Reggae artiste Teflon has denied allegations made by local websites that he and reggae icon Sizzla Kalonji blocked I-Octane from performing at the recent West Kingston Jamboree.
According teflon, who recently released a diss song aimed at I-Octane, Tommy Lee Sparta, Gage and Alkaline,
persons have been taking the incident out of context.
“We didn’t prevent anybody from performing. What took place is that when it was our time to work, I-Octane tried to go on stage at the same time, and that caused a little disruption. Sizzla gave I-Octane the option to perform, so I don’t know what caused him to do otherwise,” Teflon said.
The artiste explained that several artistes wanted to share in the Jamboree experience simultaneously, however, that proved to be impossible.
“I don’t know what happened. People a guh sey a bag of things because them see a likkle disruption with the entourage. But mi nuh want the people dem tek the thing wrong because it’s all about music and doing the right thing to please the fans,” he said.
As for his diss song called, Donkey Lense, Teflon said the effort is merely a correction for some of the incorrect things taking place in dancehall and reggae music.
“Big up the fans and big up Jamboree, more love. Any artiste that never perform obviously never came to perform,” Teflon told The Source.
Several attempts to speak with Sizzla proved futile.
When contacted, I-Octane said he did not want to comment. “A good music mi a duh, dem deh thing deh mi nah comment pan,” the singjay said.
I-Octane recently filmed the music video for Cya Do It, a collaboration with Vanessa Bling, formerly called Gaza Slim.
