For I-Octane, this will be a mystic journey which will help him reach back and touch the past in a meaningful way and pay homage to the African ancestors, even as he fully embraces the present and the future, the Jamaican media reported.
Hear the ‘Love You’ singer: “Performing in Africa has been on my bucket list for quite a while. But, as they say, nothing happens before the right time. Team I-Octane is ready and we will be giving a one-of-a-kind performance in The Gambia. They celebrated 50 years of independence last week – their Golden Jubilee – so you know the ting turn all the way up Jamaican and Gambian style.”
Prior to his visit, the singjay had been busy in the studio working on a major collaboration with two of dancehall’s biggest and most current stars – Mavado and Alkaline. Produced by Andre “DJ Frass” Gordon, the explosive single, ‘Above Dem’, is expected to set the dancehall in a musical spin.
Meanwhile, singer T Smallz while welcoming the Jamaican to the country commented in a previous interview: “Yes, the deal is finalised, I-Octane is coming. He is the guest artiste at my double EP launching on the 6th March.”]]>
