The new holder of the title is117-year-old Jamaican; Violet-Mosse Brown otherwise known as Aunt V. She was born on March 10, 1900, which is 67 years before Jamaica was founded. 



She has been a music teacher and church organist for over 80 years. After her husband's death in 1997, she took over his responsibilities and became a record-keeper for the local cemetery.

Her new title was confirmed by Jamaican Prime Minister Andrew Holness who congratulated Brown on the achievement on Twitter.
