HOT 97’s Ebro Darden has been getting dragged on social media after a clip resurfaced from an interview he did with Tinashe where he said some colorist comments about the singer’s name. It’s quite cringy….


HOT 97 radio host Ebro Darden is trending heavy on social media for some comments he made during a 2013 interview with singer Tinashe. A clip of the radio personality dubbing Tinashe’s last name as a “ghetto a** name” for a “light skinned” girl has resurfaced and folks are letting him have it, respectfully.

In the 2013 clip, Ebro asked his co-host, Peter Rosenberg, to ask the “2 On” singer (who was 20 at the time) to reveal her last name.

”Kachingwe,” she responded.

”Now, can we point out how light-skinned she is with a ghetto a** name, though?,” Ebro said.

“It’s not a ghetto name, she has an African name,” Peter responded. “Her name is Nigeri – Zimbabwean. My point is, that’s not ghetto, she has an African name.”

“Sometimes these ghetto names are actually African,” Ebro said.

Wait, what? 

The Twitter user who shared the clip wrote, “yeah tinashe better than me because i would’ve became real disrespectful.”

Check it:



Folks reacted to the clip where Ebro was dragged and schooled on his ignorant comment:







After receiving backlash, the Apple Music executive retweeted the clip, calling it a “terrible joke.”



”Yea this was a terrible joke, we were using the name skit for people to learn her origins… love Tinashe that’s my homey still,” the 46-year-old tweeted.

Well, folks are STILL letting him have it:
