The “Gyal Pro” deejay recently acquired over 500K subscribers on his official Youtube VEVO, which makes Alkaline the third Dancehall act to hit the prestigious half-million mark.
As of September 18, the “Fleek” deejay currently has 501,251 subscribers on VEVO, just behind Sean Paul and Shaggy, who are leading with 730,765 and 504,951, correspondingly. Dancehall diva Spice is in fourth place with 383,672 and Vybz Kartel in fifth with 365,519.
Alkaline’s constant body of work contributed to the online success, according to a Dancehall insider.
“Like it or not, this kid [Alkaline] is really doing the work and other artists in Jamaica need to take notes,” the source revealed.
“VEVO is cutting big cheques and Dancehallers need to get with the time and cash out.”
