Easily the most controversial Jamaican entertainer of the last decade, iconic deejay Vybz Kartel continues to perplex the masses with his actions.
Despite being incarceration almost four years that appears to have done very little to muzzle his popularity as the artiste refuse to be silenced by the Jamaican Justice system.
Earlier this week a photo surfaced of the iconic deejay, allegedly inside the waiting room of a doctor’s office, creating quite a stir on social media. The picture depicts a pensive-looking Kartel, seated with hands clasped and shackled by handcuffs – seemingly penitent in prayer.
Is the artiste sick?.. is this another hoax or was he really at a medical facility?.. are two of the many questions being asked by fans on social media and various sects within the entertainment industry However what is evident is that the ardent Gaza fans are delighted for the glimpse of the artiste beyond prison.
Kartel whose given name is Adidjah Palmer was the focus of recent remarks by fellow entertainer Beenie Man who signalled his intention to be more aggressive and vocal in the dancehall, citing that the industry is currently too dependent on the 'Worl Boss'.
"Who say dem a run the place, nah run the place. And the man who ah run the place, caan really run the place. You have to represent musically and visually," Beenie Man said.
Vybz Kartel now serving life imprisonment for the murder of Clive 'Lizard' Williams and will not be eligible for parole before 35 years. However, despite his incarceration, he continues to dominate the airwaves in Jamaica.
Beenie said the development is not good for the industry.
"You have to respect Addi work ethics, but him alone caan move dancehall forward. The King caan allow the general fi run the army," Beenie Man added.
