Dancehall diva J Capri is not out of the woods as yet and is currently in an induced coma at the University Hospital of the West Indies in Kingston, Jamaica. The artist still needs a lot of blood and people are being asked to come to the hospital and donate blood.
J Capri, whose given name is Jordan Phillips, reportedly lost control of her Mercedes-Benz which hit a wall before overturning along Barbican Road in St Andrew, early yesterday morning.
“We are really grateful to the donors who came in to give blood, but we are asking others to please contribute as her blood count is extremely low. She really lost a lot of blood,” her father, Kenneth Phillips said.
“The surgery went well but she is still in a serious condition. She was placed in a coma because the doctors don’t want her brain to be too active at this time, because she suffered head trauma. The swelling on her brain is decreasing though,” Mr. Phillips added.
Reggae and dancehall entertainers were out in full force on social media, showing love and support to J Capri.
“God, please be with her through all this… All my prayers going up for you,” a post on Popcaan’s Instagram page read.
“Jah Guide and Protect J Capri,” Tarrus Riley said on Facebook page.
Also taking the time out to send words of encouragement were Shaggy, Beenie Man, Tifa and Macka Diamond.
