Since the first episode of P. Valley aired on Starz, J. Alphone Nicholson’s part as “Lil Murda” has been a source of debate. Lil Murda is a complicated person. His singing career took off while he was coming to terms with being a black gay man. Many black Americans had never seen two strong black men getting close on screen, so there was a lot of pushback against the intimate screens.
People didn’t like it when celebrities like Plies and Lil Duval talked about how much they didn’t like the show, which constantly showed gay private scenes. It started when Lil Duval said he would never watch the show again. P. Valley’s co-executive producer then called him out and told him to change his mind. Even though there is a lot of criticism, P. Valley’s popularity keeps going through the roof. In the US, 4.5 million people watched the opening of season two across multiple platforms. This broke Starz’s record for the most viewers from one season to the next.
