In March this year, Fullstop shared some devastating news with his fans. He revealed that he had been diagnosed with tuberculosis, which had caused his left lung to collapse.
This had made it difficult for him to carry out his daily activities, and he had to adjust to living with only one lung for the rest of his life.
Despite undergoing treatment, his condition worsened in 2022 when he was diagnosed with TB affecting his throat, which has further impacted his health.
The reggae MC expressed his gratitude to his fans and supporters who have been with him throughout his health struggles. He hinted that he may be retiring from his career as an MC, given the challenges he now faces due to his illness.
Fullstop also explained that unlike the liver, which can regenerate itself, the lungs are unable to heal themselves. This means that he will have to adjust to living with one lung for the rest of his life.
