With just days before the first episode of Love & Hip-Hop Atlanta season seven, Spice has revealed the reason why she joined the cast.
Since news surfaced last month that the newly crowned ‘Queen of Dancehall’ was added to the lineup of the VH1 smash hit reality series show, Dancehall fans have been sharing mixed reactions.
While many lauded Spice citing that she definitely is “stepping up her game and securing the bag”, others criticised the move claiming the ‘Needle Eye’ deejay has “lowered her standards and will be damaging her brand.”
Needless to say, Spice doesn’t care about what Dancehall critics have to say. According to her, she believes joining the popular docu-soap franchise is a major milestone in her career.
Spice, whose real name is Grace Hamilton added that Jamaicans and the Dancehall fraternity should be proud of her as she will be bringing the culture to a wider audience.
Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta is the highest-rated instalment of the Love & Hip Hop franchise, which is itself one of the highest-rated franchises in cable television history. Last year the sixth series premiere garnered big ratings for the network, with VH1 announcing a combined rating of 5.2 million viewers.

My introduction to #LHHATL just a quick note Fyi to those of you who keep complaining why I’m not speaking only “patois” I went on this platform to capture a wider audience and to gain more international fans. If I speak patwa that only “Jamaicans” can understand then I’ll defeat the purpose of this opportunity. When miss jamaica goes out to represent the country “ Mi never hear none a dem a chat bad” so why now unu quick fi have a problem when I try to make the audience understand who I am 🤔. Have a Smurferific day 🤪💙💙💙💙 #spiceofficial #Queenofthedancehall #queenofstage #dancehall
