Etana suffered a health scare at home, while she was packing to prepare her return to Jamaica when she felt dizzy and fainted.
Andre Morris, her husband and manager explained :”I called 911 while trying to revive her, and after a few minutes, the paramedics came and they took care of her, and put her in the ambulance and rushed her to the hospital.”
The doctors made sure she was okay before releasing her. She is currently home, resting but confirms that she will be ready for her upcoming concert, Stop Ebola.
Etana released a statement to reassure her fans that she is well: “I just want my fans to know that I am alright, and I will be strong enough to perform at the private Stop Ebola and Build For the Future concert. The doctors said it was just a combination of dehydration and exhaustion, just stress. At the time when I regained consciousness, I was not afraid, I didn’t know what was going on. The thing is, a few weeks ago, I had started feeling a pain in my side, not like a regular back pain, it felt like one of my organs was tightening up. I didn’t realise I wasn’t drinking enough water, and I wasn’t eating properly. I just keep going, I never stopped to rest. Maybe I was too stressed and did not take any time to rest, I didn’t stop moving …; I just need to take better care of myself.”
