Australian singer Mandawuy Yunupingu has been airlifted to hospital in Darwin after collapsing at his home.
The indigenous star, who fronts the Yothu Yindi band, was flown to the Royal Darwin Hospital on Tuesday (04Nov12) after falling sick at his property in East Arnhem Land.
The 56 year old has suffered renal problems over the last few years and undergoes regular dialysis treatment.
No more details about his condition were available as Wenn went to press, but Yothu Yindi's former manager, Alan James, insists the singer is responding well to treatment and will be allowed to leave the hospital in a few days' time.
The health scare comes just days after Yunupingu performed with his bandmates during their induction into the Australian Recording Industry Association (Aria) Hall of Fame in Sydney last week (ends02Dec12).
James says, "I can only surmise that all of the exertion of the last week and all the excitement was a bit too much. He did have to do dialysis in Sydney last week, on Monday, Wednesday and Thursday. I guess we are just hoping that he didn't pick up anything nasty in the Sydney hospital."
