Hundreds In Tears Paid Homage To Fallen Musician, Quincy ‘B’ At The ATS For Wake keeping

Hundreds of Liberians as early as midday today walked alongside the casket bearing the remains of Quincy L. Burrowes, affectionately called Quincy ‘B’ from the St. Moses Funeral Parlors in Gardnerville to the Antoinette Tubman Stadium for a nightlong wake keeping.

Mourners, mostly young people in t-shirts with the portrait of the late Liberian musical star were seen in tears as they accompanied the transparent casket to the ATS for the night, as dozens of others stood on the sidewalks to take a glance of the remains of their favorite musical star.

As the long queue of vehicles accompanying the casket drove from the funeral parlors, the entire city of Monrovia and its suburb was locked with traffic, as vehicles traveling from that route could not easily drive on.

The fallen Liberian musical star died on March 3, 2017 as a result of a vehicle which he was driving crash around the headquarter of the United Nations Mission in Liberia (UNMIL) and the Monrovia City Hall during the early morning hour. He is expected to be buried tomorrow, Saturday, March 25, 2017 in Bong County his birth place.
