Dancehall star Beenie Man was forced to miss his headlining performance at Drake's OVO Fest Saturday night (July 30), after contracting the Zika virus.

The Jamaican native took to Instagram to detail his illness, revealing that the Canadian government had denied his visa after finding out that he had tested positive for the virus.

Beenie Man said the same mosquito had also given him Dengue Fever, and is currently receiving a treatment regimine of "blood tests, injections, [and] pills."

He was scheduled to perform for a co-headlining set Saturday night alongside Machel Montano.
