Following recent remarks by militant entertainer Aidonia that he is on the same level as Vybz Kartel during a television interview, several fans of the incarcerated deejay have taken to social media to voice their opinion.
Aidonia said that Vybz Kartel and Mavado only soared to the top of the dancehall pyramid because of their highly publicised 'Gaza vs Gully' feud, highlighting that dancehall thrives on negativity. He also said he had hits on the same rhythms Vybz Kartel and Mavado were feuding on, however, those hits were overshadowed by the 'Gaza' and 'Gully' conflict.
"For years dem sey the two baddest lyricists is Aidiona and Kartel, so if yuh call him name yuh haffi call my name. Every year Aidonia always inna dancehall music, a people a try mek it look different ... a just the clash mek the whole thing different. If it wasn't for the clash, things would have been different, people love negative and dancehall build pon da thing deh. They shun Aidonia glory and push up some other thing," Aidonia said in the interview.
After the interview aired many supporters of Vybz Kartel took to various social media outlet to share their own views on Aidonia's comments.
One user posted, "You need fi calm yuh self Aidonia ... yuh bad, yes...but straight up, yuh thing nuh up there like Kartel."
Speaking with 876ENT, an unwavering Aidonia says despite the criticism he is not changing his stance and will not be swayed by the opinions of others.
