He Says/She Says is all about placing celebrities in hypothetical scenarios where various comments or questions are posed to them, either from fans or the opposite sex, and to which we asked them to give their honest responses.

Today, media personality Dr Kingsley 'Ragashanti' Stewart, host of the popular morning radio show 'Ragashanti Live', engages in real talk with a potential mate and a fan.

She says: "Babes, I just feel like we have known each other for so long, even though we have just been dating for two weeks. Can I move in with you?"

Ragashanti: "No, man, it woulda neva happen. Mi cyaah mek any woman move in after two weeks! 'Cause mi wouldn't have enough time fi know if she is a ex-murder, or if she woulda pull a Lorena Bobbitt an' cut off mi instrument, or if she a go throw hot water pon mi when mi a sleep a night-time. 'Cause you have some madwoman out deh!"

She says: (Not married) "Babes, we have been together for a while now and I was doing some thinking and I really want you to put my name in your bankbook."

Ragashanti: "Yeah, mi woulda put her name inna mi bankbook ... but if we have been dating for a long time. At the same time, I might put in some serious consideration of opening a different one with my name alone inna it, 'cause you done know how it go more time (laughs)."

She Says: "Will you marry me?"

Ragashanti: "I actually see nothing wrong with a woman proposing to a man. If I love her and di thing set dah way deh weh a she me a look forward to spend di rest of my life with, then I wouldn't have a problem with she proposing. It wouldn't mek mi feel less of a man.

Fan says: "What's the weirdest thing you have ever done for love?"

Ragashanti: "I was 18 at the time and my girl was going to leave me an mi bawl like a baby (laughs). Mi think mi did a go lose dah love deh. But mi did young, 'cause right yah now, mi nah bawl fi dem thing deh!"

Fan: What's the weirdest encounter you've had with a fan?

Ragashanti: "Mi did deh a Backyaad at one a mi mix-up-and-blenda show and I was wearing a linen pants. And a woman succeeded in pushing a piece o' paper wid har name an' number in (mi pants front). She could have just given me, but perhaps she was sending a particular message (laughs)."
