My question is who really won the clash, was it Mavado or is it Vybz Kartel? I was at Sting and I watched two of Jamaicas best deejays battled. However, at the end of the day no one seems to can identify whos the victor. Some people saying its Vybz Kartel and by the time I reached the exit another bunch of people saying Mavado kill the deejay. I am not a fan of Vybz Kartel or Mavado so I should be able to give my honest opinion about what took place at Sting.
Before I even go any further, hats off to Mavado and Vybz Kartel for making the battlefield crowdy and to also demonstrate to the world that we can once again have lyrical face-offs without physical action. Mavado is to be further commended for taking up the task of a Dj in battling Vybz kartel- a man known to know no lyrical boundaries, a man who feels that all is fair in love and war!
Now lets talk about who won the clash, Mavado or Kartel, yeah man its Kartel, nooo man its Mavado, okay its a tie. I know Vybz Kartels fans or Mavados fans might not agree but as you read on you will understand what I am suggesting. Fans need to put aside their personal likes for each artiste and admit the fact that both artistes did exceptionally well to have their fans going home confused wondering who won the clash.
One Man's Victory
Merciless victory against Bounty Killer and Ninja Man at Sting 2000 is what you called a 100% win. Everyone left the venue complimenting Merciless for dismantling Bounty Killer and Ninja Man.
The first half of the clash definitely went to Vybz Kartel AKA Adi Di Techa, its also evident that Mavado became a bit nervous. Even though he was, being lyrically punished by Vybz Kartel the Gully Gad stood his ground and managed to propel his self-back into the clash.
