Turbulence_and_Sasha.jpgFormer lovers-turned-rivals Sasha and Turbulence have embarked on a lyrical war of sorts on the new Downsound Records' 'Sika' rhythm. The songs have been creating quite a buzz in dancehall circles as they are centred around the couple's juicy break-up last year.

Just two years ago, the two basked in the glow of their relationship, recording popular songs such as 'Natty Pon Di Frontline' and the hit single, 'We've Got The Love', with an accompanying video that seemed
to cement their blossoming relationship.

However, the entertainers' relationship soured late last year after Sasha found out about Turbulence's 'extra-curricular' activities outside their relationship. All that was months ago, but last week,
Turbulance recorded a single called 'No Man No Perfect' and Sasha returned fire with the well-written 'Got What You Need'.

Turbulance's single, 'No Man No Perfect' in part, mocks the ex-couple's 'We've Got The Love' song, and suggests that it was rumour-mongering that caused the end of their Relationship, and declared in no uncertain terms that "mi nah look yu back".

For her part, Sasha replied with 'Got What You Need', a competent rebuttal of Turbulance's comments. There are some choice lines such as 'mi know yuh a man and mi muss get bun, but sex without a condom a careless fun'. But she also pokes fun at him using a man's voice to illustrate how Turbulance tried to justify his actions by saying:
"Selassie I Jah Rastafari, a jacket dem a gi I, anno lie I a lie."

Here is a snippet of Sasha's song.
Intro
Balance there seems to be some disturbance
Mi neva dream it coulda end like this
Ha Ha
Fence up yu argument yu hear dat

Verse 1
Come talk the truth yu know yu violate the thing
Yu know yu wrong and now a words yu a fling
Yu dis the Queen but mi naaw dis the King
Mi hear yu sing the song so mi go find the riddim
A yu true side me did really in needa
Not the other side weh yu a show to the media
Yu know whey you do and yu know yu a cheata
Mi neva gi yu bun caa mi no Delsita
Mi know yu a man and mi mus get bun
But sex without condom a careless fun
Things outta road and mi no waan none
The wild wild west dem route mi no run

Chorus
God a the head and man and man a the head a woman
And what you give is what you get dat yu fi understand
You get the blame cause a you mash up the plan
You got what you need got what you need got what you
need
God a the head and man and man a the head a woman
And what you give is what you get dat yu fi understand
You get the blame cause a you mash up the plan
You got what you need got what you need got what you
need

Turbulence's song was the one that irked Sasha enough
for her to reply lyrically to his accusations. Here
are the lyrics to his song:
Hear mi no
You spreading rumours on the King
Yu betta hole the discipline
You spreading rumours on the King
Ooh Nooo
Verse 1
We had the love but now it is gone
Mi no dead yow mi still a carry on
She tell mi seh she a go cut, Yow mi tell har fi gwaan
She assume sey mi have a gal farm
She sey mi got 3 kids a road and 3 more fi born
Sey mi disrespect har anytime mi a perform
Sey mi call har name inna derogatory form
Man a rasta, fans tell mi how dat fi gwaan
Wish you the best in the future to come
I hope you find a man weh naaw go gi yu no bun
I wish you all the happiness the joy and the fun
Still mi naaw look you back the relationship done

Chorus
No man no perfect no man a no God
Tell me if its worth it yu friends make you sad
True rumors yu run off and get mad
And now you blame it on me blame it on me blame it on me
No man no perfect no man a no God
Tell me if its worth it yu friends make you sad
True rumors yu run off and get mad
And then you blame it on me blame it on me blame it on me.

Anyway, in the meantime, most people are quietly surprised that this friction has cropped up now. Sources close to Turbulence believe that it was a recent appearance by Sasha on CVM/'s 'Onstage' show hosted by Winford Williams that ticked him off. Turbulance, whose latest album, the intriguingly titled 'X-Girlfriend' was just released, could not be reached for comment, but sources close to the deejay revealed that he was upset about one comment in particular when she said: "He is not the same person I met..." Now, with the songs being leaked to commercial radio, conversations have turned to the relationship and the 'passa passa' surrounding the new songs. When contacted, Sasha refused to comment on the relationship, but did say:

"I heard his song, so I did my song...I am not into it anymore, and I am not doing anything else about it, there will be no more replies from me," she said.

Asked if there was anything in particular about the CVM interview that might have upset Turbulance, she responded curtly:

"I don't know. No comment."
Sources close to both artistes said that the couples' break-up happened when Sasha found out that Turbulance had gotten engaged to Sasha and another girl at the same time. Later, as luck would have it, Sasha and the girl, who is younger than Sasha, became
friends and soon found out about Turbulance's duplicity. Both women went to his mother's house, and there was a 'hataclaps' where all things were revealed. After that, Sasha broke up with him, but
Turbulance reportedly continued his relationship with the other woman.
