Reggae star Barrington Levy has fallen ill and hospitalized this weekend after getting dengue fever. He won’t be making his previous scheduled show at the Greek Theater on Sunday in LA.
I’ve been hospitalized after falling gravely ill. After running a dangerously high temperature I collapsed and was rushed to the hospital where I was diagnosed with Dengue Fever.
I was scheduled to perform this Friday in Santa Barbara and on Sunday the 27th at the Greek Theater in Los Angeles on the ‘Catch A Fire’ tour with Damian Marley but i won’t make it…I apologise to all my fans who wanted to see me but i ain’t got no other choice than taking care of my health…
Whisper a word of prayer for my speedy recovery.
The severity of his condition is unclear at this time.
The source also explained that Levy’s medical team has been very tight-lipped as to the signer’s diagnosis.
In an Instagram post on Saturday, fellow reggae heavyweight Maxi Priest mentioned that the reggae crooner is not well and been hospitalised.
“My bredren@barringtonlevy411 is not well at this moment and currently in the hospital. May the Hands of the Almighty heal and renew your strength. We are all here thinking of you and praying for your speedy recovery. Rastafari love and blessings King,” he wrote.
We will update this as more information becomes available.
Levy is known for songs such as Too Experienced, Be Strong, Murderer, Living Dangerously and the ever-popular Broader than Broadway.
