Dancehall star Beenie Man is reportedly recovering in a hospital after he fainted during his mother's funeral.

A video was shared online, showing Beenie Man fainting into the arms of several men during the ceremony.

Beenie's mother, Lilieth Sewell, suffered a stroke back in July and was hospitalized at the University Hospital of the West Indies for approximately two months. After her discharge, she passed away a few weeks later. She was 63.

Prior to her death, Beenie Man had begun honoring his mother's legacy by building a community center in Waterhouse, Jamaica, which will be named after her alongside his late grandfather. 

But Beenie Man's charitable works are on-going, in addition to the community center, his charity, The Beenie Man Foundation, teamed up with sponsors to provide COVID-19 relief packages to people of Jamaica.

"It was a very emotional and nostalgic journey going back to the community and home that bred a spectacular man today. The love and support that was brought out today is nothing short of love and unity within the community," he said.

Our thoughts are with Beenie Man and his family.
