Details surrounding the death of his sister have not yet been released.
Nesbeth was said to not be in a position to speak to the media yesterday. However, his publicist, Raymond 'Shadow' Small, told THE WEEKEND STAR yesterday that the singer is taking the news in stride.
At his wife's funeral in March, Nesbeth was a picture of grief, fighting back tears as he said his final goodbyes. In a tribute song performed at the service, the artiste recounted how difficult it was for him and his family to come to grips with his wife's passing, stating that it was a tremendous loss. As he recalled the love they shared, he also revealed how great a void her passing left in his heart.
