Calypso Rose is resting in a Paris hospital being treated for a case of 'gout' but her management says, there is nothing to worry about.

Gout is a form of inflammatory arthritis characterised by recurrent attacks of a red, tender, hot, and swollen joint. 

Her manager Jean Michel Gilbert said she was admitted on Friday and will be discharged on Tuesday.

He said the decision to have her seek medical attention was simply precautionary.

He said there is no need for alarm and that she remains in high spirits.

This is also backed by a video clipping we received from another source, showing Calypso Rose singing one of her most popular songs, "Fire Fire" to the delight of hospital staff.


Earlier this year Calypso Rose won the 'World Album of the Year' award at the Victoire De La Musique Award Ceremony in France, for her album "Far From Home".

The award is considered the French equivalent of a Grammy Award.

Her 2017 Carnival offering "Leave me alone" was a major hit and received widespread praise.

She is scheduled to perform in France and across Europe soon.
