Sister Marion, who, as Lady Saw dominated the United States tri-state region for over 20 years, is dismissing allegations that she will be making a grand return to Dancehall despite her recent much-publicised conversion to Christianity.
Rumors surfaced on social media since last week claiming that the former Dancehall queen Marion Hall could be taking the stage at Reggae Sumfest as her former moniker, Lady Saw.
A representative for Sister Marion reportedly told media reporters that singer will not be returning to the hardcore genre and is currently working on a gospel album, due later this year.
“Marion will not be returning to hardcore dancehall she been there done that so she is turning a new page in her life now,” her rep told reporters.
“People should allow her to make this journey without all this unnecessary criticism and negativity. Stop all this ridiculous rumors now and let a good woman answer to her calling. Her real fans can look out for her new reggae gospel album coming out soon,” the source added.
Also, Marion has been reportedly working on the album with Sly and Robbie over the past few months. She confirmed the album on her Instagram page recently.
“One more song and my album is done,” she wrote.
“Thanks to sly and Robbie. Reggae Jesus. I want u to meet my Jesus cause I know he has something to do with the way you play that keyboard. Thank u all. Chris sqiddly Erny spicy Bowie Danny and more. The album full a holy Ghost.”
Lady Saw was baptised at the Emmanuel Apostolic Church on Slipe Road in Kingston in late December.
She made her name as a hardcore dancehall act during the late 1980s and 1990s. Many of her shows took place in the tri-state region (which also includes New Jersey) which has a massive West Indian and dancehall following.
Most of Lady Saw’s popular songs and albums including 1996’s Give Me A Reason were distributed by VP Records which has headquarters in Queens, New York.
