Leonard P. Howell
Leonard Percival Howell was born on June 16, 1898 at May Crawle in the Bull Head Mountain district of Clarendon. He was the eldest of 10 children born to Charles Theophilus Howell, a tailor and peasant farmer, and Clementina Bennett. While details of his early life are sketchy, Robert Hill in his publication Dread History: Leonard P Howell and Millenarian Visions (2001) reported that Howell claimed to have been a soldier in Panama and at Kingston’s Up Park Camp. Howell is also reported to have said that he was once a guard at Bumperhall Hospital, near Kingston, before being sent back to Colon, Panama. On his second assignment in Panama he was a cook in the United States Army Transport Service. Records from the Federal Records Centre in Bayonne, New Jersey, indicate that on May 19, 1924 he filed a Declaration of Intention to become a United States citizen. He also worked on various construction sites and even operated a tea room in Harlem, New York. Howell also had his run-ins with the law while in the United States. In January 1931, he was convicted by the Queens County Court at Long Island City, New York, on charges of burglary, grand larceny, and receiving stolen property and he served a two to four year sentence in the state prison at Ossining (popularly known as Sing Sing prison). In November 1932, he was, however, deported to Jamaica “on the grounds that he was sentenced, subsequent to May 1st, 1917, to imprisonment for a term of one or more for a crime involving ‘moral turpitude’. It was during these latter years in the United States that Howell is reported to have come under the influence of Trinidadian scholar and politician George Padmore, a prominent member of the American Communist Party. Robert Hill suggests that Howell may have internalised socialist ideologies which were the foundation of his Rastafarian movement in Jamaica.Howell’s return to Jamaica coincided with an upsurge of religious revivalism and the attendant criticisms for the colonial establishment. Hill points out that such resistance ranged from proposed legislation aimed at stemming its growth and island wide spread, to intellectual arguments such as that poised by one E.A. Glen Campbell who stated “it is regrettable that our labouring population especially in towns and villages are drifting away from the civilizing influence of the Christian Church; and following no end of strange religion that can do them no good.”
Jamaica in the 1930’s was, thus, an environment which was not conducive to radical religious teachings and anti-establishment philosophies, such as that already being espoused by Marcus Mosiah Garvey. Incidentally, Howell met Garvey while in Harlem and had become a member of the Universal Negro Improvement Association (UNIA) while in the United States.
Howell’s socialist background was merged with his immersion in Ethiopianism, the concept that Ethiopia is the birthplace of the human race and more specifically the African/Black Ethiopian race. Ethiopia was also recognised by its adherents as being a sacred place, a place where God found favour on earth and where He loved to “dwell”, according to the Psalms. As a corollary to that philosophy was the belief that Ras Tafari Haile Selassie I was a divine being. This belief was articulated in publications such as The Holy Piby (the Blackman’s Bible), which was published in New Jersey in 1924 and The Royal Scroll of Black Supremacy, published in Jamaica in 1926. Howell, himself, was to publish The Promised Key in 1935 in which he boldly asserted the divinity of Ras Tafari as follows:
His Majesty Ras Tafari is the head over all man for He is the Supreme God. His body is the fullness of Him that filleth all in one. Now my dear people let This be our goal. Forward to the King of Kings must Be the cry of our social hope
So, despite being in a space hostile to revolutionary ideologies, Howell in Jamaica in the 1930’s was determined to establish an organisation and a community of believers in a philosophy which espoused the Divinity (Ivinity) of Ras Tafari, Haile Selassie I and which sought to provide a black counter socio-religious philosophy to that of the established Church and the structure of colonial Jamaica.
Leonard P. Howell (circa. 1940)
It is important to note that Howell went to Garvey in a bid to seek assistance with the spread of his doctrine but was greeted with strong resistance. It is reported that Garvey denied Howell’s request, in 1933, to offer for sale photographs of the recently crowned Emperor Haile Selassie I in Edelweiss Park, the then headquarters of the UNIA. In quick response, Howell went to the steps of the Coke Methodist Chapel and started to sell his photograph of Haile Selassie. The photograph of the crowned Emperor was footnoted “Ras Tafari – King of Kings of Ethiopia – Descendant of King Solomon and the Queen of Sheba – Presented by Leonard P Howell – Traved. The World Through.” Howell also stated to deliver speeches on Haile Selassie and on the empire of Abyssinia.
