Since the conversion of popular dancehall entertainer Marion “Lady Saw” Hall from the dancehall fraternity where she was known to many as the ‘Queen of the Dancehall’, to the gospel fraternity where she is now referred to as ‘Minister Marion Hall’, many have been speculating as to who will be the new female face in the dancehall industry to hold the title of ‘Queen’.
Grace “Spice” Hamilton, dancehall entertainer and entrepreneur, has been making her name and claim to fame in the dancehall. Formerly known as the ‘runner up’ to Lady Saw’s lyrical prowess, Spice is now standing tall on the dancehall podium, ready to be crowned the new ‘Queen’ of the industry.
Now on her European tour and making rounds in numerous countries, the artiste is currently being well received by her fans and the yet to be fans who are speculating as to whether she is able to stand to the test and take the place recently left vacant by the former queen of the dancehall.
Lady Saw is a recently converted Christian who took the plunge into her new lifestyle after the tragic motor vehicle accident which left the late dancehall singjay J-Capri in hospital and later succumbing to her injuries much to the dismay of her adoring fans, members of the dancehall fraternity, friends and family. Before this new life, Lady Saw in her capacity as ‘Queen of the Dancehall’ received much recognition and much negativity from those who either adored her for her ability to captivate her audiences with her provocative performances and lyrics and those who maliced her for their inability to rid the former dancehall entertainer of her crown and place on the throne.
In Rennes, France last night on her “Neddle Eye Europe Tour”, Spice gave a performance to remember at the Mango Club which was hugely received by her fans who couldn’t get enough of the entertainer and her lyrical tenacity. One may say that this performance has staunched all criticism when it comes to the current leading lady in the dancehall industry. Her enthusiasm and demeanour in interacting with her fans paired with her confident performance left fans reeling, pleading for more and already begging for the entertainer’s return. In some of the videos posted on Spice’s official Instagram page recently, the entertainer can be seen dancing with male members of the crowd who were more than willing to attempt to keep up with Spice’s timely and provocative dance moves.
