Jamaican dancehall artist, Robert Malcolm well known as Gully Bop has passed away at age 62.

Gully Bop had been admitted to the Kingston Public Hospital over complications from kidney disease. According to his pastor, Christopher Tate of El’Shaddai Prophetic Ministries, he passed away on Monday.

Gully Bop had reportedly struggled with health issues in recent months. The 'Body Specialist' deejay had reportedly undergone a surgery at the Kingston Public Hospital in 2022. A year later, he reportedly had a kidney transplant.

In 2014, Gully Bop, once known as Country Man, experienced a meteoric rise to fame when a video of him free-styling went viral. Bop, who was at the time homeless in Grants Pen, St Andrew, became an overnight sensation through the power of social media.

His popularity led to him being one of the main acts for Sting 2014 with songs like Dem Nuh Bad Like We, Dream and Body Specialist.

Pastor Tate revealed that Gully Bop had been baptised 'at an associate's church' before his death.

Condolences to family and friends and May his soul rest in peace.