His campaign to sensitize the masses to the divinity of Haile Selassie I as the King of Kings and Lord of Lords, started in Kingston but was initially met with little success. He moved to St. Thomas in April 1933, a parish with a strong anti-colonial heritage, to spread his doctrine. On April 18, 1933 he delivered a speech at Trinityville described as being filled with “words of a seditious nature” before a meeting of some two hundred persons. It was at this time that Howell started to gain the attention of the Police who began to attend his meetings. Indeed, a corporal in attendance at the Trinityville speech made the following record:
I heard Leonard Howell, the speaker, said to the hearers: “The Lion of Judah has broken the chain, and we of the black race are now free. George the Fifth is no more King. George the Fifth has sent his third son down to Africa in 1928 to bow down to our new king Ras Tafair. Ras Tafair is King of Kings and Lord of Lords. The Black people must not look to George the Fifth as their King anymore – Ras Tafair is their king…”
This correlates to Howell’s later writing of the significance of this interaction between the Duke of Gloucester and the Emperor in The Promised Key. In a chapter entitled “The Mystery Country” Howell wrote:
The Duke fell down bending on knees before His Majesty Ras Tafari the King of Kings and Lord of Lords and spoke in a loud tone of voice and said, “Master, Master my father has sent me to represent him sir. He is unable to come and he said that he will serve you to the end Master
Howell further explained that the gift that was brought by the Duke of Gloucester to Haile Selassie was a “Sceptre of gold twenty seven inches long of which had been taken from the hands of Ethiopia some thousand years ago”. The presentation by Gloucester, Howell suggested, was the fulfilment of biblical prophecy in particular Psalms 72: 9-11 which reads:
“..they that dwell in the wilderness shall bow before him, and his enemies shall lick the dust. The kings of Tarshih and of the isles shall bring presents; the kings of Sheba and Sheba shall offer gifts. Yea, all kings shall fall down before him; all nations shall serve him.” Howell also made reference to Genesis 49:10 which reads “The sceptre shall not depart from Judah, nor a lawgiver from between his feet, until Shiloh come; and unto him shall the gathering of the people be.”
Howell’s philosophy soon put him in trouble with the law. On January 1, 1934, Howell and Robert Hinds, one of his loyal followers, were arrested and charged with two counts of sedition each, arising out of speeches made on December 10, and 21 at Seaforth District and Chapel Hill in Port Morant. Both men were tried and found guilty and Howell received a sentence of two years.
After his incarceration, in a bid to establish a community of believers and a space where he could put to practice the way of life espoused in his teachings, Howell sought land which he could occupy and be far removed from the tentacles of the Police force, which had destroyed previous Rastafarian settlements. Oral accounts indicate that Howell bought a 500 acre property in Sligoville, St. Catherine from a Mr. Albert Chang in 1940. The property was later named Pinnacle. It is reported that he was able to buy this property from profits made from a bakery he operated in Kingston.
Chevannes cites an informant who reported that the bakery was run in an unusual manner but one which complemented Howells ‘criticism of colonialism’ as “when a poor man go there and buy a piece of bread you get a little sugar free and a little cornmeal” Chevannes’ informant also revealed that at Pinnacle marijuana was grown on such as scale as to render Howell the first ganja farmer: “Anywhere through the island a man want ganja fi buy is right here him come….He carry the best herbs.”
Ganja was thus grown as Howell’s main cash crop and it served to satisfy growing demand for the weed in Kingston.
It is important to note that ganja was not only produced for sale, but was used by the Rastafarians as a sacrament and is still an important component of their religious rituals.
But ganja was not the only cash crop that the self-sufficient commune grew. Pinnacle was the source of food in times of shortage and drought and it was reported that Pinnacle supplied the Government prison with food on occasions. Items such as gungo peas, cow peas, read peas, sweet potato, yam and coco were cultivated along with livestock including fowls, cows, goats and beast of burden. Interestingly, Chevannes noted, however, that pigs, ducks and pigeons were taboo in the settlement. Food was also stockpiled for emergencies and in case of natural disaster.
Chevannes provided a glimpse of life at Pinnacle. The children at Pinnacle attended an infant school within the community before venturing out to school in nearby communities and there was a practice of communal labour. He further described the space as follows:
On the edge of a small pond used for watering and livestock, the community lived in tenement flats, every three or four of which were separated by lanes with given names (e.g., Corn Lane)….On Sundays it was customary for Howellites who owned goats to slaughter and sell them to members who did not. And after the Sunday dinner they would gather in the parade, dancing and singing to the rhythms of the baandu and funde, the two kumina drums.
