“Mavado is irrelevant. Him need fi mek a album. That’s my words to Mavado. I dare you to make an album,” Popcaan said during an interview on ‘Ebro in the Morning’ that was shared online on Thursday.

“That’s just some waste of time. A man like Mavado should be in the studio right now, putting out some projects, motivating these yutes. What you doing? You’re just chilling and trying to make mischief to stay around. I use music to stay around, not mischief or controversy.”
