In May 2009, MOBO Award winning UK rap artist Professor Green, real name Stephen Manderson, was left fighting for his life after a violent assault outside a night club, in which he was stabbed in the neck with a broken bottle.

Earlier today MTV reported the Metropolitan Police’s confirmation that convicted attacker Anthony Jones, found guilty last year of grievous bodily harm with intent, has been jailed for eight years.

After being attacked, Manderson reportedly phoned family members “to ‘say goodbye’ after the stabbing, was taken to hospital and has been left with a six-inch scar”.

“A spokesman for the Metropolitan Police confirmed yesterday that Jones had been jailed for eight years at Snaresbrook Crown Court, after judge John Lafferty sentenced him for the “premeditated attack” on the star,” MTV reports.
