'Someone should be fired': Fans trash Verzuz for delays and bad sound in Omarion vs Mario R&B battle
Mario's biggest hit was 'Let Me Love You' which was released in 2004 and Omarion has two albums with some hard-hitting tracks
Verzuz announced on Saturday, June 18, that they will be taking a different approach by putting two R&B legends in a face-off — Omarion and Mario. Both the singers have dominated the scene and the announcement instantly sent their fans into a frenzy. The event which is live right now, can be streamed on YouTube, Triller, Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram. The event was graced by a pre-battle of Ray J & Bobby V vs. Pleasure P & Sammie.
Taking place in Los Angeles, the event was scheduled for 6 p.m. PT/9 p.m. ET. Both Omarion and Mario are putting their discographies against each other which are rock solid. Mario's biggest hit was 'Let Me Love You' which was released in 2004 and Omarion has two albums with some hard-hitting tracks. The founders of this entertaining entity, Timbaland and Swizz Beatz, started this back in 2020 and have put legends in the same room such as Snoop Dogg and the late DMX, Raekwon and Ghostface Killah, Nelly and Ludacris, Method Man and Redman and Alicia Keys and John Legend, and many more.

Fans were furious because of the delays
While the event built up to some realistic expectations, fans were pissed when the singers weren't there and the event didn't start on time. One user said, "Y’all could’ve just said 11 in the first place for the main event #OmarionVsMario #Verzuz" Another user tweeted, "Now this #Verzuz #OmarionVsMario is showing me the woman in me now is ready to go to bed. Yall taking too long."
One angry user tweeted, "I hope the #Verzuz is as long as the pre show or a lot of folks are gonna feel bamboozled #OmarionVsMario" Another anxious viewer who obviously waited for a little too long for the main event tweeted, "I could have taken a 2 hour nap before the VERZUZ #OmarionVsMario"
