Seems there is a new Gaza beef between Vybz Kartel’s baby mama Short and his proteges Lisa Hyper and Jodi Couture.
The Portmore Empire/GAZA has always been a place of controversy, but Vybz Kartel’s physical presence has always kept the critics at bay. Sadly, the Worl’boss’ imprisonment seems to have left a whole bunch of holes unplugged and the ladies of the GAZA are finally filling in the public on the power struggles among the female, and it seems many of it was bred out of what took place between them and Kartel while in the physical Romping Shop.
The first to break their silence seemed to be Sheba after she not only detailed the beef she had with fellow labelmate Gaza Slim but also confirmed that Kartel’s longtime baby mother, Tanesha’ Shorty’ Johnson, had no problems with it. According to Sheba, while speaking on an Instagram LIVE session with DJ Lava, “You never see me and Shorty inna no argument. Shorty no inna fighting wid gyal cause she know her position. So me no see why girl who no own the h**d have me up.”
In a separate IG LIVE session, Dj Lava was speaking to Lisa Hyper when a fan questioned who was the real “first lady” of the Portmore Empire. The question was based on recent claims by US-based rapper/singer Jodi Couture of herself being the “Gaza First Lady.” Not only were the words written in her Instagram bio but she has also got some a Adidja themed ink on her shoulder, proving her loyalty. She has also released 3 singles with Vybz Kartel, “Sky Map,” “Backshot,” and “Never Walk Alone,” which landed on Kartel’s To Tanesha album that was released in January.
However, does Couture have any claims the crown? Lisa Hyper doesn’t think so. “There can’t be two first lady, just pree it logically speaking,” Hyper responded while speaking with Dj Lava. “Inna every organisation there’s a hierarchy, there can’t be two first lady. I am the, and one and only first lady no matter who come and go.”
She continued, “There’s no ending to me and Adidja Palmer, no ending to me and Vybz Kartel. From mi a five mi know him, unno leave it alone. So if unno a come and get unno buss unno come and get unno buss. Shorty did seh one time seh bi–hes come and go and yuh see if mi nuh like yuh and Shorty nuh like yuh, yuh nuh safe… especially if Shorty nuh like yuh cause a she a di boss…yuh nah go mek it pon the Gaza.”
Jodi seemingly caught wind of what went down on Lava’s IG session and stood her ground as an entertainer meanwhile calling for Lisa and any other naysayers to keep their mouths shut. “Don’t involve yourself,” she beckoned.
