Veteran Dancehall artiste Ninja Man was diagnosed with a serious heart problem on Tuesday that requires emergency heart surgery.
Desmond Ballentine more popularly known as Ninja Man is one of the veterans in the dancehall fraternity.
Ninja Man is currently on trial along with his son, Janeil Ballentine, and a man known as Dennis Clayton for the shooting death of Ricardo Johnson.
Johnson was gunned down in the Waltham Park vicinity in 2009.
During the court proceeding on Friday while one of the witnesses was giving evidence Ninja Man started complaining about an intense pain in his stomach and was rushed to the Kingston Public Hospital (KPH).
According to Ninja Man’s doctor, there is need of a ‘vascular intervention’ because there is evidence in the deejay’s heart of severely reduced blood flow (ischemia) to an area of heart muscle caused by one or more narrowed coronary arteries. Ninja Man also needs to do an angioplasty because his pulse rate is extremely low at 40-. The average pulse rate for a healthy individual is approximately 90-.
If the surgery is successful recovery time will be approximately 3 – 4 months.
Ninja Man’s lawyer Valerie Neita-Robinson made the announcement about the deejay’s medical condition.
However, despite the news of Ninja Man’s medical condition, the judge has ruled that the case will continue.
Ninja Man’s legal team is working assiduously to end the deejay’s case quickly because of his medical condition.
