite any rap beefs, you would think that this would be a time to celebrate, considering that opportunities like this don't come around often for Black women. But it seems like not everyone is in a congratulatory mood. Another one of Nicki Minaj's besties, Viola, has taken her grievances to Instagram and is calling Thembi an opp for not revealing this news while at Papa Bear's birthday party.




Oh, lawwwd, this is another messy situation that should have been handled privately. If Viola is really trying to be a ride or die friend to Nicki, she would not have been so public, unless...nvm.



Anyways, CONGRATS TO THEMBI

I went and looked into my eight ball and it told me that this movie will not come off the ground 😂 Naw but fr I think Viola took it upon herself to address this w/o Nicki knowing.

Idc how great of an opportunity it was, this is done str8 up opp shit. It’s the very definition of unloyalty. How you betray ya bestie since HS like that or at least not have the balls to tell her when it was offered to you but sit @ her house & smile on her face at her sons bday party smh shakes in the grass everywhere. This was def not a coincidence, out of all the black female directors, they pick one of Nicki’s HS besties, this is indeed a chess move. Executives and producers are working behind the scenes to bring any & everybody away from Nicki, stay woke. If she’s truly an amazing director, another great opportunity…

I don’t blame thembi either but it’s the principal it’s not a regular friendship then after the birthday party you unfollowed nicki and all up Cardi account that fishy idk and nicki still follow her so I don’t think this was a problem for nicki to see thembi working with Cardi in my opinion as for viola she should have shut up and not bring this to internet lol after candi hanging out with redbone and thembi working with Cardi i Would like to be a fly to see what’s really going on on nicki life for that 20 plus years friendship to end up like that like going to her opps it’s crazy to me
