Cardi B's husband Offset reveals he was a young backup dancer in Whitney Houston's music video
The rapper took to Instagram to share a throwback photo of him and Houston posing in a backstage photograph together
Rapper Offset rose to fame and became a mainstream success with his group Migos' 2017 hit 'Bad and Boujee.' But the 26-year-old star has just revealed that he's been in the music business for much longer than anyone knows! He shared an adorable backstage group photograph with none other than Whitney Houston when he was a little boy — turns out he was a backup dancer for the legendary singer!
The caption for the picture read, 'I BEEN DOING THIS ENTERTAINMENT GOD MY WITNESS WHICH ONE IS ME ????' Daily Mail reports that Offset's mother Latabia first hinted at him being in music videos for Whitney and TLC before stopping herself from revealing more as she noted that he has an image to protect. The rapper was only 10 years old when he featured in Houston's 2002 video for 'Whatchulookinat' as a background dancer.
Offset's killer dance moves are no secret. His wife Cardi B recently shared an Instagram video of her husband dancing shirtless. She used the post to comment on her husband's sexiness and promote his upcoming solo album. The racy caption read, "Fine a**. I’ll suck ya d*** right thruu this phone.... hubby album coming 12-14."
The video features Offset walking around in shorts as his wife called out to him saying "Cuz you really fine," as Offset smiled sheepishly. "Sexy ni***, baby father," Cardi continued as she made her signature catcall and ends the video with: "You f******g me today!"
Recently, Cardi challenged her husband to a friendly rap battle which will be live-streamed through the TikTok broadcasting app. The battle is apparently over who gets to buy Christmas decorations. The singer teased the event on Instagram saying, "Whoever loses gotta buy all the Christmas decorations, all of them. The [house] in New York, the one in Atlanta, too. What's up? Are you scared? Of wifey, hmm."
Offset accepted the challenge a few hours later when he took to his Instagram story and said, "You're on, baby, I accept your challenge on the TikTok app. Let's rap it up. Let's go." No details have since emerged regarding the rules and stipulations for the battle, but this should give the Migos rapper a publicity boost leading into his debut solo album releasing next month (Dec. 14) reports Billboard.
The couple started publicly dating in 2017 and got engaged in October the same year when Offset proposed to Cardi B at the Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia and later got married. Cardi B delivered her first child on July 10, 2018, Kulture Kiari Cephus, a daughter.
