Ashanti & Nelly Celebrate ‘Wiz’ Opening

Ashanti was joined by her family and friends, including beau Nelly, at the opening night party of “The Wiz” at K Lounge in New York City on Thursday (June 18). Ashanti is starring in the Broadway musical, which runs June 12 – July 5 at the New York City Center.

“Ashanti holds her own as Dorothy, particularly in solo numbers performed, ‘American Idol’-style, downstage center in the spotlight,” writes Entertainment Weekly. “As for her dancing, well, she doesn’t ease on down the road so much as clod-hop through it.”
