Ishawna has broken her silence on the recent reports that she abruptly departed Downsound Records.

The dancehall diva was also a no show at Reggae Sumfest despite being billed as an headlining act on Dancehall Night. Speaking to Anthony Miller on ER, Ishawna says that Joe worked for her and he did a poor job so she fired him.

Ishawna has stepped forward to deny having an intimate relationship with her former Downsound boss Joe Bogdanovich.Since news of her split with the record label became public last month, there have been rumors that the fallout was a result of her rumored relationship with Bogdanovich going south.

“I am Ishawna and Joe Bogdanovich work for me you understand,” she said. “He was hired to work for me and certain things weren’t running how I want them to run.”

But speaking with Entertainment Report last weekend, the dancehall diva says that their relationship was strictly business.

“Strictly business, it was always just a business relationship,” Ishawna said. “I am an asset to Downsound not a liability so you’re not going to see no fight, there is going to be a fight. But at the end of the day I have to do me and take my career into my own hands.”

Ishawna also said that she was not given a contract to perform at Reggae Sumfest so she opted not to perform on the event. The “Oolala” deejay also touched on the topic of the Mercedes Benz that Bogdanovich gave to her as a gift and she dared him to take it back.
