Vybz Kartel kidney infection is much more serious than we previously reported and some people in his circle are saying that he might have been poisoned in prison.
The “Fever” deejay has been hospitalized for a week now with a severe case of kidney infection. Sources close to the deejay’s family told DancehallHipHop that doctors have been running numerous tests on him to get to the bottom of his sickness. “They are still running tests on him, they did a blood test and a number of other tests, so we are now waiting to hear the results,” sources said.
“He is complaining about feeling a lot of pain, but he is getting painkillers,” sources added. We’re told that his family particularly his wife and kids are very worried about his health because this is the first time that he has ever been this sick. “Everyone is worried because it seems like his condition is much worse than what they are telling, it’s like the doctors are hiding something from us,” our source said. “Kartel never had a kidney problem before so right now we are even wondering if someone poisoned him because they attempted to do it before.”
In 2015, prison authorities foiled a murder plot against Vybz Kartel when an inmate smuggled knives and a poisonous substance inside a section of the prison. Two bottles of an unknown poisonous substance were allegedly smuggled in by an ancillary worker inside the prison. Kartel is only a few months away from his appeal trial and his attorneys have expressed confidence in getting him released when that trial concludes. There are chatters that someone does not want the artist to be free and are actively trying to do something nefarious.
Despite being imprisoned and hospitalized for the past week, Vybz Kartel continues to drop new music. His single “Mhm Hm” is currently dominating dancehall airwaves after becoming a viral hit when it was released two weeks ago.
