Beenie Man says Spice is the “Dancehall Queen” Elect, Not the Queen but Spice Responds!5 min read
Since Marion Hall, formerly known as Lady Saw and crowned the “Queen of Dancehall” gave her life over to Christ, many have been debating as to who will be the next queen and who will step up and fill Marion Hall’s shoes. Some have even stated that the Queen of the Stage, known for her raunchy lyrics and acrobatic moves, dancehall artiste Spice is the new queen. However, the one who many call the King of the Dancehall, Beenie Man says the Queen, Minister Marion Hall, formerly known as Lady Saw is baptised and Spice is not yet the queen as ‘You don’t just get the title just so’.
The Veteran artist shared the statement recently during a candid interview that he is also here waiting to see the next queen to come.
When asked about Spice getting the title, the deejay said while Spice stepped up her work ethic to claim the throne, that’s not how you become a queen. Beenie said, “If yuh guh tek Lady Saw crown, you affi do weh Lady Saw do! no disrespect, you can’t do less work and……” Beenie however agreed that Spice is now the designated queen or queen-elect but not the queen. Since the interview Spice caught wind of Beenie’s opinion and wrote a lengthy response on her official instagram page. Spice wrote, “D Rasta man vex true mi say a Kartel a the king a dancehall. Smh Veterans want to be praised for paving the way but still never want to let go or embrace the New artiste. You crowned yourself king when yellow man was really the king and then over the years you were found fit after repeatedly self proclaiming it. Unlike bounty killer who highlighted so many dancehall careers what did you ever do for dancehall after so many years as the “KING” Not even a one girl yu never buss as a dancer much less not even your own daughter a Ding Dong haffie dweet Kmt. Saw left a huge shoe to fill and no female will fill it overnight. Nothing is wrong with your sentence “The Queen got baptized” we all know that, but you also do know that the king is incarcerated right ?
