Mavado and Spice just released a new collaboration titled “Cheat On Me.”
But now it appears a bitter feud is brewing between the two dancehall stars over the release of the song.
According to Mavado, the producers snubbed his artist ShakOne when they released the single with Spice vocals.
“No disrespect to Spice whatso-ever,” Mavado said. “Me and Spice have been cool for years and she’s a great artiste, but the record was never intended for her to be on it.”
Spice, who was on tour in Europe, recently returned to Jamaica and fired back at Mavado calling his anger pety.
This is what Spice told the Star:
“I just came back from my European tour and I’m mad at
the producers for making me do a collab with Mavado without his
knowledge. Now that I’m back, I am hearing all sorts of stories, and I
just want it to be known that I was not aware of any other artiste or
artistes who were supposed to be on the track except Mavado. I was hired
to fill in a blank track with Mavado’s voice only, and I wrote my own
lyrics and filled in the missing parts.”
“I am now hearing that Mavado is trying to sabotage the track and
that he didn’t want to collab with me because I did a collab with
Kartel. That is so petty. All of this negative energy is unnecessary to
me right now, because I literally just landed and I have a lot of track
deadlines to meet for other people before I leave the island again.”
“I don’t want Mavado to think for one minute that I hijacked the
song, because that isn’t the case. This is an issue he should be
discussing with the relevant production parties and should have handled
the situation differently. And even though he’s in the streets and
online saying things, I’m going to be diplomatic and I’m still gonna
support his music and I wish him all the best.”
