The promoters of Reggae Sumfest were so impressed with I-Octane’s closing performance last year that they asked the singjay to close dancehall night this year again.
Octane initially rejected the offer due to a conflict from last year with fellow dancehall deejay Mr. Vegas.

Reps for the “Hot Spot” singjay told Dancehall HipHop that he is channeling his energy on pleasing the fans and not on negativity.
“I-Octane is doing this for the fans because they are the only true judge of any artist performance,” the rep told us.
“We choose to close Reggae Sumfest because Johnny Gourzong believe in I-Octane as a force in the genre,” the source added. “Fans can expect a high energy performance Thursday night.”
Other artists on the lineup for this year’s Dancehall Night includes Mr. Vegas, Bounty Killer, Alkaline, Popcaan, Aidonia, Busy Signal, Assassin, Spice, Bugle, and more.
