British rapper Bugzy Malone has told fans he’s “lucky to be alive” after he was injured in a quad biking accident last week.
Bugzy – real name Aaron Davis – was involved in a collision with a car in Bury, Greater Manchester on Wednesday, after which he was taken to hospital with serious injuries.
He has now given fans a reassuring update on his condition, posting on social media for the first time since the crash.
“They tell me I’m lucky to be alive, I sustained serious injuries and at the time I lost consciousness,” the 29-year-old wrote. “But what I do remember is the [non-stop] love, and just want to say thanks for all the well wishes and prayers you lot caught me off guard with all the support!”
He ended the message with the hashtag “#ImOK”, alongside images of the aftermath of the accident, and the injuries he sustained to his face.

Last week, his team told fans that the artist was in a “stable condition”, tweeting: “I can now confirm that [Bugzy Malone] is in a stable condition. He remains in hospital whilst being monitored and assessed.

They later said: “It’s been a very craaazy last 24hrs which was not obviously intended & shows how quick life can turn.
“I just wanted to say to everyone who has wished and prayed for bugzy & anyone in general, stay safe and keep healthy, keep your loved ones close and live your life! Thank You.”
