Before honoring his friend’s life through music, Riley spoke about Kemp for a couple of minutes, saying:

There’s one thing that I want to tell everybody here. There was another surprise that was supposed to been here with us tonight. And he [Johnny Kemp] came all the way because  this is what he wanted. He said to me, ‘lil’ brother, I’ma make it. I don’t really want to make it but I’m gonna make it, I’ma be there.’ His last text to me was, ‘See you in a minute, we are going to have a lot of fun.’ And he got here, he got to Jamaica. When he got to Jamaica he was stopped and it was only because of a few words that he said that revoked him from getting on this ship.”

He continued,

And I feel really bad because he went out doing something and making the attempt to do what he was born to do. He’s a star, now he’s a star with our God. He’s resting in paradise right now.


Kemp died on April 16, 2015 in Jamaica.
