While many of Jamaicans have confirmed that they read Vybz Kartel‘s book The Voice of the Jamaican Ghetto, most have stayed away from the book simply because it was written by Vybz Kartel.
Dr. Carolyn Cooper, like many Jamaicans, admitted that she too was skeptical about the book until she read
“To be honest I was surprised at how good it was,” Dr. Cooper said during an interview with Wrap.
“Like many other people I had the prejudice that maybe its not even much,” the UWI professor added. “But
one of the things I was surprised about was Kartel’s attitude towards
abortion and I know this is a very delicate issue in Jamaica and most
deejays condemn women who do abortion… But Vybz Kartel has a very
sophisticated view of it in my mind as feminist.”
Dr. Cooper, who is a professor of literary and cultural studies at
the University of the West Indies, Mona, also opens up about her
controversial article published in the Gleaner last month.
