Cultural singer I-Octane passed the acid test by totally winning over the Sting crowd at the Jamworld Entertainment Centre on Boxing Day.
This was definitely not his first Sting performance but it is the one that everyone is talking about. I-Octane faced the crowd at a time when they would have been hungry for the anticipated clash, yet he managed to make a good impression even having them at times engaged in a sing-a-long to some of his popular songs.
Among the songs he scored big with were Stab Vampire Poverty, Run Yet, None A Dem Nuh Frighten Wi and his big hit Different Page.
When I-Octane called on Spragga Benz on stage to their combination single Hurt Mi the whole place erupted as the two gave an highly charged performance.
With Sting now behind him the singer is now focused on the video for Hurt Mi which will take place at Arrows Studio on Wednesday (January 7) under the direction of Junior Arrows and Michael Cushnie.
