Shaneil Muir is confirming that she's stepping away from the dancehall spotlight to walk the straight and narrow. The entertainer made the declaration via Instagram on Wednesday, but noted she would honour the gigs which she had been previously booked for.

"I'm not leaving dancehall for Christianity because I have always been a Christian. A sinner yes, but aren't we all? I'm leaving to do God's work, to find peace, happiness, salvation, this world cannot offer me that. My reward is not in the hands of men and (Ephesians 6:12) wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers…" she posted.

Her announcement came four days after she collapsed due to exhaustion in her hometown of Montego Bay. She had also gone live on Instagram on Sunday night to allude to her conversion.

"Because of my secular choices, I have obligations to conclude this chapter of my life. I do not know what tomorrow brings but by God's grace and mercy I will baptize and rededicate my life to God and no matter how this ship may rock Jesus Christ is the anchor," Muir said.

She will be performing in Belize, St Croix, New York, St Thomas, New Jersey, St Lucia, St Marteen, Atlanta and Jamaica in the coming weeks.

"Thank you to everyone who has reached out. Thank you for your encouragements, know that I am grateful. I am in great spirits! I will be a new! JEHOVAH IS IN CONTROL! HE WINS!" she concluded.

Hailing from Flanker in St James, Muir recorded her first single, Proud Side Chick, for Good Good Productions shortly after making the top five in the Magnum Queen of The Dancehall in 2016.

She has since collaborated with Vybz Kartel on Ride It and Loyal. Other releases include Naturally, Exclusive and Justice.
