Rap sensation Nicki Minaj left thousands of fans disappointed yesterday when she was forced to cancel her scheduled appearance at ‘V Festival‘ because of a bout of illness. Her doctors have diagnosed her with having bruised vocal chords, and she has been ordered to rest, making her unable to fly from New York to the UK to fulfill her work commitments.
Festival organisers apologised in a statement: “Miss Minaj‘s band and crew have all arrived in the UK ahead of the performance at the festival this weekend, however as the artist herself boarded her flight from New York on Friday 17th August, she felt unwell again. This is despite having thought she had overcome her vocal chord issues from earlier in the week. Having revisited her doctor she has now been advised to rest for a week, which unfortunately means that she is no longer able to perform at ‘V Festival‘. We wish her a speedy recovery.”
