Another fan said urged him to drop the album soon: “Hurry & Drop It Deh”, while another fan was simply in awe of the Kartel’s work ethic: “Do u know how much song u done 1000million dancehall greatest”, and another fan added that were not surprised by his work ethic because he never lets down the GAZA Nation: “Gaza one don never disappointed we ears with music.”
Of the over 900 comments, most are the fire emoji, showing that his fans are hyped about the new album.
Kartel who will have to continue serving his sentence for the 2011 killing of his associate, Clive ‘Lizard Williams recently called on his fans to stay strong as he continues to fight the justice system. His attorney, Tom Tavares-Finson, has already said that he will be taking the matter all the way to the United Kingdom Privy Council.
The album may be his show of appreciation to his fans for their support. On his Instagram page following the appeal he posted: “#GAZANATION don’t get weary! Guess it’s time for a trip….you coming?! #boastyslaves #corruptionprosecutor & #crossespolice deleted! Loading #truejustice #privycouncil #uk ,” he posted.
This will be Kartel’s 15th album and the artiste has well over 600 songs and has been keeping his fans happy from behind bars, since his incarceration. His last album, To Tanesha was only released in January this year and made it onto the top Billboard charts for current albums in the Hip-Hop category.
The Dancehall world will surely be set abuzz as the Gaza Nation awaits the official release of the songs on the album.
