Dancehall star Vybz Kartel recently told media reporters that life in prison is somewhat of a Groundhog Day existence, the deejay, who also earned notoriety in recent years following his admission of bleaching his skin, says his spirit hasn’t been broken.
“I’m in the highest spirit, thank you. In here, everything is a repetition wake, bathe, lock down again. Eat, sleep, repeat. I feel like a robot. But in my cell, I have countless books to read and I also write, too. That’s how I pass my days, occasionally watching TV. I am always occupied, so that kinda keeps me focused.”
Despite his seemingly positive outlook, Kartel is by no means happy about his current situation.
The entertainer, along with other men, was arrested and taken into custody in 2011, charged with the murder of businessman Barrington ‘Bossy’ Burton. He was subsequently charged with another murder, that of dancer Clive ‘Lizard’ Williams.
In July, Kartel was found not guilty of Burton’s murder, but he remains in prison, as the trial for the murder of Williams undergoes, who the police allege, was beaten to death at the deejay’s home in a dispute about 2 missing firearm.
Kartel’s lengthy incarceration has sparked outrage among many in the dancehall fraternity who believe it is unjust that the entertainer has remained imprisoned for over two years without trial.
