Reggae icon Tanya Stephens took to Facebook to throw a few shades at the former Dancehall queen who is now a devote Christian following her baptism last week Monday (Dec 14).
Tanya Stephens stopped short of calling Lady Saw mentally ill and says that she want an apology for something that went down in the past, Hype Life Magazine has learned.
“Incidentally… I’m listening out for a clear and detailed apology first to Lady G and then to myself. Maybe then I’ll think it’s a little less laughable. A no di one weh s@#% a pass memba, a di one weh tep in deh! Jamaica, for the new year you simply must stop misdiagnosing mental illness and bad behaviour of spoilt brats,” Tanya Stephens posted via Facebook on Tuesday (Dec 22).

That statement drew some harsh criticisms from Lady Saw fans who flooded her wall with angry comments.
“I love you and your music but this is just petty your a grown a@% woman throwing shade at Lady Saw smh. Instead of wishing her the best your over here trying to sarcastic damn your just bitter as f*^%,” one person commented under Stephens’ post.
“Tanya I love your songs as well but honestly what u said was really childish… Bcz simply put Lady Saw made it right with God now and isn’t holding any grudges right.. Whether you accept her apology or not she don’t haven’t u up in her heart and irregardless of the fact that she may have hurt others in the past I think its rel grown of her to make the move that she did by apologising whether it wants to be accepted or not. Come on now man,” another person said.
Though the defenders of Lady Saw came out in their numbers, Stephens, who refused to mention a name in her post, was not letting up.
“Apologise to the world fi born,” she continued underneath the thread.
“Jus a laugh afta di eediat dem out deh weh a try defend it like dem know noten! If everybody fi start talk bout da craases deh a woulda group therapy needed and a only stadium coulda hold we! Think it nice???? Struuups,” she said in response to a comment.
Stephens was relentless in defending her point, so too were the fans of Lady Saw, who believed her opinion was immature.
Lady Saw has been getting a lot of support since her conversion to Chrisianity including Dancehall legend Ninja Man, who praised her move calling it the greatest in Dancehall history.
