In an Instagram post, the founder of Solid Grooves conveyed, "After 6 months of fighting, I leave the hospital officially in remission with no cancer in my body. To every person that sent me the support, energy & strength to fight, I thank you from the bottom of my heart & to the staff @royalmarsden for literally saving my life I will forever be in your debt. Thank you so much."
Earlier, he had disclosed his diagnosis of central nervous system lymphoma in June, a rare cancer affecting the spine and brain, which led to his hospitalization for treatment.
In a surprising turn of events, in September, he delighted attendees at the Solid Grooves closing party in Ibiza, where he landed at DC-10 to perform a set.
As a former cover star of Mixmag, Michael Bibi stands out as one of the most popular DJs in contemporary British dance music. Over the past few years, he has consistently sold out premier clubs worldwide with his Solid Grooves and ELOVATE party series, securing bookings on prominent festival stages.
In addition to the update on his cancer-free status, he shared, "I’m still very tired, I’m on a lot of meds, my body hurts & my hair's all gone… but I’m excited to get home, process, heal & prepare for the future with you all."
