Kartel Spent $1 Millon Dollars for crowd support?
There have been allegations that Vybz Kartel had bought approximately $1 million worth of fans to chair him on at sting, who later turned their back on him. It is reported that allegations are coming from Mavado's management team. In a statement put out by the management team it was quoted as saying that Kartel has No Visa, No Manager and No record Deal and was told to continue writing songs and not rely too heavily on the art of DJing. The statement in the same breath stated that Claude Mills cannot manage Kartel, saying that Kartel has switched managers and associates several times and implied to be unstable and should be reconsidering his career at the moment.
The statement also made indication of Mavado's achievement since he bussed in 2006, having won a number of international awards including the MOBO awards, having super star Jay-Z on his album, Mavado had Rollingstone Magazine's endorsement as the most important artist since Bob Marley and he also have several hits on the Billboard charts.
There was also mention of the fact that Kartel lost the clash at Mr. Laing's Sting 2008 because the crowd in the end was for the SingJ Mavado, when Ninjaman asked the question it was clear that Mavado had won and that Kartel made mistakes in saying that he "nyam punnany" and also the fact that it was a David vs Goliath scenario because it was Kartels Territory, the fact that he is a DJ and also acclaimed to be the best lyricists in the business...
