Spice is hitting back at social media users who have been criticising the way she speaks on American TV.

The Dancehall artiste is featured in the new season of VH1’s smash hit series “Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta.” Since footage of the ‘Duffle Bag’ deejay began to circulate online, many have trolled Spice claiming that she is ‘twanging’ and pretending to be someone she is not.

Like most topics, Spice has been tight-lipped until now. On Wednesday, the newly crowned ‘Queen of Dancehall’ took to Instagram and wrote; “My introduction to [Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta] just a quick note for 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.”
