Many people will recall that I-Octane headlined ‘Reggae Sumfest’ last year, closing the show to widespread critical acclaim. However Mr. Vegas openly voiced his disapproval of the ‘Gyal A Gimme Bun’ artist’s integral role in the “the greatest reggae show on earth”. This year, I-Octane was asked to headline once more and initially agreed…before finding out that Mr. Vegas was billed to perform. Octane subsequently withdrew from this offer, calling for Vegas to headline instead: ” If Mr. Vegas is performing, I am not closing…because of what Vegas said last year, I want him to close the show.”

Mr. Vegas responded, albeit somewhat sarcastically: “I think ‘The King’ of last year’s Dancehall Night should close this year again…you put a lot of promotion and hard work into it last year, to show that a you a run the place.” He also imparted some advice for his musical colleague: “Spend more time focusing on building a legacy, instead of trying to run the place and claim ‘bigmanship’…artistes need to realize that if you do good music, yuh nuh haffi set torch inna venue,” adding “Any fire that blaze up too fast, out quick.”

Since then, it has been revealed that I-Octane will close the show afterall. But he is yet to answer the diss track which Mr.Vegas has fired at him, entitled ‘Ready Long Time’!
