Dancehall artiste Spice has broken her silence after getting backlash over her raunchy performance at The Rio Sports Gala and Awards Ceremony on Saturday night for the Jamaican athletes.
The ‘Needle Eye’ deejay who took the stage at the National Indoor Sports Complex after gospel artiste Kevin Downswell, sent tongues wagging with her choice of songs labelling them ‘inappropriate’ which resulted in her set being cut mid-performance.
On Sunday, Spice took to social media to blast the event’s organizers stating they should’ve booked Downswell twice. “My Riddim stopped playing when I was about to do this song but yet still these dancers came up right after me and you played the same song and it was ok. No technical difficulty,” She stated. “I’m not bashing these lovely dancers who I love dearly but they were dressed in short shorts and bra top on stage winning and a skin out, girls winning on man back it up and all,but I wore a dress and it was inappropriate,” She added.
Spice continued by saying, “Or is it because I’m not from “uptown” it wasn’t ok for me to sing my own song but they could dance to it? I wonder what they expected me to sing because in that case they should have hired Kevin Downswell twice instead of requesting me. All I know is that “Some” of you BLACK PEOPLE ARE A SET OF HYPOCRITES.”
