Debunking media reports that he suffered a heart attack, the 34-year-old rapper attributed his collapse to fatigue. He says it was nothing serious and assured his fans he was okay.
“I was in the board room dealing with work reports and projects when I felt dizzy and collapsed. I was rushed to Aga Khan Hospital in Westlands and they referred me to the main hospital on Third Parklands Avenue,” said Big Pin.
“After some tests, I was told I have angina, chest pain caused by reduced blood flow to the heart, which can lead to heart attack. I was admitted for three days and discharged with an order for a week’s bed rest.”
He added, “This was caused by fatigue and lack of rest. I used to travel a lot, record my music and also deal with business at the same time. I never had rest but right now I am doing well and I just went back to work though I was told to slow down and have a good diet.”
