MISS BOSS is female clash champ - Crowned during Container Satdazs third anniversary
Hasani Walters, STAR Writer
Miss Boss made short work of her opponent Ming Khaotik on Saturday night as the two squared off in the finals of the Container Female Promoters Selecting Competition. The competition is a feature of the Container Satdazs event.
From her introduction to the stage to her musical selections, Miss Boss was miles ahead of her opponent on the night.
Clad in full black, with a replica AK-47 slung in front across her shoulder, and handguns perched on her hips, she was ready for war.
Demanding that patrons stand at attention, she opened her 10-minute segment of the clash with Busy Signal's Jamaica Love. Tired Fi See Mi Face followed her vow to 'kill everybody, including the promoter".
"Everytime mi mek a duppy yuh know wah dem call mi?" Murderer was her shout, and the crowd's response was far louder.
Gangster's Anthem's "show mi unnu hands" requests had all hands in the air in approval.
Sanchez's Never Dis Di Man dub caused pandemonium in the Gee Wee venue as patrons thought it quite fitting.
"Mi nuh work wid Madden, a Madden work wid me!"signalled for Bushman to Call The Hearse for her badly wounded opponent.
"A dub do this!" she shouted. And so it seemed as though the dubs she had brought worked extremely well.
The judges all responded favourably to her segment. It wasn't clear, however, what made her "Usainable!" in the words of L.A. Lewis.
Ming Khaotik had her 10 minutes next.
Technical difficulties and a boring introduction were what began her set.
Her full black attire of 'ninja suit and police boot' (according to Miss Boss) and the sword she carried for the entire clash, were perhaps the most exciting parts of her showing.
A few Sizzla dubs caused sparks here and there.
Her shouts of "Juggle! Juggle!" to the selector would have probably been more effective in a game of football and a lone J. Wray & Nephew branded cup was seen making its way in the direction of the stage. It came from the hands of a dissatisfied patron, perhaps.
The judges comments on her showing didn't really matter.
In the tune-for-tune segment, Miss Boss again dominated.
She questioned Ming Khaotik's selections asking, "A dat mi really shine up mi gun dem fa? A dat mi get mi bullet dem fa?"
Her Dye Dye dub exploded like a bomb at the feet of her opponent.
By the first line, "Miss Boss, Ming should neva step inna da war yah" was done, the dub was no longer audible as the audience erupted in excitement.
Only when the chorus' "dye dye" came back could it be heard.
"Clash done!" a few patrons nearby shouted.
Ming later earned possibly her biggest forward of the night from Wasp's Hot Like Fire dub.
"Sword caan compare to bullet! Action!" said Miss Boss, before Mavado declared the same in Action Pack.
"Yuh haffi be a real killer fi use sword!" retaliated Ming.
Her retaliation was a suicide mission, however, as her own song followed. It wasn't quite clash-ready.
Making use of the opportunity, Miss Boss followed with a Cobra Press Trigger dub which "levelled di place".
Vybz Kartel's Real Badman followed for Ming, who maintained that she "cared zero for intimidation".
Miss Boss's last song and the last song of the tune-for-tune segment of the clash, was apparently also her victory song. With Jimmy Cliff's The Harder They Come, she lifted the coffin she had brought for her opponent to the air.
Flava Unit did a excellent job in getting patrons hyped for the clash that followed their performance. They stood out among a host of sounds with a thoroughly entertaining set to which patrons reacted positively.
The Container Female Promoters Selecting Competition started out with 16 female contestants from Portmore and Kingston vying for the grand prize of more than $100,000, as well as other prizes.
