Dancehall deejay VYBZ KARTEL was granted bail to the sum of JMD$3 million (£21,496) when he appeared in Jamaica’s Home Circuit Court yesterday.
He was granted bail on the murder charge relating to the death of Barrington 'Bossie' Bryan who was shot dead in Gregory Park, St Catherine last year.
According to the Jamaica Observer, KARTEL whose real name is Adidja Palmer will remain in prison as he faces another murder charge in relation the death of Clive 'Lizard' Williams.
He is expected to return to court on 13 April.
Earlier this week the Jamaican artist made the front pages again with a new hairstyle – this time ditching his extensions in favour of a short cropped look. Check out the Jamaica Star for exclusive photos.
He appeared in court on a separate drugs trial on Wednesday, but this has now been put off until 13 April due to the no-show of witnesses.
Two recent VYBZ KARTEL tracks feature in this month's ReggaeChapter podcast hosted by DJ RICHIE BLOOD. The tracks are "Party Me Say" on the Worldwide Riddim and "Love You Enuh" on the Lost Angel Riddim.
