Usain Bolt Previews Clockword Riddim Feat. Vybz Kartel, Teejay, NJ, Charly Black & More

Usain Bolt is releasing a new dancehall riddim featuring tracks from some top artists.

The Jamaican legend wears many hats from businessman to track star and footballer to music producer. Usain Bolt often invests in multiple ventures, and most recently, he has been setting his sights on making dancehall bangers. The Olympic champion announced his newest undertaking on social media this week, and fans were excited to see the artists that joined him for the project.

The “Clockwork Riddim,” which is slated to arrive this Friday (April 9), has a star-studded lineup. Bolt shared a preview of the funky dancehall beat on Instagram, revealing that it will have guest appearances from the likes of Teejay, Shaneil Muir, ZJ Liquid, and even dancehall mogul Vybz Kartel.

While Usain Bolt came under fire after his single release for his artist and friend NJ, which was criticized for being mediocre, the producer ignored the backlash, and the song went on to garner over half a million views. NJ was brought back for a track on the upcoming project, which will also feature Christopher Martin, Lia Caribe, gold and diamond-selling dancehall star Charly Black, and even more.

The “Clockwork Riddim” presented by Usain Bolt was produced by A-Team Lifestyle. Look out for new tracks from Vybz Kartel, Teejay, and more this Friday. Listen a preview below.

Vybz Kartel’s Daughter Adi’Anna Palmer Reveals She Was Hospitalized

Vybz Kartel’s daughter, Adi’Anna Palmer, reveals on IG that she was hospitalized.

If you’ve been following Vybz Kartel on Instagram since his incarceration, then you would know that his daughter, Adi’Anna, aka Adi Girl Boss, is his prize. The 14-year-old, who celebrated her birthday last week Friday, told her fans that she spent half the day in the emergency room.

“I spent half of the day in an emergency room but I will be ok,” she wrote. “Thank you, I felt the love. I won’t be able to reply to every dm but I appreciate it all! Y’all favorite niece is 14 years old today!”

Her mother, Sherika Todd, shared, “It Was Prayer Time… My Child…. The Blessings Of The Lord Is Upon Your Life! I Love You & As Much As I Want You To Remain A Baby Forever, I’m Happy That You Don’t Have To Go By What You Are Told, You Can See Life For What It Is. Mommy Loves You & You’ll Forever Be My Lil Nugget!”

Last year, Adi’Anna launched her own record label, Adianna Music, at the age of 13, and Vybz Kartel provided the first single released on the label, “Play Our Song.” Kartel also tribute his daughter in a song called “Adianna,” released on her birthday last year. He made a point to turn off all comments on the song on YouTube to avoid any negative comments from affecting his daughter.

The dancehall star has been incarcerated since she was a toddler, but the two remained very close over the years. Sources told Urban Islandz that Vybz Kartel regularly gets visits from his children in prison, and he continues to groom them for the music industry to take over his music empire.

Vybz Kartel’s Son Likkle Vybz Urges Dancehall Artistes To Learn The Business Of Music

Vybz Kartel’s son says he has major plans for Adidjaheim Records starting next month.

Likkle Vybz, who is the eldest son of the incarcerated dancehall artiste, is poised to take over his father’s label, Adidjahiem Records, in April when he turns 18. In a recent interview with Winford Williams via OnStage, the young artiste and burgeoning entrepreneur spoke at length about how he plans to run the label when he takes over.

Likkle Vybz believes artistes need to become more involved in the business side of music as opposed to just voicing a track and then leaving it up to their respective managers to deal with. He told Winford, “Basically in music yuh nuh you can’t just be in the studio doing music and you basically leaving the business part of everything else in managements hand or somebody and you don’t really know what’s going on.” He urged young artistes to be more hands-on with their craft.

As it relates to the artiste signing to the Adidjahiem Records Label, his plan is for them to have a partnership. When quizzed about changes he wants to see in the music business, he mentioned that he does not think there are any solid labels behind artistes in Jamaica. He also expressed that he hopes to not just be signed to major labels such as Interscope, Atlantic, etc. “Instead of being like alright we are signed to them it would be more like a partnership with Adidjahiem records,” he said. The goal is for the artiste to still have creative control over their own music.

