The tug-of-war for the title of World Boss AKA One Don continues between dancehall’s two leading deejays; Alkaline and Vybz Kartel.
In the last few weeks Vybz Kartel seems determined to win back his tittle that was wrestled away from him by the vendetta boss, Alkaline.
While Vybz Kartel has been successful in maintaining his dominance in Jamaica that lead disappears once you past the airports in Kingston and Montego Bay. This is evident when you check all the music streaming platforms. Kartel has more streams in Jamaica than any other dancehall artiste but outside of Jamaica he trials Alkaline by a very wide margin.
Vybz Kartel might even has given up on retaining the one don title from Alkaline as the caged deejay as recently turn his attention to longtime nemesis, Mavado. In recent weeks Kartel has been throwing jabs at the gully god and even hurled the Jamaican favorite insult “suck yuh madda” at him.
Fortunately for Kartel, if we are to believe his attorneys, he could be freed by this March and is popularity will rise as he will be able to do shows and tours. So it might not be long before Kartel can close the gap in the lead that Alkaline has over him outside of Jamaica.
