Late Prime Minister David Thompson was such a big fan of reggae artiste Luciano, that he attended most of the shows the Jamaican held here.
In fact, Thompson thought  so much of the artiste work that he had him perform at a Democratic Labour Party rally during the 2008 general elections.
And today the entertainer paid tribute to his leading Bajan fan by attending Thompson’s state funeral.
Seated in the Haynes and Greenidge stand along with promoter Freddy Hill, Luciano said he had to come as ‘King David’ was his friend and fan who showed great appreciation for his music.
“When you have a (Government)minister who has a keen interest in music he is a peoples’ person,” said Luciano.
The artiste said what he liked most about Thompson was that he was very “down-to-earth and natural person. When I meet people of high (calibre) like that and they are so straight forward . . .  They are special – and he was special.” (SP)
