Popular music video director Tevin ‘Lumba’ Taylor of Blacq Road Media Films died suddenly on Sunday morning of a suspected heart attack.
“Lumba, ah one of my favorite cousins, and knowing he just left is hard to deal with. It’s kind of shocking,” dancehall artist Miguel Wealthy told Loop News .
According to reports, Lumba ordered chicken from a popular jerk chicken vendor in St Andrew, only to fall ill a few hours later. He suffered from severe diarrhea and vomiting and was rushed to Kingston Public Hospital (KPH).
Doctors referred him to be transferred to University Hospital of the West Indies (UHWI), where he reportedly suffered a cardiac arrest.
“Mi really cut and it shook a lot of artists because he shot a lot of great videos for them,” Wealthy said.
Lumba would have turned 29 next month.
He shot videos for songs like ‘Freaky Gal’, ‘P…P… Scamming’, ‘Caution’ and ‘Bubble’ for Miguel Wealthy.
“It’s a great loss for the music industry,” Wealthy said.
Lumba has shot other videos for singles such as Solidarity and Dream by Nation Boss, Pain for Silk Boss, Love Shoot for Skillibeng, Feel Secure by Kash and Garrison Above for Chronic Law.
