Xterminator producer Philip ‘Fattis’ Burrell is dead

PHILIP 'Fattis' Burrell, CEO of Xterminator Records, has died.

Fattis, as he was called by most persons in the music business, made his transition last evening after slipping into a coma early that morning. 

The producer and artiste manager had been a patient at the University Hospital of the West Indies (UHWI) Mona, where he was admitted two weeks ago after suffering a mild stroke.

Burrell took a turn for the worse last Tuesday when doctors discovered a blood clot near to his lungs.

The family of Philip 'Fattis' Burrell wishes to thank friends, well-wishers and the staff at the UHWI for their care and support and asks for prayers at this time.

At the time of his death, Fattis was the manager for reggae artiste, Sizzla. He has played a major role in establishing the careers of Sizzla Kalonji, Luciano, Pinchers, Thriller U and Sanchez on an international level.

Fattis has also worked with several of reggae's greatest artistes including Beres Hammond, Frankie Paul, Gregory Isaacs, Charlie Chaplin, Capelton, Cocoa Tea, Gentleman and Ini Kamoze.
