Jamaican Manchester City striker Raheem Sterling has dedicated his two goals from the team’s Championship League win to the recently deceased dancehall artiste J Capri.
In an Instagram post online, Sterling said he was “determine to score” for the singjay, who died from injuries sustained in a car accident. The soccer player also reportedly inscribed the dancehall artiste’s name and the day she died on some new custom footwear.
Twenty-three year old Capri died of complications linked to injuries she sustained in a motor vehicle accident on November 23, just a few weeks shy of her 24th birthday.
The singer, whose full name is Jordan Phillips, had been in an induced coma, after her car slammed into a wall and overturned in St. Andrew, Jamaica.
The artiste had performed an emergency surgery immediately after the crash, after suffering a fractured skull and brain damage.
Phillips had been considered one of Jamaica’s best female dancehall artistes of her generation.
