Ishawna’s latest two Dancehall bangers with incarcerated superstar Vybz Kartel has many Gaza fans questioning the connection however the man behind the scenes is finally sharing how it all happened.
The self-proclaimed ‘Worl Boss’ tapped the controversial singer earlier this year for ‘Washer Dryer’ produced by TJ Records then most recently for a Jones Ave Records-produced single ‘How Can You.’
Vybz Kartel also released a new single ‘Mhm Hm’ earlier this week which is featured on the same riddim for the ‘Equal Rights’ singer new Danielle D.I diss track ‘Walking Dead’.
With reports of Vybz Kartel giving Vanessa Bling the boot and replacing her with Ishawna, a close associate of the ‘Fever’ deejay is now sharing how the former Downsound records singer got the link.
According to Portmore-based deejay/producer, Sikka Rhymes, Ishawna has always been a huge fan of Vybz Kartel so he reached out to Addi for her to get the green-light to visit him in prison to talk business.
“She was always a fan of Kartel’s music, and she always wanted to be on a record with him. So I told him that she’d love to meet him and he allowed the visit, that’s how she got introduced,” Sikka said. “The songs they claim he is recording behind bars are songs that have been voiced already. So, when I link him, we just talk bout business and such. I basically link the producers and tell them what to release, and pick songs. As you can see, the song with Shenseea wasn’t originally a collaboration, but dem fix it up and make it look like that,” he added.
