As reported by the Jamaica Star earlier today, “From the Gully to the Money” St. Andrew dancehall artiste Gully Bop has been admitted to the Kingston Public Hospital Due to complications he’s currently going through. Bop has been in the hospital since Sunday night after initially visiting on Saturday but left on two occasions because he was afraid of contracting COVID-19 while there.
Gully Bop spoke to the Jamaica Star from his hospital bed, detailing the illness he’s currently facing. According to Bop, he’s in the hospital treating a hernia and blocked tube complication which is causing him to feel a lot of pain and even be unable to urinate.
“One of the hardest pain mi ever feel,” said the ‘Wuk Affi Mi’ artiste who is currently on drips. He went on to explain that, “Mi did come from Saturday and run weh cause mi fraid a di COVID. And mi come back Sunday morning and run weh again. But Sunday night mi did haffi come back, because the pain was too much.”
Bop thanked the staff at the KPH and praised them for their help so far, he labelled them as “the nicest nurses who deal wid people good,” however he believes that being fitted with a urine drainage bag is one of the reasons why he’s feeling intense pain at times.
The outspoken deejay also noted that he was unable to eat but is optimistic about getting better soon, “mi just want to mek mi fans know that I am sick but me a come a road soon,” he concluded.
