However after being discharged, the 34 year-old rapper attributed his collapse to fatigue.

“I was in the boardroom 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.

“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,” Big Pin said.
