Vybz Kartel Says Tommy Lee And Popcaan Are “Opportunist” [DETAILS]

 
 

Portmore Empire former boss Vybz Kartel is in the news again for feuding with his ex-protégés.

Yesterday a statement was sent to Urban Islandz inbox allegedly from Gaza Slim and penned by Vybz Kartel, accusing both Tommy Lee and Popcaan of being opportunist. The alleged statement was also sent to Anthony Miller of TVJ’s Entertainment Report.

Tommy Lee and Popcaan, who are arguably two of the hottest deejays in dancehall right now, are known to use the slang ‘Gaza’ despite the group being dissolved by Vybz Kartel. According to the self proclaim world boss, they are just using the gaza name to push their careers forward. Vybz Kartel also questioned their loyalty to him, who is the chief architect of their blossoming careers.

“I just want u to let the people know that all a dem runnin’ aroun’ sayin’ ‘Gaza, Gaza’ are not real,” Vybz Kartel said in the statement. “Before I came here we were ‘good.’ No animosity, but within a week of my arrest, they started giving other people managerial and booking positions. But where were these people when I was building their careers? When I was investing time and money to transform them from nobody to somebody? They are opportunists and fake. I’m not surprised because this is Dancehall and I have no problem with them making their money. But I jus’ don’t want them to be all over the place exploiting a movement that I built with blood sweat and tears when they and I know they aren’t real. I want them to stop. The only two loyal people are Slim and Sheba (the girls) and maybe it’s because they haven’t fully realized their potential.”

Do you think Popcaan and Tommy Lee are disloyal to Vybz Kartel?

Sound off below.

    they are not disloyal. they cannot sit and wait for him to come out from jail when he himself does not know his faith with the law. we the Gaza fans are already disappointed with the world boss, he must be frustrated with his legal troubles and Gaza slim is becoming the biggest hypocrite of all times. go on popi, go on Tommy create your own marks.

    Popi go carry on wid him life. Me sure he know sumting about vybz thats why he no want to visit, its either he’s part of di crime wid vybz, he doesnt want to have dutty hands or vybz did sumthing to him. Slim is in trouble dats why she visit, sheba doesnt have the strength to carry on singing widout di boss around so she visit all di wile lyk a pupet. Popi and tomy knw wat dey can do and r doin it, dey mention Gaza coz dats wer dey from, so dem do nutin wrong mi seh. Visiting doesnt mean anythng really in a man’s world. Vybz dont want Popi to take over and become better dan him, FACT!!
