Ever since her sizzling freestyle video hit social media, talks of dancehall princess Shenseea possibly usurping Spice for the coveted dancehall queen throne has taken on a life of its own.
While Shenseea is not keen on talks about crowns and titles, MC Nuffy insists that "Spice crown gone clean".
"Yuh think king and queen position easy to take? Lady Saw affi go weh leave her position and only one person was there to take it up, and that was Spice. She did her thing, made some great moves for dancehall, but now she buck," he said.
"Dis (Shenseea) is the new girl. If yuh notice everybody a give her female artiste a di year fi 2020 and a supmn dem can't deny. When Spice did fi get it, she get it. So now it may look a way to some people, but she (Shenseea) earn every success coming her way.

Nuh see all Missy Elliot a comment pan the girl thing. Yuh think Missy Elliot blind? The big dancehall crossover can happen anytime now because this is the girl."
Well aware of the backlash he may receive for 'crowning' Shenseea the dancehall queen-elect, Nuffy sought to make it clear that his choice has nothing to do with the fact that he and Spice "nuh deal".
"When she fi get praise, she get it. But a just facts mi a talk. I did give Spice the princess of dancehall when she just start because Lady Saw was queen, and I tell her say she was going to be queen when Lady Saw leave the industry. I know champions," he said.