“Music is always bigger than Jamaica,” he continued. He emphasized that artistes should constantly be searching for the next step to take their careers which will also positively affect the future of dancehall and reggae music. When questioned about the girls and material things that come with being a dancehall act, he said he was not really into all that now, saying it was just an image.

Much like his father, Vybz Kartel, the 17-year-old announced that he has some upcoming businesses in the pipeline and an initiative for the non-profit arm of the business. He said, “Dancehall Royalty Part 2” was in the making, and fans should look out for it. The music industry is waiting to see exactly what Likkle Vybz will do when he eventually takes over.

It’s quite refreshing to see that a young artiste in the business seems to have a solid idea as to how he wants his brand and dancehall music to improve. One of his younger brothers, Likkle Addi, was also recently interviewed by Winford Williams, and he too seems poised to continue the legacy their father started. What are your thoughts on the interview?

Vybz Kartel’s “Dancehall Royalty” EP Debuts On US Current Reggae Albums Chart

Vybz Kartel scores a top ten debut on the US Reggae Album Chart with his new project, Dancehall Royalty.

It seems nothing can keep the Worl’Boss down. Even from behind bars, the veteran dancehall artiste continues to dominate the genre. His latest work, Dancehall Royalty, which features a five-song set that was released on January 8, has debuted at number two on the sales-driven US Current Reggae Albums chart.

Vybz Kartel’s latest work, which features his son Likkle Vybz, Renee 630, and Sikka Rymes, also entered the streaming-driven Billboard Reggae Albums chart at number 36. The US Current Reggae Albums chart is used to assess the top-selling albums based on data from Nielsen Music/MRC Data. According to the current ranking on the chart, Stick Figure’s World on Fire is the top album.

According to the chart, Dancehall Royalty sold 161 copies in its opening week. This is another chart that Vybz Kartel’s music does well on, as this is his second album to make it. In July 2020, his album Of Of Dons and Divas earned the top place on the charts. He was hoping for a Grammy nomination for that one.

Other notable movements on the chart include Higher Place by Skip Marley, which moved down to the number three position, while Afrikan Blood the album released by various reggae artistes moved up three places to number four on the chart. Buju Banton’s Upside Down 2020 was removed from number three to number five, and another various artistes collaboration, When Jah Shall Come, released by London-based Pressure Sounds Records, claimed the sixth spot.

Coastin by Iration is at number seven while Tropical House Cruises to Jamaica: Reggae Collector’s Edition is at eight. While in the other notable chart, the Billboard Reggae Albums chart, Bob Marley and the Wailers record an impressive 54th week in the number one spot with Legend. Shaggy’s Boombastic Collection: The Best of Shaggy by Shaggy comes in second while World on Fire by Stick Figure claimed the third spot.

Ninjaman Waiting On Vybz Kartel Appeal To Weigh His Options

Ninjaman is weighing his options to appeal but seems its heavily dependent on the outcome of Vybz Kartel appeal.

The dancehall icon is two months into his life sentence and already he is considering filing an appeal for a new trial. Sources told Urban Islandz that Ninjaman felt like he was never given a fair trial and the prosecution used a witness who he feels wasn’t credible. Additionally, he thinks that his murder conviction was the authority’s way of sending a message amidst the rapid rise in crime rate across the island.

“They set an example out of him purely because he is a famous entertainer, it was almost like they used his old sins against him,” a rep for Ninjaman told us. “Was that fair for him, of course not. It’s like getting convicted even before the trial started.”

Now that Ninjaman and his attorney are weighing his appeal options, one of the things that they discussed is Vybz Kartel upcoming appeal trial which is set for July this year after being pushed by from February. Ninja’s lawyer, Valerie Neita-Robertson is also one of the lawyers on Vybz Kartel’s case.

“Being that they are two high profile artists, the system will want to keep them locked up to send a message,” sources said. “Although both cases are totally different, the fact that they’re two big-name entertainers, the system will treat them different, they will have a tougher trial because of the added press around their cases. The government will not want to look bad on the world stage. Remember these two cases made headlines around the world, so think about how bad they will look if both of them walk free on appeal.”

