Facebook One point Likkle Addi declined from speaking on was becoming a father at the age of 15. The duo also released their debut 10-track EP Skinny Jean in 2020 and has since followed up with features on this year’s project Dancehall Royalty. The Adidjahiem Record Label had helped to mold the careers of members of the now-defunct Portmore Empire. His older brother Likkle Vybz is also pursuing courses in business, though his place of education has not been confirmed. He told Windord, “It’s only a matter of time before everything falls into place.”
Both Likke Addi and Likkle Vybz have been pursuing music from a very young age. The teenage dancehall star explained that he’s no longer attending Jamaica College but is currently in 4th form at an unnamed institution where he is looking to secure a passing grade in a trio of business subjects. The young deejay boasted about his pen-game, as he explains that he wrote his verse for the track. He and his older brother will be spearheading the day-to-day activities of the label, including scouting and screening new talents, production, distribution, and marketing. Both Likkle Addi and Vybz Kartel feature on the standout track “Popular”, which has already raked in over 800,000 views on Youtube since the release of the video a week ago. Among the artists who were part of the group include Popcaan, Tommy Lee Sparta, Blak Ryno, Jah Vinci, Vanessa Bling, Sheba, Shawn Storm, Lisa Hyper, and Dosa Medicine. Vybz Kartel put his confidence in his sons to protect and build on his legacy and so you will see them become the face of his label. Vybz Kartel’s son Akheel Raheim Palmer, better known by the name Likkle Addi, joined host Winfred Williams for an Onstage interview where he discussed school, music, and business. On the matter of the daily operations of Adidjahiem Records, the “Dollar Sign” deejay said that his younger brother, World Boss Jr (Aiko Palmer), would handle production. Addi is keen on taking both his personal career and the label to “universal” heights, with hopes of his music reaching dancehall fans worldwide. “Every song that you see me put out that’s me Likkle Addi,” he said while revealing that he writes every day. The boys won’t assume control of the label until the next two years when Likkle Addi turns 18. In 2014 they released “Hero,” and “PG Love.” That was followed up with “Great Adventure” and their smash hit “Radio.” Over the last couple of years, the boys have landed collaborations with their father on albums such as To Tanesha and Of Dons & Divas were both released last year. It’s no surprise that their studies are all a part of a strategic move that will see both boys taking the helm of the Adidjahiem Records label started by dad Vybz Kartel.
