The Dancehall fraternity once again mourns the death of a relative for a prominent Dancehall artiste as the father of iconic deejay, Beenie Man has passed away.
Beenie's Dad, more affectionately known as Bragga, died on Wednesday night at the University Hospital of the West Indies in Kingston while receiving treatment for an undisclosed health complaint. Reportedly, the news came as a complete shock to Beenie Man as well as his long-time manager and brother, Rohan 'Blue' Smith and are said to be very sad as they cope with their loss.
Beenie Man's ex-wife, D'Angel immediately visited the hospital and offered her condolences upon hearing the news, insisting that Beenie should remain strong and keep his head up in this time of grief. According to the singjay, Bragga was a very fun person to hang around.
When the news broke on Wednesday night, several Jamaican music personalities have offered their condolences, most notably, Bounty Killer, who had lost his mother, Ivy 'Miss Ivy' Williams to illness in February and was supported by Beenie Man at a nine night in her honor.
Bounty Killer tweeted, "Not so sure about this just got it ppl, Beenie Man father just died at University Hospital. Condolence goes out."
