Vegas keeps vigil today for slain two years old
International recording artiste Mr Vegas has decided to stage a prayer vigil today in Luke Lane, downtown Kingston between 4:30 and 7 p.m. in memory of Demario Whyte, a two-year-old boy who was allegedly shot and killed in the area.
The dancehall artiste who recently decided to give his life to Jesus, said he is keeping the vigil to send a strong message to criminals that they must stop murdering the innocent youths of Jamaica.
“The life of an innocent two-year-old child was recently snuffed out by heartless gunmen, what they did to little Demario is barbaric. We can’t continue like this Jamaica, something has to be done we have to send a message to them to let them know that they must stop killing our children,” said Vegas. "Jesus said 'Suffer the little children to come unto to me and I will give them rest'. We are doing this Vigil for Demario who’s now resting in the arms of the saviour."
Vegas is appealing members of the public to come out on time for the vigil and bring candles and flowers.
“I want everyone to come on time, take candles and flowers, let's send a strong message to killers; it’s time to let them know that the violence and crime must end,” he said.
