Born in Chapelton, Clarendon, Edi Fitzroy was perhaps best known for the hit, Princess Black, done in celebration of the black female.

In reacting to the news of the death, the Culture and Entertainment Minister Olivia 'Babsy' Grange said Edwards will be remembered for his very disctinctive style.

"Whether he was extolling the virtues of his 'Princess Black' or warning young people against 'Prison Life' he was a one of a kind who will be missed," said Grange.

The minister, who today laid to rest her mother in Toronto, Canada, also extended condolences to Edwards' family.
