Kartel criticized for new song
Jailed dancehall deejay, Vybz Kartel, is being slammed by some fans on Instagram for his new song, which some say promotes domestic violence.
Kartel recently previewed “One Box” on the social media site, featuring a woman with a black eye and a finger over her lips. On the song he deejays over a dancehall beat:
“One box in a yo face, just true yo reach home late, Jesus Christ good thing yo never dweet whole day, dead yo would a dead same place, the boy waan kill yo for your pum pum.”
Many slammed the deejay with one fan writing: “Don’t like the theme of this song… nothing to dance to here. Domestic violence is no joke. Some men will listen to that theme and use it as an instruction manual.
