A cousin of mine Jabel Ceesay has just passed away in New York City. Jabel was battling with liver cancer. The last time we spoke was few weeks ago. He was admitted at a Queens hospital being assisted by his ex-wife.
I woke up this morning only to be informed that Jabel has passed away. His namesake Jabel Ceesay had left me a voice message to inform me that his namesake has passed away.
The news of his death has brought shocking waves to the family. He was a devoted Muslim. He left kids behind. May God reserve place for him in heaven. Amen.
Jabel came to the United States in the early eighties. He was known as Master J.
His late mum Ya Dadou M’Bai and lawyer Fafa Edrissa M’Bai shared the same mum and Dad. Mr. M’Bai is his uncle.
Jabel hailed from Niamina Mamut-Fana. He was a familiar voice on Freedom Radio Gambia.
Today is a sad day for the Ceesay, MBai, Camara, Touray, Mboge, and Nget families. May God reserve place for him in heaven. Amen.
