Award winning British rapper MIST (who came to our San Isidro club in
) has been taken to hospital after being shot in the leg at a luxury Algarve villa during a suspected robbery. Reports say that 27-year-old’s passport, phones and jewels during the apparent break-in.
Birmingham-born Mist, real name Rhys Thomas Sylvester, was in the upmarket Quinta do Lago resort in Portugal. Mist has been performing at various events in Portugal, including the Algarve Afro Nation Festival. He was taken to Faro hospital by two friends.
Hospital officials and police have yet to release information about the condition of the rapper, who is a Mobo award winner. Mist's February 2018-released second EP Diamond in the Dirt peaked at number four on the UK Albums Chart.
Our thoughts are with Mist and we wish him a speedy recovery.
