By Obiajulu Chiagoziem

Melissa Viviane Jefferson, known professionally as Lizzo, an American singer has received backlashes from fans after she referred to Chris Brown as her “favourite person” while asking him for a photo.

The singer is facing this backlash after a video of the two musicians meeting backstage at a concert that went viral. In the clip, which was posted on Twitter, Lizzo is seen asking Chris to take a picture with her after approaching him, adding, “Because you’re my favorite person in the whole f–king world.”

Her appeal for a shot with Chris Brown wasn’t appreciated by some fans as they all took turns to pour out their bitter thoughts.

“Lizzo calling Chris brown her favorite person in the whole f–king world,” one fan wrote, “I’M PISSED OFF MAN.” Another added, “lizzo, my baby, look at me. LOOK AT ME. this isn’t you. i know the real you. listen, it’s just me and you, okay? this isn’t you. i know you better than that. please.”

A third fan also commented, “Yuck lizzo said Chris brown is their favorite person in the world??”

However, some fans came to Lizzo’s rescue as one fan said “I know y’all ain’t canceling Lizzo when all your faves have released a feature with Chris Brown in the last 5 years.”

As it is now, both singers are yet to grant interview on the alleged backlash ongoing in Twitter.

Lizzo is an American singer, rapper, songwriter, and flutist. Born in Detroit, Michigan, she later moved to Houston, Texas, where she began performing, before moving to Minneapolis, where she began her recording career in hip hop music.
