Does dancehall have a hot new couple?
That is the question many dancehall pundits are asking after the release of a raunchy new single by former dancehall queen and international dancer Queen Nikki and fast rising deejay Sanka. The accompanying music video for the single which is entitled Best Wi Eva Feel racked up over 22,000 streams within a few hours of its release with several top flight vloggers immediately raising the question as to whether or not they were in a relationship based on how “comfortable” they appeared to be with each other on screen.
The fact that they are both under the management of Boysie Records/IClips Records who is also responsible for the rise of Intence and I waata further increases speculation that the two dancehall acts are spending a lot of time together and may be bonding musically and in other ways. But according to their manager Boysie he believes in unity in his camp and both artistes are adults so they are free to date who ever they want.
“My artistes are adults so i don’t get into their personal lives so if dem deh or not is their business all i know is they make great music together and so far its been a pleasure managing both of them. They are both very talented, hardworking, focused and they listen. Right now we just putting in the ground work to add two more superstars to dancehall music and the world knows that i know how to create stars already so look out. By the way big up Intence and Iwaata dem cause a still my picney dem all when dem unrully”Boysie stated
