The sad news was confirmed by Paul's sister, Tisha Clarke, who spoke to artist Wayne Lonesome about her brother's shocking death.
Lonesome went live on Facebook, and streamed the conversation between himself and Clarke, where she shared the news.
The clip has now received over 6.8k views, with many commentators sharing their condolences to the late reggae star.
This week, Clarke told The Gleaner that the latest bill she was issued regarding Paul's hospital treatment was quoted as $1.4 million in outstanding payments. "I don't have no more money because I have to buy prescriptions for him that they don't have at the pharmacy," she said.
According to Clarke, Paul had been a patient at the UHWI since April 2017, and was ill for an extended period of time.
