Rapper Krept has said he is “good” and will be “back in no time” after he was assaulted backstage at a BBC Radio 1Xtra live event in Birmingham.
The sold-out Saturday night show at the Arena Birmingham was brought to a close early following the incident.
The rapper, one half of duo Krept and Konan, suffered a slash wound. He tweeted on Sunday: “Can’t keep a good man down.”
Police said medical help was given on site and he did not go to hospital.
The show was due to include performances from Aitch, French Montana, Ms Banks and headliner Wizkid.
The BBC said it was sorry to call off the event but safety was a priority.
In a statement, the corporation added: “We are upset and saddened that something like this should happen to a guest at one of our events and we remain in close contact and continue to offer our full support.”
Krept’s manager Docta Cosmic and Konan both tweeted on Saturday night, saying: “Bro’s good.”
West Midlands Police said: “It is understood that a man sustained a slash wound during the assault. He was treated by on site medical staff.”
Security staff alerted officers to the assault, which happened at about 22:00 BST on Saturday. Police are appealing for information.
1Xtra Live was billed as an “unmissable night” with a “mix of emerging and established artists”. Tickets had sold out – the Arena Birmingham has a capacity of 15,800.
The gig was broadcast live across 1Xtra and Radio 1, but the stream ended when the event was called off.
