18 Karat Reggae has gotten an exclusive interview with one of the nurses at the University of the West Indies Hospital (UWIH) where Vybz Kartel is being treated. While she asked to remain anonymous and would not tell us anything about Vybz Kartel’s condition because of patients rights ti privacy, she did inform us that the world boss is still skin bleaching.
“Him still brown brown, he is almost the color or Red Rat,” the nurse said. “Me and some of the other nurses and doctors were laughing and saying is who him want to look nice and brown for in prison.”
The Jamaican Constabulary Force (JCF) previously reported that bleaching cream is a considered a contraband in all Jamaican jails and prisons. It is difficult to keep contraband out of Jamaican prisons, however, as inmates are routinely caught with cellphones, marijuana and other items that are not allowed on the inside. In fact, the biggest news about Vybz Kartel since his incarceration is that all the hit songs he released since being in prison were actually recorded while in prison.
Vybz Kartel is pretty much responsible for the bleaching epidemic that has taken over Jamaica, especially among men.
Kartel is currently serving a life sentence for the murder of Clive “Lizard” Williams. The deejay has appealed his conviction and the case will be heard by the courts in February 2018.
