Back in May 2022, New York-based Guyanese artiste Curt “Ceejay” Johnson was gunned down during a robbery as he was leaving a party in New Jersey. The singer/producer, according to information received, was shot multiple times.
He migrated to the US in 2002 and got involved in the music industry almost immediately, launching his own record label and a number of singles over the years.