Pinnacle was raided several times between 1941 and 1957. During the final raid, the settlement was burnt to the ground by the Police forces.
In summation, Howell was instrumental in establishing and expanding the fledgling Rastafarian movement in Jamaica, especially at a time when anti-establishment philosophy was shunned, repudiated and violently put down. As self–styled “President General” of the body known as the King of Kings’ Mission, Howell also represented Ras Tafari in Jamaica in the capacity as Ambassador. He was also a teacher of the livity or the lifestyle and behavioural codes of Rastafarians and taught the tenets of their religion through publications such as The Promised Key and a newspaper called The People’s Voice. Were it not for his activities and the laying of a strong foundation the Rastafarian movement may not have been able to withstand the onslaught of state persecution in the 1930’s and even later incidents such as the Coral Gardens Massacre in 1963.
Leonard Howell died in February 1981. He is buried at Dovecot Memorial Park in the parish of St. Catherine. Bob Marley also died the same year and both men had the same nickname "The Gong".

Promoters are making a combined effort to lend their support to incarcerated Reggae and dancehall icon Mark 'Buju Banton' Myrie. According to an article posted on examiner.com, dated November 24, 2011, the support comes in the form of a benefit concert, which is aimed at providing financial support ahead of an appeal on Buju's three convictions stemming from a December 2009 incident. The concert is to take place on December 3, as fans and well-wishers of the reggae icon are expected to gather at a designated location in Florida to hear lyrics promoting messages of peace, love and harmony from some of Reggae's finest performers.

The concert is to take place on December 3, as fans and well-wishers of the reggae icon are expected to gather at a designated location in Florida to hear lyrics promoting messages of peace, love and harmony from some of Reggae's finest performers. The event is also geared at showing the positive aspects of the artiste's music, and it is said that the performers will collectively honour the embattled singjay who recently received a Grammy Award and has contributed to the development of reggae and dancehall music worldwide.
The Buju Banton benefit concert will take place at the Supa D Tropical Bar & Grill in Tampa, Florida on December 3, 2011 starting at 1 p.m.
Artistes billed to perform include Delly Ranx, Gramps Morgan, Nadine Sutherland, Glen Washington and Norris Man, among others. Patrons will be asked to make a donation of US$20. Organisers are hoping to make as much as US$50,000 from the concert to assist in financing Buju's legal defense. The event organiser, Taranee Jiles, who is said to be a longtime friend of Buju Banton, disclosed that she hopes Buju walks free sooner rather than later, hence her decision to host the benefit concert. "Mark is my friend and nobody was doing anything to help him, everybody was just talking, but nobody was acting," she was quoted as saying. "With Buju's blessings, I decided to do a benefit concert for him. Ran the idea also by his fellow artistes and some other supporters, who all thought this was a good idea," she added. The incarcerated artiste, confirmed the legitimacy of the concert, through his legal team and is said to have issued a statement urging his fans to turn out for the event.
"I, Mark Myrie - aka Buju Banton, support and deem the concert being organised by Taranee Jiles to be a legitimate undertaking in order to raise funds for my legal defense and pending appeal. Your kind support will be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance," the statement read.
According to Jiles via examiner.com, the concert not only raises awareness that Buju needs supports in his toughest hour, but also raises his already iconic stature to new heights given what his music provided for fans worldwide.
She also said that the event is a chance to show solidarity. "His fellow artistes should come together in unity to aid this cause. It is time for the people to give back and uplift him now. It will give him the opportunity to defend himself. The concert will help uplift him and assure him - you are not alone, we got your back. It proves to the world solidarity, "she said. Co-organiser of the event Dwight Blake expressed that Reggae music was widely recognised, and that all fans should support the concert because it is for a good cause. "Reggae is a genre that every walk of life recognises and love, it doesn't matter where you come from. Many people of different ethnicity, race and culture enjoy reggae, and it's something that can continue to be introduced to those who never heard it or took the time to listen to. Encouragement is the key and promoting the event encourages others to come out and support the cause," Blake said. The artiste is currently serving a 10-year sentence on drug-related charges. Buju Banton won a Grammy in 2011 for Best Reggae Album for his 2010 effort on the LP, Before the Dawn.

