The music world has been thrown into mourning after the news of the death of a reggae music icon Bunny Wailer.
The Jamaican whose real name is Neville O'Riley Livingston leaved from 10 April, 1947 to 2 March, 2021. He was 73 years old.
Wailer was the one who formed the reggae group "The Wailers" alongside his Half brother - the legendary Bob Marley and his friend Peter Tosh in 1963. The group also had two short-term members, Junior Braithwaite and Beverley Kelso.
Ten years later in 1973, Bunny subsequently left the group and pursued a solo career.
Wailer had come under the wrong side of the law when he was arrested and charged for possessing cannabis in June 1967 as he went on to serve a 14 month prison term.
He has won the Grammy Award on three occasions: In 1991 for Best Reggae Album Time Will Tell: A Tribute to Bob Marley. He also won the award in 1995 for Crucial! Roots Classics. Then in 1997 for Hall of Fame: A Tribute to Bob Marley's 50th Anniversary.
He also has other awards and honor to his name: he was given the Order of Merit by the Jamaican government in 2017. He also received a Pinnacle Award in New York from the Coalition to Preserve Reggae in 2019.
