“Butch Ravaz”: Ding Dong pays tribute late hotelier

Dancehall artiste Ding Dong

The loss of Jamaican hotelier Gordon “Butch” Stewart continues to create ripple effects across the region as many individuals, organisations and institutions pay their respects.

Stewart’s impact was not only felt by those directly involved in tourism, but by all related industries.

Dancehall artiste Ding Dong added to the outpouring of admiration being paid to the mogul, sharing a fun tribute video to the man he calls a “superstar”.

In the video, Stewart and his son Adam can be seen along with Ding Dong and his Ravers Clavaz dancers. Ding Dong introduces himself and his group to the elder Stewart, telling him that if he “buss the place”, then he will perform at all his event free of charge. The rest of the video is testament to the wit, spontaneity and warmth with which “Butch” regarded everyone he came in touch with.