A distinctly Caribbean-British phenomenon, Lover’s Rock was like the Quiet Storm of reggae, but with a stronger beat. Perfect for slow dancing, the romantic style of reggae was wildly popular, but had trouble cracking the UK charts. The under-documented music and the artists who defined it are fondly remembered in Menelik Shabazz’s The Story of Lover’s Rock music documentary which opens the 2011 African Diaspora International Film Festival 2011 in new York City.
Though firmly rooted in reggae, Lover’s Rock was smoother, mellower, and less political than the music coming out of Jamaica at the time. It also boasted considerably more prominent female artists. Indeed, the acknowledged crossover hits were mostly sung by women, like Louisa Mark’s version of “Caught You in a Lie” and Janet Kay’s “Silly Games.”
Of course, there were plenty of men involved, especially on the production side, including bassist Dennis Bovell, the producer of “Silly Games,” who is probably Shabazz’s best interview subject. He certainly still looks and sounds cool. In fact, most of the talking heads offer a better than average degree of musical insight, though one academic comes across pretty silly explaining how the slow grind stimulated dancers’ chakras (and it is not meant as a euphemism).
While Story might sound like it should only appeal to a narrow range of fans, Lover’s Rock influenced many future top UK recording artists, including UB40 (who charted fifty UK hits, but never got their proper due, according to one rock critic) and even the Police. It has also gone global, inspiring a considerable Japanese scene (including an intriguing but unnamed band briefly seen in the film).
Strangely though, Shabazz largely eschews archival performances, choosing instead to show the artists (who have aged well, for the most part) performing a contemporary PBS-style reunion concert. Still, most artists remain in good voice, such as standout Trevor Walters, whose rendition of Lionel Ritchie’s “Stuck on You” sure goes down easy. However, the same cannot be said for the periodic sketch-interludes featuring British comedians, who are largely unknown in America, for good reason.
With this film, Shabazz makes “smooth” and “sweet” respectable. His tune selections nicely represent the music’s slinky groove, while the expert commentary puts everything in its proper context. Quite an entertaining music doc (even with the occasional comedic misstep),The Story of Lover’s Rock is quite a pleasant surprise, recommended beyond the core reggae audience. It screens tonight (11/25) as part of an opening spotlight on director Shabazz at Symphony Space and then plays for a week at the Quad Cinema, starting this coming Wednesday (11/30-12/6) in New York City.

21 year old Yasmin Shahmir has already made a huge underground name for herself as one of the UK’s foremost DJ’s. Beginning her music career as a DJ in London just two years ago, Yasmin has already founded her own successful club night, spun around the world for N.E.R.D., Taio Cruz and Eve, hosted her own stage at Wireless and played storming sets at Glastonbury and Ibiza Rocks. Fully established as a world-class spinner, Yasmin is now ready to make her mark as a fully fledged artist, singer and songwriter in her own right. Born in Manchester and raised in
Scotland to an Iranian dad and English mum, music has been a consistent presence in Yasmin’s life. Making a monthly eight-hour roundtrip to Manchester from Glasgow to visit family, Yasmin and her younger sister were exposed to the sounds of their parent’s Carlos Santana and Stevie Wonder CD’s. Yasmin’s personal tastes developed at High School, when she began to get into hip hop and R&B and developed an interest in DJing that swiftly became a huge personal passion. Though she was initially considering a career in physiotherapy, the lure of a life in music proved too much and she left university in her first year to concentrate on her DJ career. By this point, her parents had moved down south, so Yasmin relocated to London and took her DJ’ing to a whole new level, making connections and winning props that took her around the globe as a white-hot in-demand DJ. After being spotted in a club by none other than Pharrell Williams, Yasmin went out with N.E.R.D as DJ on their world tour, bringing a whole new global following to a British girl barely turned 20. Yasmin subsequently presented a show on BBC 1Xtra and was featured in Mixmag, NME, Time Out, Metro, DJ and iDJ, as well as the cover of RWD magazine. Throughout her formative DJ years, Yasmin was writing her own songs, and, after building a body of work, a friend persuaded her to send the first track she’d ever made to 1Xtra, where it was selected for Ras Kwame’s influential Homegrown show. As one of the key players on the UK underground scene, Yasmin has forged organic relationships with some of the scene’s most exciting and innovative artists who she has brought in to work on her debut album. After meeting Labrinth through her time as Master Shortie’s DJ (Lab produced Shortie’s first album, ADHD) and having DJ’d with Shy FX, she simply began calling people up and asking them to work with her.
