Reggae Singer Madoo is dead

SINGER Osbert 'Madoo' Maddo, who had big hits in the early 1980s with Jamming So and Coming From Town, died Sunday in the United States.

His brother, singer Hugh 'UU' Maddo, said he died at age 56 at his home in Bangor, Maine.

He did not give a cause of death but said Madoo had a history of heart problems.

Born in Dalvey, St Thomas, Maddo attended Excelsior High School and cut his musical teeth on East Kingston sound systems like Arrows International and Stereophonic.

He eventually recorded Jamming So and Coming From Town for producers Joe Gibbs and Winston Riley, respectively.

Maddo, who migrated to the United States in 1982, also had hits with Joe Grine and Landlord.

Osbert 'Madoo' Maddo is survived by his wife Janet, three children, two grandchildren, five brothers and five sisters.
