WATCH: Thanksgiving service for Gully Bop underway
The thanksgiving service for the late dancehall artiste Gully Bop is now underway at the Ranny Williams Entertainment Centre on Hope Road in Kingston.
Scores of people turned out to celebrate the life of Gully Bop, whose hit ‘My God Dem Nuh Bad Like Me’ was being played over speakers attached to the top of the hearse when his body arrived at the venue.
The artiste, real name Robert Lee Malcolm, could be seen peacefully at rest in a glass covered casket, dressed in a red suit and holding a microphone.
Last October, Gully Bop’s death was confirmed by his pastor, Chris Tate, of El’Shaddai Prophetic Ministries, who had told Observer Online that the entertainer passed away at the Kingston Public Hospital.
He was said to have been suffering from a kidney disease and was admitted to the hospital where he had been receiving treatment.
According to an announcement on Instagram by the late artiste’s manager, Gully Bop will be interred at his family’s plot in Lawrence Tavern, Kingston.
