They say disease does not really strike to most until it’s about somebody you know. I’m certain by now you are familiar with Jamaican reggae, dancehall legend, Anthony Moses Davis, also known as Beenie Man who was supposed to be performing at Drake’s OVO concert in Toronto, Canada, announced that he has contracted the deadly mosquito-bourne Zika virus. Announcing it via his Instagram page, Beenie Man added that the Canadian government denied him visa as a result of the disease. He also disclosed he had the dengue fever virus also from mosquitoes.
The festival is following after the country’s celebration of Caribana, including the king of soca, Machel Montano, as a featured performance. We wish you a speedy recovery. Keep Beenie Man in your prayers.
