Pot of Gold recording dancehall reggae artiste Copper Cat was shot and kill in Kingston, Jamaica on Thursday January 20, 2011.


Reports are that he was killed for his cell phone.

Copper cat broke on to the scene in the mid 1990s with the help of his mentor Richie Stephens, the founder of Pot of Gold record label.

At eight years old Demar Graham aka Copper Cat had a winsome personality, a love of deejaying and a desire to make it into the business.

Still he never saw this dream coming through until he met the man who would change the course of his life and become his mentor.

The chance encounter took place while Riche Stephens was shooting the video for his hit song Winner Copper Cat who was on the scene ‘auditioned’ for Stephens who was totally amazed by the youngster’s ability to deejay.

Stephens who saw the potential in Copper Cat, and know the opportunities that could be afforded to him in Kingston sought the permission of Copper Cat’s uncle who incidentally was named Richie also to fully take Copper Cat under his wings.

An over the moon Copper Cat became a part of Richie Stephens family living with him in Kingston.

Stephens shortly after penned the song Stay In School for him and Copper Cat created quite an impact with it as it enjoyed heavy rotation on all the major radio stations and proved to be a good motivating songs for other youngsters.

Copper Cat also got the chance to showcase his talent as Stephens brought him on most shows he was booked on.

He was not short on songs to perform as Stephens who is an outstanding songwriter kept penning new materials for him such as Wise Up, Bend Di Tree and Run Di Version giving the youth the chance to establish himself as an artiste and promoting positive and conscious songs.

With a hit song and getting the opportunity to perform on top shows most artistes would opt to focus fully on music, but Copper Cat’s mentor would have none of that.

He encouraged Copper Cat to focus on his school work and so music took a back seat while Cat passed his GSAT from Stella Maris and went on to Jamaica College where he successfully sat his CXCs and CAPE exams.

While a student at JC Copper Cat was very active in the extra curricular actives He was the president of the Student Council 2006-2007 and also a member of the Jamaica College Manning Cup team.

Now that he has graduated, Copper Cat feels it is now time he gives some attention to his first love – music.

He recently released a single entitled Meck It Stay a combination with an artiste by the name of Atomic with plans in the pipeline for others to follow Looking ahead…the sky is the limit where this talented bright young man is concerned.

He will certainly be missed..condolences to his family.
