Nigerian rapper, Chibuzor Nelson Azubuike better known as Phyno, has denied being a sickle cell patient.
This comes after a fan via the micro-blogging platform alleged that the rapper was a sickle cell patient.
The fan wrote, “Since I heard Phyno has sickle cell the love tripled, I pray God grants him the strength to keep fighting.”
Reacting to the tweet, Phyno wrote, “Lol. No, I’m not sickle cell. Love to everyone fighting it tho.”
Sickle cell anemia is a form of inherited blood disorder that affects the red blood cells, turning them from round flexible discs into stiff and sticky sickle cells.