Vybz Kartel’s attorneys were the ones who asked the appeal court judge for more time to prepare for the case. We’re told that Ninjaman trial also played a role in that decision, the lawyers felt like that case was too close to the appeal trial and would be too fresh in the judges minds.

The lawyers know that they will have to present a near-perfect case and even then, they still have an uphill battle to prove Vybz Kartel’s innocence. “Kartel is at a disadvantage any way you look at it but yet still he has a stronger case than Ninjaman so it makes perfect sense that he would want to wait on the outcome of that case to make his next move,” his rep added. “The worst case scenario is they both spend the rest of their lives in prison.”

Kartel, whose real name is Adidja Palmer, was sentenced to prison for life for murdering his friend Clive “Lizard” Williams. His protege Shawn Storm, and friends Kahira Jones and Andre St John were also convicted and sent to prison for life. The aced dancehall star will have to serve 35 years before being eligible for parole. In contract, Ninjaman, real name Desmond Ballentine, will have to serve 25 years before getting a parole hearing. By then both artists will be in their 70s.

Beenie Says He Makes 5 Songs Per Week Talks Spice & Legacy In Dancehall

Beenie Man says he is one of the hardest working deejays in dancehall even after so many years.

The dancehall legend also made it clear that he has nothing against Spice despite their running last year. During a sit down on Nightly Fix, Beenie Man opened up about a number of topics including his legacy and current status in dancehall. The deejay insisted that he is still the king of dancehall because he isn’t baptized.

One of the criticisms of Beenie Man and other older deejays in the business is that they still feel the need to compete with the younger generation of artists. When asked about that top, Beenie strongly pushed back against the assumption saying he doesn’t compete with any other artists in the business but still work hard because that is naturally who he is.

“The problem is I cannot go a week without making five songs, I will be a mad man,” the Doc said. “Listen, music just come by the beat, you hear the beat and lyrics start build, so every beat that plays in the studio you build a different song for it. It’s not competing, this is my job, this is what I do, I make music, so without me making music then me at my yard sit down a watch TV or a play game and I don’t do that.”

On whether or not he is taking away attention from younger artists, Beenie Man said, “This is the problem with dancehall music, why one man have to get all the glory, why everybody cannot get them own glory?”

“Alkaline have him own fans, Vybz Kartel have him own fans, Popcaan have him own fans, everybody have them own fans, so everybody is getting them own glory,” he continues. “Why is it that I am a threat to everybody? Because you is that man fan and you want that man to be where I am? Two entity can’t hold the same space one of us is going to blow up. Each and every individual in music have their own space, have them own respect and have them own time.”

Tony Matterhorn Slaps Ban On Alkaline Music For This Year

Tony Matterhorn won’t be playing any Alkaline music this year or perhaps ever.

The beneficiary of this feud of course is Vybz Kartel and maybe a few other artists whose songs will get more airplay on Matterhorn’s platforms. DancehallHipHop reported in December that Alkaline disrespected the veteran sound system selective in front of his face and thousands of fans at Club Euro in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. Footage of the exchange went viral online sparking a debate about the deteriorating relationship between dancehall artists and disc jockeys.

Seems Tony Matterhorn had enough of the shenanigan and decided to take a stand. While hosting a party last weekend, the “Dutty Wine” deejay had some harsh words for the young dancehall hitmaker. “Don’t unnu see everybody play? Me say me a give Alkaline one year bom***** ban, who no like it s*** your mother,” an angry Matterhorn said. “Don’t forget say me could’ve shoot up unnu blood**** and I said hold it. So when unnu hear me say one year ban Alkaline s*** your mother.”

Right after making that bold statement, Tony Matterhorm drop Vybz Kartel and Masicka single “InfraRed.” So clearly, Kartel is the biggest winner in this ongoing beef between the disc jockey and Alkaline. Sources told DancehallHipHop that this has been eating away at Matterhorn for the past few weeks and it was only a matter of time before he snapped.

“Alka really disrespected the man and you could tell it was something that was bothering him for a while,” sources said. “He waited to see if he will get an apology or something but nothing, just more disrespect from the other side camp so this is no surprise and he (Alkaline) shouldn’t be surprised either.”

