Colleagues and fans of incarcerated dancehall deejay Vybz Kartel, have taken to social media to show their support for the deejay, following the rejection of his appeal Friday morning.
The convictions of Kartel and his co-accused including fellow Portmore Empire deejay Shawn Storm were upheld after the Appeal Court ruled against them.
Collaborators Spice and Squash as well as former group members Popcaan and Sheba have reacted with shock to the ruling on their official Instagram pages.
Fans were in pre-celebration mode Thursday night, in anticipation of a ruling in the artiste's favour.
Vybz Kartel is regarded is one of the most influential and potent voices in dancehall music.
He was convicted in 2014 for the murder of Clive 'Lizard' Williams.
His attorneys say they intend to take the matter to the UK Privy Council.
