On Thursday night, the musician had a show at the 4900-capacity venue where he performed ‘Mr. Money With The Vibe’, his debut album.

The concert was, however, cancelled part-way after the crowd breached the doors and security, leaving some of the fans injured.

Police said eight people have been taken to hospital, with four in a critical condition, after finding “a number of people with injuries believed to have been caused by crushing” at Asake ‘s last scheduled gig in the U.K.

BBC quoted one of the crush victims said: “I couldn’t breathe and I completely passed out. I thought I was dead.”

The woman, who was taken to hospital with suspected internal bleeding, said: “I took my last breath and I could not get any more oxygen. I was so scared.”

“Officers are remaining in the area to provide reassurance to the local community in and around Brixton.”
