I-Octane is back sporting a leaner image and hitting back at his critics following his weight loss journey.

While many of us may have packed on the pounds during the COVID 19 pandemic I-Octane was busy putting in the work.

The Dancehall superstar recently shocked fans as he re-emerged sporting a leaner frame at his latest video shoot. However, what sent tongues wagging was when a fan reshared the pic but added a screenshot of him many pounds heavier.

Clearly motivated, the “Buss A Blank” deejay re-shared the cropped comparison commenting on drastic changes.

“Life comes with ups and downs but when you’re facing bad times, that’s how you know your true character,” he said.

He continued, “Giving up is not in my blood … I see and hear everyone who did a style me when I was going through a rough time in life so I gained weight because of the stress it comes with…

“But guess what, mi neva dead so I know once my mind is in the right place again I can fix it…so this message is for the people out there who a go tru the same thing and want to give up …Listen to me, don’t”.

I-Octane’s advice and physical changes seemed to be well received by fans as many took to Instagram commending him.

“Speechless! Looking good though” one fan said, while another added “Many can relate to this in different ways. Thanks for sharing your real life experience. Ups and downs is real for everyone. You look amazing.”
