Intence believes that most acts of violence committed are as a result of broken friendships and betrayals.

“To me, fake friends and family conflict is the main element or contribution to violence in Jamaica in terms of bad mind, jealousy, that would mek dem want tek your life. Only the people closest to you can harm you, so you have to keep your circle small and loyal,” said Intence.

Statistics from the Jamaica Constabulary Force show that approximately 37 per cent of murders committed in Jamaica stem from domestic incidents.

The emerging deejay has put his thoughts in his latest single Say Dem Real. Released in February, the song is on the Sedway Riddim.

“Mi ah get a big buzz right now, it de pon everybody phone inna Papine and Tavern, mi career ah go from strength to strength,” said Intence, whose real name is Tashawn Gabbidon. “Everybody know the danger of a fake friend, so everybody can relate to it.”

The video was shot and will be released later this month.

Intence grew up in the Tavern area in Kingston where he attended Mona High. After graduation, he put all his energy into his chosen career.

Signed to Boyzie Records, Intence is known for songs Jett Life and Bad Gal.

“My family ah motivate me 100 per cent, mi father love wah a gwaan,” he said.
