The news of this tragic and untimely death, of such a talented and vibrant man, father, husband and rising superstar, has shocked residents of the twin-island nation of St. Kitts and Nevis, where Masud was well known and loved by fans of all ages.
Though police have declined to confirm or deny, there are unconfirmed reports, up to the time of filing this story, that the singer committed suicide. His body was said to have been found in the Wingfield area.
Masud was recently named as one of the artistes to appear at next month’s St. Kitts Music Festival, an appearance that he had been greatly anticipating. It was only about a week ago he promised the public and his fans that he intended to deliver an outstanding performance at the festival.
He has also been working on a number of projects to promote his music and was even working on leading a team of entertainers to England, to perform at a series of concerts, just ahead of the summer Olympics in London. These concerts, he indicated, were designed to highlight not only the talent of local artistes but also promote the destination of St. Kitts and Nevis and provide support for the athletes from St. Kitts and Nevis who would be journeying to the 2012 games.
As more details, about his untimely death emerge, MiyVue,com will provide further updates.
