Zoe Fennessy suffers an epileptic seizure instantly when she hears singer Ne-Yo’s vocals. The 26-year-old mother has gone as far as removing a considerable amount of brain matter in hopes of easing the disorder.
The seizures make her freeze, vomit and unable to react to the world around her.
The healthcare assistant has to wear earphones whenever she goes shopping just in case the ‘Let’s Go’ singer’s tunes are played in stores.
She has been clinically diagnosed with ‘musicogenic seizures’ which are triggered by the tone of Ne-Yo’s voice.
Surgeons removed part of her left frontal lobe in June in a bid to stop the affliction.
But the surgery was not successful and doctors now fear she may have the condition forever.
Fennessy has been unable to work for six months due to her unfortunate condition. “I don’t dislike Ne-Yo or his music, it just dislikes me unfortunately.”
