Seychelles Culture Department pays respect to the family and friends of local artist Eugene Fred

Seychelles Culture Department pays respect to the family and friends of local artist Eugene Fred ( On Thursday last week, Alain St.Ange, the Seychelles Minister responsible for Tourism and Culture, accompanied by Benjamine Rose, the PS for Culture, paid their respect to the family and friends of Eugene Fred. The Seychellois artist, known under the name of East Side Master when he was performing, passed away last week leaving behind his wife Denise Fred and their four children Thyra Fred, Dina Gappy, Ricky Fred, and Andrew Hoareau.

Minister St.Ange and PS Benjamine Rose sympathized with the Denise Fred, the children, and friends of the late Eugene Fred when they went to pay their final respect to the late local artist before his funeral.

“As Minister and PS responsible for Culture we work to the best of our ability with the local artist community. We believe that culture of one's country is the essential fabric that unites the population. It is our culture through music and dance that provides for us all our relaxation and our entertainment," the Minister said.

The Ministry of Tourism and Culture continues to appeal to everyone to appreciate the Seychelles culture and to understand the need to let the culture in all its form attain new heights. “Today we are saddened to lose one of our respected artists. East Side Master was a known local personality, and it is our duty to be with the family in their moment of sadness to express our sympathy," Minister St.Ange said.

Eugene Fred, who has a twin brother in Davis Fred, was a person who had a typical Seychellois “joie de vivre.” He was a seasoned guitarist who had created his own recorded studio and launched three popular music albums.
