The Diva Lady G to stamp her class on Sting
What would Sting be without the divas? This year, the three ladies who have distinguished themselves and have earned the title ‘divas’ are Lady G, Patra and Juni Platinum.
All three have enjoyed success in the dancehall at various levels, with Lady G handling herself in a masterful way. The ever-fresh Lady G, has been deejaying from ‘back in the days’ and has consistently maintained a degree of currency in the dancehall. Every year, Lady G is sure to be found on one of the hot riddims rocking the dance.
Lady G has been recording professionally since the age of 15 and has been delivering hit records for over 20 years. It was the 1988 hit, Nuff Respect, produced by Augustus ‘Gussie’ Clarke that turned Lady G into a household name. She also had a massive hit with longtime friend Papa San with the song, Legal Right and more later scored on the charts with the single Breeze Off.
In the 1990s, she teamed with then Main Street colleague Crissy D on Girls like Us which entered the British charts and saw the artistes performing on Top of The Pops (television show) in England.
In the past few months, Lady G’s name has been ringing with the delicately balanced combination single with Lovindeer, That Question, which asks the question, ‘You eat’, with the response being, ‘You cook?’ This question-and-answer has become one of the biggest talks in dancehall.
G, as she is affectionately called, is sure to stamp her class in this divas segment of Sting. Watch out!
