Vybz Kartel Beyond Music
Vybz Kartel, a convicted murderer serving a life sentence since the beginning of his career in 1993, has been termed as one of the most influential artists in Jamaica. According to local reports, his style and musical influence has permanently impacted Jamaica's urban culture.
According to those close to him, Kartel is a warm and caring person.
"Kind and caring to those around and business minded," said a close friend when asked to describe the icon in a few words. "The persona that goes into the public is very different."
Born Adidja Azim Palmer, the 45-year-old has continued to donate to educational and community rehabilitation initiatives.
In April last year, Vybz reportedly contributed to the family of the late Jodian Fearon, who according to the Jamaica Gleaner, ‘died from heart failure exacerbated by last-minute pregnancy-related stress’ after being denied admission to several local hospitals while being in labor.
