Either A.J. Calloway and Free Wright are two amazing April Fool’s pranksters, or they’re really returning to 106 & Park.
According to A.J.’s Instagram, the OGs of the top ten music video show will return to BET to host a new program. The Extra correspondent tagged Free and she reposted, “We’re back.” He then paid his thank yous to the show’s creator, Stephen Hill.
The pair hosted the original 106 from September 11, 2000 to July 28, 2005, with DJ Enuff as the first official disc jockey counting down the hottest hip-hop and R&B as voted on by viewers. Some of our favorite stars today were regulars on the show, stopping by to share their new music and movies with fans.
A.J. even gave fans confirmation that this isn’t an April Fool’s Day joke with the help of Kelly Rowland. We don’t know much about it, but we do know 106 After Dark is coming!
Check out the gallery of our favorite celebs that’ve graced the 106 & Park couch.
