OCTANE CONFIRMED FOR REGGAE SUMFEST ...Nuh Ramp Wid We #1 on charts International recording star  I Octane continues to blaze a brilliant trail as the hottest artiste to emerge on the dancehall scene in the last 18 months.

He has now been confirmed to perform on Dancehall Night at this year's Reggae Sumfest concert. On Wednesday night, he delivered an incredible performance after the climax of the boxing match to decide the winner of the first J. Wray and Nephew-sponsored Contender reality TV series.

Last week, I Octane journeyed to Canada to perform at the Rozz Restaurant Complex in Brampton, Ontario. He did extensive radio and TV promotions for two days before the event and the promotion paid immediate dividends as the show was sold out. Long queues stretched from the venue and around the block as Canadians clamoured to see the Nuh Ramp Wid We singer.

I Octane hit the stage a few minutes after 2 a.m with Nuh Love Inna Dem , followed by My life. He got huge forwards for hits Puff It, and Lose a Friend, and his new songs, Mi Nuh Dream Bout Bwoy and Badmind Fi Di Year were well received by the jam-packed club.

He returned to Jamaica on Easter Sunday and headed straight to Montego Bay where he performed at the 'Live on the Water Front' concert at Pier one in Montego bay. The artiste entered the stage at about 3a.m. after the performances of Bounty Killer and Aidonia, and energised the venue with a marquis performance.

Backed by the Ruff Kutt band, Octane was in a fiery mood, spitting out a steady stream of hits to a delirious audience. On Easter Monday, he performed at Portmore Seafood Festival where he graced the stage at 11 p.m, closing the show with his many hits. Then he dashed off to perform at the Jamaica International Kite Festival where he performed after Kip Rich, rocking the audience with his hits, especially Nuh Love No Inna Dem.

Octane's 'Nuh Ramp Wid We' is now number 1 on the Captain Bakery Fi Wi Choice top 20 music chart, and it is roaring up the Hype Tv  Top 20 music chart, jumping to #12 this week . The video for the song is also on all the major music charts.