Let’s hope that these two very important figures in dancehall can make peace sometime soon for the good of the music.

Vybz Kartel Delivers “One Box” While Tackling Taboo Subject

Vybz Kartel delivers a fire new single “One Box” while touching on taboo subject

The Worl’Boss first previewed the single in December last year which then cause some fans to voice their concerns about him glorifying domestic violence against women. At the time, fans were being urged to wait until the full song arrives and don’t pre-judge the track based on a snippet. But Kartel knew exactly what he was doing when he only previewed the verse to spark some controversy and build some hype ahead of the release of the full song.

Well, it’s finally here and you can listen below and be the judge. In my opinion, it’s the opposite of what the initial backlash was about, instead of glorifying domestic violence, Vybz Kartel cleverly speaks out against it a way that is socially acceptable in dancehall. “Him a go party, you affi go party to, him a give yo bun but yo naughty too… The boy waan kill yo for your pum pum, him a gwaan like say it under him foot, tell him say look you no old foot, yo f*** him and clean and yo cook,” Kartel deejay.

Whatever your views are about the song, you can always expect Vybz Kartel to come with something different and touch on some hot-button social issues. Aside from his lyrical prowess, that’s one trait that has helped him to stand out in dancehall over the years.

Florida rapper XXXTentacion announced last weekend that he has a new song with Vybz Kartel coming out soon. The announcement was met with mixed reactions from dancehall fans who thinks the young MC is just another whack rapper trying to drain some of the incarcerated deejay’s energy and popularity. Nevertheless, it will be the deejay’s first hip hop crossover single in a while.

Listen to Kartel new song “One Box” and leave your comment.

XXXTentacion Says A Vybz Kartel Collaboration Coming

XXXTentacion and Vybz Kartel on the same track should be fire.

The South Florida rapper, who previously claimed he has some Jamaican roots, announced on Instagram last night that he has a collaboration coming out with the incarcerated dancehall star. Rappers wanting to collaborate with Vybz Kartel is nothing new and in fact, over the last few months, we’ve heard rumors of artists like Drake and Cardi B wanting to get the World Boss on a track. The difference here is that this announcement is coming directly from the artist and not some unnamed source tipping off the media.

“Vybz Kartel featuring XXXTentacion, coming soon, lol only the Jamaicans and Hispanics know what i’m talking about!” X wrote on IG stories. XXXTentacion worked with Sizzla Kalonji on his “My Girl” single last year, but if this new single materialized, it will be the first time the “Look At Me” rapper and Vybz Kartel are working together.

Last year XXXTentacion blast Drake for tapping into dancehall for his last two albums saying that he is way more Jamaican than Drake claims to be because his family is mostly from Kingston. There could be some truth to the story since X is from Lauderhill in South Florida where there is a strong Jamaican contingent.

Vybz Kartel is currently serving a life sentence for murder but is still putting out a ton of new music from behind bars. XXXTentacion currently has a mountain of legal troubles and is currently under house arrest while he awaiting trial for kidnapping and assaulting a pregnant woman. In December, he was slapped with 15 new charges for tampering with a witness when he defied court orders and contacted his ex-girlfriend who is the victim in his case. Like Vybz Kartel, X is facing some serious time behind bars if he is found guilty of the charges.

Alkaline, Popcaan, Aidonia Leads 2018 Your View Awards Nominees

Alkaline, Popcaan, and Aidonia leads the 2018 Your View Awards nominees.

The YVA has rebranded this year to Your View Award and the producers are promising a bigger and better show set for February 24. The Your View Award is already stirring up some controversies with a major snub to Vybz Kartel due to some changes in the eligibility rules. Alkaline lead the list of nominees this year with six nods including Hottest Summer Song (Red Eye), Favorite Local and International artist, and other categorgies like Chart Topper and Collaboration.

Popcaan and Aidonia each have four nominations including nods in some of the same categories as Alkaline which means that the three of them are going head to head against each other for some of the most coveted trophies. Several other local acts who have done well in dancehall and reggae over the past year have received nominations including Spice, Shenseea, Mavado, Chronixx, Sean Paul, and more.

