Unable to follow the Jamaican tradition of a big nine-night, former politician Dr DK Duncan will be remembered in a virtual ‘nine afternoon’ on Saturday, September 26.
Duncan died in hospital last week, some time after testing positive for COVID-19. He was 80 years old.
To celebrate his life, his family will be hosting the virtual event. It will be streamed live via Zoom and YouTube between 3 and 7:30 p.m.
“Daddy loved our culture! And today is the Ninth Day… No ‘Nine Night’ given curfew in Jamaica so it’s a ‘Nine Afternoon’ around Saturday Soup and Chattings! Come celebrate DK with us online TODAY between 3 pm and 7 30pm by Zoom or Youtube,” his daughter Imani Duncan-Price said on Twitter on Saturday morning.
Entertainment will be provided by DJ Narity, Connection Vibes and Supersad Drummers.
