Ninja Man gave Dancehall fans a scare over the weekend when he uploaded a photo wearing an eye patch online.

While many speculated that the Veteran artist had gotten into a fight or an accident, Ninja Man is finally breaking his silence. According to Ninja, the patch is for health and safety reasons as he contracted Pinkeye (Conjunctivitis) in his right eye last week.

“Watch the whole a me fans them a fret ya now,” the Don Gorgon said. “It’s not nothing much, pink eye just got me in one of my eyes, the way how me bad it can’t go for two eyes, because when it is going for people it goes for two eyes.”

Ninja Man was booked to perform along with Alkaline, Singer J and Jahmiel on Monday in Negril for Heatwave, an event featured on RTI 2017, however there’s no confirmation if he took the stage.
