Mighty Diamonds member Fitzroy “Bunny” Simpson has died in the same week that the iconic reggae group suffered the loss of Donald “Tabby” Shaw.

Simpson died from complications associated with diabetes on Friday (1 April). He was 71.

Jamaican culture minister Olivia “Babsy” Grange in a statement posted on Twitter on Saturday (2 April) wrote that it was “devastating” to lose two Mighty Diamonds members in the same week.

According to the statement, Simpson was taken to the National Chest Hospital for a check-up on Friday, “was admitted, and died later” at the hospital. The singer was recovering from Covid-19 at the time of his death. He had previously suffered a stroke in 2015.
