Rapper Heize was rushed to hospital following her performance at the 2017 SBS Gayo Daejun
Despite previously being diagnosed with pharyngitis, Heize decided to honour her commitments and perform at the 2017 SBS Gayo Daejun on December 25 even though she was in poor health. According to a representative for the artist, Heize had been exhibiting symptoms such as vomiting and a high fever and ultimately collapsed immediately after her performance at the end-of-the-year music program. Heize was rushed to hospital after her performance, where she remains this morning.
Heize‘s representative also said that the singer’s hectic schedule “may have taken a physical toll on her health”, and that she “will have to receive treatment” as the symptoms of her previously diagnosed pharyngitis have worsened.
Heize elected to undergo surgery on December 26. Her spokesperson said “Heize‘s progress must be monitored, but it appears that she will not be able to carry out her scheduled activities in the immediate future.”
2017 has been a huge year for Heize, with the solo artist releasing a string of hits including ‘You, Clouds, Rain‘, ‘Don’t You Know‘, and ‘Star‘. She also won the Best Hip Hop and Urban Music award for ‘Don’t You Know‘ and Best Vocal Performance Female Solo for ‘You, Clouds, Rain‘ at the 2017 MNet Asian Music Awards, as well as being named as a Top 10 Artist at the 2017 MelOn Music Awards.
Heize is currently receiving treatment in hospital. We at Officially KMusic wish Heize a quick recovery!
