British rapper Casyo ‘Krept’ Johnson has broken his silence on social media following reports that he was stabbed at BBC Radio 1Xtra Live in Birmingham this weekend.

West Midlands Police announced on Twitter earlier today (October 6) that “a man sustained a slash wound during an assault at around 10pm [yesterday] and was treated by on site medical staff.”

They later urged anyone to come forward who may have information regarding the attack.

Soon after the police reports, Krept’s musical collaborator Karl ‘Konan’ Wilson issued a mini response Twitter, writing: “Bros good”.

But now, Krept himself has confirmed that he’s safe and sound, despite growing concern from his online fanbase.

He posted on Twitter: “My people thanks for the messages Im good, ill be back in no time. God was with me trust me. Cant keep a good man down [sic]”.

This update was met by a flood of support from Krept’s followers, with one individual replying: “Glad to hear it man. Praying for a speedy recovery and more blessings for you.”

Another fan shared, “Good to hear from you and that you are well my brother. Allah was with you, protecting you.”

Other artists appearing at BBC Radio 1Xtra Live this weekend included Wizkid, Aitch, DaniLeigh and Ms Banks.
