Dancehall legend Bounty Killer has shared emotional farewell words to his close friend-dancehall deejay, Boom Dandimite, who passed away last Sunday while traveling to the USA for further medical attention.

In a post published by the Poor People's Governor on his Instagram page, he captioned: “Thanks for all your lessons, it’s such a blessings bro. we appreciated all you had done throughout this lifetime. you left a remarkable mark. it's ruff times for us all not having you around, things just won’t be the same. your vibes, your spirit, your energy is unmatched bredda".

Also, the BoomBox Fridayz weekly event, run by veteran artistes Harry Toddler and General B, will dedicate their event to the memory of Boom Dandimite on Friday, May 26.

The Veteran deejay whose real name is Donovan Herman Stewart played a big role in Bounty Killer’s journey. He was the one who took him to the studio the very first time and introduced him to King Jammy’s. Day after day, month after month, the crew would make that journey up to the St Lucia Road recording studio, awaiting the chance to jump on the next riddim being formulated in the Jammy's sound lab.

Both DJs were born in the same community of Seaview Gardens in Kingston. Boom Dandimite was a former member of the Scare Dem Crew alongside Elephant Man, Harry Toddler, and Nitty Kuchie. He was supposed to take part in the BoomBox 90's badness segment at the upcoming reggae Sumfest on July 21.

Dandimite succumbed to injuries from a recent car accident he was involved in alongside upcoming artiste; Willful Skillful, was also injured in the accident.
