Friends and family of British grime star NoLay are being called upon to pray for the MC who is currently in hospital in “critical condition” following a car accident.

The fast-rising South London rapper who is also known as Isabella Gotti was seriously injured in a crash abroad on Sunday night but no details of the accident have been revealed so far.

The MC’s Instagram and Twitter accounts have been changed to “Pray For NoLay” in order to galvanise support for the musician.

“It saddens me to have to bring this news to the light, but currently Nolay isn’t in a stable condition and remains unconscious from a car crash abroad," her manager Tyler Jones told The Independent.

"I ask that you all respect Nolay & Nolay’s families right to privacy, the Prayers & Love is much appreciated. #PrayForNolay’s support and Love has been overwhelming over an icon who is a staple in UK Music & culture.

"I won’t be releasing any other details or information till i have ascertained all the correct facts and Nolay’s condition changes, I hope you will all be as strong as we are trying to be in this tough time and continue to Pray For Nolay.”

The initial news was confirmed in message posted by her management on Instagram after the crash.

“We really need for all of NoLay’s supporters to pray for her recovery. Sadly our lovely little angel has been involved in a car accident tonight that has left her in a critical condition,” it read.

In the length of her ten-year career, the musician had toured with American rappers Mobb Deep and featured on Bristol artist Tricky’s 2014 album Adrian Thaws. The musician also acted in Channel 4 drama Top Boy and was recently featured on BBC Radio 1Xtra’s Best of British.

Her management team have expressed anger at friends who have endeavoured to sell stories on her behalf.

“Those that use this sad time as an opportunity to sell stories and capitalise off of this. I will see you in court.”
