Family and friends of the late dancehall artiste J Capri gathered last Saturday night to reflect on the life and time of the young woman whose stay on earth cut short following a motor vehicle crash last year.
Held at Spades Night Club on Phoenix Avenue, St Andrew, the memorial party was meant to gather J Capri’s fans and supporters. A handful of familiar faces showed up but the event did not attract the crowd that Oradell ‘Debbie’ Carwin, J Capri’s mother was hoping for.
Radio personality Nikki Z, dancer and singer Mystic Davis and young dancehall star, Jahmiel were among those in attendance.
“I miss her, I just miss her,” Jahmiel told THE STAR.
“She believe inna mi before the world believe inna mi,” he added.
J Capri, whose real name is Jordan Phillips, died last December after her Mercedes motorcar crashed into a wall leaving her unconscious. She was rushed to the University Hospital of the West Indies and underwent surgery after suffering a fractured skull and damage to her brain. She never recovered.
Debbie told THE STAR that the fact that was a busy weekend may have impacted turn-out.
“I was hoping for more of her fans, more artistes,” Debbie told THE STAR.
