The one half of Soul Fresh James Williams Alias J.B joins Liberians across the globe who have made heartfelt tribute to fallen Liberian musical star, Quincy L. Borrow aka Quincy B.
Qunicy B died in a tragic car accident at about 4:00 am Friday, March 3, 2017, on his way from KARAOKE Night, a local entertainment center in Monrovia.
The young singer, writer and Engineer was pulled out of his damaged vehicle and rushed to the JFK hospital, where he was pronounced dead.
He was a Student of the African United Methodist University.
The famous Hipco rappers described the death of the 23 year old celebrity is a “big blow” to Liberian entertainment industry”.
“We worked together on several projects including ‘Your Grace’ and the latest song we did in 2017 is about the ongoing Voter’s Registration.
“Every artist that worked with him knew exactly who he is when it comes to producing quality music.
“He is not just an artist, but a producer who do everything to make the music sound better,” JB said.
J.B later busted in tears saying, “Quincy B remains an irreplaceable artist.
“Up to present, I can’t still believe that Quincy B is a dead man.
“He is dead and gone but his music and lyrics will continue to live on, especially in the hearts of every Liberians.
“I am thinking of what to do next because, I’m not in my right state of mind right now.
“Notwithstanding, we have to do a tribute song to remember our falling Liberian musical legend,” So-Fresh No Star General added.
J.B concluded with a proverb that says, ‘’Death and accident don’t remind people of its coming.
“I don’t care how careful you are, I don’t care how calculative you are, when death visits your door today you will have no way to escape.”
Artists CIC, Margas Bimba and Feouls Kaba were in the vehicle as well on that faithful Friday morning.
CIC broke his legs in the tragic motor incident that took place before the headquarters of UNMIL, while Margas Bimba and Feouls Kaba sustained minor injuries.
The three Hipco artists were treated at the John F. Kennedy Medical Center hospital following the incident and later released to their respective families.
CIC and the late Quincy B are nominees in the 2017 Liberian Entertainment Awards.
A resident of Saye Town Community in Sinkor Molu Flomo says the demise of Quincy B is as a big setback to Liberian music industry.
Mr. Flomo said his death will greatly hurt the Liberian music business that is gradually growing from bad to good.
“When you listen to his music, you can know that he’s somebody who was innovative.
He created his own style and lyrics to his songs. I think this fallen musical giant could have taken Liberian entertainment to the next level,’’ he said.
Mr. Flomo said it’s now time for other musicians to follow the path of the fallen super star and begin to produce good music that will help change the minds and attitudes of Liberian youths.
‘’His death is hurting us but we probably can gain inspiration from it to put Liberia first and make changes in the music industry,” the Saye Town resident asserted.
For his part, a student of the state run University of Liberia Rotis Kanswen said it’s saddened to lose a great musician of our time.
Kanswen called on Liberian musicians to come together and pay homage to their fallen colleague, for only God knows why.
