Portmore Empire deejay Popcaan has stepped forward to address recent rumors of him leaving the group.
During an interview with the Star, Popcaan denied the allegations, but said he is working with Young Vibes Records, an affiliate of Shocking Vibes.
“I work with Young Vibes Records’ Jamie Roberts, that is Patrick Robert’s son, but my management remains the same with Portmore Empire,” he said. “Patrick Roberts naah manage mi, a mi fren dem but a nuh no management ting, a Gaza mi sey.”
Popcaan said Vybz Kartel being behind bars slows down business, and as such he had to seek the services of other industry professionals for bookings. He said, although he is not officially being managed by Roberts, the dancehall veteran is authorized to take bookings requests on his behalf.
“I want the people to know this, don’t get it twisted, I am not managed by Shocking Vibes, yu know seh Teacha nuh deh a road, and business still haffi gwaan but mi nuh lef Gaza, those are just silly rumours,” he said.
“Memba a me sey Gaza forever and mi nuh have nuh further comment,” he concluded.
Last week Dancehall HipHop sources inside the Gaza confirmed that Popcaan is still a member of the Gaza, and would faced with a dilemma if he decides to leave.
Do you think Popcaan should leave the Gaza?
