Warders stationed at Tower Street, formerly known as the General Penitentiary were happy when Dancehall super Vybz Kartel was recently transferred to the Adult Correctional Facility.
A Warder who spoke to the Jamaica Star about the self-proclaimed Worl Boss’ arrival said his presence was immediately felt by the waders and inmates. “The presence of him (Kartel) being here was felt from the first day,” the warder, listed as Simon Willard told the publication. “The entire prison, warders and inmates a talk up bout him. We nuh know the real reason he was placed there, but a whole heap a speculation,” he added.
Willard added that he hopes the ‘Round Corna’ deejay, real name Adijah Azim Palmer, will start recording new music at the prison once permission is granted by the Judge as the Tower Street Adult Correctional Facility houses a functioning recording studio.
