Rapper Cannibal suffers heart attack
Coast based rapper Cannibal – real name Ralph Masai - suffered a mild heart attck a few weeks back. He was just hours from his South Africa where he was recovering from attending the Channel O Africa Music Awards.
Cannibal, who jetted into the country from Johannesburg on November 11, spent a few hours enjoying the Kenyan climate before the attack set in.
The rapper famed for his hit track I Wish started convulsing in his parent’s house in the Kizingo area before his older brother called for a cab to rush him to hospital. The Lil Wayne look-a-like was then admitted at the Pandya Memorial Hospital where he was put under a drip for four days.
“I’m lucky to be alive,” Cannibal said.
The doctors said the attack was caused by the change of climate and smoke in the respiratory system. His hospitalisation led him to postpone his interview with Channel O’s Diary Piece of his life in Mombasa.
