J Hus has returned to social media to apologise for the shows that have been cancelled in the wake of his recent arrest for allegedly carrying a knife.

The rapper was arrested in Stratford, East London on 21 Jun after police stopped a vehicle he was travelling in. A police spokesperson told reporters that “occupants of the vehicle were searched and a man was arrested on suspicion of being in possession of a knife/bladed article”.

Hus – real name Momodou Jallow – was subsequently bailed and is now due to appear at Snaresbrook Crown Court on Friday 20 Jul. As a result of the arrest, he pulled out of Glasgow’s TRNSMT festival last weekend, while organisers of this weekend’s Wireless event in London have announced that Krept & Konan will replace Jallow on their bill.

Posting on Twitter yesterday, the rapper stated: “Been seeing a lot of support from fans, artists and family. I appreciate everything, trust me. Shoutout my team for the work behind the scenes. Also sorry for the cancelled live dates I’ve missed out on. Time to finish the album”.
