Vybz Kartel dancehall king

Beenie Man will be frowning when he reads this story.

But is Vybz Kartel the new king of dancehall? His loyal followers think so.

Members of Vybz Kartel gaza camp are voicing their displeasure in what they see as inadequate recognition in dancehall for the incarcerated deejay.

Despite being behind bars for over a year, Vybz Kartel managed to maintain a steady popularity in the genre both locally and overseas.

Kartel’s former stylist, Calvin ‘Moonie’ Haye, says Kartel should be crowned the new king of dancehall.

“Vybz Kartel still has a presence in the dancehall and if his songs aren’t being played then all dance and radio play come to a stand still, so Vybz Kartel is the King of Dancehall, that’s what the people are saying,” Moonie said. “Right now a lot of artiste are not making new hits because Vybz Kartel in jail and they used to bridge his ideas, so its one boss and anymore boss is a basket.”

Vybz Kartel’s most loyal female protege, Gaza Slim, also shared Moonie’s views on Vybz Kartel being the new king of dancehall.

“To how the crowd see it Vybz Kartel is the King of Dancehall, he is the world boss, he is everything,” Gaza Slim said.
