Reggae legend Diana King has come out to question Vybz the Jamaican justice system for allowing dancehall star Vybz Kartel to record music in prison.

Diana King is lashing out against the Jamaican prison system, permitting inmates to record music while serving their sentences.

Vybz Kartel dropped an album last week dubbed ‘To Tanesha’ which takes his fans through through the ups and downs of his relationship with Tanesha Johnson, better known as Shorty.

The two were together on and off for almost 20 years and the relationship resulted into two sons for the Worl’boss.

The couple finally ended things back for good back in 2016.

Vybz’s issue of recording while incarcerated has come up in the past, with parliament ministers like Lisa Hanna calling foul on the special treatment the artiste is receiving.

Through a social media post, Diana Kind revealed that she continues to be irked by the special treatment Dancehal and Reggae artistes receive while serving their sentences.

“I’ll never be able to ignore the fact that a convicted artist/prisoner serving time, be it for murder/rape, can still record and release music from prison in Jamaica. How do you all do it? Is it because it wasn’t you who was raped or your luved one killed???” she said

Kartel’s album To Tanesha debuted at number 3 on the iTunes Hip-Hop albums chart and number 17 on the iTunes New Releases chart.

The hash tag  #Kartel was even trending in the US, which could have influenced Diana King’s subsequent tweet.

Diana is said to have also been targeting Jamaican singer Jah Cure through her tweet.

Cure was convicted of rape in 1999 and was sentenced to fifteen years in prison. Cure’s mega hit single “Reflections” was recorded and released from prison
