Dancehall Artiste / Entertainer, Food Kartel is Dead!


Dancehall artiste Courtney 'Food Kartel' Broughton is dead. He died on Wednesday night, only a few days after it as suspected that he had suffered a stroke.


"I will always remember Food Kartel as a man who loved music, he was a great live performer, and an encouraging individual. He was a real vibes man, happy no matter what was going through in his life.

He would always find a way to hustle a money so that he and his fellow artistes could do road and promote our songs. It is tragic that he died so young," fellow artiste Macka Diamond said. Food Kartel is survived by nine children.

The comedian-artiste is known for creating spoofs of popular dancehall songs to create lyrics based on food and articulating culinary delights. Stage show patrons will remember classics like Kitchen Hero, Cook It Inna, Dumpling Tight, Brown Stew Fish and Hot Rice.

The artiste's career was marred due to legal troubles in 2011 when he was accused of carnal abuse. The case was eventually thrown out.
