Cardi B awarded Billboard’s Woman of the Year


Cardi B bagged the Billboard’s Woman of the Year award, which was presented by Breonna Taylor’s mother.

Cardi B has been a powerful proponent for Taylor’s justice. Breonna Taylor, a 26-year-old whose Kentucky home was raided by police officers, was shot dead with a “no-knock warrant”, on suspicions that her house might have been a hideout for drug packages.

Taylor’s mother, Tamika Palmer, while presenting Cardi B with the award said, “Cardi has used her platform to spread the truth of what happened to Brianna and to reaffirm that Black women’s lives matter.”

The rapper has recently also called out for more male rappers to speak for Taylor.

Cardi B’s message in her acceptance speech was for all the girls out there who are just like her, to put their mind into success to achieve it.
