Earlier this year, DaBaby sparked a strong reaction from social media users after he seemingly referred to JoJo Siwa as a ‘b***h’ in one of his new songs.

The rapper left fans confused when he released a track called Beatbox Freestyle which appeared to diss the 17-year-old singer.

However, DaBaby has since insisted he was not trying to slam JoJo and the internet has misunderstood the meaning behind the lyrics.

In the song, he raps: ‘N****, you a b***h/ JoJo Siwa, b***h/ She let the wrong n**** get rich,’ while holding up a photo of JoJo to the camera.

Fans quickly took to social media to poke fun at DaBaby for apparently hitting out at the teen star.

One user wrote: ‘DaBaby got no reason to call out JoJo Siwa like that,’ while anothe rsaid: ‘Of all the people for DaBaby to be beefing with and he picks JoJo Siwa????’

Another added: ‘DaBaby is going to need to explain that JoJo Siwa bar because I am confusion’.

Several others shared hilarious memes poking fun at the rap before DaBaby took to Twitter to clarify the meaning behind his rap.

Taking to social media, he wrote: ‘I love Twitter bruh,’ before he messaged JoJo directly and insisted he is a big fan and his daughter also loves her.

DaBaby wrote: ‘@JoJoSiwa my 3 year old princess is your number 1 fan. I bought her every product you have out. She think she you.

‘Don’t let em trick you into thinking id ever have a problem with you. My word play just went over their heads. All love on my end shawty, Keep shinning!’

WHY MODERN MEDS MEAN HIV IS NOT A DEATH SENTENCE

Prior to 1996, HIV was a death sentence. Then, ART (anti-retroviral therapy) was made, suppressing the virus, and meaning a person can live as long a life as anyone else, despite having HIV.

Drugs were also invented to lower an HIV-negative person’s risk of contracting the virus by 99%. 

In recent years, research has shown that ART can suppress HIV to such an extent that it makes the virus untransmittable to sexual partners.

That has spurred a movement to downgrade the crime of infecting a person with HIV: it leaves the victim on life-long, costly medication, but it does not mean certain death.  

Here is more about the new life-saving and preventative drugs: 

1. Drugs for HIV-positive people 

It suppresses their viral load so the virus is untransmittable

In 1996, anti-retroviral therapy (ART) was discovered. 

The drug, a triple combination, turned HIV from a fatal diagnosis to a manageable chronic condition.  

It suppresses the virus, preventing it from developing into AIDS (Acquired Immunodeficiency Syndrome), which makes the body unable to withstand infections.

After six months of religiously taking the daily pill, it suppresses the virus to such an extent that it’s undetectable. 

And once a person’s viral load is undetectable, they cannot transmit HIV to anyone else, according to scores of studies including a decade-long study by the National Institutes of Health

Public health bodies around the world now acknowledge that U=U (undetectable equals untransmittable).

2. Drugs for HIV-negative people 

It is 99% effective at preventing HIV

PrEP (pre-exposure prophylaxis) became available in 2012. 

This pill works like ‘the pill’ – it is taken daily and is 99 percent effective at preventing HIV infection (more effective than the contraceptive pill is at preventing pregnancy). 

It consists of two medicines (tenofovir dosproxil fumarate and emtricitabine). Those medicines can mount an immediate attack on any trace of HIV that enters the person’s bloodstream, before it is able to spread throughout the body.
