Lil Wayne performs for the first time since suffering seizures on his private jet


Lil Wayne has performed for attendees of the Electronic Entertainment Expo - just days after suffering what his spokesman described as two minor seizures.

The rapper and Samsung pitchman performed at the company's booth inside the Los Angeles Convention Centre. He delivered such songs as John and No Ceiling as six skateboarders did tricks behind him on a half-pipe stage.

The 33-year-old New Orleans native was hospitalised after his private jet was forced by a medical emergency to land on Monday at Omaha's Eppley Airfield. He was later said to be in a stable condition.

Lil Wayne was originally scheduled to appear on Tuesday at the video game industry's annual trade show, which is attended by more than 50,000 invitees.

The rapper showed no signs of fatigue at E3. After the brief performance, he weaved past the crowd and appeared on a live stream at Twitch's booth to promote his mobile skateboarding game, Sqvad Up.

Lil Wayne was hospitalised in 2013 for seizures. He told a Los Angeles radio station that he has epilepsy.

The Grammy-winning rapper did not mention his health during the Wednesday appearances. He told fans gathered around the stage to "enjoy your life" and "make sure you download my game".
