Nicki Minaj Dancer Busted for Tweeting on Music Video Set
An aspiring singer paid to appear in Nicki Minaj‘s upcoming music video ‘Super Bass,’ claims to have been fired for leaking the details online. According to TMZ, Toyin Koyejo was demoted from main attraction to an extra for spilling the beans about the video via Twitter.
“Yea buddy! Guess who just got booked as a lead on Nicki Minaj’s new Video? ….Yup you guessed it! …Lil ‘ol me #Leggo,” he wrote last week. Two days later Koyejo revealed that some of his Tweets, which appear to have been deleted caused him to lose his spot. “Long story short Ya’ll got me in trouble for tweeting … I got featured in the vid but my boy got the lead so I’m good.”
Koyejo went on to state that, despite TMZ’s reports, he was not “demoted” but will have to wait until the video is released to see if he will get any face time. Since 2008, the singer has been working to make a name for himself via YouTube and boasts over 55,000 followers on Twitter.
Although Minaj has yet to confirm or deny any issue with Koyejo leaking information, the Young Money frontwoman released a sneak peak of the video to MTV, so the concept and details are hardly a secret.
“Super Bass’ is about the boy that you are crushing over,” she said. “And you kind of want to get your mack on, but you’re taking the playful approach. We have a lot of little surprises in store for this particular video,” she said. “I would like to put out 50 videos. The videos really tell the story a lot more elaborately than just the song does.”
Sales of Minaj’s platinum plus debut ‘Pink Friday,’ remain steady as the New York native broke another Billboard records, becoming the first female emcee most consecutive weeks spent in the Top 10 by a female rap album on the Hot 200 charts.
No word yet on when ‘Super Bass’ will be released.
