Fellow entertainer and calypsonian David 'Kid Site' Piggott delivered the news and message on behalf on Mighty Gabby via his Facebook page.
"Just letting the FB family and the entertainment fraternity know
that Dr Anthony Gabby Carter has been hospitalised since Thursday.
Here is a statement in poetry from him:
Gm Nation Family Let me officially state that I am hospitalised sincThursdayay at QEH ward A 5 room 13.
Thanks for all the well wishes from family, friends and fans.
Please dont ask what happened yet
Since I'm not at all sure
Here we seek a remedy
An answer or a cure
Sir Don's daughter (our sweet Julie)
Has already contacted me
To her and all her still here kin
I offer deepest sympathy
Since I'm a public figure
(Like my friend Santy)
When all the tests and so on is done
You will know what happened to me
Please Do Not Panic
I am confident
That I will be fine
If not then surely you must know
I had a wonderful time
On this here earth
( Sometimes giving birth )
To songs that are well known
Some got labelled as classics
Others made some people groan
All in all in these fifty odd years
Of singing and composing
(Playing a bit of guitar as well)
I enjoyed everything
If it turns out that all is well
Then do rejoice with me
But if the opposite is the truth
Face the reality
With joy and bliss
If I made you happy
If I offended you in any way
My deepest apology.
Written December 14th 2018.
From 7:05 am to 7:22 am. By Dr. Anthony Gabby Carter."
