(Trinidad Express) The Mighty Sparrow (Slinger Francisco) is still alive and in fact has been responding to the presence of family members at his bedside although he remains in a coma. The Calypso King of the World’s son, Anthony Francisco told the Express yesterday that his father is improving slowly and, “Very much alive. No matter what you hear from anybody or anywhere, do not react to or believe any of it until you hear it from his wife or his children.”
Francisco said the constant calls from people saying they heard Sparrow had died and all the postings on social media is upsetting the family who just want to focus on prayers and positive energies towards Sparrow recovering. “Please do not believe the rumours and jump to conclusions. If there is any change whatsoever you will hear it from us,” Francisco said. Margaret Francisco, Sparrow’s wife, said her husband is recovering and had started coughing yesterday evening.
