Katy B has been forced to withdraw from this weekend’s MTV Crashes Derry concert due to the death of her brother.

AfroJack, Professor Green and MNEK are all still due to perform in Ebrington Square on Friday.

It is unclear whether Katy B will be replaced.

The British pop-star has cancelled all up and coming appearances and interview after her brother, Andrew, died this week.

Katy B, whose real name is Kathleen Anne Brien, took to Instagram to communicate her heartbreak over her brother’s death.

“This morning, the most beautiful soul I ever knew passed away. He had a cardiac arrest and his heart stopped. I am still in total and utter shock. My one and only brother Andrew Brien did not deserve to die this young.

“He was the kindest person, he was never spiteful, judgemental or rude. He had banter for days and I still can’t even believe I will never hear that loud laugh or see that Cheshire cat smile again that made whatever worry I had on my mind dissolve.”

MTV Crashes will run from September 19-21.
