Byron Messia says people are misconstruing his post, in which he posted an article predicting his song Talibans can be the biggest song in dancehall since 2005. When he was directly asked via an interview if he said he had the biggest dancehall song since 2005, the entertainer unequivocally said “naw.”
Byron Messia explained the reason behind the controversial post by stating, “You had to understand, like from the first post I made why I said that, I posted something of the UK. Talibans is at number 12 right now; if Talibans sits at number ten, yeah, the article said it can be one of the biggest songs since 2005.”
The artiste also made it clear that he was not trying to take away from other dancehall artistes that have been representing the culture on the international scene over the years. However, the artiste also asked, why a musician can’t congratulate themself for great work that they have done, even though he knows self-praise was no praise.
Going forward, the entertainer said he would keep quiet and keep working on his musical projects because of the way his post was misinterpreted and pieced together. Byron went on to ask why people never connected the multiple slides he posted online instead of just reading one of the slides out of context.
“When I started off with the post, I said thank god for everything I did so much in the space of six months that was the first slide they ain’t use that slide with the rest,” Byron explained.
