Beenie Man confirmed with Jamaican online media, Urban Islandz, that his grandmother Ms. Doris Ferguson Stewart, affectionately known as ‘Dar Dar’, passed away at age 91, at her home in St. Elizabeth. Beenie, who was very close to his grandmother, says he is saddened by her passing because she means the world to him.

Beenie Man has been very busy since the start of the year, touring and recording new music. Just last week he shot the video for his “Lifestyle” single in Kingston. Since the passing of his grandmother, the “Girl Dem Sugar” deejay has trimmed down his schedule significantly, as his family mourns the passing of their relative. He is also asking fans and the media to respect his privacy at this time.

R.I.P. Ms. Doris!
