Lady Saw Quitting Dancehall, “Been thinking of getting baptized”
Lady Saw would not be the first hardcore dancehall artist to quit the genre for gospel if she should follow through with her plans. But why it is more of a shock to her fans is because Saw took dancehall raunchiness to a whole new level, where she even influenced female artists in hip hop.
Lady Saw, who has been going through some relationship issues of late, dropped a few hints on Twitter last week that she may throw in the towel soon in favor for a more solemn genre, gospel.
This is what Lady Saw said on her Twitter feed:
“Been thinking of getting baptized from about six months now, but then some people draw me out and I end up cussing them out. Well not anymore.”
“I have some shows to do that I already got paid for so after that am out. Sometimes I am talking to God and I just find myself humming and coming up with melodies, so I am struggling with both sides because nobody is perfect. I have been talking to a lot of Christians, and I have been contemplating baptism, but I did that when I was younger because of my father, so maybe since this time it will be a renewal baptism.”
Church was good yesterday today its back. To business.

Clearly Lady Saw has been going through some spiritual transformation which is always a good thing.
Do you think Lady Saw would leave a void in dancehall if she should follow through on her plans?