There are some rules for some categories in case you’re wondering why some artists didn’t get included for new categories like Album of the Year and Music Video Concept. “The YVA defines an album as having no less than five different tracks,” the Your View Awards said in a statement. “Sampler albums or albums which are compilation of tracks from other previously released albums are not eligible.”

Vybz Kartel Gets Snubbed From This Year’s YVA Awards

Vybz Kartel gets a major snub from this year’s Your View Awards (YVA).

Naturally, Gazanation fans are in an uproar over the snub but Kartel will continue to get snub as long as he is behind bars, according to the eligibility rule changes. The annual Jamaican awards show has rebranded for this year from Youth View Award to Your View Award. With the rebranding comes new rules which is at the center of contentions between the YVA and Vybz Kartel’s fans.

To be eligible for nominations, artists must be able to perform at the event ceremony set for February 24. Alkaline leads the 2018 YVA nomination with six nods including Hottest Summer Song (Red Eye), Favorite Local Male Artist, Favorite International Local Artist, Favorite Dancehall Artist, Favorite Chart Topper, Favorite Video Concept (Afterall), and Favorite Collaboration (“Gyalis Pro” featuring Sean Paul).

Popcaan and Aidonia trail Alkaline with four nominations each. But one of the hottest deejays in dancehall over the past year, Vybz Kartel, did not get any nominations solely because of his incarcerations. Dancehall fans have mixed reactions to the snub with some believes that the YVA took the right step, while others are saying its a move to silence the incarcerated deejay.

“So they have to ban Vybz Kartel so that other artists like Alkaline can win such a shame on the YVA, what is an award show without the Worl’Boss, in a Addi voice,” one fan said. Another fan commented saying, “We all know that the YVA is a Gazanation award show because every year Kartel dominates even when other artists out a road a put in the work. So I guess them a try remove the bias now.” Kartel was the biggest winner at last year’s YVA awards.

We will be publishing the full list of nominees soon, so stay tuned to Dancehallhiphop.com for more details on the 2018 YVA awards show.

Vybz Kartel Celebrates 42nd Birthday In Good Spirit & Marks Milestone

Vybz Kartel is celebrating his 42nd birthday today (January 7th) in good spirit.

The incarcerated dancehall legend received a family visit from his kids who were brought to GP on Sunday afternoon. A rep for his label told us that he is in good spirit as he marks another milestone in his life and career. “The Worl’Boss is in great spirit and despite his incarceration, there are a lot of things to be thankful for,” his rep said.

We’re told that this year will mark 25 years since Vybz Kartel been in the music business and despite being incarcerated since 2011, he is showing no signs of slowing down. “25 years in dancehall and still active and more relevant than 99% of the artists is something to be thankful for and something to celebrate,” his rep added.

Vybz Kartel started his dancehall career in the early 90s as part of the group Vibes Cartel. The group was later disbanded and he took on the name Vybz Kartel by just changing up the spelling. However, his big success didn’t come until the early 2000s when Bounty Killer took him under his wings and lifted him up from an underground act to the mainstream of dancehall.

Bounty Killer, along with several other affiliated dancehall entertainers including Sean Kingston, Popcaan and NotNice have since wished Vybz Kartel a happy birthday on social media. “1time fi a real G long live.. #morelife,” Popcaan wrote while Sean Kingston added, “Happy birthday to the greatest in dancehall music period… @vybzkartel 1 more year Pon dem!!! Gwan hold di faith mi don freedom is a must!!! #vybzkartel #seankingston #Gaza.”

Vybz Kartel Fans Roast Sean Kingston Even After Prison Visit

Vybz Kartel fans are savage for this.

Sean Kingston paid a visit to the Worl’Boss at GP last week and came back saying that the dancehall icon is in good spirit and has big plans for this year. You would think that is some great news for the Gazanation fans but turns out that Kingston got trolled instead of a pat on the back all because his pant was a bit too tight for some folks.

Sean Kingston posted a photo of himself and two of Vybz Kartel’s friends, Sikka Rymes and Theo Prince, standing outside the prison on the day he visited the deejay. “2nd day back in Just went to pay the Wurlboss @vybzkartel another visit di teacher is in good faith with a lot of great plans for #2018 Big up di link @sikka_rymes for the invitation,” the reggae-pop singer wrote.

