The Portmore Empire which was originally started by Deva Bratt and taken over by the World Boss after, will no longer exist according to a statement made by Vybz Kartel this week. This was the statement:
Dancehall fans worldwide, it with great regret that I, Adidja Palmer have decided to disband the Portmore Empire. These artistes have been under the Adidjahiem leadership for years, where they have honed their craft and made their mark, and as such, are well on their way to becoming major forces in Dancehall. They have reached a level where they are more capable to take on their careers by themselves, and it would be unfair to them, based on the limited resources of Adidjahiem Records, and current legal woes of the Adidjahiem C.E.O. and team members.
I wish them the best and I am confident that they will live up to my expectations. In the future, Adidjahiem will continue to bring out new acts and groom them for stardom.
Former member of the Portmore Empire, Gaza Slim, stated that she and Tommy Lee have already started their own label entitled PG13. Vybz Kartel has been locked up since the end of September and is facing charges on possession of marijuana, two counts of murder and also a charge on attempting to perverse the course of justice.
