Controversial Dancehall artist Ishawna is finally addressing her disrespectful comments aimed at late legendary Jamaican poet Louise Simone ‘Miss Lou’ Bennett-Coverley earlier this month.
The ‘Equal Rights’ singer angered fans when she justified her raunchy outfits saying she refuses to wear ‘Tablecloth’ like Miss Lou. “Mi nuh dress inna tablecloth like Miss Lou,” Ishawna wrote. “#RipMissLou,” she added.
Since then a slew of Jamaican personalities have blasted the former Downsound Records singer including Miss Kitty at Reggae Sumfest 2017 on Dancehall Night.
The ‘Fluffy Diva’ called Ishawna a ‘dish towel’ and hinted that she was illiterate. “Nuh dish towel cyaa diss Miss Lou… big up gal weh can read and write and these things,” Kitty told the audience.
On Sunday, Ishawna took to her Instagram Live to speak briefly with her fans for the first time on the topic. “Mi a stress dem all Summer 2017, dem a throw shade but dem still cyaa shine……,” she told fans. “Miss Kitty say mi dunce? Alright, that’s cute her body wan do…. her body wan do over, a that she fi guh worry bout…”
“She suppose to wear bandana, mi seh no table cloth a that mi seh, mi nuh really response.” Ishawna added.
