The management team of fast-rising Dancehall entertainer Squash is denouncing any connection between himself and the ‘Mark of the Beast.’
The 6ix Boss and his crew frequently makes mention of the ‘6ix’ and the ‘6ix is real’ which a few Dancehall critics believe is a directed link theistic satanism.
However Squash’s manager, Heavy D, is refuting the claims saying his artiste is in no way supporting any evil-doing.
Explaining the popular ‘6ix’ slang, Heavy D said, “The six is not 666, is just six and it comes from six brothers, because is six brothers of them that grew up. People always a go try interpret things the wrong way but me can guarantee anuh dat (evil meaning).”
Despite his hardcore Dancehall lyrics, Heavy D says, Squash, whose given name is Andre Whittaker, is a God-fearing individual who occasionally goes to church. He added that certain things are just ‘music hype and the language.’
“Him is a cool yute, man. Certain things a just music hype and the language. We surely nah support dem thing deh, and I guess one day people will get the full understanding a weh him mean. Him nuh really concerned (about people’s interpretation of his slang) because him know wah him a say when him say ‘six’. Him did even talk about it already and say people must note carefully say him nah say 666, a just six,” he said.
Squash was released from police custody last month after being detained for six months under the Emergency Powers Act.
Known for hits such as; Lavish, Trending, Money Fever and Allergy, Squash was taken into custody on August 8 during the state of emergency in St James.
While the police listed the entertainer as a person of interest and kept him in custody for months, he always maintained his lack of involvement in any criminal activity.
