Nicki Minaj aka "Andiana Minaj" has finally made her big debut on Bravo's hit 'Real Housewives of Potomac' as the reunion hostess. Andy Cohen briefly stepped away from his hosting duties to let the famous rapper take over for him and shake things up a bit. And dare we say, Nicki wasted no time in ruffling the feathers of the housewives. Ahead of stepping onto the stage, Nicki hinted at having some questions for Ashley Darby and Candiace Bassett, but little did we know the kind of drama that the 'Anacaonda' rapper would stir up.

Candiace is extremely touchy when it comes to the topic of her singing. The housewife who recently released her album 'Deep Space' got into a huge fight with her co-star Mia Thornton, when the housewife labeled Candiace's music shoot as 'low budget'. So, Nicki knew very well what she was doing when she called out Candiace for heavily using auto-tune for her songs. In the preview for the upcoming episode, we see Nicki jokingly call out Candiace for her heavy usage of auto-tune and demanding she sings in front of them acapella style to prove that she can sing. The 'Drive Back' singer looks visibly upset on hearing Nicki's accusations and refuses to sing. Mia gangs up on Candiace and demands she sing for them since she's a singer.

While we will have to wait until the next episode to watch how the drama plays out, 'RHOP' fans are already having some strong opinions about Nicki calling out Candiace for using auto-tune on her songs. Fans were divided over it, while some fans were amused with Nicki for openly calling out the 'RHOP' star and expressed their excitement to watch the drama between the ladies, others called out Nicki for picking on her fellow Black artist.

A fan who seems to be amused with Nicki's antics wrote, "Nicki told Candiace to sing because she mentioned her using auto tune and it seems as if Candiace didn’t want to? #RHOP boyyyy I’m ready for next week. ." Another fan wrote, "Whew. Nicki talking about that auto tune. I’m out. . #RHOP #RHOPReunion." "The shade. The shade. The shade hunni. Finally! Thank goodness for @NICKIMINAJ. I live to see it. Auto tune #RHOP #NickiMinaj #rhopreunion," commented a fan.

"@NICKIMINAJ I hope my girl wasn’t picking with @TherealCANDIACE about her voice and music. as f’d up as the industry treats Nicki why would she go there ? Especially to another black woman. #RHOP Nicki might not use auto tune, she just uses a different setting. Hell. #RHOP," shared a fan. "Nicki Minaj uses auto tune Candiace sings all the time at least she used to #RHOP I couldn’t let a bitch who married a rapist and intimidates victims read me," pointed out a fan.
