British Artist Ty dies

British artist Ty (real name Ben Chijioke) has died. He was 47 years old.

The acclaimed rapper died on Thursday (7 May 2020) after contracting pneumonia while recovering from coronavirus. Ty’s friend Diane Laidlaw said:

“Ty’s condition had been improving but last week while on a normal ward he had contracted pneumonia which worsened his recovery and ultimately Ty’s body couldn’t fight back anymore”.

Ty released his debut album Awkward in 2001. He later went on to release the albums Upwards (2003), Closer (2006) , Special Kind of Fool (2010) and TY a Work of Heart (2018).Β 

You will be greatly missed sir. 😦

Rest In Peace Ben Chijioke aka TY.
