Ongoing tensions between the self-proclaimed ‘Curvy Diva’ Yanique Barrett and fellow media personality, Miss Kitty, the Fluffy Diva, boiled over to fever pitch live on national television during Saturday night’s Magnum Kings and Queens of Dancehall show.
The two personalities seemed to be engage in a ‘tracing match’ on live TV that has dominated social media with fans weighing in on the ‘cass-cass’.
Egos clashed as words were thrown back and forth between the ‘Divas’, with Miss Kitty being the aggressor in the confrontation.
Miss Kitty left ignited her verbal attack, firstly on Cordel ‘Skatta’ Burrell, as she warned him “You said something last week..and you must ask before you get involved inna tings.”
Then she addressed Yanique Barrett.
“I just want to clear the air now, because mi a real woman, mi a real top gal a road so wi deal wid things directly. Some things have been said, and I just want to clear them up..you and I have no beef whatsoever. This manufactured beef is disingenuous, it is duplicitous, it doesn’t exist. The manufactured feud that we have doesn’t exist at all.”
At this time, Yanique attempted to interrupt saying: “it has been happening for a while, here is my thing though. No, no…mek she talk.”
Fluffy Diva then raised her voice and attempted to drown Yanique out.
“Just the same, to Jamaica I am all about empowerment , I am about empowering women, my career has been built on that, so let us do accomplishment. But mi love your song, Sheldon, mi like that, and in Jesus name, mek our accomplishments judge us.”
She continued:”The only thing I want to beef with ah my bank account, big up mi education, big up miself fi impress some more woman, and frighten some more woman, buss the blank and say lalalalalala!”.
An obviously upset Yanique then upbraided Ms Kitty on her choice to air the beef live on TV.
“Can I talk now? Can I talk now? Here is the situation, hold on I hear you, I am not stopping the show. We never have no beef, we didn’t. Instead of coming on air, We didn’t have no beef but my thing is, so instead of coming on air, how about addressing me? my dressing room is next to you, and it’s been awhile, so therefore you are doing it for the public. Kitty? Me this! Yanique. If we have an issue, you can come to my dressing room and say that. Let’s continue, let’s continue the show, it’s not a show, it’s not for the public, yu know where mi dressing room de!” she said, while members of the crowd bussed blanks for her strong rebuttal of Ms Kitty’s statements.
