Waka Flocka Flame Concert Inspires Woman To Divorce Her Husband

Waka Flocka Flame

It looks like an encounter with Waka Flocka Flame has inspired a 53-year-old blogger to divorce her husband.

On Sunday June 2, a rap blogger who runs Deep Commotion posted on her blog describing how a attending a live performance of Waka Flocka Flame pushed her to divorce her husband. The 53-year-old writer says she first came across Flocka while writing a piece about the impact of social media on music promotion—an article that Flocka re-Tweeted.

“In attempting to learn more about Twitter, I found musicians were doing a better job of social media promotion than most social media experts,” she writes. “I blogged about two rap artists who got social media right, Waka being one of them. He retweeted my post and graciously followed me on Twitter when I asked…Waka’s following and re-Tweeting me gave me happiness, more followers and credibility. He started my new career of reviewing rap artists. I can’t ever thank him enough.”

She continues that it was her husband’s disapproval of her attending a Waka Flocka concert in Ft. Lauderdale that proved to be the tipping point in their relationship. She explained that his implications that she might, “end up doing something [she'd] regret” at the show made her feel that she was living her life, “looking over her shoulder.”

“My ex-husband and I had always had problems,” she writes. “I knew Waka was coming to Ft. Lauderdale, my husband basically said he wouldn’t prevent me from going (as if) but he didn’t want me to go. When I didn’t immediately agree not to go, things got worse. He basically implied that (and I’m paraphrasing), ‘Many black men would be putting their bodies in close proximity to mine.’ Also, ‘Since I was so enamored of Waka, if Waka asked, I might go out clubbing with him and end up doing something I’d regret.’”

She added, “The experience with my ex of the Waka concert made my mind up for me. It was time to make that break, and live my life without looking over my shoulder or being beholden to an immature man who didn’t appreciate me or the interesting turns my life might take. We’ve been divorced for a few months now. I couldn’t be happier.”

    misleading article. Clearly stated in the article “She added, “The experience with my ex of the Waka concert made my mind up for me.
