The description of the page read: “Our beloved Johnny “Josephine Johnny” Watson has gained his wings.

“Any donation that God puts upon your heart to give will help us with his home-going celebration and burial.”

Johnny was best known for his hits Workin It Sumthin, Classic and Shorty In That Thong.

Following the tragic news, fans rushed to social media to pay tribute to Watson.

“Rest In Peace to a New Orleans legend Josephine Johnny,” one wrote.

Another said: “We lost the creators of Josephine Johnny AND Bunny Hop this month. I’m spending tonight dancing with my kid to some Louisiana legends.”

He died after a long battle with kidney illnesses, KLFY reported citing sources.

Fellow artist Bryson ‘Cupid’ Bernard said: “Bunny B was the pioneer of hip-hop in Lafayette. Although we had a lot of rappers who came out, Bunny B was the one who stood on his creativity.”

What Is An Obituary

In national newspapers an obituary (obit for short) is a news article that reports the recent death of a prominent person. Although it tends to focus on positive aspects of the subject’s life this is not always the case. According to Nigel Farndale, the Obituaries Editor of The Times: “Obits should be life affirming rather than gloomy, but they should also be opinionated, leaving the reader with a strong sense of whether the subject lived a good life or bad; whether they were right or wrong in the handling of their public affairs.”

In local newspapers, an obituary may be published for any local resident upon death. A necrology is a register or list of records of the deaths of people related to a particular organization, group or field, which may only contain the sparsest details, or small obituaries. Historical necrologies can be important sources of information.
