Aidonia's videographer to be buried on Sunday
The date for the thanksgiving service for the late Lamar 'Peakstate' Doukie, official videographer of dancehall artiste Aidonia has been set.
Family and friends of the deceased are expected to say their final goodbyes this Sunday at a service scheduled for the Gold Smith Villa Seventh-day Adventist Church at 1 Gold Smith Villa, Kingston 7. The service is slated to start at 12:30 p.m. sharp with the interment to follow at Dovecot Memorial Park.
Aidonia's publicist, Raymond 'Shadow' Small, told The WEEKEND STAR that he is anticipating a huge turnout for Sunday's service as members of the entertainment fraternity are expected to show up in their numbers.
"We are expecting that a number of persons from the entertainment industry will show up. Lamar was not just Aidonia's videographer, but he was an important part of the industry and I think people are going to come out to pay their final respects," he said, pointing out that family and close friends of the deceased are still trying to come to grips with their loss. "The process is hard and they are still grieving but they are taking it in strides."
He also revealed that Aidonia was forced to cut his European tour short to allow himself time to grieve. "Lamar was not just his videographer, he was a really close friend, and so he took his death pretty hard."
Members of Aidonia's 4th Generation camp were plunged into mourning when Doukie died as a result of injuries he sustained in a car accident. Doukie was accompanying Aidonia to a football match in Montego Bay when he lost control of the vehicle he was driving and it collided into a tree on the Braco main road in Trelawny on April 11. The occupants of the vehicle were taken to hospital where Doukie was pronounced dead.
