An upcoming dancehall artist name Dazzla is accusing I-Octane of stealing his song.
The accusations came just days after I-Octane drop his latest single “Wuk Up Yuh Body,” produced by Markus Records.
According to Dazzla, I-Octane first heard the song during a recent taping of Magnum Kings & Queens of dancehall.
This is what Dazzla told the Star:
“The first week mi play the song at Magnum and I-Octane came to the show as a guest judge and he heard the song, a lot of people heard the song at the venue. So the next week when I-Octane’s song was released people start calling me to say how come I and I-Octane released the same song.”
“At first I was surprised and I went home to listen the song released by I-Octane and it was very similar to mine. If you listen to the songs yu will hear the similarities.”
“People from foreign which is my fanbase is saying that how mi and I-Octane fi have the same song like wi a whol the same meds. If you go on YouTube and listen for yourselves you can hear them.”
“This is just what people are saying. I personally believe I-Octane is too big for that, but people just listen both songs and you decide. I am not trying to look a hype from the artiste, because I am not that type of person, but I would just like people to listen for themselves and be the judge.”
“I know that artistes tend to get desperate sometimes to keep the hits coming. But I don’t believe I-Octane is that type of person so I am just puzzled right now. Dem sey great minds think alike so anything possible, the last thing I want people to assume is that it’s a young artiste looking a hype. But the similarities of the song does raise some eyebrows. I am just going to continue to push my song and I have a video on the way.”
I-Octane publicist Sasha Bling said the “My Life” deejay recorded the song in question long before Magnum Kings & Queens.
