T.I. Takes His Daughter to Tony Awards; Disses ‘Shekanas’ Everywhere

TI and daughter Deyjah

Rap tycoon Clifford “T.I.” Harris, Jr. took his 13-year-old daughter, Deyjah Harris, as his date to the Tony Awards in NYC yesterday. T.I. and other VIP guests attended the 2014 Antoinette Perry “TONY” Awards presented by The Broadway League and the American Theatre Wing at Radio City Music Hall, Rockefeller Center in NYC on Sunday.

The 33-year-old rapper, actor, and producer stirred emotions on social media when he explained the Tony Awards to the “Shekana” types on social media– a reference to his less intellectual, ghetto fabulous “Family Hustle” co-star, Shekinah Jo.

Shekinah Instagram

Shekinah promptly responded with her own post, spelling her name right and explaining the meaning behind her name (“Glory to God”).

This could all be a publicity stunt for the show — which lags behind VH1’s other popular Atlanta-based reality show, Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta, by about a million viewers.

I understand getting the ratings numbers up, but at the same time, VH1 has cast T.I. and his wife, Tameka Harris as this generation’s Cosbys — and public image is one thing advertisers care about.

      What about the mama calling Tiny out about :cell: TI? :popcorn: She said, “Tameka you look happy with your friends, but nothing absolutely nothing can replace the feeling of being happy with your man! Please have a serious talk with Tip?”

      You think she trying to get more IG followers? Mama gotta have a life too. :lol:

      Deyjah is a cutie pie :yes:

      Welp, I’ll be d@mned. “From the Hebrew word ??????? (shekhinah) which means “God’s manifested glory” or “God’s presence”. This word does not appear in the Bible, but later Jewish scholars used it to refer to the dwelling place of God, especially the Temple in Jerusalem.”

    • SummerBaby

      Deyjah is a cutie! I really wish they would take their issues off social media.

    • free

      if this is for the show, it doesn’t look good on TI. this nigra looking bitter as hell. and then his mama begging tiny to talk to him? seriously?

      i think shekinah is what they say when they’re speaking in tongues. i never knew what they were talking about until now.

    • shina1936

      @User Friendly, Shekinah is from the Hebrew language. It can mean that or God’s presence, or God’s dwelling place.

    • https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Pi9ruVd5Vc8 VDot

      :thinking: I wonder if Mama Tip reached out to TI on IG and told him to take his azz home and have a talk with Tiny? Probably not :no: You know how that goes :eyeroll: :lol:

    • http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_nAbQogbMOk Buttercup

      Shekinah’s name does mean Glory to God :yes: I remembering reading up on it when I used to jam to “Yes.” :woohoo:

      This is childish and I’m sad that Tip would stoop to this level – I had mucho respect for him cause he seemed above the bullsh*t but these recent ravings and what I consider angry behaviors got to stop – grow up – you bigger than this Tip….

      Like I said below shekinah is the toya 2.0, she made tiny too independent. Tiny started taking more business ventures outside what TIP wanted to help shekinah and by so doing got too big for her britches (in tip mind). Tip thought that if he did a throwback ala 2005/2006, tiny would give up everything and be the dutiful wife that he trained her to be. He didn’t count on tameka realizing this time she got papers on that negro and he got more to loose with the dissolution of the marriage than she does. Tip just need to put his tail between his legs and go home and beg

    • Wasting time

      Shekinah sold herself short :yes:
      Among the Hebrews one of the traditional names of God is the Shekinah, and, interestingly, it is a feminine gender noun. Many Hebrews saw her as the mother or feminine aspect of God.

      Puffy can post up with his “15 bastards” even though he hasn’t married those women those kids are more than taken care of. Even the oldest that wasn’t his bastard to take care of, and we all see how they interact as a family and they all know who they brother and sisters are. He may not be perfect but he can easily be dad of the year.
