With the days winding down until a verdict is announced in the Vybz Kartel murder trial, fans and supporters of the embattled deejay are eagerly awaiting to hear what his fate will be.
Several artistes and selectors have also weighed in on whether they believe the self- proclaimed ‘World Boss’ will be freed, based on the evidence submitted during the trial.
RVSSIAN (Producer): “Yes, I think he will be freed. If it goes by justice, then we can see where the evidence presented was weak and was tampered with.”
DANIELLE, aka DI (Artiste): “At the end of the day, Kartel is one of the greatest entertainers that Jamaica has ever seen and probably will ever see. It’s left up to the judge, the jurors and to God. My prayers are with him right now and I hope that everything works out.”
