Sources related to the incarcerated Dancehall artist informed media reporters that Vybz Kartel felt damaged and betrayed by the same artists he assisted to get their massive breaks.
“Addi help to bring a lot of these artists to the forefront of Dancehall and when he needed them the most, that was when everyone disappeared,” sources informed media reporters.
“The only artist that stood by Addi throughout everyone was Shawn Storm, and even in prison Storm still showed his loyalty to the boss.”
Vybz Kartel and Shawn Storm are at the moment serving life sentenced for the homicide of Clive “Lizard” Williams. However, Shawn Storm will likely be eligible for parole 10 years earlier than Kartel.
On 3 April 2014, Kartel was sentenced to life imprisonment. Justice Lennox Campbell said he would be eligible for parole after serving 35 years.
Both artists have maintained their innocence and are appealing the conviction.
