“Sweet baby, life won’t be the same without you,” Martina said in tribute to her daughter.
A full tribute was posted via Tricky’s official social media, it read: “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 will live on, I will make sure they do. I haven’t 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”
