Vybz Kartel hit song “Mhm Hm” is showing no signs of slowing down.
Vybz Kartel scored one of the biggest dancehall hits of the year with “Mhm Hm” and now the song got its own mobile game. The song was released in September and has since clocked over 8 million combined views on YouTube. The concept of the single inspired a massive surge in sales of Suppligen, oats, peanuts, Guinness, and other related products used to make a popular punch in Jamaica. Some local grocery shots have even started selling “Mhm Hm” packages which consist of all the ingredients prepackaged.
Last week an android mobile game popped up on the Google Play store and its growing in popularity after Vybz Kartel fans started sharing it on social media. The app is titled “Mhm Buck Up Inna” and features a character with Kartel’s face that you can use to go through stages of the game and catch different items for points including the items he deejay about in the song such as suppligen, peanut, and oats.
Some fans have been inquiring if Vybz Kartel is behind the mobile app, but so far the anonymous creator has not come forward. Sources inside the Gazanation told us that Kartel is not behind the app and he himself is interested in knowing who is behind it.

On Friday night, he abruptly uploaded a photo of himself on Instagram sending the Gazanation into a frenzy. “Yesterday..”DEM A WONDER HOW MI DO DIS….BUT AS MI LOCKS GET LONGER HEATHEN HEART IT A TWIST,” he captioned the photo.

Vybz Kartel’s “Mhm Hm” was the leading song in dancehall at least until this week when it was overthrown by Alkaline’s hot new single “Suave.” The rivalry between Kartel and Alkaline is showing no signs of slowing down and this can only means more hit songs for their respective fans. This week, the Vendetta leader seems to have the upper hand with two new singles bubbling on the dancehall airwaves.
Since it’s released a week ago, Suave clocked 1.2 million views on YouTube and around 3.5 million streams on Apple Music and Spotify. Coupled that with airplay on radio and in parties helped pushed the song to the top spot in the dancehall space in a week. Vybz Kartel’s new single “Kremlin” produced by Rvssian is also doing very well with around 850,000 views on YouTube. That song was also released the same day that Alkaline dropped “Suave” and is currently the second most listened to dancehall song over the past week.
There is currently an intense debate among dancehall fans on social media about which of the two songs is better. You can share your thoughts in the comments below.
Kartel made the strong statement in his new song “Kremlin” produced by Rvssian. Both rival deejays released new music over the weekend and fans of both sides of the divide are weighing on which one is better. In the incarcerated deejay’s new single “Kremlin,” he took shots at Alkaline in a few lines. “Who borrow me style fi know say dem owe me pon the loan / We a mega star, so everything we do it haffi show,” Kartel deejay over the Moscow Riddim.
Alkaline has been criticized for the past few years for stealing Vybz Kartel’s style. The Vendetta deejay denied the allegations and his fans have been pushing back while also accusing the Gazanation boss of being envious of Alka’s rise in dancehall. “We all know that the blind boy thief Addi style and can’t come out with a new song unless he is copying someone style,” one fan wrote.
“As a non Vendetta or Gaza fan,” one fan wrote. “A non biased ear can’t help but to be honest that Alkaline stop following Kartel and find his own cadence and flow since his last album and a whole bunch of singles. I respect Vybz Kartel but fans use the days of him following Kartel to this day to ignorantly discredit his talent. On the other hand he had to do what he had to do because of you the same fans who make it hard for any artist to catch your attention and to show their talent without some copying or controversy.”
Vybz Kartel drops two music videos last weekend, “Don’t Come Back” and “Mhm Hm.” Alkaline released a new single “Suave” that quickly became the number one trending dancehall song on YouTube.

“How yo mean mi naan voice for Rvssian / Yow Tarik yo hear the pu**y them,” Kartel said in the intro while laughing. “Kahira get a almanac, bet unno say Adidja a / A go run the place all when me .50, what a caliber / Higher than the Dutch inna the coffee shop / So me trick the trickster with the dove inna the magic hat
Huh, see say dem a copy cat / A no nothing that me a the prototype, the quintessential,” Kartel spits over a bass heavy beat.
