Vybz Kartel Will Release Skin Lightening Products

Dancehall Reggae Artist, Vybz Kartel revealed he is going ahead with his plans to release a cosmetics line for men, which controversially includes a number of skin lightening items. Kartel has been in the news as he has been charged with the murder of a promoter. The case is still on-going and you can read more about that (here). 
When it comes to this 'bleach' skin product, Vybz defended his products in a statement earlier this year to Vibe:

"When Black women stop straightening their hair and wearing wigs and weaves, when white women stop getting lip and butt injections and implants, when bald men stop getting hair hair transplants, and stop getting nose jobs and cosmetic surgery, then I'll stop using, 'Cakesoap' and we'll all live naturally after that. Until then f*ck you all." 

Do you think this product will sell off the shelves? Many people are expecting this product to fly off the shelves in certain areas of the Caribbean and African Countries. Only thing I can say is, I hope not.
