Melbourne, Dec 31 (ANI): Boney M singer Bobby Farrell has been found dead in his hotel while on tour in Russia.

The 61-year-old singer performed as scheduled in St Petersburg on Wednesday night, but complained of breathing problems before and after his show, according to agent John Seine.

The cause of his death is not clear, said to Sergei Kapitanov, a representative of St. Petersburg’s branch of Russia’s investigative committee, reports the Daily Telegraph.

Boney M- consisting of Farrell, Maisie Williams, Liz Mitchell and Marcia Barrett-were one of the most successful bands of the late 1970s.

Farell rose to fame for his lip-synching as much as his dancing in the disco band.

The band’s hits included ‘Daddy Cool’, ‘Ma Baker’ and ‘Rasputin.’ (ANI)
