Vybz Kartel To Devote Life To Christ If Acquitted Of Murder

Vybz Kartel is currently behind bars anxiously awaiting his fate.

The former Portmore Empire boss and his four co-accused returns to the Home Circuit court on Thursday when the jury is expected to begin deliberation in what has now become the longest running murder trial in Jamaica’s circuit court history.

DETAILS: Vybz Kartel Trial: Juror Stalled Case

If acquitted, fans could see a brand new Vybz Kartel. A close source to the “Benz Punany” deejay told Urbanislandz.com that he is considering getting baptized and devote his life to his faith.

“What a lot of people don’t know is that Addi is a god fearing youth,” the source told us. “He read his bible everyday and pray everyday. The system try to paint an image of him like he is a devil worshiper. But that is far from the truth, because you have to separate Vybz Kartel from Adidja Palmer and Adidja is a god fearing, kind and smart person. Don’t be surprise if you see him get baptized and change his image when him get release.”

The source, who requested anonymity, also told us that Vybz Kartel regularly lead devotion with his pairs behind bars and read bible scriptures.

Do you think Vybz Kartel will become a devoted Christian if he gets released?

  • Belize

    Only people that think that way are ppl that never listen to his music. Listen to Thank Yuh Jah and tell me that isnt one of the best street gospel songs of all time.

  • Lageon

    Would that change his music?

  • Spezza

    Stop chatting nonsense. Vybz has openly said he doesn’t believe in religion. So why is he talking of getting baptised? Why does he read the bible, when he clearly says these things are man made?

    • Humble

      Just because you don’t believe in religion doesn’t mean you don’t believe in GOD. Religion was formed to differentiate what and how a person worship. Think about what you are saying before you say it. There are many people that are non denominational which means you accepts no religion but you believe in GOD.

      • HOTTEDD_TURF

        Apparently the simple minded and naive individual above knows nothing…religion is man made..Worship of The Almighty Creator Most High isnt about doing what man says or following man;s system its about doing what The Most High says(obedience) Not speech speech and your heart is far..lean not on the arm of flesh..I dont beleive in religion none whatsoever theyre all same..before you start thinking yours is the ultimate and true one make sure to do your research! do thy diligent research prove and test all things doesnt the Bible say this? Yet many dont do that…The Bible is man made, back then there were scriptures not “Bible” thats a name man gave to the 66 books they put together by who’s authority i dont even know certainly not The Most High..there are other books the bible even mentions of which i dont see pastors and others talk about..book of Jasher, etc etc The apocrypha was part of 1611 Bible so why was it removed..many qiestions to be answered..truth to be found..The bibles u have these days are corrupted why so many versions?? editions?

      • gaza mi seh

        Tru wud mi bredda religion is division mi

    • Peaches

      A person do not have to believe in religion because it was created by Europeans. We are to love God..The creator. Love our neighbors as ourselves. Be kind to one another.

  • JudgmentStar

    thank God for hard times cause God knows thats d only time some ppl actually call pon him

  • Stafford

    Ok, so Vybz Kartel and Adidja Palmer are two different peopleā€¦ Who is really on trial? And if Adidja is acquitted what do we do with Vybz? Can we get permission from Adidja to punish Vybz if he is found guilty? And, if Vybz is not found guilty, will he go back to his old ways? Will he need Christ if he is acquitted?

    • Unkown

      a real talk dat! mi rate dah one yah.

  • Eric Gumenu Zagatie

    It’s one thing to think you can fool people but it’s another to convince yourself you can fool god. He is not a vending machine. It’s not “I’ll give my life to Christ if” I get out of trouble. It’s give my life to Christ now and he’ll lead and direct my path, even if that means paying the consequences for ones actions. Smh try again kartel

  • jey addi palmer

  • Humble

    You people are ridiculous!!! You act as if Kartel was the first person in the dancehall music to say something violent or demoralizing when it’s been going on forever. You all are judging based off of what he appears to be. Kartel is an entertainer and his job is to make music that will sell. So if he have to say whatever to make money then so be it. That is his job. It’s simple, if you don’t like it don’t listen to it. Now really he isn’t one of my favorite artist but he do have some nice tunes that I like but I can’t judge him when there is a huge list of artists before his time that has been singing of violence, gays, demoralizing women and not one person fail to mention that. If you think I’m not speaking the truth, try me and I will start calling names. Come on people let’s be real. It is what it is. This whole court case has been misleading from day one. Jamaica looks ridiculous from afar. It’s definitely not what it used to be.

    • Burn gaza

      How u talk so highly like u are a Jamaican ? Thought u are nt one and never been there be4 . He his a devil worshiper and that’s a fact nt only he his entertainer and his job is to make music u mus uphold yr morals as a MAN and set example for childrens dnt sell yr soul for money becuz money can’t save you from yr sins kartel

      • PH57

        Burn Gaza explain to me how is Kartel a devil worshiper? I do understand that he may have an obligation to the youths but at the same time where are the parents who should teach the kids the difference between entertainment and reality.

      • Burn gaza

        Dnt ask any stupid question listen to his diss song him dj abt how many degree him reach Ina devil work and how much him nuh mus knw god. Fada devil Pickeny devil hell mi live becuz mi knw nah go heaven lol hell him deh yah now (jail) right were him belong 25 years him a get suh him can find get back his morals .wat abt the yutes dem dat dnt ave any parents ? Who look at kartel as dem parent. Kartel av no morals with him dunce self that’s why him deh a jail right now a bawl like a gyal be4 him focus on his music lock up Rasshole suh him can guh get back black with batty man laugh .

      • Marcus

        ((sigh))…..Humble and PH57, I never said in my post that he was the ONLY one who does it. Even in the old school dancehall music you here it but now its exploded because sex sells. Before he was incarcerated, he had the most influence especially among the youth with his music. And now, if only found not guilty of murder, you want to change? Wow!!! So basically if found guilty of murder, you won’t change, right? “GAZA MI SAY”. I don’t listen to dancehall music any more. I used to be a DJ and I used to be in shock and awe the way young people responded to this music. The reason why I gave it up was it made no more sense to me, and it made me laugh too much as to the shate I hear in the lyrics and that people actually listen to this and dance to this. But being a DJ is about crowd and not you. I didn’t want part of that again so I stopped. When you hear a show of one of those “popular” Jamaican artiste is coming up, you see the skimpiest and tightest outfits worn by women to attend those shows so that they can play the part in which ever song the guy sings. And that’s sexy right? I refuse to pay any money to go to a show to see a DJ and a MC on a stage running up and down singing everybody else’s music and not yours. So if dancehall is you’ll kind of music, please enjoy. everyone has a right to listen to what that’s appealing to them right!

  • PH57

    Is Kartel the only artist that make sexual explicit music demoralizing women? Do you really listen to dancehall music? You say but I bet you listen to his music. Your a fool. Listen to the man and go research what he speaks about outside of his music and go read a book. Maybe you’ll get better understanding then.

    • Burn gaza

    Why ual Diss vybz for, him not guilty at all…..!!! him so clearly speak bout jah jah in.his.music.why wouldn’t he get himself baptised…… free vybz peace out…..

  • Easy

    Baptism is to be re-born.. That mean he is willing to wash away his sins and start a new. We have no right to judge a man by his past if he wants to devote his future to God.

  • ant70

    If he is found guilty, he must pay for his crime, but they should allow him to get baptise in prison .

  • realyf

    gad na judge vybz like yu judge him….before long vybz write about
