On Friday May 25 Dancehall singer Sugar Minott would have celebrated his 56th birthday.

Members of the music industry and fans of the late singer all gathered at his Youthman Promotion studio, located on Robert Crescent in Kingston, to join in the celebration of his Earth Strong. The venue was packed to capacity with both local fans and a strong contingent of Japanese supporters. It is often said that Sugar Minott was one of the first persons to take Reggae music to Japan.

The celebration lasted until the wee hours of Saturday morning with music being provided by Fire Links and Black Pepper, Errol Dunkley's sound system. Among the highlights of the night was the performance of Little John, Beenie Man, Beres Hammond, Sizzla & Mikey General who appeared on stage simultaneously. Among the other performers were Tony Rebel, Pashon, Errol Dunkley and several more. The event demonstrated that Sugar Minott's music is still strong and he is far from being forgotten.

The man with the sweetest voice will miss us for ever. Such a warm-hearted person is a real lack for humanity. When I think of him I believe in human race. So rare nowadays.
