Kim Hamilton, formerly known as Gaza Kim, a singer and former member of the Vybz Kartel-led Gaza outfit, has shared her perspective on the infamous beating incident involving associates of the incarcerated deejay.
In a recent video released by Youtuber Sir P on his Politricks Watch channel, he alleged the reasons behind the beating. Kim, currently on tour in the United Kingdom, received several calls about the video and decided to clarify some of the statements made.
While acknowledging that some of what Sir P said held truth, Gaza Kim emphasized that not everything was accurate. She confirmed the assault but denied anyone had put a gun to her head. Kim explained that the main reason for her scolding was due to false allegations levelled against her. She revealed that another Gaza member had spread the news to Kartel’s baby mother, Shortie. Kim indicated that she and Shortie were not close friends then and that Kartel often sang about his behaviour. Hence, Shortie would have been aware.
Kim also stated that she had been hearing rumours for years of being a scapegoat for the incident, and the real culprit responsible for spreading the news was someone else. In retrospect, she hoped the incident would be forgotten and she could be loved as an artiste like Bob Marley.
It is important to note that Kim’s response shows that the truth is not always black and white, and there are often shades of grey. It is also vital to consider the impact of the incident on Kim’s mental and emotional well-being and her career.
In conclusion, Gaza Kim’s response provides a different perspective on the infamous incident involving Vybz Kartel. It is essential to listen to all sides of a story before making judgments and to remember that there is often more to a situation than what is initially reported.
