Vybz Kartel who is a convicted murderer is being allowed to record new and make a living, while Tommy Lee who has only been charged for a crime but is not incarcerated is not being allowed to make a living. At least that is what attorney, Ernest Smith, who represents Tommy Lee, is complaining about.
Tommy Lee who is currently facing charges of lottery scamming claims that the police are preventing him from performing at shows in Jamaica and making a living. The deejay’s attorney says once uncle demon is not locked behind bars, he should be allowed to make a living.
“The man is not incarnated. You have an entertainer who is incarcerated, serving years for murder, and he is able to do videos, have new songs out there, and a man who is accused of an offence of which I am confident I am going to win, you are preventing the man from earning a living,” Smith said.
We are sure the incarcerated entertainer that Smith is referring to is Vybz Kartel as he is currently serving a life sentence for murder and has been suspected of releasing music from behind bars. Munga Honourable is also in jail on murder charges but he has not had his day in court as yet, so therefore he is not serving any kind of a sentence.
Although there was supposed to be a crackdown on Vybz Kartel recording new songs in prison, that has not prevent the world boss from flooding the streets with new music.
In 2015, Tommy Lee Sparta was barred by the police from performing at Reggae Sumfest in Montego Bay. The cops also listed him as a person of interest in a murder case, but he was never charged.
“Tommy Lee is no violent producer,” Smith insisted.
He said that police officers, by their conduct, are raping the treasury of money that could be used to provide services for poor Jamaicans.
Tommy Lee’s case is set for trial in the Home Circuit Court next month.
