Sizzla has sent his goons after LA Lewis prompting the deejay to file a police report.
Tensions are currently high between Sizzla and LA since the reggae icon’s performance at GT Taylor Christmas Extravaganza on Monday at the Luana Sports Complex in St Elizabeth. Sizzla, who closed the show, used part of his set to blast LA Lewis over a leaked explicit video showing him performing “Equal Rights” on his girlfriend. For those of you who are unaware of the meaning of “Equal Rights” you can listen to Ishawna song here.
“LA Lewis, anytime me see yu again me ago kick yu under the throat,” the “Thank You Mama” singer said. LA quickly shot back saying that Kalonji is looking for a hype off his name and should take his advice and try eating “pum pum.” Knowing Sizzla, that statement is not sitting well with him and on Saturday, LA Lewis posted a video on Facebook telling his fans how Sizzla send his goons after him in August Town.
“Almost this morning one bag of things unnu hear say gwaan,” he said in the clip. “Last night mi a come from August town just to see men come draw down on me with guns and a tell me say Sizzla call me.” LA says at first he thought that Kalonji was just looking a hype but now he knows that it’s very serious. The self-proclaim 7-Star deejay says that Bounty Killer and Sizzla are also telling disc jockeys not to play his music.
“This is no joke people Sizzla Kalonji send man fi LA Lewis last night,” he added. The deejay says he went straight to the police station and filed a report about the incident. He also claimed that he knows two of the men personally and can identify them.
SIZLA KALANGE SEND GUN MAN TO KILL DANCE HALL POP REGGAE SUPERSTAR LA LEWIS
LA Lewis has shot back at Sizzla Kalonji who threatened to teach him a lesson.
Unless you have been living off the grid then you would’ve likely heard about the leaked video of LA Lewis dubbed the “Equal Rights” video for male dancehall artists. The deejay has since been on a campaign to get dancehall culture more accepting of certain sexual acts but Sizzla is not having it. During his performance at Monday’s GT Taylor Christmas Extravaganza at the Luana Sports Complex in St Elizabeth, Kalonji blast LA Lewis while threatening to put his foot on his neck. “Anyweh me see yu again, me ago kick yu under yu throat,” the dancehall legend said on stage.
According to the self-proclaim 7-Star deejay, Sizzla is merely using his name for the hype and he should try eating “pum pum” himself. “Sizzla need to understand that is modern time now, and me read my Bible about 15 times already, and no weh it nuh say ‘thou shall not make love to thy woman,’” LA Lew When Sizzla a burn LA Lewis, him fi go burn the tings dem whe a gwan ina di country like di road dem whe a fix and other things. Him need to taste it if him no start or admit say him dweet.”
LA Lewis also challenges Sizzla to a lyrical battle rather than a physical one. “Just put me name inna a song and make me get mad. Sizzla, cool yuhself and go write some lyrics inna yuh old age,” he added. LA is clearly looking to capitalize on the extra press that he is getting especially from someone as big as Kalonji, but whether or not he will get his wish of a lyrical battle is far-fetched. Something tells me that this feud will not end well for somebody.
While the “Equal Rights” appears to be the victor, it came at a price. Her gritty diss records drew some controversy for some lyrics where she was disrespected D.I.’s mother. Speaking with Winford Winford on OnStage last weekend, Ishawna says she has no regrets about the “mother” lyrics. She also said that she has a lot more to come but didn’t elaborate on her new singles.
“I’ve just been doing my things, deal with my career as everybody knows that’s what I do, I focus on me and I just heard a song came out about me,” Ishawna said. “She said a lot of things in her interview and everything that she said was not true and I am not really here to discuss what she said in her interview, I am just speaking on what I know about. I don’t know anything about D.I., me and D.I. were never friends, we never use to cross roads together none of that. Me here a mind my business a go my gym, a drink my water, a take my vitamins, and I just heard a song about me. I had a flight because I was suppose to go England and my flight got postponed and I just decided that I am going to answer her because I have some free times on my hands.”
Ishawna said that initially she didn’t want to respond, but because she had some free time on her hands she decided to go in the studio and released a diss track. She also spoke in depth about the mother situation where she said that she has no regrets. The dancehall deejay then discussed some recent backlash over some remarks she said about Miss Lou on Instagram and her recent “Equal Rights” single.
Danielle D.I. released two new singles, one of which she dedicated to her ailing mother and another addressing Ishawna.
The “Equal Rights” singer released a gritty diss track last month “Walking Dead” where she rips Danielle D.I. mother who is currently battling a life threatening illness. The song drew a lot of condemnation from some dancehall fans who thinks that she went a bit too far. Seems D.I. is moving past that with a new single “So Blessed” dedicated to her mother.
“Mama am so blessed mi have you / Want you fi know that, mi love you / Mama I’m so blessed mi have you / Love you with everything I do,” she sings. The dancehall diva released another single “Nothing On Me” where she takes a few shots at Ishawna. The song is not being promoted as a diss track, but you can expect a response from the “Equal Rights” deejay.
Ishawna cramps up the dial with her new raunchy music video “Equal Rights.”
