Ex-Massive Attack star Tricky’s daughter Mina Mazy Topley-Bird dies at 24

Ex-Massive Attack star Tricky has revealed the tragic news that his daughter has died.

Mina Mazy Topley-Bird passed away on May 8, her heartbroken parents have said.

Rapper Tricky, 51, shared the news in a heartbreaking Facebook post on behalf of himself and Mina's mum Martina Topley-Bird.

He said: "I thought I knew what loss was, but now my daughter is gone I realise I had no idea what it was after all.

"It feels like I'm in a world that doesn't exist, knowing nothing will ever be the same again.

"No words or text can really explain — my soul feels empty.

"Mazy Mina, my daughter, had two names — some people called her Mazy, some people called her Mina.

"She had an amazing talent for singing and songwriting; songs which will be finished and heard.

"Your words and songs live on, I will make sure they do.

"I haven' had the strength to even look at a picture of you until now — people will hear your voice and songs.

"All my heart — what's left of it.

"Love you Mazy Mina, Dad."

Mina was born on March 19, 1995 and died on May 8, 2019.

The Facebook post also included a quote from Martina, who said: "Sweet baby, life won’t be the same without you"

The star's fans shared in his sorrow.

One said: "Heartbreaking news. Our thoughts go with you and yours"

Another said: "So so so sorry to hear. My heart absolutely breaks for you. Nothing but love and the purest of thoughts to you, Martina and all else close. Take time."

While another commented: " I am so terribly sorry for you loss. I know no words could ever be enough to comfort you, but sending my love and sympathy to your family and you guys. She sounds like a truly beautiful soul."

Tricky also posted a link to Mina's song When You Go in tribute.

In the song, Mina sings: "Take me with you when you go.

"I'll wait with a smile 'til you come home."

Tricky collaborated with Massive Attack in the 80s and 90s and met Martina during that time.

Martina was sitting on a wall by herself singing near Tricky's home when they met.

They went on to release song Aftermath together, and she became the main vocalist on his first solo album Maxinquaye, in 1995.

Their daughter was born that same year.

A cause of death is not yet known.
