As tension escalates between several trending talents within the dancehall space, namely Masicka and Skeng, Silk Boss and Jahshii, Strike force deejay Govana had some advice for his compatriots.
At the 2022 staging of Fisherman’s Regatta held at Paggee Beach in St. Mary on Wednesday, Govana, during his performance, implored fellow entertainers not to allow social media and the fans to cajole them into any physical or lyrical confrontations.
Addressing the growing friction between Jahshii and Silk Boss, Govana stated,
“Mi see a bagga a ting a gwaan inna the media from wah day.. Silk Boss mi neva exchange a word wid yuh yet yute, but yuh is a powerful artiste ah me Govi Govi acknowledge dat… LISTEN! Bredda, stay pon yuh path weh yuh a sing righteous.. duh mek nuh man come wild yuh out and bring yuh inna nuh clash and dem wildness and dem joke style deh. Keep yuh focus going, badman, be a big artiste and not a hot artiste.”
In the same vein, the Spanish Town hitmaker also lauded Jahshii and Skeng while scolding some of the more established entertainers for their condescension towards the youths,
“big up Jahshii, big up Skeng zeen.. and one ting wid me, di whole a di youths dem haffi respect Govi Govi cause a show mi show yutes love, I don’t disrespect yutes because some bwoy before we, dem like disrespect and talk down pon people we try fi encourage every ghetto yute fi get rich and wealthy and help dem family, that is right! Right?” To which the large gathering agreed.
In continuing to build his brand, Govana is currently en route to Canada for an assignment this Sunday, August 14, before jetting off to South America for a gig in French Guiana on August 19.
Despite a hectic roster, the deejay continues work on his still-untitled upcoming EP, slated for release later this year.
