We are sending love and light to the king dancehall, Beenie Man.
Last week it was reported Beenie Man fainted at his mother’s funeral in St. Elizabeth. Initial reports claimed Beenie Man had to be rushed to the hospital, but Beenie Man broke his silence and said that’s not true.
He took to social media to thank his supporters for their love and kind words, and addressed the rumor that he was rushed to the hosptial. He said laying his mother to rest was one of the most difficult things he’s ever had to do. He said he tried to remain active but when he saw his mother, he simply broke down and blacked out. He said that when he fainted, he was surrounded by love and didn’t go to the hospital. Take a look:
Beenie Man performed at the 20th annual 2020 BET Hip Hop Awards. Beenie, alongside Skip Marley, Shenseea, Koffee, and Bounty Killa were in BET’s first-ever reggae cipher. Take a look:
Our hearts are with Beenie Man as he begins the healing process of losing his mother.
