Rodney Price, better known as grime producer and innovator Terror Danjah, is critically ill and in a coma.
The news comes after his family released a statement over the weekend, confirming that Price's condition is critical. No other information has been shared regarding why, when, and how the artist's health deteriorated. The family has asked for privacy and the doctors have stated "no visitation."
