    I remember sweet Daddy siki as a young girl… I am a polio survivor and one afternoon in Niagara falls ont. Mr. siki happened to be in a drug store purchasing, I happened to be behind him in my wheelchair… I knew him as my father is a wrestling watcher at that time. I was about ten maybe. He turned and said hello asked me if i would be alright I said yes and he gave me a dollar.. which i spent immediately to the horror of my parents.. I will never forget the blonde hair, as well as how big and strong he was..

 

Wondering if he is still alive and if so… send him my Thank you. It was very thrilling.

I just wanted to say that Sweet Daddy is a dj at the Duke of York, at Queen and Leslie streets in Toronto, Canada. He plays an awesome mix of hip hop, reggaeton, and country. He won’t, however, play anything with swearing in it because he’s a born again Christian. My friend requested Funky Cold Medina and he had it. He has a picture in his dj booth of him wrestling in his younger days. He’s the coolest!
