Dancehall star Lady Saw, who now identifies herself as Minister Marison Hall, has reached out too the executive producer of Power Book ll, 50 Cent to pay up for using her classic hit in one of his Ghost Episodes.
In a mildly tuned message, she shared on social media, Saw said she is still looking forward tpbbeinh financially rewarded by Fif for using her song in the first episode of the spin-off for 50 Cent’s hit series, which aired in 2020.
Lady Saw has previously revealed her frustration with people using her creative works for their benefits without involving her. She sadly recounted the moment it went down while speaking to Tamara McKayle on her ‘The Trailblazers Show’ last November.
She mentioned that her country hit “Give Me A Reason,” which was released in 1996, to numerous samples and covers which she has not benefited from.
“Even with vitamin C – put a smile on your face’…that song was used by Hershey bar. I was in Jamaica watching it play on all these soap aperas. Adam Sandler movie, How Stella Got Her Groove Back… Even just recently they used one of my dirty Lady Saw songs in Power with 50 Cent,” she had further highlighted.
This is why she does not want his particular case with 50 Cent slide without demanding for the appropriate thing to be done. She shared her direct messaged addressed to the rapper on social media saying;
“I know you got some money for me, for using one of my songs in one of your power episodes. Or you might have given it to someone, who’s been taking my money, and not giving it to me cause I haven’t gotten paid for that song, or any other songs that was used in other movies,” she clarified to 50 Cent a recent post on his Instagram page.
“I use to go by the name Lady Saw. With all due respect. I need to know who to go to, so i can collect what is mine. I know you’re a respectable business man, and wouldn’t mind of you could produce a movie about my life. Look me up, and see if my story, interest you. I did send you a private message before, but I know you must have gotten so many messages, that some get lost in the trash. I hope this one don’t.”
