Along with a host of loving relatives/friends/and fans worldwide.
Because Mikey loved and believed in his fans so very much, we are setting up a Mikey Dread Tribute page on the – More Fyah Productions website. It remains our resolve to respect Mikey’s wishes that you – Mikey Dread fans are taken care of and will provide a space for you all to come together as one and give tribute and respect to the Rastaman we all loved.
Mikey is no longer with us in body, but remains; in our hearts and our minds always through his vast collection of music his spirit will always live on.
Through this ordeal, Mikey remained upbeat, he lived his life to the fullest, was loved by many and in the end was surrounded in Love and was cared for by his sister, wife, nieces, nephews and brothers in Connecticut.
