A Belfast DJ has made Christmas extra special for one Co Antrim schoolboy who lost his baby brother and grandad in just two years.
Jai Clarke, 10, was left shell-shocked when his musical idol DJ Shugz aka Christopher Kirkpatrick turned up with the surprise of a lifetime on Christmas Eve.
Mum Louise Lynn wasn’t expecting when she emailed the DJ’s agency to ask if he would sign a poster for her son that he would go one step further and arrange to meet Jai in person.
Jai’s baby brother Shea passed away when he was just four weeks old from an infection known as Staphylococcus Aureaus and mum Louise said he found it tough to deal with as well as the death of his grandad.
The 33-year-old explained: “We got Jai a set of decks for his 10th birthday, he’s music mad and his idol is Shugz. He’s had a tough few years following the sudden death of his baby brother Shea in 2015 and then his grandad, my father, a year later.
