Kingston, January 25, 2010 - The Minister of Youth, Sports and Culture, the Honourable Olivia Grange, MP has expressed deep regret at the death of 22-year-old upcoming Reggae artiste, Copper Cat.
Reacting to news of the passing of Copper Cat, whose real name was Demar Graham, Minister Grange said:
“I was shaken when I heard the news. Demar was from all accounts a decent young man who showed such promise as an entertainer. I share the deep sadness of his family – especially Richie Stephens who had taken Demar under his care – his friends and the wider entertainment fraternity.
“As we mourn his passing I call on all Jamaicans to resolve to do what we can to stop the violence that is robbing us of our young people.”
