Dancehall superstar Beenie Man reportedly injured his ankle when a taxi collided with a bike he had been riding in the Corporate Area on Monday.
A source close to the ‘Sim Simma’ deejay said that he suffered injuries to his lower leg and was briefly hospitalised, but has since been released.
"Beenie Man stopped to talk to somebody and a taxi man came around the corner and collided with him, injuring his ankle," a source told OBSERVER ONLINE.
