The Jamaica Star is reporting that International reggae artist Anthony B collapsed shortly after his performance at a Dallas, Texas, nightclub last Saturday night. The artist has since been hospitalized at the Methodist Dallas Medical Center in Texas.
According to the deejay’s publicist, Ronnie Tomlinson, Anthony B is alert and is awaiting an official diagnosis from the doctors. He tweeted the following message to his fans:
And thanks a lot to all the fans who did sayprayer for i.. and send a word of bless and rest up!!! keep on loving #JAH

“At this time there is no confirmation from the doctors as to the exact diagnosis, but we strongly believe that Anthony B has been overworked and strongly suspect dehydration,” she told THE STAR.
Tomlinson went on to say that The Tease Her artiste’s busy schedule may have been a factor in his illness.
“His schedule has been crazy. He’s been travelling to Europe, Africa, the UK, India, Australia and the United States, with barely a break in-between,” she said.
According to Tomlinson, Anthony B was also scheduled to leave for Europe today for a series of shows.
“He was supposed to go to Europe until about mid-November. I can see that at least the first two weeks might have to be put off,” she told THE STAR.
It is still unknown how long he will be admitted for. The artist has been busy promoting his album Freedom Fighter, which was released earlier this year.
