Vybz Kartel lost a ton of weight since going to prison and this how he keeps fit.
Someone leaked a video showing the dancehall icon playing football at GP and let’s just say sports might not be a career alternative. Vybz Kartel famously gained on a ton of weight during his high profile trial in 2014. At the time, sources told Urban Islandz that his weight gain was as a result of stress from the trial and subsequent conviction. He was sentenced to life in prison and it seems he has been spending his time well.
We’re told that football is almost a daily ritual for Vybz Kartel and other inmates. “It’s one of his ways of keeping fit and of course there are other exercises,” sources told us. Our Gaza source who regularly visit Kartel in prison told us that he also plays domino and ludo with fellow inmates which are two of his favorite pass times.
Clearly, Vybz Kartel is not just making hits in prison, he is also staying fit and appears to be in great spirit ahead of his upcoming appeal trial in July of this year. The “Fever” deejay, as well as, other inmates at the Tower Street Adult Correctional Center prison visits were recently suspended indefinitely after authorities uncovered two massive tunnels on the prison grounds. Authorities believe that inmates have been digging the tunnels in secret as part of a master plan to escape prison. A full investigation is currently underway.
Aside from keeping fit in prison, Vybz Kartel continues to flood dancehall airwaves with a ton of new music making him one of the most relevant deejays in the business currently. He is currently working on a major project set for release later this year. Watch the video below showing Kartel playing football at GP.