Some of Vybz Kartel fans went in about his outfit among other things that I think went a bit too far. “Free up the World Boss and tell Sean Kingston fi free up him pants,” one fan wrote, while another added, “His bottom half fava when miss kitty stand up and pose.”

One fan even suggested that Vybz Kartel should refuse to meet with him dressing like he was. “Why would the boss meet with this man dressing like that is not a good look,” the fan said.

Wyclef Jean Explains Why He Likes Vybz Kartel So Much, Talks Reggae Influence Globally

Wyclef Jean is a big fan of Vybz Kartel and here is why he has so much respect for the incarcerated dancehall icon.

Clef is currently in Jamaica for the upcoming Shaggy and Friends benefit concert this weekend in Kingston. But before he graced the stage, he had a sit down with Winford Williams on OnStage where he opened up about local talents and the heavy usage of reggae/dancehall in mainstream music currently. Despite the heavy sampling of Jamaican music by international acts, very few local artists are making it to the mainstream like Shaggy and Sean Paul did.

“Do you know why I like Vybz Kartel so much,” Wyclef said. “Because he understands this, at the end of the day right, if I can’t sell you a CD right now and you said man Clef can’t sell music no more but guess what I know I can sell you for sure, a Wyclef guitar.”

The former Fugee frontman spoke at length about Caribbean artists talent and their need to understand the music business fully in order to push their careers to the top. “This is what I want kids to understand, the music business is a 360, when you coming in now create a brand, do not be just an artist no more, become a brand,” he said.

Wyclef Jean also spoke about his new album Carnival 3, going on tour next year, and his presidential bid for Haiti. He started out by clearing up some rumors about his foundation Yele Haiti after a New York-based state attorney conducted an investigation over financial irregularities. Clef said that the whole investigation was a smear campaign to take down his presidential bid. The entire interview was well received with the music icon opening up about a lot of topics. You can see him live this weekend at Shaggy and Friends on the lawns of Jamaica House.

Vybz Kartel Told Sean Kingston Some Good News About 2018

Sean Kingston paid Vybz Kartel a visit in prison recently and came back with a message from the Worl’Boss.

The reggae pop singer recently concluded his tour overseas and returned to Jamaica just in time for Christmas to spend the holidays in his homeland with his family. One of the first thing he did when he returned home was to visit Vybz Kartel and sources told us that it was the incarcerated deejay’s request to have Kingston visit him over at GP to discuss some business, as well as, some big plans for 2018.

“2nd day back in [Jamaica],” Kingston wrote on Instagram in the caption of a photo of himself and Sikka Rymes who is a close friend of Kartel. “Just went to pay the Wurlboss [Vybz Kartel] another visit… di teacher is in goodfaith with a lot of great plans for #2018 Big up di link @sikka_rymes for the invitation.”

While he didn’t revealed the exact plans that Kartel has for the new year, sources told us that he is planning to drop a new album as well as a ton of new music. “We have a major project in the works for the new year,” sources told us. “2018 will be bigger and better just stay tune its total domination from the Wor’Boss boss it ago sick.”

This is the second visit Sean Kingston made to Vybz Kartel in prison this year following his first visit in March.

How Ninjaman Conviction Could Shatter Vybz Kartel Appeal

Ninjaman murder conviction could affect Vybz Kartel appeal.

The dancehall legend was convicted of murder on November 20, 2017, and was sentenced to life in prison for the crime. In the middle of Ninjaman’s trial, Vybz Kartel upcoming appeal was pushed back from February to July of next year and now we are learning the reasons behind the delay is because of Ninjaman’s trial. But just how much could a trial involving another dancehall deejay affect Kartel’s appeal? Dancehallhiphop.com reported last month that Kartel attorneys requested more time to prepare for the case and it was granted.

Sources close to the incarcerated deejay told us that his attorneys became worried that Ninjaman’s highly publicized trial could have some impact on the outcome of his appeal case. “Maybe they thought that Ninjaman conviction could sway the judges in some way shape or form so it was a smart move to have the trial push back further down the road,” sources said. “You just never know what could happen with these delicate cases and the fact that this may be his last chance at freedom, they want to get it right so I think they made the right decision to push back the case.”

