With sold out shows on his United States tour, I-Octane told the Jamaica-Star he is happy to be representing reggae music abroad. Since starting the tour earlier this year, I-Octane says he has done more than 30 shows and they have all surpassed his expectations.
“So far, it has been tremendous, very good. Great turnout, full venue, Miami ram, Jersey ram, tickets sold out,” he told THE STAR, while in Connecticut.
“It wicked, and mi just feel good fi know seh mi can represent reggae music to the fullest with positive music. All of the people weh come are Octane fans. Everybody sing the songs, line for line. The response has been great. Nuff people weh love Octane proud, and people weh just a know Octane seh mi a dem new favourite artiste.”
Although he is popular in Jamaica, I-Octane said the reception he has been receiving is certainly more than he was expecting for what is his first major United States tour.
