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.”
