Brawl at Prince Buster funeral

Brawl at Prince Buster funeral

On Saturday ska singer Cecil ‘Prince Buster’ Campbell was laid to rest at the May Pen Cemetery following a short funeral service at the Islamic Council of Jamaica.

However, the day was not without its drama. Following the brief service Campbell’s two sons had a little spat about where their father’s final resting place should be.

The Prince Buster had apparently made the request where he wanted to be buried before he died and one son wanted to ensure the desire was carried out.

During the verbal clash, the entertainer’s son, Saladin Ali, was heard saying that his father made the request when he was extremely ill and was not thinking straight.

“It was my father’s wish to be buried here and we had to honour it. We granted his wish and purchased two plots for him and my mother. Others wanted him to be buried at Dovecot or National Heroes Park, but he came here in 2014 in a wheelchair and requested that his remains be buried in West Kingston. How could we not respect his wishes?” he was quoted as saying.
