Lady Saw has walked away from danchehall and Nicki Minaj might be getting ready to walk away from hip hop.
The Christian community is happy to have former dancehall artiste, Lady Saw joining them.
Lady Saw whose real name is Marion Hall has had tongues wagging since Monday evening when she decided to get baptized after admitting that she is now a a “new servant of the Lord.”
Meanwhile, Nicki Minaj might be contemplating following in Lady Saw’s footsteps. Immediately after Lady Saw was baptized, Nicki Minaj took to twitter quoting bible verses.
Her first tweet after Lady Saw’s baptism said “Every tongue that rises up against me in judgement shall be condemned,” taken from Isaiah 54:17 which says:
No weapon that is formed against thee shall prosper; and every tongue that shall rise against thee in judgment thou shalt condemn. This is the heritage of the servants of the Lord, and their righteousness is of Me, saith the Lord.
Whether Nicki Minaj will be getting baptized anytime soon remains to be seen.
Though some were critical of Lady Saw, she has full support from gospel artistes who like Saw, were once members of the dancehall fraternity.
“Persons gave me two weeks to backslide, but they didn’t tell me which year. I’m still here. I will tell Marion to listen to God, not man because man look on the outward but God examines the heart,” said gospel artiste, Lt. Stitchie.
Meanwhile, Papa San who now resides in Florida was in a more than jubilant mood when 18 Karat Reggae contacted him.
“Oh my God, I am rejoicing. I want her to know that we love her and we are just rejoicing,” an excited Papa San said.
“We stand with her, we stand in prayer with her and we want people to recognise that God can change any person. He didn’t come to call the righteous, He came to call the sinner. What I would encourage Lady Saw to do and that’s what I did – get herself embedded in bible studies. She has to get into the word of God and feed her Spirit-man. The music will always be there, God gifted her in that area so just get into the word of God,” Papa San said.
