Lila Iké Talks Working With H.E.R. On Reggae Album – DancehallMag“I am Lila Ike I am into women and I’ve been making reggae music,” the Solitude singer wrote in a series of cryptic tweets yesterday, to preempt what she suggested was a threat to “expose” her sexuality.

“So what if I am into women? My music isn’t real?” Lila Iké wrote. “Expose all you want.”

“If pictures are released I said it first,” the 27-year-old declared.

Iké also revealed that she’s been molested and raped.  “Men have done nothing but break me. And my mom and my grandmother,” she wrote in another tweet.

The cryptic tweets and an Instagram Live that followed have raised concerns among fans about the artist’s safety.  “They have been trying to kill me day 1. Reggae music will never die even if a girl who loves a woman is singing it,” she wrote on Instagram.

“You not listening to the music; Unuh gone inna the bed,” she added.

So far, there’s been no official statement from Iké’s management, but many fans and some of her fellow entertainers have offered their support including producer ZJ Sparks, who confirmed that the singer was safe.

“U Covered Inna Real Life…Love U Sis @LilaIkeJa,” tweeted fellow artist Jesse Royal.
