Beenie Man denies COVID and detention reports

Jamaican dancehall deejay, Anthony Moses Davis, also known as Beenie Man, is flatly denying testing positive for the flu-like virus – Covid-19, when he arrived in Ghana to perform alongside other well-known Ghanaian artistes at the BhimConcert.

Beenie Man tweeted that he has had a shot in his arm, he has never caught Covid-19 before and tested negative for Covid-19.

The “Girls Dem Sugar” hitmaker’s twitter post read; “Update to my fans who are genuinely reaching out.

I have no COVID, never caught COVID before, tested negative for COVID. Been travelling for the past six months COVID-free. Fully vaccinated. I guess someone wants me to have COVID. Uno weird yf.”

He went on to pay enormous compliment to Ghana for the warmth and hospitality of its people. 

He described the West African nation as the best the country in the world and expressed his eagerness to return for another musical performance given in public, in year 2022.

The following is what he put on twitter: “Ghana was amazing. Love & light to @stonebwoy and the #BhimTeam.

The Ghanaian Government, Immigration, Health Team, Small Gad, Freedom, the whole team. #Ghana ah the best place inna the world. #BhimConcert21 looking fwd to 2022.”

The celebrated Reggae star performed in the concert alongside popular Ghanaian artistes including Stonebwoy, Kwaw Kese, MzVee and Samini.

Just after the show, news started in circulating on social media that Beenie Man has been detained by the Ghanaian authorities for breaking the country’s Covid-19 prevention and safety protocols.

According to the media reports, the dancehall artiste tested positive for the virus when he arrived at the Kotoka International Airport for the music performance and he was asked to go into isolation at a hotel.

He is said to have managed to leave the hotel to perform in the concert at the Accra International Centre.

The non-sourced story about Beenie Man, having been detained by the police at the Accra Airport has now been shot down by the man himself.
