I-Octane decides to be a progressive element in Noisey Jamaica Image

by Biko Kennedy

With a stage presence reminiscent of a young Sizzla Kolongi diversified with elements of Jah Cure and a vocal style emitting nothing less than every inch of his emotional being, I-Octane aims to be more than just another artiste doing music.

Meeting up with the 'conscious' artiste days prior to his performance at Reggae Sumfest 2012, narrator Codine Williams with Octane on his early beginnings and to his humbling persona.

"I started music from a tender age…from school days," explains the entertainer before noting why his characteristics are more subtle than braggadocio.

"I think my brand and my assets and whatever the Almighty blessed me with is supposed to be louder than me. Cause the bible says a loud man is weak. It's not like I can't buy platinum chains…anything I want I can get for myself. More time you see artistes come with this and that and when you go watch their stage show, their image is louder than their performance; their image is more out there it's like the image is good and the performance is whack," intimated the singjay.

Currently basking in the success of his singles 'Pretty Little Flower' and 'Gyal a Gimmi Bun', I-Octane plans to pick up where his mentors left off; from Bob Marley in the '70s to Dennis Brown in the '80s to Garnett Silk and Buju Banton in the '90s to Sizzla in more recent times, Octane yearns to propel the voice of Jamaica all once again.
