I Octane says Mr Vegas should close Sumfest and prove his worth

"Honour to Bounty Killer and Beenie Man who have closed Sumfest for many years. Last year, many people were sceptical and thought it was a risky move to make me as a young artiste close the show. The outcome was good and the reviews were good, and despite that, Mr Vegas still had nothing positive to say, and I think he should have been happy that a young youth was stepping out and prospering," I-Octane said.

The singjay says this year, he was thinking of performing on International Night in order to promote his reggae songs featured on his new My Journey album. However, he was recently asked by Sumfest's Johnny Gourzong to close the show's Dancehall Night once again, an invitation which he accepted, until he realised that Mr Vegas was also on the line-up.

"When I saw that Mr Vegas will be on the show this year, I decided that he should be the one to close it. Since he was full of big talk last year and ridiculing the festival and the line-up, I want to give him the honour of closing Sumfest and I will stand up and watch his performance, and if he does well, I will walk over and shake his hand," Octane said.

"If Mr Vegas is performing, I am not closing, I want to perform before him. I am not trying to stop any artiste from performing at the show. But because of what Vegas said last year, I want him to close the show," I-Octane said.
