Government to erect bust of Lee ‘Scratch’ Perry in Hanover – Grange

Lee 'Scratch' Perry

Government has announced plans to erect a bust of the late Lee ‘Scratch’ Perry in his native parish of Hanover.


The announcement was made in a tribute by Minister of Culture, Gender, Entertainment and Sport, Olivia Grange, which was read by Tamika Davis, Member of Parliament (MP) for Hanover Western, at the graveside during last Thursday’s brief funeral for the late reggae icon.


Perry was laid to rest at a family plot in Cauldwell, Hanover.


“To his widow, Mirella, (his) children, siblings, and other relatives, it is my intention to honour him with a bust to be erected in Hanover as a fitting tribute to one of the parish’s greatest sons, as part of the Jamaica 60 Diamond Jubilee celebrations,” was stated by Davis as part of Grange’s tribute to Perry.


Grange added that, “I am saddened by his transition, but at the same time, grateful for the enduring monuments – his music, his hits, his personality, his fashion, his philosophy.”


The Grammy Award-winning Jamaican music pioneer died in August at the Noel Holmes Hospital in Lucea, Hanover after battling illness for some time.


Perry was 85 years old.
