Vybz Kartel winning his appeal is not the April Fools prank his fans wanted to hear on April fools.
For the better part of Monday, April 1st, 2019, news started circulating claiming that Vybz Kartel had won his appeal and would be a free man latter in the month.
The news was widely shared across social media giving the World Boss’ fans hope that he will soon be taking the music industry by a storm once again.
Turns out, that the story is one hundred percent fake news and was a massive April Fools joke started by a Jamaican blog.
Sources have confirmed that the appeal court has not yet announced a verdict regarding Kartel’s case.
When a local media house shared the story on their Instagram page, Kartel’s Kenyan fans were very happy with some even anticipating his Kenyan concert, sorry to disappoint.
Fans who learned that they may have to wait longer to know the singer’s fate were angered by the false information and immediately took to social media to vent.
