Today was a sad day for dancehall music and its fans. It was an even sadder day for entertainer, Ninja Man, who was convicted of murder and now awaits his sentence which could mean spending the rest of his life in prison.
The person who is having the saddest day, however, is Vybz Kartel. Not too long ago, the man the Gaza fans crowned as the king of the dancehall lost both is “world boss” and “one don” titles to fellow-deejay, Alkaline. Now with Ninja Man being found guilty of murder, Kartel stands to lose his “jail boss” title to the don gorgon.
There is absolutely no doubt that Kartel was the man carrying the dancehall torch behind bars. Buju Banton is locked up in a much stricter American prison and therefore could not compete in the dancehall torch bearing. Munga Honorable looked like he was about to compete but in less than no time he was out of jail on bail. The only other competitors for Kartel were Zebra and Shawn Storm. But let’s face it, Zebra and Shawn Storm, even if you team them together, would be like Khago and Gully Bop going up against Sizzla, it is just not happening.
With the don gorgon added to the mix, however, it is a completely different story. Vybz Kartel might find out that his reign on top of the jailbird short was shorter than Leprechaun.
Vybz Kartel had long hope that Ninja Man would be found not guilty, however, Kartel’s hopes did not come true and now his “jail boss” title is in jeopardy.
