DANCEHALL SINGER J CAPRI, IN INDUCED COMA AFTER CAR ACCIDENT IN KINGSTON!

KENNETH Phillips, father of singer J Capri, is imploring members of the public to continue donating blood to assist in his daughter’s recovery.

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,” he said.

Phillips told the Jamaica Observer that his daughter did an emergency surgery at the University Hospital of the West Indies in Kingston and is in an induced coma.

“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,” he said.

As news of the entertainer’s accident made rounds on social media, members of the entertainment fraternity posted words of encouragement and prayers to the singer and her family.

“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.

J Capri, 25, is a past student of Edna Manley College of the Visual and Performing Arts. While attending the institution, she met producer Tarik ‘Rvssian’ Johnston. The meeting led to her being the first female signed to Johnston’s Head Concussion Label in 2011.

She later went on to release a string of popular songs including Whine and Kotch (featuring Charlie Blacks), Pull Up to Mi Bumpa (with Konshens), and Reverse it.
