FORMER radio presenter and showbiz guru, Dennis Wilson, has died after a short illness.
Wilson, born Delroy Wilson in Kingston Jamaica died at his home in Alexandra after a short illness.
After moving to London in the 1970s, Wilson joined a small sound system and his love for reggae music grew immensely. When he moved to Zimbabwe in the ’80s, he was spotted while playing at parties.
Wilson was invited to join radio and he managed to distinguish himself as a DJ. His reggae sessions were a must listen. His Jamaican accent also fascinated many.
He believed that reggae music is “huge in Zimbabwe” and the fact that an influx of Jamaican artistes have been invading the country every year is a clear testimony to that assertion.
Wilson became popular on Radio 3 (now Power FM) in the 1990s after landing in the country in the 80’s before being spotted while playing at parties.
He joined radio and became an instant hit as a DJ, becoming popular through his signature tune, Freddie McGregor’s Push Comes to Shove. 🔺
