Jimmy Riley, dead at 68.

Reggae crooner, Tarrus Riley’s Instagram status yesterday read, “F*CK CANCER”. It was indication enough that something had happened. The artiste’s 68 year old father, Jimmy Riley who’s musical hits included, “Love & Devotion”, “Rougher Yet”, “My Woman’s Love”, and “Black Mother’s Prayer”, had succumbed to his battle with the illness.  

Jamaican Grammy Award winners, Morgan Heritage today posted the the sentiment on their Instagram page, saying, “We have cancer so much we have so many friends and family to this disease JAH know see and know strength and power to our brother @tarrusrileyja be strong Jimmy Riley your spirit lives on what a voice so unique”. 

Earlier this afternoon, Trinidad and Tobago soca artiste, Machel Montano posted a video teaser on his Instagram page, signaling that the video for his collaborative single with Riley, ‘Memory’, would be released tomorrow. It would seem a fitting sentiment, the elder Riley having played a major role in his son’s career and by all means, creating a lot of memories over the years.

Machel Montano’s proving to be a stand up guy. You know how some companies hate giving refunds?…well, seems like the Monk and his cohorts at Tribe Carnival, understanding of the current climate, and the global economic effects of the Covid-19 pandemic, are extending an olive branch to fetters.

In a YouTube message posted last week, Machel is heard explaining why the inaugural Melee cruise, which was originally carded to sail in May 2021, has been pushed back.

He said plans are still ongoing, but explained that for those who have been strongly impacted by the Covid-19 pandemic, forcing them to reconsider sailing with the Melee family, refunds would be afforded.
