Fast rising dancehall sensation Gully Bop recently underwent a successful surgery for the removal of a hernia.
The ‘Every Gal Want A Wuk Affi Mi’ deejay is now at home resting after being discharged from the hospital following his surgery.
The artiste had been at the Medical Associates Hospital in St Andrew, where he had surgery to remove hernia on Sunday night (Jan. 11).
Sources close to the deejay told Hype Life Magazine that he was released from the hospital on the following Tuesday and the surgery was a success.
“He was released on Tuesday and the surgery was a success, so he is now at home resting and recovering,” the source said.
“Under doctors advice, he won’t be doing any shows for the rest of this month, but will be back on the road starting February, ” the source added.
With bookings going as far as July this year, Supreme Promotions’ Isaiah Laing said this was the perfect time for Gully Bop to remove the hernia that has been bothering him for some time.
“He had it for quite a while. When he came in to us he told us about it and we decided to do it after the busy period. Now we have a lot of bookings coming in,” Laing told media reporters.
So far, there is a confirmed booking for the artiste in Barbados, while his management team is in discussions with promoters from Guyana, Trinidad, St Vincent and St Martin.
There have also been calls from Canada, England, the United States and Europe according to Isaiah Laing.
With these numerous bookings coming in, Laing maintains that Gully Bop is not just an Internet sensation who rose to stardom a few months ago.
“The man big all over the world. We drop a new song last week and in two days it get 120,000 hits. It is not a fake thing, Gully Bop will be around for a long time,” Laing said.
Gully Bop has been making headlines since going viral on social media in November last year.
In December, the deejay also put on a solid performance at the Sting at Jamworld in Portmore, Jamaica.
