The Honourable Olivia “Babsy” Grange, Minister of Information Culture Youth and Sports has expressed her sympathy to Anthony Fairclough, otherwise known as “Michigan” of the DJ duo, “Michigan and Smiley”, and to his brother Wayne, football coach of Kingston College and former coach of Waterhouse Football Club, following the death of four their relatives in the recent airplane disaster in Buffalo, New York in the United States.
In a telephone conversation with Michigan, Minister Grange whose Ministry also has responsibility for music and entertainment, told the DJ that she was deeply saddened that he had lost four of his cousins who were en route to Canada when the plane crashed in Buffalo four days ago.
In the crash from which there were no survivors, Michigan and Wayne lost cousins: 24 year-old Danny Massop; 41-year-old Dawn Massop; 13-year-old Shawn Massop and 20-year-old Ferris Reid.
Danny was married to Dawn and Shawn was their son while Ferris Reid was sister to Dawn.
Minister Grange said to Michigan that she was saying a prayer for special strength for him and for Wayne, especially since another of their relatives, an aunt, had passed as well.
“Grieve you must over these tragic circumstances,” Minister Grange said, “but I am confident that your best life is still to come.”
Miss Grange told Michigan that the music industry missed him and that she was looking forward to his presence once again on the entertainment scene.
