The Sad Passing of Heavy “D” December 1, 2020 – Posted in: News Newell aka Heavy D or The Boominator R.I.P. Got the news today. My thoughts are with his family and all friends of the big man. On-screen Colin was best to describe as Marmite, you either like that character or? But off-screen we had some quality moments over the years. Delighted he had the opportunity to play his role in the new ”Rise Of The Foot Soldier” movie (he was so, so existed to have the part, hence this video clip ??) which he managed to complete 3 weeks ago before his passing. ?? One of my fondest memories with Colin will always be when Colin snuck into see me at my Print Shop on Junction of Brick Lane and Bethnal Green Road, Shoreditch and performed a standup routine for all my staff and a shop busting full of customers and simply smashed it!!! ?????? Rest well soldier! ?? Every time the lighting strikes we shall remember ??  you! #Boom ??
