Dancehall star Mavado has declared victory in the lyrical feud against fellow entertainer Popcaan.
A source close to the “Big League” deejay told Hype Life Magazine that Mavado’s camp is contented with the end result of the Jamaican Dancehall artists’ brief clash.
“The war is not even a close call because Mavado is by far the winner and the deejay barely break a sweat,” the source revealed.
“Poppy isn’t ready for this level of war; it would be better if he had left it alone from the start.”
Some dancehall fans on social media share the same sentiments coming from Mavado’s party.
“Gully Gad destroyed Poppy!” one user wrote on Instagram.
“I am a Gaza fan, Poppy you let down the Gaza boss,” another user wrote.
Over the past months, Popcaan and arch rival Mavado have been at each other neck sending lyrical threats and dissing each other in a series of songs.
In July, Alkaline and Mavado released a collaborative single “Farewell” where the “So Special” singjay took a few jabs at the “Killy Killy” deejay.
Popcaan then released a single “We Still A Win (World Cup)” which is a direct response to Mavado’s smash hit single “Big League.”
Both artists engaged in a social media spat before releasing a handful of diss tracks.
Popcaan responded by calling Mavado an “Instagram Gangsta.” Perhaps that infuriated the Gully Gad, who released a gritty diss track “Dem Run Een.”
Popcaan then released “Dutty Dread,” “RGP” and “Born Read,” while Mavado dropped “Funeral,” “Dem Dead A Ready,” correspondingly.
On September 10, Popcaan issued a public apology to his social media fans and stated that he and Mavado “have no violence whatsoever towards each other.”
“To My Younger And My Older Fans I would like to Apologize For All The Language That I Been Using In Me And Mavado lyrical #battle We have no violence whatsoever towards each other,” he said. “Bless up all real dancehall music fans wey been a follow the culture and bless up Mavado #Wayup.”
Mavado, in his response, unleashed another diss track “Dem Fraid.”
