    • Kartel should have given his life to Jesus, maybe he would have been freed, but him a devil worshiper and no devil can be successful in life for long, A Jesus mi say, and without him no man on earth can prosper, Some Jamaicans like too much slackness, they need to find themselves something progressive in life to do, like studying to make thy self aprove. Wake up and get educated and stop living off other people’s music to eat a bread. The word of God said, My people are ignorant because they are lack of knowledge. All you people you need to go and give your life to Jesus because on that day every man will have to give an account for his and her sins, Kartel cannot answer to Jesus for anyone sins but his own.

  2. Well when you have a government that is powerless to deliver or chooses not to, then it is obvious that people will put their hopes, trust and aspirations in someone or something other than the government. When your dealing with JA music and those that make music are quite frequently elevated into positions of mini Gods and often become the healers of the nation. It may appear ridiculous to many, including me, but when the power structure continues to fail the masses, I think, it’s the power structure that needs investigating not just the likes of vibes cartel…

  3. am frm Trinidad and i can say Kartel fan base is big here…d guy is by far d best dancehall artiste of this era….he is not d messiah but his music is influencial all over an especially in Jamaica..I hope he can still write music if he’s geting life time …Big up Vybz Kartel,Shawn Storm an d whole Gaza family frm me>KARTEL BIGGEST fan frm Trinidad

  4. OMG Dancehall will never b d same again

  5. Real sh–!! Kartel was making the whole world dance- and join together, look at the thousands influenced to move their bodies and forget how f—ed the world really is. It’s hard to believe that someone with so much going for them would kill over something so easy to replace. Think before you judge- is your life so perfect you’ve done nothing wrong? I doubt that a lot of you understand what it’s like to be judged by appearance and not by what’s inside your heart. Kartel will be on our minds always and in our prayers in the USA. Appeal this verdict and get a better defense.

  6. Kartel a the daddy fi dancehall reggae right now even when he is lock up no culb,party,are dance can not make money if the selector not playing. Kartel futher more a nuff people police and politicians kill all over Jamaica everyday innocently and none a them no gone a prison but the world well hear what is going to happen because them get way with dodus and style up busy signal and buju and a d world boss them want tek now well them better have enough prison cell fi hold all gaza fans from the 14 parish in Jamaica because if a war them want a war them ago get

    • It sorry to say a gaza mi come from and world boss gone to jail. This is an example of how serious the judicial system of Jamaica has become. He has been tried. They found him guilty. This protest of ignorance arrogance and lack of knowledge again awears the system of how much power the world boss have giving them more reason not to let him out. There is a way to a more peaceful protest. The evidence prove teacher guilty. Sorry to hear dat.

      • There was on evidence to prove him guilty everything was tampered with and to so it’s all circumstantial n further more where is the body ?? How do u pronounce someone dead with nobody U mean to tell me nobody has turnt up in two years come on SET UP!!!! They couldn’t get him for one murder so they stickin him with dis one … F—ery at its finest …Lizard a– probably in Cuba wit Castro chillin #FREEWORL’BOSS

      • Not because you came out of a community, you should be like the community. You need to give your life to Jesus, because on that day of Judgement everyone will have to stand before the almighty one and answer for his and her sins. If you should die and your soul shall be lost its nobody’s fault but yours remember that.

  7. mmmh ooooh not how come they have given him a guility verdict

  8. music that makes the people forget about their situation even for a minute. It is a brief but needed relief that his masterfully crafted relief bring to a down and oppressed community. It is a powerful thing!

  9. i swear these ppl acting like kartel is da next messiah ready to deliver dem out of poverty, all da guy do is sing music

    • U can say that again! Some Jamaicans are delusional. This man is a killer, extortionist, and devil worshiper, and hear how he’s being saluted. Are they serious?

    • Ikr. It’s ridiculous the way these people are getting on. Reminds me of the Trayvon Martin case.

    • Kartel represent fi di ghetto ppl and he belongs to the ghetto ppl and they are going to naturally defend what is theirs. Kartel brought niceness inna nuff ppl life, it is more meaningful to them then an outsider looking in would understand. the situation is bad for them and he was their relief, the way they see it, he did more “good” for them than the so called “justice system” did.

      • you said it best dan. kartel bring a different kind of hope to not only Jamaican ppl, but ppl world wide. yes he has plenty songs with explicit lyrics but he also has many reality songs that highlight d struggles the ppl face on a daily basis. Guilty on not am supporting Adijah Palmer aka Vybz Kartel aka World Boss aka The Teacher aka Gaza Dan, 150%.

      • Salute.

    • Kartel did god and bad, don’t judge him.

      • Don’t worry about people judging Kartel, on that final and last day when God put in is appearance all will be judged for his and her sins. Kartel cannot give an account for no one sins on judgement day but his own. All you people need to realise that Kartel is no God he cannot save anyone.
