Social media users on Twitter and Instagram are seemingly in disbelief as they await confirmation while others, including beauty queen Yendi Phillipps, have already started expressing condolences.
Phillipps, using her Instagram handle yendizzle, a short while ago posted a video of her dancing to J Capri’s popular song ‘Reverse it’, captioning it “Because I think she’s one of the most truly talented people dancehall music has seen in a long time…” adding “…I wish we got a little more time with you and your musical gift but I’ve learned to never ever question our creator.”

The 23-year-old, whose full name is Jordan Phillips, was on November 23 rushed to the University Hospital of the West Indies and reportedly underwent surgery after suffering from what is said to be a fractured skull as well as brain damage.

An appeal went out for people to donate blood on her behalf.

Days after, despite being in an induced coma, she was said to be showing signs of improvement.

BARRINGTON Levy has been forced to cancel shows in the United States after being hospitalised with dengue fever.

He had been slated to perform last week in California; in Santa Barbara and at the Greek Theatre in Los Angeles.

“He has another show in Trinidad and Tobago on October 3, so he might miss that as well because this is a serious disease,” said General Daddy Biggs of Platinum Camp, Levy’s official booking agent.

Dengue is a debilitating viral disease transmitted by mosquitoes. Its symptoms include sudden fever and acute joint pains.

Levy was hospitalized after collapsing, his agent said.
