Dancehall artiste Don Yute is mourning the death of his brother, David ‘Wormy’ Williams.
Williams died Friday after complaining of chest pains and going to the hospital on Thursday night. His relatives suspect that he died as a result of a heart attack. He was 48 years old.
“Everybody say he was chilling and laughing with his friends last night and at the end of the night, he complained of chest pains. He said he wanted to go home to lie down but his friends insisted on carrying him to the hospital because that was unlike him,” Don Yute told Loop News reporter Claude Mills.
“This morning, I got the call from my mother that he didn’t make it. And I just kinda knew it, when I heard he was in the hospital last night, I said ‘ah it this’ because Wormy no sicky sicky. hospital anno fi him thing dat. Right now, I am concerned for my mother, I have to go look for her in North Carolina ’cause she sound messed up.”
Don Yute earlier took to social media network Facebook to inform fans of his brother’s passing. He wrote: “My brother David wormy died today guys big up bro love u forever.”
Williams represented Wolmer’s Boys’ high school at the Colts level in football and was a talented lawn tennis and table tennis athlete.
Don Yute, whose real name is Jason Williams, gained prominence in the 1990s. He roared onto the dancehall scene with the hit single single for Dave Kelly on the Pepperseed rhythm called ‘Loving Excess’, a collaboration with Wayne Wonder in 1993 that is still popular today.
