Dancehall legend Beenie Man was noticeably absent from Toronto’s OVO Fest where he was scheduled to perform on Saturday. Turns out, Beenie was denied a Canadian visa after contracting the Zika virus.

Beenie Man also shared a photograph on Instagram of himself undergoing blood tests. “No visa fi mi Canada show,” the Jamaican singer wrote. “The same Zika mosquito gi mi dengue. Blood test, injections, pills. Wi a hol firm still.”

Ticketmaster confirmed Beenie Man’s condition, telling customers in a statement:

“Due to immigration issues Beenie Man will no longer be able to perform as part of OVO Fest 2016 on Saturday July 30th at TD Echo Beach in Toronto. In his place we have booked a slew of surprise special guests and of course Machel Montano will still headline as planned, with special guests of his own.”
