He even suffered an accident in America and had to opt out of The Slam! tour.Honey has shot only six episodes of Raw Star. Other celebrities like Himesh Reshammiya, Meet Brothers, Salim Suleiman have been mentoring the show in his place. But when Honey informed the makers that he won’t be available for two months, the makers approached Himesh to take over the mantle.

He will now mentor the singers for the remaining four episodes.In his first visit, the composer had signed three singers of the show to record for him. Meanwhile, Honey Singh’s team posted a message on the singer’s official Twitter handle, requesting fans to pray for him. “All the Fans and Well Wishers, We would like to inform all of you that Yo Yo would be out of action for some time because of his illness and doctor has advised him to be strictly on bed rest.

Keep supporting and loving apka apna Yo Yo Honey Singh”. We wish the singer speedy recovery.
