The Urban Islandz website reports:”Get-well wishes have begun to pour in for Reggae/Dancehall icon Sizzla, after he  reportedly sustained a broken ankle, following a motorcycle accident on Saturday.

The report says: “Sources inside Sizzla‘s camp confirmed with Urban Islandz on Tuesday that the singer was ‘out and stuntin’ on one of his motorcycles along Mona Road in Kingston when he lost control and broke his right ankle.”

One source told Jamaican radio station Irie FM: “Sizzla Kalonji’s injury was severe, and he remains hospitalized in Kingston.

“Amid the well-wishers, there were several criticisms for the 43-year-old Rastafarian on the radio station’s Facebook and Instagram pages, by persons who claimed that he was too old to be doing motorcycle stunts.”

One follower wrote: “Dam Sizzla. He’s a big man he need to leave those stunts to them youths. Blessings and full recovery though.”

Others “admonished the August Town native for failing to learn from his past experience in 2011, when he sustained several broken bones after being hit from his motorbike in Runaway Bay, St Ann and had to be flown by helicopter from the St Ann’s Bay hospital for treatment in Kingston”.


One upset fan said: “He was in the same bike accident in 2011 for doing stunts. Seems like he never learns.”

Another fan said he was “disappointed and sorry” to hear the news and that “he hoped Sizzla gets well soon, and stops doing ‘those crazy stunts now’.”

Another reader posted on Instagram: “DJ go and buy a Prado and leave bike alone. My dad always told me if u want one hand or one food go get a bike.”

The report added: “The accident will likely force Sizzla to cancel some of his upcoming shows slated for the United States and the Caribbean.

“He is booked for shows in Barbados, Boston, and Orlando as well as the Thanksgiving Reggae Festival on November 30 in Florida.”
