Reggae artist Wayne Smith has died at 48-years-old.
The Jamaican musician, responsible for ‘Under Mi Sleng Teng’, dubbed as the first computerised riddim in Jamaican music, was admitted to Kingston Public Hospital on Friday after complaining of stomach pains.
Although his health was said to have improved on Sunday, he passed away on Monday. An autopsy has been arranged to determine the cause of death.
‘Under Mi Sleng Teng’ was released in 1985 on King Jammy’s Jammy’s Records after Smith discovered the revolutionary riddim on Noel Davey’s Casio MT-40 keyboard.
