Rygin King management team is dismissing claims emerging on several websites that the deejay is paralysed.
“The artiste is not paralysed. I cannot go into specifics about his medical condition but the deejay is responding favourably to treatment and he has tingling in his legs…and he has feeling and is responding to stimulus in his lower legs and extremities. We want people to stop the rumour-spreading and speculation about the deejay’s health at this time,” a source close to the deejay told the Jamaica Observer yesterday.