Back in May, Ishawna released her raunchy new single “Equal Rights” and immediately she started getting a lot of backlash from both dancehall fans and the church community. Those criticisms is not slowing her down because she just drop the visuals for the track and lets just say its rated R. That means she is not listening to her critics and is even thinking about cranking up the volume.
The cut was directed by Terminal 4 Media and Ishawna herself and features the dancehall diva living out her fantasy. She used her long hair and her costar to barely hide her goods. Some fans are calling for the video to be removed from YouTube while some females fans are saying that they like what Ishawna is doing. “Mi love it when the man them brave up …. girl kill them and done mi just wah wine pan a bwoy tongue right now…. hey bwoy come yah with your tongue?,” Nordia Davis wrote in the comments.
Some fans are arguing that male dancehall artists like Vybz Kartel and Alkaline have been singing about similar subjects for years and there have been no backlash.
Ishawna recovered her Mercedes-Benz over the weekend after cops seized the luxury vehicle.
In the midst of her heated beef with Danielle D.I., the “Equal Rights” singer was left embarrassed last week Thursday when cops impounded her Benz for lack of insurance and registration. She was also slapped with a $10,000 ticket. Seems all of that is now water under the bridge for the dancehall diva since she is back on the road with insurance and proper documentation we hope. Some sources say that she doesn’t have the title for the car has been driving around without proper documentation.
The car was a gift to Ishawna by Downsound Records boss Joe Bogdanovich in 2015. She has since parted ways with the label but still has the car so there were a lot of chatters that the vehicle may not be registered in her name. Ishawna has been having an eventful year in dancehall with her controversial single “Equal Rights” getting her a lot of attention. The sexually charged single won her some new fans but also earned her some enemies.
She has been locked in a bitter feud with fellow female dancehall star Danielle D.I. over the last few weeks. Both sides have already delivered two diss tracks and now fans are watching to see who will blink first.
Ishawna has shared her reaction to getting watered off stage while performing her controversial single “Equal Rights” at last weekend’s Wet & Wild at Dream Weekend.
The dancehall diva came out on stage in a raunchy outfit showing off her banging body. Her performance was going well until she started performing “Equal Rights.” Some of the males in the audience weren’t too pleased about the performance of the single and that’s when water came raining down on Ishawna taking out her microphone.
Tony Matterhorn pleaded with the audience to not get too unruly and shut down the event, but when Ishawna returned to the stage her microphone wasn’t working after getting soaked. “You know say that’s how my thing set, always excitement,” Ishawna told Onstage TV. “Festivities on top of festivities… The show was fun, the women came out for me, so all the men that are upset.”
Ishawna is living out her equal rights fantasies on stage during her performances, just take a peek at the video clip below.
Ishawna’s career has been marred by controversy since the start of the year. In April, she released a raunchy single “Equal Rights.” While she got a lot of support from her female fans, she did get some backlash from some of her male fans and also from some local politicians who called for the single to be banned from the airwaves. That didn’t stop Ishawna from performing the single especially overseas.
Last weekend, the dancehall diva was performing the song in Hartford, CT, when she called a male fan on stage and sat in his face, much similar to the lyrics where she sings, “Bumper to your forehead / Show me wha’ your tongue can do / If you nuh have it inna waist, you better have it inna face.” Nevertheless, this fan seems to enjoy every bit of the performance, but let’s hope he is not a married man.
Ishawna is again looking for new management after being dropped by Donsome.
The controversial dancehall diva got some backlash on social media last weekend for what some of his fans call her gross disrespect of Jamaican cultural icon Miss Lou. Seems the backlash was enough to prompt the company that is managing her career and doing her bookings to part ways with her. Donsome Booking Agency, run by Adrian Donsome Hanson, confirmed the split in a statement sent to the media.
Despite the split, the company said in its statement that they will honor prior booking made before July 2017, but will no longer be doing future bookings and representation of the artist. Ishawna also confirmed the separation when she abruptly changed her booking contacts on her social media accounts. Donsome didn’t give a specific reason for dropping the “Equal Rights” deejay, but her fans are already concluding that her Miss Lou comments may have been the last straw.
Ishawna finds herself again at the center of some fresh controversies that have nothing to do with her music.
Last weekend, the “Equal Rights” singer posted a smoking hot photo of herself on her Instagram page and captioned it, “Mi nuh dress inna tablecloth like Miss Lou #RipMissLou.” Her Jamaican fans think that she was disrespecting the late Jamaican icon who is celebrated as the mother of Jamaican culture.
“Ishawna u a my artist and mi rate u but u should think before u make that caption abt miss lou,” one fan wrote in the comments, while another fan added, “See what happen is that we lost our way as a people we have no respect for the true patriots and people who paved the way for us. This is by no means an attack on the artist but she really went way over the line Miss Lou was one of the persons who fought for our culture and wearing the “bandanna” it symbolizes a bit of our culture and for her to refer to it in a diragietory (derogatory) term as “table cloth” shows no respect and frankly straight up ignorance to the legacy of a real Jamaican icon.”
A rep for Ishawna told DHH that she meant no disrespect to Miss Lou and was merely expressing herself regarding her outfit. “She meant no disrespect people are just reaching with this one,” her rep said. Ishawna recently got some backlash from dancehall fans for her raunchy single “Equal Rights.”
