Rastafarian artiste I-Octane says that a recent report that a popular female radio disc jock is pregnant for him is an attempt to tarnish his image.
An online publication yesterday claimed that DJ Amber is four-months pregnant with I-Octane’s child. The revelation stirred quite some debate in entertainment circles.
However, the deejay last night said: “She has a motive. She out fi get rid of the brand Octane so people can seh rae rae ’cause readers have different perspectives.”
“Mi and har neva have a relationship, so what is har motive?” I-Octane said.
DJ Amber, when contacted by THE WEEKEND STAR earlier, had said: “I’m pregnant for the artiste and we are no longer in a relationship.”
She said she only came public with her story because she wanted to avoid rumours.
“I was contacted with a false story that I was pregnant for I-Octane and he asked me to get an abortion. He never asked me for an abortion. I gave my version of the story because I didn’t want any rumours to start going around,” she told THE WEEKEND STAR, noting that their relationship ended in March.
Amber said that she had been friends with I-Octane for years but only became intimate late last year. However, she said she had suspicions that he was involved with other women. She said she suspected that he was still involved with the mother of his child, and another female who also works in the media but he denied relationships with both.
“Not that I didn’t have a clue, I had my suspicions. When I cornered him with the truth, he could not deny it so that was the end of the relationship right there,” she said.
While he agrees that they were friends, I-Octane refuted some of her claims.
“Mi and her were good friends and do business together but apparently we go pon different page. Her approach is different from mine,” he said.
After he decided that certain things would not continue, that is when he said things started getting bad.
“She seh she invest in the brand so she entitled to whatever come from it. When mi tell har seh it nah go continue, a deh so all di bad things start. She seh she a go mek the brand demolish but I never really pay it no mind ’cause mi have other things fi deal wid,” he said. “All of a sudden she come drop een pregnancy.”
In the meantime, Amber says that she does not believe that the news of her pregnancy and the circumstances surrounding it will have any negative implications for her.
“I don’t see this affecting me negatively in any way or form. I am an independent female. I can manage on my own. I also have support from family, friends and members of the entertainment fraternity,” Amber said.
For I-Octane, he claims that these are some of the challenges that come with being in the public eye.
“Remember Buju say it’s not an easy road and all dem things ya come wid di territory. These are the challenges you have to face when you rise in life. Every important individual go through it with people trying to tarnish their names,” he said.
Nonetheless, “Mi still love har and rate har fi weh she do fi mi,” I-Octane added.
