In the early 2000’s people would pay a nice coin to see Ashanti perform, but now not so much. According to BET, the singer was booked to perform at Stony Brook University, but only sold 24 tickets. Teyana Taylor was supposed to perform at the school and pulled out of the show two weeks before.

The school decided to book Ashanti as the headliner, but didn’t expect these low ticket sales. The student organization at Stony Brook University released a statement saying, “As an organization, we do our best to host programs for students while providing diversity and inclusion. However, we have struggled to execute certain aspects. With only a week before the concert, only 24 tickets were sold to students.”
