Former DJ Captain Barkey killed in NY
KINGSTON, Jamaica - Captain Barkey, who teamed with deejay partner Wickerman on the 1996 hit song Go Go Wine, is dead.
The burly ex-soldier's bullet-riddled body was found by police in a car outside a motel in the Bronx, New York early Saturday morning, the Jamaica Observer has learned
A 38 year-old woman was also in the vehicle, police reported. She was also shot multiple times.
They were pronounced dead at the scene.
A former manager of the entertainer, Ralston Barrett, said that he last spoke to Captain Barkey Friday night and since hearing the report, has not been able to make contact with him.
“BB messages to Barkey have all gone unanswered,” Barrett told the Observer Saturday.
Captain Barkey (real name Wayne Hamilton) was a veteran of the sound system circuit. He and Wickerman had a few minor hits before topping local charts 16 years ago with Go Go Wine.
