The rapper Bugzy Malone has revealed he is ‘lucky to be alive’ after he was seriously injured while riding his quad bike.
Malone, 29, whose real name is Aaron Davies, took to social media from his hospital bed to share his injuries with the world and reassure fans he was ‘ok’ after he was thrown off the vehicle in a collision in Bury, Greater Manchester, last Wednesday.
The post comes less than a week after images showed the rapper left dazed and lying on his back on the kerbside from facial injuries after he crashed into an Audi.
Taking to Twitter the musician wrote: ‘They tell me i’m lucky to be alive, I sustained serious injuries and at the time I lost consciousness but what I do remember is the none stop love, and just want to say thanks for all the well wishes and prayers you lot caught me off guard with all the support! #ImOk.’

Malone was left lying on his back on the kerbside after he crashed his bike into an Audi near a T-junction
The rapper had been riding on what appeared to be a motorised trike through Manchester earlier this month when an Audi pulled out of a T-junction giving the grime star no time to react before he ploughed into driver’s door.
Footage from the incident then showed Malone’s bike falling onto its side and he was thrown from his vehicle in front of shocked onlookers who raced to his aid.
The songwriter, famed for his album King Of The North, was left lying on his back on the kerbside with blood pouring from his facial injuries, with one bystander saying it appeared his nose was ‘hanging off’.
Witness Lewis McMullen shared a clip of the performer clearly dazed and surrounded by shattered glass in the aftermath of the collision.

It is unclear if the driver of the Audi, which was left with smashed bodywork and windows, was injured in the collision.
The social media user wrote above the video: ‘Bugzy Malone wrapped up big time in Bury.’
Following the crash, the musician’s management team said he was being monitored in hospital and his injuries were not believed to be life-threatening.
The Bugzy Malone Team tweeted: ‘I can now confirm that @TheBugzyMalone is in a stable condition. He remains in hospital whilst being monitored and assessed.
‘He would love privacy for him and his family while recovering so let us leave him at peace until stable enough to make a comeback on social media.’

They later added: ‘It’s been a very craaazy last 24hrs which was not obviously intended & shows how quick life can turn.
‘I just wanted to say to everyone who has wished and prayed for bugzy & anyone in general, stay safe and keep healthy, keep your loved ones close and live your life! Thank You.’
Shortly after the crash a spokeswoman for Greater Manchester Police said: ‘Shortly before 9.20pm last night police were called to Rochdale Road, Bury, to reports of a collision involving an Audi car and a quad bike.
Following the crash, Greater Manchester Police asked anyone with information to contact them
‘Emergency services attended and the driver of the quad bike – a 29-year-old man – was seriously injured and taken to hospital for treatment.
‘His injuries are not believed to be life-threatening.
‘No arrests have been made and inquiries are ongoing.
‘Anyone with information should contact 101, quoting incident number 2677 of 25/03/20. Reports can also be made anonymously to the independent charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.’
