Cardi B is Hip hop’s answer to Fiona Bruce

The political correspondent we never knew we needed...

Election season is always a great time for information and discussions on the varying issues plaguing society. Twitter has always been a catalyst for long-form rallying of candidates, parties and pressure groups. As the US leadership race heats up, celebs have come out en masse to drive the political discourses that the POTUS has actively avoided. Known for her firm vocal force and n avid political engager, Cardi B, took her influence to the platform she cherishes most, Instagram, to host a Question Time style episode between herself and fans. The rapper explained that, 

“THIS MIGHT BE YOUR CHANCE TO GET YOUR QUESTION ANSWERED!! I would like to ask my favorite democratic candidate about police brutality.What would you like to ask ? what change would you like to see in your community and in the USA 🇺🇸? 2020 is getting very close let’s get familiar with who is running and how they can change the country ! Put your questions down below and your questions may be answered very soon”

With a viewership of 10,000,000 and 40, 000 comments, the discussion was set a precedence of intergenerational conversations, diversity and the power of celebrity for good in a major way. The four main concerns at the fore of everyones mind were as follows:

The Climate Crisis

Affordable Healthcare
