Tonight, dancehall mourns one of its legends as Niko, whose given name is Nicholas Grant, passed away tonight after a long battle with kidney disease since 2015.

The entertainment industry reacted in shock when he died but most seemed concerned that no one from Chromatic had posted about his death up to the time of this story being posted.  A family member had stepped forward a few months ago and offered Niko a kidney. According to sources close to popular disc jock, the necessary tests are currently being carried out to ensure Niko will have a successful transplant surgery in Cuba.

Niko had been ailing for some time and returned a year later to announce his illness and launched a GoFundMe account to cover his USD $50,000 medical fee. To date only US $20,850 has been donated via that account

A large portion was generated last year November from the staging of a charity event dubbed “Dancehall for a Cause” held at the Triple Century Car Park in New Kingston.
