Beenie Man Down With Zika Virus


For months, people across America have been hearing troubling stories about the spread of the Zika virus across other nations, particularly in South America. And although the threat of an outbreak in the States has been a frightening thought to many people, the threat seemed to be kept at bay until recently. And now reports have revealed that a major star, Beenie Man, has now contracted the virus.

The legendary Jamaican artist announced that he has the disease yesterday when he shared the news with fans on his Instagram page that he had to cancel his headlining set on the second night of Drake’s OVO Festival because he was denied entry into Canada over his diagnosis.

“Jah know…dah week ya deal wid me a way!! No visa fi mi Canada show (I apologize again to my fans in case you haven’t seen the press release).  Zika Virus hol’ mi. The same Zika mosquito gi mi dengue. Blood test, injections, pills. Wi a hol firm still. Selassie a guide I n I right through so once mi have life me a give thanks. #Unstoppable,” Beenie Man wrote.

The Zika virus is a communicable disease that can be spread through mosquito bites, sex, from a pregnant woman to her baby, and through blood transfusions.
