Recently it has been reported that the youthful artist, Zendaya has been chosen to play Aaliyah in her biopic on Lifetime. While there have been some naysayers, she is clearly proud to be the chosen one for the long overdue film. However, there have been people saying that it should have been Keisha Chante who was chosen to play the soulful singer.
Keisha took it upon herself to address the comments in a post on her instagram. “After learning how the Haughton family truly felt, I just didn’t feel like it was right.” The singer is referring to the fact that Aaliyah’s family refuses to support the upcoming film. She goes on to thank her fans for their support and ends by congratulating Zendaya on her role
As sincere as it seems, the backhanded complimented was subtly executed in a flawless manner. Kudos.
