Comedian Mo’Nique has had an up and down career while battling some powerful Hollywood heavyweights (Oprah Winfrey, Tyler Perry, Lee Daniels and Netflix). Now, she may be back on the upswing after one social media post by a popular Hollywood executive.
Over the weekend, 50 Cent posted on his Instagram account that he saw Mo’Nique perform during Super Bowl Weekend and gave her high praise for the show she put on. He suggested to his followers that they need to check her out.
Then, the Queens rapper turned Hollywood power broker continued to bring attention to her and started to lobby to get her work, claiming she shouldn’t have been canceled. Stating the comedian is good for the culture. He posts a cleverly edited video of Mo’Nique interacting with Power couple Omari Hardwick and Naturi Naughton.
“I Gotta get @therealmoworldwide back in pocket, we only suppose to cancel shit that ain’t good for the culture. we need you to WIN again now MONIQUE.”
He then adds an additional post advocating to put her in a position to win as an actress. He encourages his followers to respond to his post if they agree with him.
“All in Favor of @therealmoworldwide being back on Top,🤨Say make it happen 50 ! STOP F**KING AROUND”
Well, maybe with his Starz agreement coming to an end later this year, whatever deal he is able to negotiate, he can put Mo’Nique in one of his shows.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, 50 Cent is nearing the end of his overall deal with Starz this September. Sources have said that Starz CEO Jeffrey Hirsch is preparing to negotiate a new, overall deal for 50 Cent and wants to sign him long-term, unlike the original four-year contract he signed with former Starz CEO Chris Albrecht in 2018. Under that agreement, Starz included a commitment to three series produced under his G-Unit banner.
