Following a disparaging comment selector Foota Hype made about her, D’Angel says she refuses to focus on negativity.
In what can be deemed as the current dancehall soap opera, Foota Hype has been making the rounds with less than favourable comments about his ex-fiancée Ishawna, producer Skatta and Downsound Records CEO Joseph Bogdanovich.
Although not involved in the situation in any way, D’Angel somehow got dragged into a 14-minute long interview with Foota Hype that was posted on YouTube.
Foota Hype vented about the songs, Restraining Order and Cry Baby, that were done by Ishawna, claiming that they were disrespectful. He also alleged that Ishawna is involved with both Skatta and Bogdanovich.
But he did not stop there.
“When she a do dem song deh, it really aggravate me because you a talk bout mi a stalk you and a terrorise you and you know mi not even a look at you. When mi see yuh mi see scum, mi see dirt, she worse than D’Angel,” he said.
D’Angel, who is on tour in England, says she is disappointed by Foota’s comments.
“It is sad to see how someone can stoop so low and tarnish my reputation. It is sad to see how far someone will go to get a hype,” said D’Angel.
“No one has the power to take away what I built over a decade. Right now I am soaring to higher heights. I don’t embrace negativity, especially from a man. I have a son and I would never allow him to disrespect a woman. I empower women,” she said.
With her English tour in full swing, D’Angel says she is focusing on her career.
“It’s all about Team D’Angel. I am the same woman that sing Stronger and I Am Unstoppable. I am the same D’Angel that rise like a phoenix. I am above that (Foota’s comments),” she told THE Weekend STAR.
As for her tour, she said it has been going well.
“It has been amazing, the people greet me so warm and it shows you the power of music. I am helping to build brand Jamaica and rise back our music and open doors for my co-workers. I am about strengthening people, not about tearing down people,” D’Angel said.
