Singer Lil’ Joe son of Patsy Rickets dead at 25


Up and coming cultural artiste, Lil' Joe died at the University Hospital of The West Indies in St Andrew yesterday.
Reports are that Lil' Joe performed in Wickie Wackie, St Thomas on Sunday night and was rushed to hospital yesterday where he died from what is said to have been a ruptured blood vessel.
The 25-year-old artiste was born Alty Nunes and is the son of former National Dance Theatre Company principal dancer and renowned tutor, Patsy Ricketts.
One of the producers with whom he worked, Gussie Clarke, described the artiste's passing as a great loss. "He was one of the most talented youths I have come across in a long time, he was multi-talented. He had such a great work ethic, and was set to become one of the stars of the future. So it is a great loss for the music and for us who around him," Clarke said.
Lil' Joe's on-line biography notes that he began his musical training at an early age with celebrated tutors, Curtis Watson, Marjorie Whylie and Karl 'Simba' Messado. It further adds that as a youngster he formed a group called Jah Children and toured Europe in the mid-90s. This group had to be shelved as the members concentrated on academic pursuits.
