His long-time partner Shorty got in on the act by simply wishing him “Happy birthday my husband love you” with some heart emojis. His reply was also of a similar vein with “love you babe”, seemingly giving more support to the claim that he and Shorty are back together following up on a recent post of them kissing.

Also acknowledging the deejay’s birthday were fellow incarcerated entertainer Shawn Storm who said, “More Life mi g” to which Kartel replied “Respec Breda! Ntn close to a ghost”.

Reggae act Jesse Royal wrote, “Blessings Health Wealth Prosperity and favor!!! Gratitude fi all the Lessons Lionheart!!!! #RichForever”.
