Vybz Kartel’s release from prison prank on April Fool’s angers die-hard fans

Reports of Jamaican dancehall star Vybz Kartel winning his appeal was not the April Fools prank die-hard fans wanted to hear.

On Monday, April 1st, 2019, news started circulating claiming that the hitmaker popularly known as World Boss had won his appeal.

Jamaican entertainment site Urban Islandz confirmed that the story is one hundred percent fake news and is a massive April Fools joke possibly started by a tabloid.

The news story claimed that the incarcerated ‘Gey gal easy’ singer won his appeal and will be released from prison this month. Sources have confirmed with us that the appeal court has not yet announced a verdict and were told that Kartel’s camp and his lawyers have been bombarded with phone calls all day.

“Whoever started this stupid April Fools prank should cut it out there is nothing funny about it, and I mean nothing whatsoever, cut that sh*t out man,” sources said.

Vybz has been waiting over seven months now for a verdict in his appeal case which wrapped in the courts in July of last year. One of the attorneys on his legal team, Bert Samuels, previously stated that he is hoping that a verdict would be reached by March of this year. He then follow-up saying it could take much longer for a verdict given the size and complexity of the case.

Over six thousand documents were submitted to the appeal court during the trial, and a regular appeal case can take anywhere from six months to a year for the court to thoroughly review the case and return a verdict.

Born Adidja Azim Palmer, the 43-year-old is one of the most prolific Jamaican artists today. In 2014, Kartel was sentenced to life imprisonment for the murder of his associate Clive “Lizard” Williams. He will be eligible for parole once he has served a minimum of 35 years in prison. Despite being imprisoned, Kartel continues to release new music prolifically, releasing over 50 new songs in 2016 alone.
