He’s been forced to cancel his UK tour which was due to start today
Professor Green fractured his neck this morning after falling ill from a seizure.
The London rapper, real name Stephen Manderson, was due to start his latest UK tour in Cardiff tonight (February 12) but he has now cancelled all of his scheduled live dates.
Green detailed the incident in a trio of posts on Instagram earlier today, where he uploaded a picture of himself strapped onto a stretcher and in a head brace.
“I had [a] seizure this morning which resulted in a fall while I was packing for tour,” he wrote. “Depending on how you look at this fall I was extremely lucky. I fractured vertebrae in my neck and subsequently had to cancel my tour that was due to start today.
Green confirmed that he would be back in the winter with “a bigger tour,” before reflecting further on the state of his health.
“I’ve had two further seizures and am lucky I didn’t break my neck. Really fucking lucky,” he wrote. “Thanks for bearing with me.
“Most importantly thank you to our NHS, heroes amongst men (and women).”
