On Saturday June 15, clothing company REPJA and Reggae artist I Octane launched their collaboration in the form of a t-shirt at the premiere clothing store “Base Kingston & Belle” located at the Manor Park Plaza. While the event started later than the announced 3 pm, customers and onlookers got to see the new t shirt along with other creations by REPJA owners and designers Andre Allen, Omar Thomas, and Prince Graham. Since their inception in 2007, REPJA has managed to gain recognition all over the world. With celebrities such as Shaggy, Leon from Dormtainment, Beenie Man, and Konshens rocking the gear, their collaboration with I Octane marks as their Introduction to the Jamaican market. The design features a robotic hand forming the “gun fingers” gesture to signify the phrase “Buss A Blank” which is the name of I Octane’s hit. Patrons were also treated to music juggling by DJ Vise, dancing by DanceJA and BG Dancerz, and performances from Canadian rapper Kardinal Offishall and of course I Octane. The t shirt will be available at Base Kingston, REPJA.com, and select venues where I Octane will be performing. The shirt is so cool, I’m sorry I didn’t get one.
