Ishawna is set to hit the big screens soon as after inking a movie deal with American film company, Royalty and Respect Films.
The “Slippery When Wet” singer is slated to play a supporting role in an upcoming movie as early as next year.
Her character will be a talented dancehall deejay who is working as a dancer, while waiting on her big break.
Monty Green, CEO of Royalty and Respect Films, told reporters that he was pleased to have Ishawna on-board, as he believes the Dancehall artist is a natural talent and will prove to be a good fit for the role.
The film producer disclosed that he met the artist while scouting for shooting locations last year.
Green remained tight-lipped with much of the details of the movie but revealed that Ishawna would be casting alongside a Dancehall deejay.
“It’ s a real rags to riches story, rooted in the gangster and drug culture of Jamaica. The script is not finalised yet, but we hope to start filming before the end of this year,” said expressed.
He said the indie film’s last movie, ‘Lost’, was a hit and even recognized by the Filmmaker international Film Festival Award, which took place in London, copping two awards, one for best film and the other for the talented former Instagram model LaToya Ward for best actress.
Ishawna told reporters that it is an “honour to be cast in a movie”.
“And you know girl a just be festive and make my fan base proud because girl a deal with tings like a boss not a sketel. I also have some huge collaborations coming up with some Grammy award winning artist and some hot rappers in the USA,” Ishawna said.
Ishawna is currently riding high on the success of her most recent singles “Slippery When Wet” and “One And Lose.”
The controversial Jamaican entertainer is also in heavy demand at parties here and in the USA especially because of her loyal female fan base.
