Utech Students Demand Apology from Kartel

News surfaced recently, that popular Dancehall Artiste Vybz Kartel made offensive remarks about the students of the University of Technology, Jamaica (Utech), while at the same time lauding students attending the University of the West Indies (UWI). It is being alleged that this was done while in performance at the Freshers Fete held at UWI Student Union on Friday, September 4, 2009.

Kartel stated “UWI a di university this of the west indies, yu zimi, dats why wi seh UWI doh? cause if yu did seh UTECH, dat mean seh you tek b**dy innah yu b**ty”

Following these disparaging utterances students of Utech were grossly offended by Kartel’s demeaning remarks, and understandably so the students are now demanding an apology from the Artiste. These Students have taken the stance that if an apology is not issued they will boycott Vybz KArtels music and future performances at the institution.

In defense of his fellow Utech students, Exile Di Brave, has voiced his opinion on a track, condemning Kartel’s utterances and showing love and respect for students, of both the tertiary institutions.
