The Bacardi musician’s brother adds that he doesn’t know why his grave was vandalised and he suspects some rituals were done.

“I found a lot of things there and I don’t know what was going on. I don’t know if some rituals were done there or what,” added his brother.

He said he doesn’t know who is responsible for the damage, he’s disappointed by what happened and doesn’t have answers. “I am disappointed by what happened. I don’t have answers and I am still asking myself a lot of questions,” he said.

The DJ adds that the family is still coming to terms with his death, they’re not coping and live in fear after people damaged his grave.

“They have taken my brother and it’s not easy to accept. We have to move on with life, but how will we live if they do something like this. If these people can do something like this, what will happen next? We are fearing for their lives.”
