Benji thanks fans for their support

Benji Webbe has taken to Facebook to thank everyone for the messages of concern he received after being attacked in his hometown on the way home from a party.

Thank you all so much for all your concern and well wishes, makes all the difference and means the world to us, as you can imagine This is been quite an ordeal! Julie fortunately was not physically hurt but the whole thing has taken a toll on us both for me to be slashed across the face and the throat. For Julie to be dragged around and spat at by a group of women who glassed me, Just know that we will rise above this and remain positive and in love. Newport is my home town and I still love it and the community we have. Big up!

While at the party earlier in the evening, Benji was asked to get up and do a tune. He had clearly prepared with this amazing cover of “Life on Mars”, a tribute to David Bowie who passed away earlier this month. It’s a wonder to behold!

We wish Benji and Julie all the very best for a quck recovery.
