The Queen of the Dancehall, Lady Saw, has denied allegations that she and fellow artiste Tifa are at odds.According to Lady Saw, she did an interview on Entertainment Report last Friday night where she was questioned about who could be her successor.
“They asked me about Spice and Tifa, and then cut up the interview and put in the part where I said ‘nobody can walk in my shoes’. I am very disappointed about the interview. Spice is a good friend of mine and to cut up the interview like that hurt me deeply,” Lady Saw stated
Lady Saw said she was informed of a broadcast message that Tifa had sent out. She said she initially thought the broadcast message was in retaliation to the interview on ER but later found out that Tifa’s message was sent before her interview aired.
“There was a rumour on a website that ‘ants was in my milk’, and people were saying my boyfriend John John had a next girl pregnant. Then after I performed on Magnum Kings and Queens, I heard about the rumour with Tifa. John John would never do that, he would never sleep with a next artiste because he knows that would be disrespectful to me,” Lady Saw explained.
Lady Saw said she took offence to aspects of Tifa’s broadcast message. “In the broadcast she said she never take any artiste gyal man and that if it’s publicity stunt we are looking. I didn’t appreciate that. So I called her mom and told her what offended me. They were assuming that I had something to do with the rumour and that is what hurt me,” Saw said.
Lady Saw says she is focused on her work and her new album which is due out this year so she has no time for negativity and rumours. She also told stated that she has known Tifa since she was a baby and would never say anything bad about her.
When contacted, Tifa denied that she had any beef with Lady Saw. She explained that she sent out a broadcast message because individuals were spreading rumours which was not only affecting her credibility but was also costing her bookings.
“Rumours were circulating about me dating and being pregnant for Lady Saw’s boyfriend and everything spiralled out of control. I was then hinted to the fact by persons that this was all part of a plot against me. All of those allegations are ludicrous and I don’t even have a phone number for this man. People were querying my bookings due to the fact that persons believed I was pregnant. I can’t have this nonsense affecting my shows. I do not have any beef with Lady Saw and I respect her as a ‘fore-mother’ who paved the way for artistes like me,” Tifa said.
