Legendary Reggae Artist Frankie Dancehall Paul dead at 52.

Paul Blake (1965 - 2017), better known as Frankie Paul, was a Jamaican dancehall reggae artist.

Born blind, he has been dubbed by some 'The Jamaican Stevie Wonder'. 


Paul was born blind but as a child had his sight partially restored by an operation on a hospital ship.

He sang for, and impressed Stevie Wonder when Wonder visited the school that Paul attended in Jamaica, prompting him to pursue a singing career and later adopted the stage name Frankie Paul.


He was a talented multi-instrumentalist with a tremendous vocal range and first found fame in the early 1980s. He was also extraordinarily prolific; part of the first wave of dancehall artists that recorded during the early '80s, and has since flooded the market with his product, releasing countless singles and well over 30 albums.

Some of his hit singles are "Tidal Wave, Worries In The dance, Alesha, Cassanova, Sara, Fire Deh a Mus Mus Tail, Pass the Ku-Sheng Peng and many more".


Frankie Paul died May, 18, 2017 at the University Hospital of the West Indies in Jamaica after a battle with kidney disease. He will be missed but his music will live on. RIP.‚Äč
