Soca artist Blaxx’s death news has been confirmed by his family.
Dexter John Stewart aka Blaxx, was born on December 21st. He began his musical journey when he was thirteen years old, when his father Jerry Stewart, who founded the band “Jerry and New School,” shaped him into the person he is today.
He then joined the popular band “Fucceccion,” where he was known as “Blaxx” for eleven years. After that, he joined a number of other bands, including “Atlantic,” “Byron Lee and the Dragons,” and “Blue Ventures.”
Mr. Roy Cape, the icon himself, met Blaxx in 1999 and invited him to join his family of artists (Roy Cape All Stars). Mr. Blaxx graciously accepted the position, and the rest is history.
