The pop-locker turned Hip-Hop icon Shabba-Doo transitioned to the glory a couple of weeks back on December 30th. He was 65.
Due to the global pandemic prompted by the COVID-19 virus, his actual homegoing service was held in a hybrid ceremony (in-person and online) 17 days after his death.
Known for his outstanding role as “Ozone” in the hit 1984 movie “Breakin,” Adolfo Quiñones (his real name) had a memorial service at a Los Angeles church where only his two children and siblings were able to attend.
In addition to the live funeral service, there was another link where family members, friends, associates, and also fans left messages (video, photos, and tributes) to the masterful dancer and outstanding influencer of the Hip-Hop performing arts.
One of the last messages that Shabba-Doo posted on social media said the following:
“Good News y’all!…I’m feeling all better just a wee bit sluggish from my cold, but the good news is I’m Covid 19 negative! Woo hoo!!! I awoke this morning to a gift from my pall, George “DJ 360” Jett! Thanks man!
Anyway, I’m excited lots of catching up to do. Let’s goo! Thank you to everyone for your kind, sweet, and loving get well wishes and thoughts. Oh, I didn’t sleep in my beaning and glasses, lol, I donned them because my vanity kicked in and I didn’t want you to see my bed head, and crusty eyes, haha… Have a great day peeps.
#covidwarriors #covidscare #lol.”
His death was determined to be caused by arteriosclerotic cardiovascular disease.
