Grammy-winning Jamaican reggae artist Beenie Man was set to perform on the second night of OVO Fest 2016 but has had to cancel because he has been denied a Canadian visa, since he has contracted both dengue fever and Zika virus.
Drake’s OVO Fest promises “a slew of surprise special guests” as well as headliner Machel Montano.
On Instagram, Beenie Man put out this statement:
“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.
