Dancehall deejay Beenie Man is today a proud father as his daughter Desha ‘Crystal’ Davis whom he has with former dancehall queen Carlene graduated from high school.
What makes this fete so sweet for the self-proclaimed king of the dancehall is that Crystal who was born premature with underdeveloped lungs was not given great odds by her doctor to live. The doc back then told the parents it was unlikely she would live past her third birthday.
Crystal was treated in a hospital in the United States where she stayed in an incubator for nine months.
“One doctor say she nah live past three. When she turned 12, her lungs developed. She lucky,” he wrote on his Instagram page.
Carlene also expressed pride in her daughter’s achievement but unlike her father, she is not looking back on the days when she was sick, but instead of focusing on what she is yet to accomplish.
