Chibuzor Nelson Azubuike, popularly known as the Nigerian Rapper Phyno, has denied having sickle cell disease.

This occurs when a fan claimed on the microblogging website that the rapper had sickle cell disease.

The fan wrote, “Since I heard Phyno has sickle cell the love tripled, I pray God grants him the strength to keep fighting.”

In response to the tweet, Phyno wrote, “Lol. No, I’m not a sickle cell. Love to everyone fighting it tho.”

Sickle cell anaemia is a type of genetic blood condition that affects the red blood cells, causing them to change from flexible round discs into hard, gooey sickle cells.

Sensational skit maker, Sabinus got fans speculating and wondering what he has in store after he was spotted with the renowned rapper, Phyno.

The skit sensation took to his Facebook page and shared some pictures of himself and a picture with Phyno.

In the photo, Phyno who held a piece of paper could be seen pointing at it with his finger while Sabinus looked closely.
