Popcaan 'Patrick Roberts naah manage mi'
KINGSTON, Jamaica(Star): A week after the arrest of Gaza strong man Adidja 'Vybz Kartel' Palmer, rumours have already begun to surface in the music fraternity that the Gaza prefect 'Popcaan', has signed to Shocking Vibes. However, the dancehall artiste denies such allegations. "I work with Young Vibes Records' Jamie Roberts, that is Patrick Robert's son, but my management remains the same with Portmore Empire," he said. According to Popcaan, since the arrest of Vybz Kartel he has been conducting business through Patrick Roberts of Shocking Vibes, but it's not a contract agreement. "Patrick Roberts naah manage mi, a mi fren dem but a nuh no management ting, a Gaza mi sey," he said. The artiste says that Patrick Roberts will and can take phone calls on his behalf for bookings, but Gaza fans must not be quick to be judgmental. "I want the people to know this, don't get it twisted, I am not managed by Shocking Vibes, yu know seh Teacha nuh deh a road, and business still haffi gwaan but mi nuh lef Gaza, those are just silly rumours," he said. According to Popcaan, his management and label remain the same despite the absence of Vybz Kartel. "Memba a me sey Gaza forever and mi nuh have nuh further comment," he concluded. THE STAR tried to contact Patrick Roberts for comment but both of his cellphones rang without answer
