More 'Kartel' reactions

The sentencing of Adidja 'Vybz Kartel' Palmer to 35 years in prison has sent shock waves throughout the dancehall fraternity. Immediately following the pronouncement, several local and international celebrities took to social media to express their views.

BARRINGTON LEVY: Vybz Kartel get life. Parole in 35 years. I will pray for you.

Craigy T (TOK): Never rejoice at another man's downfall, whether friend or foe. What has happened to Kartel is unfortunate. Even if it is a deserved measure.

COPPERSHOT MUSIC: Jah know me hurt. The system sink di boss. Dem can lock him up but him works will always play. Big up Kartel, history u create a Jamaica. Prayers go out.

SPICE: Vybz Kartel get LIFE!!!!!!!!!!!! OMG

QQ: Despite the situation, I don't wish prison for no man. My condolences to the family of the deceased, my prayers also with Kartel.

COLLIN HINDS: #KartelSentencing ... they threw the book, almost the entire library, at Kartel ... 35 to life!! Heineken Startime when he re-emerges.

GAZA SLIM: Life is a journey. Adidja means a lot to me. He's my mentor, boss, best friend, he's everything to me. Adidja help nuff ghetto youths and producers become the person they are today. Life will never be the same. Never.

KEIVA: Jah know, life is sad. I am feeling this for Vybz Kartel and Shawn Storm. This is a hard pill to swallow. I hope all these artistes and fathers learn from this and think about their kids and family before they get themselves into problems. God know, this really touches my heart and because I grew up with both parents, I know how important family is. For Kartel, Shawn storm and the other men whose kids will not have them around, it is going to be rough. It is also sad that Lizard's family will not have him also.