That was in January 2010, and since then Yasmin has signed to Levels Entertainment, a Ministry of Sound imprint, who will be releasing her debut album in 2011. Invoking the stylish streak of a Neneh Cherry with the stripped back sensibilities of Massive Attack and the ethereal imagination of Portishead, Yasmin has managed to create something entirely original, remaining current while hinting at British music’s most creative periods. A&R’d almost entirely by Yasmin through the relationships built over the last two years, her music is a genuine reflection of this independent 21 year-old. Littering her lyrics with witty asides and candid choruses, her songwriting is as original as her look; both relatable and accessible, yet customised to reflect her own tastes and experiences. Production on the record comes from Labrinth (Tinie Tempah’s Pass Out and Frisky), Dubstep’s Benga (one-third of super-group Magnetic Man), Drum & Bass legend Shy FX (Dizzee Rascal), production duo MoJam (Professor Green), Grime guru DaVinChe (Tinchy Stryder, Tinie Tempah) and cutting-edge pop powerhouse Futurecut (Lily Allen, Plan B) “I want the bulk of the album to be produced by UK producers and have a very British sound and feel” says Yasmin of her as-yet-untitled debut. “It’s all about representing where you’re from and where you’re at. The DJ in me wants the whole underground to move forward. It’s not all me, me, me. If one has success, we all have success,” she points out of working with predominantly underground UK talent. “That is what is most important to me and I’m not going let anyone tell me different.” Yasmin’s debut single, On My Own, is released on 30th January 2011. Produced by Shy FX, it’s a furious D&B-based tune that Yasmin co-wrote with Donaeo. “The song is saying I could have had a 9 – 5, I could have finished school just like my mum and dad wanted me to, but I took the jump and did it on my own,” says Yasmin of the track that channels late ‘90s breakbeat culture. “Up until I met my management, I did everything on my own. A lot of people gave me a helping hand, but even to this day I go to gigs on my own and travel around the world on my own. I’m not moaning; it’s what’s made me who I am.” Another key track, Finish Line, is produced by Labrinth and is due for release in Spring 2011. “It’s about something coming to an end; whether that’s a friendship, a relationship or even a job,” Yasmin explains of the understated, mid-tempo track. The antithesis of mass, over-produced pop, Finish Line harks back to the days of trip-hop, with Yasmin’s haunting vocals and quietly insistent melodies perfectly complimenting the dub-inspired beats. Futurecut meanwhile have provided two key tracks: the sci-fi sounds of the esoteric Emergency Line and the Garage flavoured, tempo-twisting Giving Up. Smart, stylish, funny and gorgeous, this dedicated music lover is one of the most exciting females to emerge from the UK underground in years. Not only playing the hits, Yasmin is now making them, and making them brilliantly. “I’m a brand new artist, I don’t have any back catalogue or anything,” Yasmin notes. “It’s a genuine passion for music that has got me this far. The possibilities are endless.”

Having been named a person of interest by the police, dancehall artiste Flexxx said he had to cut short his stint in the United States in order to clear his name. The artiste, whose name is Omar Henry, was listed as a person of interest by the St Andrew North Police Division two weeks ago. However, at the time he was in the United States and was unable to report to the police. Flexxx, who had performed in California alongside Mavado and did other shows with Kibaki elsewhere, said he had to make a hasty return to the island. He said he decided to return even sooner after hearing an interviewMavado did with Irie FM's 'Music News' disassociating himself from him. "I could have stayed but Mavado did an interview disassociating himself. He called denying that I was on tour with him. He didn't have to do an interview like that. Because he did that interview I had to cut it short and get myself cleared up," he told THE STAR, noting that he also missed some promotional shows as a result. In the interview that was done with the radio station last weekend, Mavado said: "I want Jamaica to know that I am not on tour. All of the shows, I am doing by myself. I don't know anything about anyone being on tour with me. That's strange to me. I just want to clear it up that I am just here working hard on my album."
But when asked about the situation between himself and Mavado, Flexxx had very little to say. "I am doing my thing. I am signed to Hapilos Entertainment and my career is doing well. Mi nah really look fi who waan deal wid mi and who nuh waan deal wid mi," he told THE STAR. Meanwhile, Flexxx said his visit with the police lasted approximately 15 minutes, as he claimed the police said they had done their investigation and "everybody a seh yuh a law-abiding citizen and you a artiste." He said he was also asked about an incident that occurred in Whitehall Avenue in St Andrew which he had no knowledge about. Now that the issue with the police has been resolved, Flexxx said he will be returning to the United States to complete the shows that he said were going well up to the point of his departure. He said he will be doing a number of shows in places like New York and Massachusetts.
