Artistes have often spoken out about the hostility in dancehall. While some choose not to name which entertainers are to blame, Mr. Vegas had no problem naming I-Octane a “demon” in the dancehall fraternity.
In a recent live stream, Mr. Vegas shared with his viewers the extent of the contention and resentment between artistes in dancehall. To exemplify just how unscrupulous the members of the local entertainment fraternity are, the Heads High deejay shared instances when his life was placed at risk due to the actions of other artistes.
In March, a lyrical war erupted between I-Octane and Khago, who had been at odds for several years, and the artistes exchanged multiple diss tracks. Mr. Vegas shared that he and Khago were close at the time, and he viewed the potential clash between him and I-Octane as a positive for the artiste who could gain from it financially.
However, according to Mr. Vegas, during the height of the feud, both men were going to collaborate on a single, which was viewed as ridiculous by fans and himself. Mr. Vegas said he confronted Khago and told him he would not gain anything from working with I-Octane amid the ongoing feud.
Upon learning what Mr. Vegas said, I-Octane allegedly told the men who were behind the creation of the track that the Hot Wuk deejay stated that “dem fi dead.” Mr. Vegas expressed that at the time, he was completely unaware of the men who were behind the production of the song and only found out that they were “rude” boys after the fact.
According to Mr. Vegas, this was only a small insight into what was happening in dancehall, and he could deliver a complete breakdown of I-Octane’s career, but he was not ready. Mr. Vegas said I-Octane almost managed to fool fans into thinking he was genuine, but they can now see him for who he is.
Styling his fellow entertainer as a “demon” and the “devil,” Mr. Vegas classified I-Octane as one of the wickedest men in dancehall.
