So Solid star quizzed over attack

A member of controversial chart act So Solid Crew was interviewed by police in connection with the stabbing of a British rapper in Cyprus.

The group's Megaman - real name Dwayne Vincent - was questioned about the incident involving Dizzee Rascal, who was stabbed in the chest, back and buttocks outside a nightclub.

Megaman was interviewed and eliminated from police inquiries, the band's spokeswoman said.

He and several other members of the group had been performing at the resort of Ayia Napa, a favourite destination for fans of dance music.

Police spokesman Steve Theodoulou said Dizzee Rascal - real name Dylan Mills - was released from hospital after treatment.

The stabbing came a few hours after members of two British music groups working in Ayia Napa were involved in a brawl, said Mr Theodoulou.

He said Mills was attacked and stabbed by two men as he was riding his scooter on Monday afternoon.

A statement released by So Solid's publicist said: "Megaman has fully cooperated with the police who have now eliminated him from their inquiries following the interview."

Last month So Solid Crew member Jason Phillips was jailed for four years after being found guilty of possessing a loaded handgun.
