R&B singer Tank took to Instagram on Wednesday to reveal that he’s going deaf. In his video post, the singer listed his symptoms and how’s he’s addressing the recent health scare.
“So I’m going through something right now and I want to use my situation to encourage your situation,” Tank said. “I’m going completely deaf in my right ear and I’m kind of losing sound in my left. I’m dizzy, can’t walk a straight line. All of this out of nowhere. Don’t know why or how. I’ve seen the doctors, got the MRI, all that good stuff going on…medication, all of that.”
Despite the prognosis, Tank maintained an optimistic view and said he intends to move forward with his life.
“It still hasn’t given me a reason to give up,” he continued. “Still hasn’t given me a reason to stop feeling like I can do and be everything that I’ve set out to be. The goals are still the same — to be great, to be the greatest. And I want to say that to you too.”
Tank used the video post to encourage his followers not to give up on themselves no matter the circumstances and let fans know that he will document his battle and hopeful recovery.
