Sugar Minott, dead at 54

Tuesday, July 13, 2010

Veteran singer, songwriter and producer Sugar Minott is dead.
Minott who was ailing for sometime died on July 10th at the University Hospital of the West Indies in St. Andrew. According to Peter Burke, a close associate of the singer, Sugar Minott had complained of feeling ill on Saturday and was taken to the hospital where he died at minutes after 10pm. It's reported that the singer had a heart condition and about a year and a half ago he got the first scare in Canada.
Sugar Minott, who was born Lincoln Barrington Minott on May 25, 1956, earned for himself the moniker Godfather of Dancehall. He is credited with being the pioneer, who, by laying vocal tracks over the original tapes from the '60's, rather than using a live band as was the norm in those days caused a revolution in the sound that brought a new style to Reggae music known as dancehall. Sugar Minott is well known for recording numerous hit songs such as Mr. DC, Vanity, Herbsman Hustling, Hang On Natty, Stop Fight Rasta and Ready Or Not.
Culture Minister, Olivia Grange has paid tribute to Sugar Minott.
Ms Grange said Sugar Minott was a talented singer, songwriter, musician, performer and producer who played an important role in popularising Jamaicas music across the world.
According to Ms Grange, Sugar Minott followed in the footsteps of the pioneers of Reggae, producing great music and helping younger artistes to make their mark.
A prolific songwriter and singer, Sugar Minott has over 60 albums.
