Spice critics have been going in on her about her accent on “Love and Hip Hop: Atlanta.”
Spice is the newest cast member of “Love and Hip Hop: Atlanta” and already she is making her presence felt. LHHATL season 7 premieres next week Monday and VH1 gave us a glimpse of the drama coming this season. At the center of it all is Jamaican dancehall sensation Spice, who is getting a lot of support from her fans. Still, there is still a small segment of her local fanbase who is criticizing her accent on the show and she is responding to that.
“My introduction to #LHHATL just a quick note for Fyi to those of you who keep complaining why I’m not speaking only “patois” I went on this platform to capture a wider audience and to gain more international fans,” Spice wrote on IG. “If I speak patwa that only “Jamaicans” can understand then I’ll defeat the purpose of this opportunity. When miss Jamaica goes out to represent the country “ Mi never hear none a dem a chat bad” so why now unu quick fi have a problem when I try to make the audience understand who I am. Have a Smurferific day.”
In the first official trailer for Love and Hip Hop: Atlanta season seven, Spice got into a fight with another female. We will have to wait to watch the show to find out what really happened since this was only a sneak peek.
Spice is now living in Atlanta full time as she gets comfortable to being a regular on the hit reality show, but she says she is still living in Jamaica. Her first order of business is to broaden her career into the hip hop market. Her debut rap single “Duffle Bag” is currently on the airwaves and the video is out.
