Vershon moves to avoid war with Mavado
Following a mini feud with Jahmiel earlier this year, recording artiste Vershon is now seeking to avoid a confrontation with Gully Gad, Mavado.
Vershon’s move to diffuse a potentially hostile situation follows the labeling of his song, My Success, as a Mavado diss on the popular social media platform, YouTube.
“I guess dem like see war. Dem upload the song as Mavado diss and I have reached out to some of them and told them to take it down. This is not a diss track. If you check on my official VEVO page it is uploaded as Vershon, My Success,” Vershon told THE STAR.
“It is not aimed at anybody and I don’t mention anybody. I want fans to know that I am not responsible for persons labelling the record as a Mavado diss,” said Vershon, who added that there are persons who seem intent on “creating a vibe that was never there”.
According to the deejay, who fended off a lyrical confrontation from Mavado’s protege Jahmiel earlier this year, the song is intended to motivate persons to strive for excellence. However, his good intentions have been marred by persons who appear hungry for controversy.
In My Success, Vershon sings: “Boy come a boast, money fool, money fright. Yu nuh memba when you used to live pon di gully side.”
“I am over with feuds, but wi a nuh coward so wi not going to make people say what they feel without providing a stern response. But right now I am focused on making Vershon into a brand by concentrating on content that will stand the test of time,” he said.
According to Vershon, persons believe some lines in the song are directed at Mavado, since he makes reference to gully side in his first verse. It is also well know that his rival, Jahmiel, has been a firm fixture in Mavado’s Gully Side camp, which would cause some fans to assume that Vershon has directed his wrath at Mavado.
When THE STAR contacted sound system operator Tall Man for comment, he said he does not think Vershon disrespected Mavado.
“It is not a diss. As far as I see it, the song is about his personal journey, and he and Mavado are in no beef that I know of. Dem thing wudda well known inna dancehall,” Tall Man said.
Roger Barrett, record producer at Frenz For Real records, agreed with Tall Man. He believes Vershon’s mention of the gully in the song is coincidence.
“It so happens that Mavado used to be on the gully side, but that is not enough to say the song is a diss to the artiste,” he said.
