Squash and his management team are refuting claims that the recording artist has any connection with the “Mark of the Beast.”
Heavy D, manager for the Dancehall entertainer, recently told reporters that the “We Out Here” deejay is not related in any way to the “666” sign commonly associated with the “Mark of the Beast.”
This comes after the entertainment space between the artiste’s popular ‘Six’ slang and the religious sign were alleged connected.
Heavy D stated that Squash was aware that there is a misconception surrounding the meaning behind the artiste’s infamous ‘six slang’ and sought to assure the public that the saying is in no way associated with any dark, religious meaning.
“The six is not 666, is just six and it comes from six brothers, because is six brothers of them that grew up. People always a go try interpret things the wrong way but me can guarantee anuh dat (evil meaning),” he said.
Despite the artist’s hardcore Dancehall lyrics, Heavy D added that Squash is a God-fearing individual who occasionally goes to church.
He says neither the artiste nor his team has any cause to worry as the majority of people understand who he is and what he is about.
“Him is a cool yute, man. Certain things a just music hype and the language. We surely nah support dem thing deh, and I guess one day people will get the full understanding a weh him mean. Him nuh really concerned (about people’s interpretation of his slang) because him know wah him a say when him say ‘six’. Him did even talk about it already and say people must note carefully say him nah say 666, a just six,” he said.
Squash has been soaking up the attention he has been getting since his recent release from police custody.
The “Lavish” deejay has been shown a gread deal of support from the dancehall industry including Jamaican producer Skatta Burrell and Dancehall superstar Vybz Kartel.
The Montego Bay native, whose given name is Andre’ Whittaker, had been held under the Emergency Powers Act since August 8, when he was detained during the state of public emergency in St. James.
While the police listed the entertainer as a person of interest and kept him in custody for months, he always maintained his lack of involvement in any criminal activity.
Squash is known for songs such as “Allergy,” “Money Fever,” and “Trending.”
