Tifa and Stacious may have placed themselves in the line of fire but they believe it's a risk worth taking, if it will get them the justice they deserve. Both female artistes claim that they were treated with less respect than they deserved by organizers of the recently concluded Reggae Sumfest stage show.
The Dancehall Diva's gave rousing sets during their appearances on Reggae Sumfest's Dancehall Night Thursday July 19th. Despite the positive receptions and feedback they got from fans, both artistes insist that negative vibrations could be felt backstage as the highly regarded Dancehall divas have come forward with allegations of gender discrimination and prejudice following the treatment they received at Reggae Sumfest 2012.
Tifa and Stacious appeared on a television interview voicing their grievances regarding Sumfest while alleging that promoters of the stage show exercised bias throughout the night. According to Tifa, she's done enough in her career to warrant better treatment.
"10 o'clock I go on the stage and I feel like I've earned my place in Reggae/Dancehall, I've earned my time and my spotlight and my shine. I just feel like it was very disrespectful how dem deal wid it, like yuh haffi go pon stage now."
