The Supreme Court of Jamaica through Judge Andrea Thomas will make a ruling on the case involving dancehall singer Vybez Kartel.

In 2014, the 'Colouring Life' hitmaker was given a life sentence over the murder of Clive "Lizard" Williams. He and his co-accused have been behind bars for 12 years.

In March this year, Kartel's murder conviction was overturned after 10 years. Today, the authorities in Jamaica will decide whether the case should be retried.

In 2023, Human rights attorney, Isat Buchanan revealed that the singer was battling a life-threatening disease.

"Mr. Palmer's illness is actually life-threatening. To make matters worse, his attorney notes that for the last week, Kartel has been in solitary lockdown 23 hours a day over an alleged cell phone infraction. He's in a cell, and if you can picture a brick oven because that's how those cells are built, the ventilation is next to none," he told Fox 5 

The dance hall singer has been releasing music even when he is behind bars. 

In 2016, the dance-hall star made history after releasing over 50 new songs in one year. His album “King of the Dancehall" received massive plays with the lead single 'Fever' dominating the charts.
