Family Of King Swallow Calls For Blood Donation


The family of four-time calypso king, Sir Rupert “King Swallow” Philo is asking for blood donations to replace what has been used up at the hospital’s blood bank.

Seventy-eight-year-old Sir Rupert was admitted to the St John’s Medical Centre (MSJMC) on Monday with kidney blockage.

His daughter, Shennette Philo, said her father ’s current medical condition is a reoccurrence of what he suffered with in 2017 when a friend launched a campaign to raise funds for his medical expenses.

As for his current state, Shennette said that “he is doing good. He is alert and he is talking and he knows where he is. A little better today than yesterday”.
