There was massive support for reggae/dancehall star I-Octane, when he recently launched his new album 'My Journey' at the Triple Century Sports Bar in New Kingston.

The launch party was well attended, and saw a sea of supporters, artistes and corporate associates from Digicel, Busta and Guinness.

Representatives from each company spoke highly of the entertainer, citing him as a positive role model and a trendsetter.

"I-Octane and Digicel have shared an amazing journey. He is a true example of what Digicel represents - real Jamaican vibes and culture. We are also happy that we could be a part of this album launch and we wish him all the best," Digicel sponsorship manager Tahnida Nunes told The STAR.

I-Octane says the album shows a new dimension of his artistic creativity.

However, his manager, Ray Alexander, believes the project mirrors I-Octane in his formative years, an I-Octane that dabbled in more reggae-based music than its dancehall counterpart.

Reggae lovers will indeed appreciate this project for its authentic beats and positive messages. The album will be distributed by Tads Records and has already charted on iTunes at the number-three spot.

Dressed in a full-white captain attire, I-Octane took patrons on his musical journey courtesy of a performance of fresh singles from the album. He was also joined by a host of recording artistes, among them Alaine, Beenie Man, Busta Rhymes, Konshens, Cecile, Alkaline, Tifa, Teflon and reggae royalty Ky-mani Marley.
