Tanya Stephens continues to stand her ground with her views regarding one of Jamaica’s most endeared cultural icons – Louise Bennett-Coverley, commonly referred to as Miss Lou.

Stephens recently shared her thoughts on a highly controversial comment made by the dancehall artiste Ishawna.

Last week, Ishawna triggered public backlash for a social media post which had the caption – “Mi nuh dress inna tablecloth like Miss Lou.”

The post, which was shared on the popular photo-sharing platform Instagram also included the hashtag “#RipMissLou”.

Stephens responded in a social media post seemingly directed at Ishawna’s critics, saying “Jamaicans really need to stop mandating their self-imposed limitations.”

In the post, Stephens also asked persons condemning Ishawna to share an image of themselves dressing like ‘Miss Lou’ and a video of themselves reciting one of the icon’s poems.

She has since expounded on her views regarding Miss Lou in a social media video.
