Tanesha ‘Shorty’ Johnson, common-law-wife of incarcerated dancehall artiste, Vybz Kartel, says that despite her spouse’s lengthy prison sentence, she will be waiting for him and, in the interim, will be focusing on her children and music label.

Johnson told THE WEEKEND STAR: “I will definitely be waiting, I don’t have any reason to do that (move on). I intend to stand up for my three sons and focus on him (Vybz Kartel).”

sentenced to life

Adidja ‘Vybz Kartel’ Palmer and his three co-accused were sentenced to life in prison last week for the 2011 murder of Clive ‘Lizard’ Williams. He will be eligible for parole in the next 35 years at the age of 73.

Since Kartel’s incarceration, Shorty says she has been trying her best to ensure that her children are focused, while she has remained hopeful.

“The kids are not 100 per cent, but I am trying to keep them focused. I am taking it very, very hard, but I am not going to give up. There is a God and I have hope,” she said.

During Vybz Kartel’s incarceration pending trial, Johnson created the Short Boss Muzik label, which has so far released two singles School by Vybz Kartel and PG 13Gimmi Di Money by the couple’s sons 11-year-old Adidja and nine-year-old Akheel Palmer, who go by the moniker Little Vybz and Little Addi.

She said her sons’ track has been receiving rave reviews, and they intend to continue their father’s musical legacy. “I can’t complain; people saying dem bad just like them father. My sons also have three more songs to release shortly,” she said.

Johnson also revealed that Vybz Kartel’s fans can expect to hear more releases from the artiste because, “we have nuff, nuff pre-recorded songs that will be released soon.”

  13. She won’t wait .She’s probably not waiting as we discuss this .But one must be diplomatic and damn have this girl learn how to be a diplomat .Keep it up girl,but start get some real singers and DJs on your thing so you can eat a food while the attention last .Use the money to open a wholesale or something like that because very soon no one will remember you or your ” husband” .

  14. Her statement is a just in case statement. Its all psychology. As they would say ” watch the ride”: Shorty feels that Kartel may have a chance to win the appeal. By her making that statement now, she is showing her so call loyalty hoping that he will remember her level of loyalty if he wins the appeal. As Jay says she is being diplomatic but this is diplomacy at at its best.

  15. Unoo unkind to her sah. Allow her to go through the paces of what’s going on in her family. Wish her all the best cauz despite the foolishness, she has 3 kids to raise n we should atleast give a f&ck about dem since dem fadda Neva care enough fi stay out of trouble

  16. Seriously who want di bride of chuckie? A she fi wait fi pon him,because a she condone a lot of is f**kery and willing di know seh him a lucifa…

  17. If Me was shorty mi woulda pack and move to a land veeellly veellly far away weh di people living there dont even know a who name vybz kartel and the only reggae artiste dem know a bob marley.

  18. When she seh she await an nah move on she mean seh she will wait till dem meet in heaven or hell? I give Shawty 5 yrs top before she have a new man. Wotlessness now u get the time fi move on leff dis cruff afta all him duh to u… An u deh a chat nonsense bout u nah move on…. I give u tyme :cool
