In my post, which you can read above, many of you expressed your desires to hear rapper Da Brat onair as a regular addition to The Rickey Smiley Morning Show.
Welp… it appears the Gods heard your cries because now Da Brat has been named as Jordan’s permanent replacement on the popular radio show!
Details about Da Brats new blessing below…
According to Rodney Ho of TheAJC:
Rickey Smiley‘s third female co-host in just over a year on his syndicated morning show is rap star Da Brat.
Da Brat, whose real name is Shawntee Harris, today replaced “Real Housewives of Atlanta” cast member Claudia Jordan, who spent a year with the show but was let go earlier this week. Last year, Jordan took over for the popular Ebony Steele, who had been with Smiley for seven years but was also released from duties without explanation.
DaBrat, who has been a regular visitor to the Smiley show over the past year, apparently got the good news around the same time everyone else did…. while reading the local paper this morning!
The 41-year-old Atlanta resident, the first female solo rap artist to go platinum with her album “Funkdafied” in 1994, will be a welcome addition to Smiley morning show, which is heard on more than 60 markets nationwide.
The show produced in downtown Atlanta and heard on Hot 107.9 locally. For the record, Porsha Williams remains as the female representative on the syndicated TV show “Dish Nation.”
How do you feel about Da Brat’s new radio gig???
Are you looking forward to hearing her on a daily basis?
