Spice recently held a dance-off competition to promote her hit single “Cool It” at Uptown Mondays in Kingston, Jamaica.
The best performing dancers received giveaways such as refrigerators, fans, microwaves, and irons.
Taking to Instagram on Tuesday, Spice shared two videos of the dancers performing in competition for a chance to win an electronic appliance.