Ninjaman, real name Desmond Ballentine, has indicated that he is considering appealing his conviction, but our legal sources told us that his case was a slam dunk for the prosecution which makes it much harder for him to even get a green light from the appeal court. “Unlike Kartel’s case which had a lot of things wrong with it, Ninja’s case was a slam dunk for the prosecutor who had solid witnesses in that case. That makes it much more difficult for the appeal court judges to approve an appeal.”

Both Vybz Kartel and Ninjaman are currently serving life in prison for murder, but the Gazanation deejay and his attorneys have one more shot to secure his freedom. The Don Gorgon will have to serve 25 years before being eligible for parole while the Worl’Boss will have to serve 35 years.

Dancehall Reacts To Ninjaman Life Sentence

Dancehall fans have mixed reaction to Ninjaman life sentence.

The harsh penalty was handed down in the Home Circuit Court in Kingston on Monday (December 18, 2017) following his murder conviction on November 20th, nearly a month prior. Ninjaman felt like he was given an unfair trial and vow to appeal, but in Jamaica as evident with Vybz Kartel case, appeals could take several years to even get a hearing in Jamaica.

During his sentencing hearing, Dancehall Queen Carlene, and dancehall artist Stacious, gave character testimony on behalf of the deejay but that wasn’t enough to sway the judge. Fans have since been weighing in on the sentencing with some calling it harsh while others think it didn’t go far enough.

“That’s why crimes and the law is not being taken seriously because people are being handed lenient sentences for heinousness crimes,” one fan wrote on social media while another added, “Did he not commit murder? If so why is he not in prison for life? And the other two as well? What’s up with that?”

“Jamaica Justice system is really a man murder him babymother & dump r body Inna gutter get 15yrs & it caught on camera.. A man say him saw Ninjaman kill a man Ninja get life imprisonment ..what kind a justice system we have a Jamaica @andrewholnessjm d system wah scrap,” one fan who supports Ninjaman vents.

Ninjaman will be serving his life sentence at the same prison where Vybz Kartel is currently housed, GP.

Vybz Kartel Trolls Alkaline For Dissing Tony Matterhorn

Vybz Kartel is trolling Alkaline on Instagram for dissing Tony Matterhorn last weekend.

In case you have been living in a cake for the past few days, Alkaline stepped to Tony Matterhorn on stage last Friday night during his birthday party at Club Euro in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. The veteran sound system selector was the main disc jockey at the birthday bash which saw thousands of Vendetta fans turned out for the event. Matterhorn was playing mostly Alkaline and his allies music all night, but then music start coming from Tommy Lee Sparta, Popcaan, and then a Vybz Kartel song was the straw that broke the camel’s back.

The “Champion Boy” deejay was furious and made his way onto the stage with his goons to confront TM and told him to his face that he is a pu**y for pulling off the stunt. Vybz Kartel seems to be having a field day with the development and has since sound off on Instagram about it. “WHAT’S A PARTY WITHOUT VYBZKARTEL MUSIC?? DWBCL,” Kartel wrote in his IG bio before adding, “How does it feel being labelled a photo copy artiste? Guess i’ll never know, dwfl.”

Gaza Kim Talks Being Beaten By Vybz Kartel Cronies, Rape & Depression

Kym Hamilton, formerly known as Gaza Kim, has opened up about being beaten by Vybz Kartel cronies and going into a state of depression since then.

Gaza Kim was once one of the fastest rising dancehall artist inside Vybz Kartel’s now disbanded Portmore Empire, but her fast rise came to an end in 2010 when she was beaten by cronies of her mentor Vybz Kartel. In a powerful new single “God Plan,” the female dancehall deejay opened up about the assault, her depression and even having a miscarriage.

“Them tell a bag a lie pon me fi mek mi get beaten / The bugga them want to see me weaken / But mi never weak at all only mi bladder get weaken / Maybe because it was on a weekend / Friday, January 22nd, 2010 was when mi life change,” she sings.

During an interview on NightlyFix, she opened up about her life following that incident and how it sent her into a state of depression and weight gain.
