Once a Kartel fan always a Kartel fan whether he is in prison or not. Singjay I-Octane is now finding out the hard way, that he should be careful regarding what he says as about the Portmore Empire and Gaza leader.
In an interview with on Anthony Miller’s Entertainment Report he made the following statement “If yu guh anywhere in the world yuh must hear Vybz Kartel, but him is not the dominant person. In Europe, he is not that, you hardly hear a Romain Virgo in Jamaica, but in Europe he is dominant, he is like the Vybz Kartel in Europe. You never go anywhere and don’t hear a Romain Virgo, it gives you a wider perspective of live and a wider perspective of the music.”
I-Octane was responding to Johnny Wonder’s previously made comments a few weeks before where he was quoted in a popular tabloid as saying Kartel was dancehall’s best seller, based on the volume of his hit records.
Among the comments flung I-Octane’s way were:
“I’m in England and I can say Vybz Kartel runs dancehall in England, it isn’t any different from being in Jamaica.”
“So this youth go Europe, and do some shows worth a few Euros and later convert them to Jamaica dollars and think he made all this money? … but let him not forget he is not the only one who has gained such money, ask Jah Cure. He (I-Octane) spent a whole month which Kartel will never spend because he can just do one show and triple the amount he got.”
