Update on Mushking's health
“Hey good people,
Thank you for all the DMs and well wishes for King.
Some of you have obviously been asking what MFS or Miller Fisher Syndrome is. First of all, for those who don't know, King has been in hospital for the past week. It all started by him waking up and having blurry vision and noticed loss of balance as well, which progressed to difficulty in breathing, slurry speech, and a bit of feeling like his face was numb. He was seen by a couple of specialists. A lot of tests were run. And in the end, a team of neurologists diagnosed him with Miller Fisher Syndrome, which is a rare variant of Guillain-Barré Syndrome, which is an auto immune reaction where the body's immune system produces antibodies to destroy infectious agent's but the antibodies produced also cross react with normal cell structures and attack them as well, demylinating the nerves" reads apart of Xtatic's post.
She added that currently Mush is still in hospital being monitored because of the difficulties in breathing he has developed.
"So currently, he is still in hospital, closely being monitored, especially because of the difficulty in breathing at times. And for those texting and calling, he can't read the texts because he still can't see. But can hear. And also he can't move without assistance. And he is in HDU and they've not allowed any phone, hence can't pick any calls as of the moment. And probably won't be available for some time. Thank you for your well wishes. Have a great week ahead” reads an update from Xtatic.
Mushking also known as King Muriuki is the creative mind behind Gilad Millo’s music videos as well as other artistes like Stella Mwangi and many others. He is also the man behind the shooting of XYZ show.
Xtatic is one of the best Kenyan female rappers and has had a fair share of ups and downs music wise. It was once rumored that she had gone completely broke after she had a stint with Sony Music stable in South Africa and later on Rockstar4000 where she had a fallout with both managements.
She once opened up about losing her property to auctioneers when things got bad financially and she had to take care of her two siblings together with her daughter, after her mother died.
