Jamaican superstar VybzKartel reportedly got engaged before the end of summer to Sidem Ozturk.

He reportedly got engaged before the end of summer of 2022 as they began speaking in 2015. Years later in 2019, they finally had a face to face meeting during a jailhouse visit in 2019. She worked as a social worker in London before moving to Kingston, Jamaica to be close to her future hubby.

He has been in jail since 2011 for the murder of an associate named Clive ‘Lizard’ Williams, along with his co-accused fellow artiste Shawn Storm, and two others, Kahira Jones and Andre St. John. Since Kartel’s conviction in 2014, the deejay has maintained his innocence.

The iconic dancehall artist’s fiancee says being married to Kartel is a “dream come true,” according to FOX 5 News.  When asked about the difficulties being married to an incarcerated person she said, “obviously I can’t see him every time I want to see him or I can’t talk to him every time I want to talk to him, but when you know what you want, and you know where your heart is at, It’s not that difficult, so I’m willing to wait.” She also added, “it’s not perfect but we’re making the most out of what we can.”

Vybz Kartel is likely to learn whether or not he will be a free man by the end of 2022.

Last month, Kartel dedicated his upcoming EP, True Religion to Ozturk and shared new photos of her visiting him at the Horizon Adult Remand Centre in Kingston.

The EP was released today, September 30.

Despite the challenges that the couple face due to Kartel’s status as an inmate Ozturk is not discouraged. “Of course it does cause some difficulties, I can’t see him when I want to see him or I can’t talk to him when I want to talk to him but when you know what you want and where your heart is it is not that difficult. So, I am willing to wait,” she said.
