Shakira passes

Very sad to hear of the passing of Shakira Martin, a former Miss Jamaica Universe beauty queen and one of four children of ex-Steel Pulse vocalist Phonso Martin, who spent fourteen years with the band, from their earliest days up until 1991.
Shaikra was a victim of Sickle Cell disease and a committed advocate for the cause. She used her success as a beauty queen to spread awareness of sickle cell anaemia. She passed away from complications with sickle cell blood clots in both her lungs, on 3 August, aged just 30.