In addition, Flexxx said he will be releasing a song with Ms Thing called When Mi Want it. He added that hismusic video with Chevaugh for a song calledCaan Stop Wi Now is slated for release and he will be doing a video for Seh Weh Mi Waan Seh on his return to the island.

Another high-ranking Jamaican dancehall star has found himself in trouble with the law. This time, it is a well-known and popular singjay law enforcement officers have labelled an associate of former west Kingston strongman Christopher 'Dudus' Coke, who is currently awaiting sentencing on drug-related charges in the United States.
While a law enforcement officer has confirmed that the Corporate Area-based singjay is being sought in Michigan in the US on drug-related allegations, The Gleaner has learnt that he is wanted on at least two warrants. The singjay, who is one of the top-ranked artistes in the dancehall and has a number of hits, is also a green card holder. "He is not the only Jamaican entertainer being sought by the US on drug-related allegations," the officer said. The latest information comes against the background of a recent statement made by head of the Criminal Investigation Branch, Assistant Commissioner Ealan Powell, that a number of entertainers have popped up on the police radar and will be arrested soon.

SACRED FIRE is the title of Jimmy Cliff's new album, scheduled to be released November 29 by Collective Sounds. The set is produced by Tim Armstrong, guitarist with ska/punk band Rancid. It is Cliff's first album since Black Magic which was released in 2004. Prior to the digital release of Sacred Fire, fans will be able to purchase a limited edition, colour-vinyl version of the album. That collection will be available on Friday and features the bonus track, World Upside Down.
Cliff, who was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame last year, said working with Armstrong was a fulfilling experience. "Tim has such a great foothold in the tradition," Cliff told The Examiner newspaper of San Francisco. "He woke me up to a lot of the things I had forgotten. I enjoy the creative spontaneity of collaborating with other people — I always want to try new things." Armstrong was mutually respectful. "This is Jimmy's record. I'm honoured to be a part of it," Armstrong said.
Though his tours still draw large crowds, Cliff has not had a hit album since the Grammy Award-winning Cliff Hanger of 1985. That album sold over 500,000 units and earned gold status. Cliff's last big international song came in 1993 with his cover of Johnny Nash's I Can See Clearly Now, taken from the Cool Runnings soundtrack. In 2002, he recorded Fantastic Plastic People, an album for the European market featuring The Clash's Joe Strummer, Sting and Annie Lennox. Jimmy Cliff started recording as a child in the early 1960s with producer Leslie Kong. In the late 1960s, he moved to Britain where he enjoyed considerable success with the song Wonderful World, Beautiful People. He became a massive star after starring in The Harder They Come, the 1972 low-budget movie based on the exploits of Ivanhoe 'Ryghin' Martin, a gunman who terrorised sections of west Kingston in 1948. The film's soundtrack contains songs that are Cliff standards, including the title track, Sitting In Limbo and You Can Get It If You Really Want.

According to Go-Jamaica, Nine cops are now under investigation, regarding their alleged illicit interaction with dancehall deejay, Vybz Kartel, and other persons connected to him. It had been earlier reported that six police personnel were under investigation, but head of the Anti-Corruption Branch Assistant Commissioner Justin Felice said the number has now moved up to nine.Additionally, reports revealed that the officer also accepted money from one of the suspects in Kartel’s murder trial in exchange for visitation rights. Subsequently, the suspect was not searched before being allowed into an area of the Constant Spring lock-up off limits to the public; spending a considerable amount of time with Kartel while law enforcement officials allowed the illegal meeting to take place. ACP Felice also confirmed that the police have video evidence implicating the cops. Kartel is currently facing two murder charges, conspiracy to murder and illegal possession of a firearm. The artiste, whose real name is Adidja Palmer, and his stylist Calvin ‘Moonie’ Haye, deejay Shawn Storm, and Kiro Jones have been charged with the August 16 murder of Clive ‘Lizard’ Williams. Kartel has also been charged, along with other men, with the July 11, murder of Barrington ‘Bossie’ Burton, a 27-year-old businessman and promoter of a Gregory Park address in St Catherine.
