I-Octane, whose given name is Byiome Muir, drops the new single “Eye Red,” as a New Year’s gift to his fans as he burns out envious and corrupted people.
Dancehall singjay I-Octane’s performance was icing on the cake at the New Year’s Eve party, French Connection ‘Sparkle’, which washeld at the Caymanas Polo Club in St Catherine.
In other news, I-Octane calling for Jamaicans to come together to stamp out the scourge of crime and violence after brutal killing of a mother and her two sons in Bucknor district of Clarendon in Jamaica.
“Me see Jamaicans from uptown and downtown block road and protest ’bout gas prices until we get change. We need to take that same mentality to the crime. We can’t wait until it reach our door,” said I-Octane.
“Once everybody come together to fight this thing, we have to provide gainful employment for people who are involved in crime. Too many educated youths sitting idle and have no opportunity. We must get them something to do or show them ways in which they can create employment opportunities for themselves,” he added.
For I-Octane, for too long persons have chosen to highlight the problem without providing solutions.
He, therefore, notes that efforts have to be made to create employment opportunities to prevent those at risk from venturing into a life of crime.
