The death of Sherwin ‘Drizzy’ Charlemagne has ‘saddened’ Prime Minister Philip J. Pierre, who described the demise of the 23-year-old as untimely.
“This morning I learnt of the untimely death of Sherwin ‘Drizzy’ Charlemagne, a tragedy to his family and friends, who are also my friends and constituents,” the Castries East MP wrote on Facebook on Friday.
“Many of you would have known Drizzy as one of the artistes behind the song ‘Clap for Your Birthday/Happy Birthday,’ which I last sang to celebrate a colleague at the recently concluded CARICOM Heads of Government in February,” Pierre stated.
“I am saddened that you won’t get to participate in the Youth Economy. You supported its vision from my days as Opposition Leader,” the Prime Minister observed.
Rock Hall, Castries resident ‘Drizzy’ died, and a female believed to be in her late teens was in stable condition after a vehicle accident at Choc in the wee hours of Friday morning.
The deceased was the driver of the vehicle.
According to reports, a grey Mitsubishi overturned after slamming into a utility pole at about 1:50 am.
