Kartel, whose real name is Adidja Palmer was granted bail in the sum of $500,000 with sureties.
He is facing the charge of perverting the course of justice.
As a condition of his bail, Kartel is to report to the Constant Spring police station daily until January 25, when he is again scheduled to appear in court.
He has also been instructed to surrender his travel documents and a stop order placed on him.
The bail application was made by his attorney Christian Taveres-Finson.
However, the entertainer is unable to take up bail as he is also at the centre of two murder cases.
Kartel, is jointly charged with associate Andre Henry alias ‘Pim Pim’ and fellow entertainer Vanessa Saddler, more popularly known as Gaza Slim.
Bail was also extended for Henry and Saddler when they appeared in the Corporate Area Resident Magistrate’s Court this morning.
It is alleged that Kartel and his co-accused were a part of a plot to undermine a police investigation into the murder of Clive 'Lizard' Williams.
Kartel and four other men are before the Home Circuit Court on a charge of murder in relation to the death of Williams.
