Reggae Music's Icon Toots Hibbert is Dead

Reggae music's legend Toots Hibbert is dead. Toots died on Friday, September 11, 2020, at the University Hospital of the West Indies in Kingston, Jamaica.

Toots and his band Toots and the Maytals which was formed in the 1960s helped popularise the reggae music genre.

The group’s 1968 single Do The Reggay was the first song to use the word “reggae” naming the genre and introducing it to a global audience.

The group’s popular songs include Monkey Man, Sweet And Dandy, Bam Bam, and Pomps And Pride.

Before his passing, the reggae icon was admitted to the hospital and placed into a medically induced coma.

The Jamaican cultural icon recently participated in the island’s annual Festival Song competition which he won three times.

He and his band won the Grammy Award for best reggae album in 2005. In 2012, Toots Hibbert was awarded an Order of Distinction for his contribution to Jamaica’s music.

On August 28, Toots Hibbert released his last album ‘Got To Be Tough.’
