AceShowbiz - 1501 Certified Entertainment's new artist Erica Banks set tongues wagging among fans as they accused her of being a Megan Thee Stallion copycat due to her similar flows and sound with the "Savage" hitmaker's. Now, Erica has broken her silence on the accusation, laughing it off in a post on her Twitter account.
Blaming the similarity on Texas "accent," Erica wrote on Friday, June 19, "only ppl from Texas understand that we all have the same 'accent' lol." Despite the explanation, people didn't actually buy her words.
"It's not the accent, we could careless about that, but when you have the same flow, style, ad libs, and delivery it could come off as a bit copy cat-ish," one fan argued. Echoing the sentiment, someone else added, "it's not because of the accent, it's because you have the same style when rapping megan, you also have the same flows."
However, some users jumped into Erica's defense and suggested her to ignore naysayers. "Don't even waste yo time tryna explain ppl got the mind made up. Just keep dropping that hot s**t. First they hate ya then they love ya," one tweeted.
"Don't let the haters get to you love. A lot of people don't know how to form an opinion without putting others in a box. They'll see what you're all about in due time. Keep dropping. you got dis #DTownBizness," another supportive fan wrote.
Prior to this, people were quick to accuse Carl Crawford of trying to push a Megan's copycat by introducing Erica. "We are now witnessing the birth of Megan's first son. He not even trynna hide it," a Megan fan alleged. In another post, the fan noted the vast similarities between the two femcees, saying, "The car freestyle. The sample. The flow. The sound."
Megan has yet to comment on the matter.
