Beenie Man could not make it to the seventh edition of Drake’s OVO Festival which was scheduled to hold on Friday July 29 2016 in Canada.
The Grammy award winning international artiste and king of the dancehall, Anthony Moses Davis in a press release stated his absence was due to illness as he had contracted the much talked about Zika virus and would therefore not be issued a Canadian visa.
The musician however in an Instagram revealed he was responding to treatment. He was also grateful for the gift of life.
