Controversies and Scandals

Lady Squanda has made the headlines over the years but in the majority of those cases it has largely been for the wrong reasons. The controversies have been one too many ranging from fighting over a lover with a fellow dancehall artiste by the name Lipsy, allegedly stealing someone's song, turning up drunk[2] for shows to using inappropriate language in some of her songs. At one point she even went to the point of faking her own death. In 2013, it was reported that she had stolen a truck from fellow musician by the name Nashie. The song titled "Kuchibhorani" was at the centre of the storm, Nashie alleged that he had approached Squanda to offer assistance on the production of the song but Squanda charged too much for her services forcing Nashie to release the track on his own. Squanda is said to have gone on to produce her own version of the song forcing Nashie to seek redress.[3] Squanda however dismissed the allegations saying that the tracks had the same title but were very different in terms of lyrical content.

At the Star FM Dancehall Remedy first anniversary celebrations at the Mbare Netball Complex held in 2014, Squanda turned violent and attacked Lipsy when she hit her on the head after which she collapsed resulting in a police report being filed. Although Squanda claimed that Lipsy had initially called her a bitch via a WhatsApp message, Lipsy denied making contact with Squanda claiming that it was actually her first encounter with Squanda.[4] The rift between the two artistes was also attributed to the fact that the pair was allegedly dating the same guy only identified as Bolo.[2]

She made the news when she staged her own death and people even starting circulating condolence messages on various platforms while she was apparently at a friend's house in Manyame Park. She is said to have generated a text message which read as follows

Lady Squander was found dead yesterday after she drank rat poison. May her soul Rest in Peace, we love you girl[5]

which was sent to most of her contacts.
