Posted April 19, 2020

Over 400k fans and peers including Mariah Carey, Toni Braxton, Snoop Dogg, and many more turned up last night for the highly anticipated virtual battle between living legends Teddy Riley and Babyface on Instagram.

After weeks of promotion from both of the legendary performers, and their respective industry friends, the main event was finally going down.

As you may know, it all went to hell after a series of technical difficulties last night on Teddy Riley’s end which prohibited the event from being able to continue. First connection issues with Teddy’s team being able to find and connect to Babyface on Instagram Live, followed by echo and delay issues on Teddy’s end once they were able to finally connect with Babyface.

The internet and comments quickly got Teddy together, and before the night was over, he was trending #1 on Twitter, and NOT for good reason.

Well shortly after, Face and Teddy both took to IG to issue an apology to fans and promised the event would be rescheduled, when Teddy can get his sound issues together.
