Following the popularity of a recording made by actor Keith 'Shebada' Ramsey, dancehall personality Lena British says she is not the woman the actor was referring to.

Suffering from the flu at her home in the United Kingdom, Lena British says she was awakened by phone calls this week from persons claiming that they heard a voice note with Shebada hurling insults at her.

In the voice note that was laced with insults, Shebada said, "Dawn, tell Lena nuh hate yuh fi yuh age...A wah do Lena British? Mi will class har enuh...Tell Lena fi leave yuh alone 'cause yuh cute..Tell Lena seh she used to tek Assassin and Assassin lef har."

But Lena British, who lives in England, is insisting that she is not the woman in question. She said when she heard about it initially she did not believe, as she does not know Shebada personally.

"I didn't take notice of it but when I put my phone down, my BlackBerry had about a hundred messages on there and I started getting phone calls," she told THE STAR.

"I don't know that Lena British that Shebada is talking about, but it is not the one in England, it is not me. It doesn't sound good because nobody is aware of that Lena British, they know me. You are going to have people thinking that it is me," she said.

While she has responded to several people, she says she is unable to respond to everyone since the recording has found its way on several popular websites.

"I could not defend myself to so many people. I don't want anybody to think that I am having an affair with a married man (dancehall artiste Assassin) 'cause that is not me, that's not what I am about," she said.

After much effort, Lena British said she eventually got in contact with Shebada's manager who also confirmed that she was not the woman the actor was referring to. Following that, Shebada also released another voice note stating that the recording was done over a year ago about another person, who also goes by the name Lena British.

"Mi send out a voice note early last year to one a mi friend a Cayman name Dawn seh wi a chat Lena British from Cayman. Mi nuh know Lena British from England, a hear mi hear bout her. And she a veteran inna di business, so mi nuh want people get the thing twisted. Is not Lena British from England mi a talk, so don't get the thing twisted," he said.
