The Dutch Accepts I-Octane
Conscious singer I-Octane returned home on a high after making good on his first ever European performance at the Sundance Festival in Holland on August 10. The singer was surprised at the response he received from the estimated 30-35,000 patrons as he belted out his popular singles such as Stab Vampire, Poverty and Different Page.
He was surprised by how much they knew his songs. He felt that it was one of his best performances yet and was grateful to performed in front of a huge white crowd and hearing them singing his songs word for word.
The songs went over so well, that I-Octane found himself performing each track more than once. When he touched Different Page well in the singers own words, It was a different page all together. He had to do that song three times, before he could eventually satisfy their insatiable appetite for the single.
The singer had every reason to enjoy his first stint in Europe as he was a hot commodity there doing one interview after another for magazines, radio and television stations. That was not the only thing occupying his time as he was also in demand to do dub plates and specials for various sounds in that part of the world.
I-Octane also did a superb performance in Canada on the Toronto International Music Festival which took place last weekend at Oakville Italian Garden, Toronto.
The singer is expected to return to the island on Tuesday to shoot the video for his number one single Different Page.
According to the singer's management company Arrows Recording, relayed that they should have shot the video already, but the rain put paid to those plans.
