Bunny Wailer: Reggae Legend Buried 3 Months after His Death

We have to come to learn that Late legendary Reggae musician Bunny Wailer was buried on Friday, June 17, three months after his sad demise.

Bunny was laid to rest at his Dreamland Farm at a very private burial service. A virtual memorial service dubbed a ”Homecoming” for the revered artiste was streamed on social media on Thursday, June 17.

News about Bunny’s burial was confirmed by his son Abijah Livingston, who said there will be no public viewing of his father’s body in line with his wishes before his death.

The family also decided to bar body viewing because of the current COVID-19 restrictions in Jamaica.

Bunny, who was a three-time Grammy award winner died on March 2, 2021, at the age of 74.

Reports from Jamaica had earlier disclosed that the celebrated reggae star had previously been admitted to the hospital for complications following a second stroke he suffered in July 2020.

Prior to his burial, there were debates on whether he should be buried at the National Heroes Park owing to his heroic status.

However, it was decided he should be buried at his own Dreamland Farm which is a 142-acre estate sitting on the border of St Thomas and Portland.
