“I will always remember Food Kartel as a man who loved music, he was a great live performer, and an encouraging individual,” she said. “He was a real vibes man, happy no matter what was going through in his life. He would always find a way to hustle a money so that he and his fellow artistes could do road and promote our songs. It is tragic that he died so young.”
Food Kartel shot to fame in 2010-2011 with a slew of catchy singles centered around food. His single “Tyad” was also a street hit in Jamaica.
