Beenie Man Gets Zika; Forced To Miss OVO Festival

By HHL Editors

Drake's OVO fest is being held this weekend in Toronto.

Last night, Beenie Man was supposed to co-headline, as Drizzy paid tribute to his Jamaican influences.

However in a scary preview of what's starting to creep up on North America, the dancehall legend caught the Zika virus and wasn't allowed to make the trip from Canada to Jamaica.

He posted about his ordeal on IG.
