The Unruly Boss Popcaan has found himself on the wrong side of Double Tap artist and social media personality Queen Ladi Gangsta, aka Queenie, after a perceived slight at the Wray and Nephew concert, headlined by Beenie Man in London, on Friday night.
The drama began brewing after Queenie uploaded an invective-laden video which she took on her way from the event, aimed at the Forever artist, accusing him of disrespecting her by abruptly walking off after she was trying to exchange pleasantries with him.
A short while after, she posted a video clip of the exchange between herself and Popcaan, which showed her holding him and trying to steer him toward her so he could be in the frame of her camera.
“Hey man, a you dis? Hey St. Thomas man. A di queen dis…,” she is heard saying.
However, Popcaan, seemingly taken aback at her forwardness, can be heard saying a few words, seemingly of disapproval about the manner in which he was approached, based on his tone and body language. Following that Queenie can be heard muttering: “A di fuss mi si yuh inna real life. Das why mi hug yuh up.”
But Popcaan, seemingly still annoyed, unceremoniously takes his leave, leaving Queenie mortified.
She then posted four other videos, all intended at hammering the Unruly Boss.
At bedtime, Queenie was up in her bed cursing Popcaan in what seemed to be a heralding of the upcoming all-day crusade against the St. Thomas native. It was at that point that it became apparent what Popcaan had said to Queenie as she said that he had claimed that she had “pulled” him, thus his vexed response.
At daybreak, on Saturday she was at it again in a tirade aimed at guaranteeing that Miss Rhona’s son had no peace. Outdoors now, she got out of her car and declared, among other things that she would accept no apology from Popcaan, that she was taken to the VIP section of the venue by Wray and Nephew officials and was speaking to Beenie Man when Popcaan walked by and she used the opportunity to converse with him.
In her next one-minute video she continued the tirade, saying that Popcaan was at the VIP section where the artists, celebrities and “important people” were and “insulted” her there.
Queenie’s onslaught reached a crescendo after Popcaan posted a now-deleted, provocative post on his Instagram Stories which said: “Couple IG followers mek dem swear dem a celebrity… so sad”, along with some laughing emoticons.
Queenie shared Popcaan’s post, but not before ripping into the Numbers Don’t Lie artist, in her penultimate post.
“Suh, a only celebrity yuh acknowledge? Gweh! Drake don’t like yuh! Ongle sing yuh sing! Mi do every bloodclaat ting; mi cuss; preach, mi counsel; mi a madda. Mi a wife. Mi a queen. A wha happen to yuh Popcaan? Get ahold a yuh dirty bloodclaat self . Yuh gone too far. A who yuh dis? A who yuh insult? Oonu haffi guh kill bloodclaat me. Memba mi tell oonu bombo hole dat. Till death do us bloodclaat part,” she shouted.
“Caw mi neva did a guh stay silent. An anybaddy weh sen mi any bloodclaat threat, mi life deh pony uh bloodclaat head. Hear dat. F-ck yuh feel like, bout likkle IG followers. I am a celebrity! Weh di f-ck? A you alone a celebrity? You is jus a singer. All if di people dem nuh hear yuh song dem nuh memba yuh…,” she ranted.
Seemingly satisfied that she had effectively told off Popcaan orally, she resorted to giving him a word of caution about his future interactions with fans, from a biblical perspective, but punctuated with expletives.
“The number of flowers u have does not make u better than any 1…. Hitler had millions
Here are some fan reactions to the Popcaan and Queenie beef.
I’m still stuck on the fact that Queenie said that she and Popcaan a struggle fi a Grammy. I’m stuck on the fact that it’s true.

Popcaan is a church bwoy. He rather go swim in a river with his friends and cook breadfruit on an open fire then go to a British Link up party. That’s why he doesn’t know anybody in the dancehall community.

This Queenie Popcaan ting is a tough one….so far, there’s nothing to say that Popcaan said anything wrong…..she engaged him and instead of responding – he walked off.
Popcaan is a celeb now but putting you camera in Ghetto yute face jus so is a risky thing……

When Popcaan realized she was harmless he could’ve responded politely.
She was a fan and sometime fans go crazy for their idols we see it all the time.

Most celebrities when approached by fans or whoever worldwide react the same or sometimes worse but everyone would be ready for Popcaan because a Popcaan. This noise is unnecessary

Popcaan is not wrong because he ain’t entitled to speak to anyone he don’t want to.
Queenie is not wrong because the two of them inna VIP fi Beenie and she was just showing love.
I don’t think either of them wrong lol it’s funny and entertaining tho.
