Lisa Hyper takes plunge
Screen grab showing Lisa Hyper moments before her baptism on the weekend.

DANCEHALL deejay Lisa Hyper has gotten baptised. A video with the deejay taking the plunge on the weekend is making the rounds on social media.

It is unclear the date or location of the baptism, as the deejay said she is not doing any interviews. However, in the video, she was baptised by a female pastor who requested that she raised her right hand and make the following declaration: "Thy vows, oh Lord, are upon me until death in the name of Jesus."

This came just a few days after the Jamaica Observer reported that the artiste was gearing up for a three-week trek in England, for the first time since 2010.

"I will be going to England in November for a three-week tour. I haven't been there in over 12 years, so my fans are eager to see me. The first time I went to England, it was awesome, and I felt the love from the fans," Lisa Hyper disclosed in an interview with the Observer.

"God has gifted me with a lot of strength, and I am extremely passionate and tenacious about the things I love. I love music very deeply. I have been singing since I was five years old and by the time I was in high school I met Vybz Kartel. He did a lot to prepare me for my entry into the music business, he groomed me to be a strong and successful artiste," she continued.

Lisa Hyper is known for hit songs including Sculpture, Body Fit, Pretty Butterfly, Wine for Me, Champion Bubbler, and Bills featuring Gaza Kim.

Her latest single Nuh Like People was released on Friday.
