"It is a tremendous feeling to know my fans are increasing worldwide.
When I just started my career, I knew I would be successful, but to see

is continuing to have a great impact worldwide," he said. "Big up to

million, but now the Unruly boss is the first male dancehall artiste and
the Unruly fans are continuing to grow."
