The Stone Love Movements family face a bleak Christmas as selector Duane “Duane Pow” Powell, son of Stone Love founder Winston “Wee Pow” Powell, is reportedly still in the University Hospital of the West Indies. He had been admitted three weeks ago.

Calls to the senior Powell's phone went unanswered on Friday, but a family friend confided that "Duane is still in a coma, the family is devastated".

Duane Pow was hospitalised after complaining of headaches. A former student of St Andrew Technical High School in Kingston, he started his own journey in music in 2001 as selector for Stone Love.

A number of friends and fans of the entertainer have taken to social media to offer prayers and wish him a full recovery.

He established his record label called Strivers in 2011 and has released rhythms such as Party Anthem featuring Fambo and Charly Black.
