New rules lock Kartel out of this year’s YVA’s


Jailed deejay Vybz Kartel, has been firmly locked out of this year’s Your View Awards, formerly Youth View Awards.

The nominees were announced last evening (Thurs) at the official launch of the 2018 YVA’s at the Jamaica Pegasus Hotel and Kartel’s name was noticeably absent. His inability to meet’s the event’s qualifying criteria, has been given as the reason for the prolific artiste’s non-appearance on the list of nominees.

All nominees, among other rules, must be able to perform live at the awards show.

Kartel, who was last year’s biggest winner scooped five awards, namely: Male Local Artiste of the Year; Dancehall Artiste; Hottest Summer Song Fever; and Local Chart Topping Song of the Year Fever, as well as Musical Collaboration for Loodi done with Shensea.

Already, Gaza Nation has taken to social media to air their anger and disapproval at the World Boss’ perceived snub.
