Popular radio and television personality Bagga Brown is Dead



Basil ‘Bagga’ Brown, former insurance salesman, veteran radio and television personality and co-founder of the now defunct Rockers Award, is dead.

 

Reports are that Bagga, who hosts the popular vox pop programme with the catchy tag line, 'Weh u Seh, on Smile Jamaica TVJ' lost the fight with cancer.

 

According to a good friend, who spoke on condition of anonymity, Brown was diagnosed with throat cancer three years ago and went to Miami, Florida, where he had surgery and was recuperating.

 

“He had a hard time with the surgery and lost eight of his teeth in the process,” the source said. “If you even listen to the last commercial he voiced, it sounds off.”

 

However, just last week he was admitted to hospital as the cancer had returned, but in a different form.

 

“It makes him bleed, but the doctors say it is treatable,” the friend said.

 

Bagga  was reportedly being given chemotherapy at the hospital, but had a cold that he didn’t tell his physicians about.The end result was that Bagga became critically ill.

 

“He has been to death’s door and back,” the source revealed. “ Two months  the doctors told us that anybody who wanted to see Bagga should come now. But Bagga is a fighter ", the source reported.

 

It was announced on radio that Bagga was gravely ill and an appeal was being made for persons to go and give blood for him at the blood bank.

 

Bagga Brown was  in his mid fifties when he passed away .......RIP .......... we love and  respect  your contribution  to our way of life
