‘Brudda Daddy’ needs help
ACTOR AND POPULAR EMCEE Antoine Williams, familiarly known as “Brudda Daddy”, needs help.
He has been diagnosed with colon cancer and is scheduled to undergo surgery at Bayview Hospital on Monday, May Day. However, the entire project will require about $200 000 to cover surgery and medical needs.
As a result, Williams’ fellow artistes have stepped up to the plate. They will spearhead a drive to launch a charity organisation to assist in securing funds for the well known personality.
Sade Leon Slinger-Folkes, Anthony Admiral Nelson, Eleanor Rice-Watson and Stedson Red Plastic Bag Wiltshire are principals behind the initiative. The first fundraising event kicks off at the Lloyd Erskine Sandiford Centre on Saturday at 8 p.m. Several entertainers are in the line-up for the show. There will be a special production of the hilarious Laff-it-Off 2017,which takes a satirical look at local happenings
When the MIDWEEK NATION spoke to Williams yesterday, missing was his characteristic effervescence.
In a quiet voice, he said he was diagnosed with the illness in February but had been “getting around” even though he was not well.
However, it was “chin up” as he anticipated Monday’s surgery, which he appeared to be approaching bravely.
He said he was taking this week to relax “and not to focus on too many things”, but was still “up and about” and not laid up in bed. (GC)
