Kingston, Jamaica( McKoy’s News) – Ishawna Responds to Dissing Miss Lou: Ishawna has finally come forward to address her comments fired at the late legendary Jamaican poet Miss Lou (Louise Bennett-Coverley) earlier this month.
She got fans irate when she justified her raunchy outfits saying she will not wear “Tablecloth” like Miss Lou. “Mi nuh dress inna tablecloth like Miss Lou,” Ishawna wrote.
“#Rip Miss Lou,” she added.
Since Ishawna’s remark, a number of Jamaican personalities have expressed their disgust at the “Equal Rights” singer, at Reggae Sumfest 2017 on Dancehall Night. Miss Kitty, the “Fluffy Diva” made reference to Ishawna as a ‘dish towel’ and hinted that she was illiterate. “No dish towel cyaa diss Miss Lou no time, yuh mad?” she asked the crowd. “Big up all the gyal dem weh read and write, brain and brains and these things” she added.
Ishawna took to her Instagram on Sunday, July 23, speaking briefly with her fans for the first time on the subject. “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 stated. “She suppose to wear bandana, mi seh no table cloth a that mi seh, mi nuh really response,” she added.
Ishawna then shared the cause for her absence from Reggae Sumfest 2017. The “Restraining Order” singer also revealed that she couldn’t care less about what critics have to say about her remarks on Miss Lou’s tablecloth.
Furthermore, she saluted Vybz Kartel while promoting their collaborative single “Washer & Dryer.”
