The dance-hall diva swayed in on the feud between Kaakie and Mzvee about who was the dance-hall queen. She explained that to her, she thinks the title is an open one which can be taken by anyone because there hasn’t been an official declaration on who was the dance-hall queen. “the thing is either of them can take their dance-hall title but if I do dance-hall and I slay at it, I can call myself the dance-hall queen or a king if I think am better than the men. If either of them think they slay at dance-hall and they want to call themselves dance-hall queens, cool but nobody has officially been announced as the dance-hall queen of Ghana. I give it to Kaakie though.”
