Spice sheds emotional light on issue with VP Records at ‘Captured’ launch


It was an evening of mixed emotions at the launch party of Spice’s Captured Mixtape.

The dancehall artiste held an event in support of her 19-track project which took top spot on the iTunes reggae albums charts upon release.

Spice performed a number of songs from the mixtape, to include the attention-grabbing ‘Black Hypocrisy’ single. However, it was the title track “Captured”, that brought her to tears on stage.
