Life has a way of bringing out the best in people, and Afro Dancehall musician, Fantana, who is also an actress has experienced her fair share of this.


She opened up about her teenage years on 3Music TV's Culture Daily, describing herself as a truant in school. Fantana claims that her wild lifestyle put her in jail in the United States when she got into a brawl.


“I would never go to class and sometimes they would have to come and check on me if I was alive in my dorm. I just didn’t like school. When I was in school I used to be fighting and one of the fights got real and really bad and the police got involved. That whole day everybody was looking for me because I’m always on my phone. So no one could find me and no one heard from me because I was obviously in jail.”


After being detained and waiting to be bailed by a family member, Fantana tells how she started reflecting on her life prior to interactions with her cell companions, which caused her to have a new outlook about life.


“The jail people really liked me. They were so nice. I was there like 8 hours. It was really long and really sad because other people were in there for actual stuff and hearing their stories, I was asking everybody why you are here. They were telling me and also spoke to me about anger, my anger management and also just to change. There were a lot of older women there and they were talking to me too. So after I got arrested that was when I changed completely. That 8 hours changed me.”


Fantana believes that what happened was valuable to her life and allowed her to become a better person, and that she is not embarrassed to talk about it.
