Although Aiko was aware of what Coko said, there was no ill will between the two. The latter shared an Instagram photo of them together at the festival and detailed their interaction.
“Jhené Aiko is a sweetheart!” Coko wrote. “She walked up to me and said all of my songs aren’t sleepy. We laughed and hugged it out!! She got what I was saying though. It’s all love, no hate. My son is a big fan of hers.”
Both artists took the stage at Pharrell’s Something In The Water Festival, which took place in his hometown of Virginia Beach. Coko performed solo since fellow SWV members Leelee and Taj couldn’t make the performance.
