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.
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.”
