TRINIDAD: Is The Mighty Sparrow Really Dead?

Sup Travellers?! There is a rumor going around that the Mighty Sparrow is dead. Well I got some news for you. The Mighty Sparrow is not dead. The legend is alive, not well, but alive. I don't know who started the rumor but it's as false as the hair on the head of a bald head chick. The Trinidad based Facebook page, "Wa Chubble Is Dis" reported the false news today and the internet went into chaos. Even the Trinidad Express tweeted that he was dead. Sigh. Read on.

Multiple sources confirmed that Sparrow is still alive and is receiving treatment at a New York hospital for an undisclosed illness. “Mighty Sparrow is still alive and people should stop spreading false news,” one source said. “His condition has not changed and he remains in the hospital.” On Monday, the 78 year old singer’s family confirmed via a short statement that he is in fact hospitalized in a New York hospital, but did not disclose his illness. He is a diabetic so there could be a possibility that his current state is linked to diabetes. The reports are still fuzzy, but the important thing is that he's alive.

I do hope that the Trinidadian legend gets better and does not in fact die. He is currently in a coma and he has been suffering from Diabetes for quite some time now. He's not in the healthiest of states right now but let's all stop spreading false rumors and just hope and pray that the Mighty Sparrow gets better in a timely manner. Only time will tell. But until then, my name is Trinikid and you've just been informed.
