Why Most Female Dancehall Artistes Are Single: Successful Career or Public Criticism?

Being in the entertainment industry can put a strain on one’s personal life. Despite the perks that come with fame, the spotlight also brings public scrutiny, which has been speculated to be a big issue affecting the relationship of most female entertainers.

Amidst the ongoing saga with regard to Shaneil Muir’s relationship status, the question has been raised as to what is the main issue for the relationship ship failure of most female dancehall entertainers. “Probably the only issue that is destroying the relationship is public pressure,” one person stated on Facebook.

However, the Top Gyal artiste defended her boyfriend against comments criticising his appearance and showed off her love. Recently, she mentioned her ex-boyfriend cheating on her and posted a statement indicating that she is now single.
