KINGSTON, Jamaica -- Minister of Youth and Culture, Lisa Hanna, has lauded former Third World lead singer William ‘Bunny Rugs’ Clarke a true “reggae ambassador”.
“I am sad that Bunny Rugs has passed away and we will no longer be able to go to a venue to watch him perform with his beloved Third World. However, I am grateful and proud of his contribution to music. He was a true Reggae Ambassador who, along with the rest of Third World, brought Jamaica’s music to the world,” Hanna said in a tribute Monday morning
“Bunny Rugs’ voice was distinct. He had a charisma and stage presence that were spell-binding, with a smile that was vibrant.”
“I personally will never forget him singing ‘Try Jah Love’ and ’96 Degrees in the Shade’.
“Today, I offer condolences to Bunny Rugs’ family including his musical brothers in Third World,” Hanna said.
Reggae Ambassador is one of Third World’s hits with Bunny Rugs on lead.
Bunny Rugs passed away at home in Orlando, Florida Sunday night after a battle with Leukemia.
