The skin bleachers in one of Jamaica’s largest prison took a huge hit this week as a substantial amount of skin bleaching cream was seized from multiple cells at the Tower Street Adult Correctional Centre. This facility is where dancehall king, Vybz Kartel is serving a life sentence for a murder conviction.
Warders at the prison conducted a thorough search of all the cells after numerous prisoners who were dark skin at the time of their sentencing were starting to look almost white.
It is not know if any of the bleaching cream was found in the cell of Vybz Kartel but a prison warder who asked to be unnamed told 18 Karat Reggae that the world boss is just as light skin as the day he was arrested.
According to a spokesman for the prison the skin bleaching cream was sneaked into the prison either by visitors or corrupted warders.
