Vybz Kartel Fans Goes HAM On I-Octane “He Is Not On World Boss Level”

Vybz Kartel has one of the biggest and most ruthless fan base in dancehall even from behind bars.

The incarcerated dancehall star fans are not afraid to attack any other deejay who dare to say anything about their idol that they don’t like. I-Octane learned the hard way.

During a recent interview with ER, I-Octane says that Vybz Kartel is only popular in Jamaica, but not overseas.

“If you go anywhere in the world you must hear Vybz Kartel, but he is not the dominant person,” the singjay said. “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.”

A rep for the “My Life” singer told Urban Islandz that he was never speaking ill of the self-proclaimed World Boss but merely making a point about the state of dancehall music.

Nevertheless, Vybz Kartel legion of fans took to social media to blast I-Octane with some calling him a waste man.

“Octane you is a waste man,” one angry fan wrote, while another added “You or any other artist will never be on Vybz Kartel level.”

  3. Opinions and facts means nothing to Kartel’s legion of fans. The truth is an option that is rarely exercised. If a person does not go gaga over Kartel, these fans go crazy.

  6. lyrically his more potent then any artist in any genre at the moment he is the present day Fela Kuti… btw i am from South Africa and trust me Vybz Kartel is massive

    • How could you truly compare Kartel to the great Fela Kuti? Fela and Bob Marley are on their own level and Kartel is nowhere in their league…

      • Bob Marley wasn’t even recognized till after his death. People in Jamaica wasn’t listening to Bob while he was alive

      • …and you mentioned that to say what? How does that relate to that which I wrote? I don’t have time for non sequiturs–let’s not digress…

      • Just throwing a fact out there that makes your statement look weak

      • I mentioned it to say gyal si down pon it. Si down on all your comments. You take your time out to comment on every kartel article. You have kids that are more important than these bs urban island articles anyway.

      • You are so naive, Bob Marley was more than recognized in Jamaica before he died. Are you not aware of the peace concerts and the influence he swayed in the 1972 and 1976 elections, et al?

        Even if you were correct, it still does not take away from the fact that Vybz Kartel is not on the level of Bob Marley and Fela Kuti.

        Neophyte, I am not a woman. Is it not my right to comment on that which I see? You are really showing the world that you are a myopic super dunce…

      • You use these big words to make it seem as if you are intelligent. You read urban island, and comment on every article concerning kartel. Who is the dunce? 3 paragraphs and you still didn’t say anything with sence

      • So because you can’t comprehend what I am saying, you’ve concluded that I am not making any sense? I don’t reconcile with the notion of big words and it seems as if you are struggling with such words. I am not going to get into a diatribe with you–especially given the fact that you don’t know how to participate in a debate/conversation.

        I made a statement, you responded in a capacity that had nothing to do with my statement–non sequitur. I again asked you again to validate your statement–as it relates to my initial statement and you are yet to.

        This idea of castigating someone for being intelligent is very unfortunate; which rule is that–which rule book are you using? In lieu of attacking me for using so-called big words, why don’t you attempt to convey your statements in a more cogent regard?

      • You have not one thing else better to do. Give me three paragraphs on how it felt growing up with that name

      • Sense and not sence young lad–take pride in that which you utter as they are a representative of self…

      • I’m not here to debate or conversate with you. This is urban island. If you are reading these articles then you aren’t intellectual at all. Or since they cover most kartel news is that why you are here?

      • Thank You

  14. “I-Octane says that Vybz Kartel is only popular in Jamaica, but not overseas”

    That’s a fact. Unless they get off that island, see the world and tour… their fan base will forever be local, and they will never have the remotest chance at making this list.

      • What happened to your mind, fool? Did you not attend school? Can you not differentiate between an opinion and a statement?? Is your head so far up Kartel’s rear that you can’t see my obvious troll?
        You’re a clown. UI is the circus. I just bought a fresh bag of popcorn. Entertain me.
