The outpouring of love for the man many felt had a truly unique persona in the business of Calypso, has been incredible. Fellow Soca artiste, Dexter ‘Blaxx’ Stewart, who is one of the frontline vocalists of the All Starz Band, said he idolized Shadow, adding, “For me, Shadow was the model image of sound, trend and talent to always watch. I used to call him Uncle, he called me Nephew.”

Blaxx said  “Poverty Is Hell” was his favorite song from Shadow’s catalogue of music, explaining that the song was real, relevant  and a true classic. On Shadow’s  personality, Blaxx said the artiste loved ole talk, jokes and he loved being around the people that he cared about.

“He was a brilliant musician, and I want to send condolences to family, friends and the industry; he served his community, his culture, his country and the Caribbean well. Let’s give our artistes their flowers while they are here. He gave the best of himself to better our culture, and his music will live on forever.” – Blaxx
