Women’s History Month is being recognized on the Blog this month. How can we not highlight a Woman who is one of the Jamaica’s greatest Artists? In some circles she is hailed as one of Jamaica’s greatest Lyricists, and in other circles she is considered a criminally underrated Artist. For Oldies Sunday, we feature Tanya Stephens and her single, “Yuh Nuh Ready Fi Dis Yet“.
Produced by Dave Kelly on the “Joy Ride Riddim“, and released through the Mad House Label in 1996, Tanya Stephens takes the mic to call out all the Men who have been selfish towards their Women, who have not been treating them right, and who been pushing a claim that they are the ideal Men. Tanya steps out with a few lines to let them know that their egos can be deflated instantly when the Woman gives him a dose of his own Medicine. If you’re not mature enough to take care of a Woman, leave her alone is Tanya’s message here. “Yuh Nuh Ready Fi Dis Yet” was the breakout single for Tanya Stephens, as it became prominent on music charts, and had every Woman from young to old singing her song line for line. The single was also featured on Tanya’s sophomore album, “Too Hype“
Since the release of “Yuh Nuh Ready Fi Dis Yet”, Tanya Stephens became a dominant force, and was highly respected as a Lyricist for a number of years. She went on to release more blazing singles and solid bodies of work, and has extended her pen game to other Artists, giving them hits as well. She deserves her Flowers and accolades, and she has inspired many Women around the world.
