Ne-Yo’s Vocals Gave Her Seizures So She Removed Part Of Her Brain
A mum who suffers seizures every time she hears Ne-Yo’s vocals has undergone surgery to have part of her brain removed.
Zoe Fennessy suffered an epileptic seizure within seconds of hearing his voice, making her freeze, vomit and unable to react to the world around.
She has to wear earphones whenever she goes shopping just in case the singer’s tunes are played in stores.
She has been formally diagnosed with ‘musicogenic seizures’ which are triggered by the tone of Ne-Yo’s voice.
Surgeons removed part of her left frontal lobe in a bid to stop the affliction, but it didn’t work and doctors think she will have the condition forever.
“I don’t dislike Ne-Yo or his music, it just dislikes me unfortunately. I’ll be walking around the supermarket doing my food shopping and I have to put my earphones in to listen to my own music just in case it comes on. It’s the same with most shops. I have to walk in with my ear phones in at first just to make sure they don’t have Ne-Yo on. If he ever releases a greatest hits album it’s going to be a nightmare. Whenever I hear the first few beats of the song I have to drop whatever I am doing and run. People might think it is funny – and I can laugh at it myself – but it has taken over my life. It’s ruined my life.”
