The life sentence handed down Thursday to convicted Jamaican entertainer, Vybz Kartel could mean the end of his music career, with his lawyer saying the deejay will not be recording while serving time.
Kartel, whose real name is Adidja Palmer, was handed the sentence, with the first 35 years served without being eligible for parole, in relation to a murder conviction three weeks earlier after being found guilty, alongside three co-accused, in the August 2011 murder of Clive ‘Lizard’ Williams in St. Andrew. One of the main talking points following the March 13 verdict was whether or not the controversial Dancehall star would be allowed to record music while behind bars, a privilege afforded to Reggae singer, Jah Cure following his rape conviction in 1999.
That now appears to be a moot point.
