Prince Buster, a pioneer of ska who influenced bands such as Madness and The Specials, has died at the age of 78.
Buster, who was born in Kingston as Cecil Bustamante Campbell, passed away at him home in Miami on Thursday.
Tributes poured in for the singer-songwriter-producer, who rose to fame in his homeland Jamaica in the 1960s.
“It is with great sadness that I have just learned of the death of Jamaica’s music icon and pioneer, Prince Buster. A true music legend,” reggae and dancehall DJ David Rodigan wrote on Twitter.
