Reggae icon Frankie Paul has died. The veteran singer passed away on Thursday (May 18, 2017) night at the University Hospital of West Indies (UHWI).

Frankie Paul’s sister, Trish Clarke, confirmed his death via Facebook and told his fans that the singer was battling a kidney problem for a while. At the time of his death he was getting dialysis treatment at the hospital two days per week. Several of his friends including singer/producer Wayne Lonesome were helping him with his massive hospital bill which was to the tune of $1.5 million. Last month his condition got worst and was admitted to the UHWI hospital where he died last night.

“He will be sadly missed by us, his friends, his colleagues in the music business, his faimily and thousands of fans around the world who loved his music,” singer Lonesome said. Frankie Paul was a staple in reggae music in the 1970s, 80s and early 90s. In 1994 He moved to Gambia in Africa where he reside for a number of years before returning to Jamaica. Frankie Paul is best known for hits like “I Know The Score,” “Pass The Tu-Sheng Peng,” “Paul Sara,” “Worries In The Dance,” and “Casanova.”
