Sugar Minott passed away

By Max-Him on Sunday, July 11, 2010 - 13 comments

The godfather of dancehall died yesterday in Jamaica aged 54.


The rumour has been circulating on the internet for a few hours, but now it looks like Sugar Minott's death has been confirmed. The Jamaican singer had been suffering from heart disease for quite some time.

Sugar Minott had a great career that began with the group African Brothers then solo recording his first album for Coxsone Dodd at Studio One. He also played a big role in the career of artists such as Junior Reid, Tristan Palmer, Tony Tuff, Yami Bolo, Garnett Silk and many more with his musical school Youth Promotion. RIP.

Sugar Minott helped me through many bad days in my life. His lovely voice, singing uplifting lyrics, always helped me to see the light and made me smile again. I miss you terribly. Man has a thousand plans, heaven but one.~ Chinese Proverb
