The long standing feud between Lisa Hype and Spice which has been happening since 2009 … seem to have come to an end by an apology from Lisa Hype to Spice.
There was a lot of unpleasant things which were exchanged between both female Jamaican artistes. Mud slinging and rivalry … a bitter long standing feud since 2009.
There has been a female rivalry as to who is the queen of Gaza. It should be noted that these two female stars belong to the same Gaza Enterprise where Vybz Kartel was the king pin when on the streets.
Lisa Hype was burning up with the desire to apologise to Grace Hamilton aka Spice. So Lisa Hype went on to Instagram to issue her apology to Spice which goes as follows:
Lisa Hype speaking:
“How I really and truly feel about Spice, me haffi tell her to her face. All di great things weh she do fi dancehall weh me admire, in order fi tell her day to her face, mi affi apologise first because me disrespect her. She disrespected me too, but it takes two to start an argument.” Lisa Hype stated. Continuing Lisa Hype said:
“I was the ignorant one in all this, and so mi just wah do the right thing.”
Event in recent times has taught me that life is too short to hold grudges. On Wednesday last July 1, 2020 Lisa Hype also added:
“Spice I am sorry for how I allowed the traditions of war in our music made me feel and treated you”. Lisa went all to say: “You have done wonderful things for this business, females in the business and Jamaica. I want to let you know I’m humbled and I appreciate you. I’m not sure how this will play out, but from my heart I am sorry and I pray God intervenes where evildoers try to create any more animosity.” Lisa Hype further stated in her apology.
We are delighted that Lisa Hype has made the first step to bury the hatchet between these dancehall heavy weights. Time come!
