King Stitt is dead-

LEGENDARY Jamaican vocalist King Stitt is dead. King Stitt, whose real name is Winston Sparkes, passed away at his home in Nannyville, Kingston minutes after 1 this afternoon. He had been ailing for some time.

King Stitt can be described as one of the pioneers of the deejay idiom as his voice was a regular feature in the late 1960s over Sir Coxsone Dodd's Downbeat Sound System during the infancy of the now famous Reggae music.
