Vybz Kartel is hoping and praying that fellow dancehall artist, Ninja Man, is not found guilty of the murder charge that he is now facing, according to an inmate in the same prison as Kartel.
The inmate claimed that Kartel got very worried when he heard that a judge had ordered that the trial for Ninja Man begin immediately.
Kartel who has already lost his “world boss” title to a younger and more lyrical Alkaline, cannot afford to lose his “jail boss” title.
“Right now Kartel know that the level of respect wi have fi di Gorgon means if Ninja come here he will be running things instantly,” the inmate told 18 Karat Reggae from a cellphone that was smuggled into the prison.
“If Ninja come to this prison, Kartel would have to empty and wash his chimmy plus sweep out his cell, I can you that now,” continued the inmate who asked to remain anonymous.
Ninja Man was arrested and charged with murder in 2009 for the fatal shooting of Ricardo Johnson. His son Janeil Ballentine and another man, Dennis Clayton were also charged in the murder.
Ninja Man’s attorney, Valerie Neita-Robertson, asked for a stay of proceedings in the eight-year-old case for abuse of process. There have been 17 trial dates and 23 mention dates in the case.
The judge denied the stay and instructed Ninja Man’s attorney that any abuse could be taken up in the trial.
