Though Kandi Burruss and  all of her Real Housewives of Atlanta cast mates will be back for season 6 of the show, Kandi continues to branch out with shows of her own. With one that is centered around her musical roots, Kandi’s new competition show The Kandi Factory premiered this past Tuesday night. And already, one of the show’s contestant’s is not happy with Kandi and the show’s producers and is being very vocal about the broken promises that he says they made to him. Around the same time that Kim Zolciak’s rep shaded Kandi’s music career, 19-year-old college student Matthew Solomon, who was the contestant that won on the pilot episode of the show, took to his Twitter account to call Kandi out for not holding up her end of the deal when it came to what he would be getting for winning and even sided with Kim Zolciak over the lawsuit that Kandi hit Kim with over ‘Tardy For The Party’.

Matthew tweeted:

“Haven’t heard from Kandi since the show. Sorry you can’t download my song. Wow Kandi, I got you a new season and u lied about what u promised. Using Kim for press.”

Matthew Solomon’s good friend Jamie Rose had a few words to say about the situation with the show and gave RumorFix their take on the situation between Matthew and Kandi, saying that Matthew was very distraught over Kandi not following through with what she promised him:

“Kandi really messed Matthew up emotionally. She promised him all kind of things like fame and that he was going to go far and make an album, and would even be opening for people like Nicki Minaj. Kandi promised him all this fame which he never got.”

And Jamie goes on to say that the show was not being very supportive of Matthew and did not offer him any royalties for the song that he made:

“The show was not supportive of Matthew, and didn’t give him royalties he made from the song.”

The friend went on to say that Matthew felt like he was “brainwashed” and that Kandi and the producers of the show told Matthew that they were going to do all that they could to make him famous and that he was going to go far. They also added that Matthew had formed a very good relationship with Kandi and that she told him that he could look to her for anything that he needed help with.

    I like Kandi but she is clearly in this for the money, not to help someone start a music career. I mean she hasn’t even wrote for any relevant artists in a long time.

    How does anyone expect Kandi to make them a big star when she was never one herself?

    This is so tacky. Kandi really needs to address this. She’s been too quiet.

    Im not surprised by tht.u could just look at her show and tell its all for money.I think this is season 2 of this show and I never heard of any of the artists who actually won…they done better joining American idol or the voice becuz kandi aint putting her 100 percent on tht.it’s all for ratings and for her name to stay out there once real housewives of Atlanta is off season.becuz it always (kandi show) comes on after real housewives of atl ends the season finale.and plus kandi aint wrote no hit since I dnt know when…so what makes u think she is capable of stabilizing a career for an unknown person…with her cheap A-S…

    First of all she wrote the song so what royalties do he deserve? Second he has no talent so he couldn’t have thought he was going far. Third learn the business, and read before you go around believing everything somebody tell you and start signing sh-t. Im sorry but you set yourself up for failure. Grow up and get over it.
