Trinidad Prime Minister Dr. Keith Rowley in a statement posted on social media said:

“Condolences on the Passing of Dexter ‘Blaxx’ Stewart. Dexter ‘Blaxx’ Stewart has been a regular talented exponent of the happy musical culture of Trinidad and Tobago.  His contributions were eagerly awaited each year and appreciated by hordes of adoring fans. He will be sorely missed.”
