BUNNY DIAMOND AND TAPPA ZUKIE ARE RECOVERING AFTER MAJOR HEALTH SCARES!

 Bunny Diamond—

DEEJAY Tappa Zukie and singer Bunny Diamond of the Mighty Diamonds are recovering in hospital after major health scares last week.

Daniel Sinclair, Tappa Zukie’s son, told the Jamaica Observer that his father suffered a “diabetic episode” at home on October 27.

He was rushed to the University Hospital of the West Indies where he is still a patient.

Sinclair denied rumours that his father went into a coma. He said he became disoriented, began vomiting blood and was unresponsive after being admitted to hospital.

Yesterday, Sinclair said the veteran toaster spoke to him.

“He’s doing much better, he’s out of the danger zone.”

Tappa Zukie (real name David Sinclair) is best known for songs like MPLA, Oh Lord and Natty Dread a Weh She Want (with Horace Andy).

Fitzroy ‘Bunny Diamond’ Simpson suffered a minor stroke on October 26 while driving in Kingston, his wife Sylvia, told the Observer.

The 64-year-old singer did a Cat Scan last week and an MRI on Monday, Sylvia Simpson said.

She said doctors have told him to rest, which means he will likely miss the Diamonds’ gig at the November 12-15 Rasta Rootzfest/Cannabis Cup in Negril.

Formed in 1969, the Diamonds is one of reggae’s great groups. Africa, Right Time, Have Mercy, I Need A Roof and Pass The Kutchie are some of their many hit songs.
