The Opposition People’s National Party is today paying tribute to late Jamaican entertainer Frankie Paul, who died on Thursday.

Opposition spokesperson on entertainment, Natalie Neita says Frankie Paul’s death marks the loss of another Jamaican pioneer.

According to Neita, the entertainer, whose real name is Paul Blake, did not have an easy road to success, spending his formative years at the Salvation Army’s School for the Blind in Kingston.

However, she says after deciding to become a professional singer at age 15, Frankie Paul never wavered and went on to establish himself as one of the voices of his generation.
