With the official closing of the Havendale studio operated by deejay Vybz Kartel this week, the deejay says where he will be based is not an issue to the release of his music.
Last week THE STAR reported that the police said that the studio which is operated by Kartel on Kirk Avenue in Havendale, St Andrew, is operating without a permit and is a public disturbance. Superintendent Newton Amos, head of operations for the Area Five police, last week said they are seeking to have the studio shut down. He said police have written to the Kingston and St Andrew Corporation (KSAC) requesting its closure.
Amos said representatives of the KSAC had since reported that a permit was not granted for the studio. “It is a residential area and noise and obstruction is something which has caught our attention,” he said. The request for closure has since come through and the residence will no longer be operating as a studio.
Speaking with the deejay after the studio’s closure he said, “the music will continue to be created. Cause dem a go tired fi see mi face.”
The deejay recently released his latest collaboration with Portmore Empire artistes Popcaan and Gaza Slim called Clarks, and he is also being featured on Russian’s ‘Remedy’ rhythm.
