- R&B superstar Tank revealed that he is slowly going deaf on a video on Instagram
- According to the 45-tear-old hunk, he cannot tell what caused the problem and he has already done an MRI and is on medication
- His fellow music group members, celebrities and fans showered him with encouragement and promised to lift him in prayers
The former US TGT music group member Tank disclosed that he is slowly losing hearing ability in both ears.
Tank, who was in the same music group with Tyrese Gibson and Ginuwine, has been in the music industry for more than two decades and his latest revelation had fans flocking to his Instagram page to wish him well and a quick recovery.
The 45-year-old shared a video on his Instagram page talking about his situation and using it to encourage people to keep fighting, regardless of how tough things hit them.
This is what he shared online:
"So I am going through something right now and I wanted to use my situation to encourage you. I am going completely deaf on my right ear and kinda losing sound on my left ear, I am dizzy and can't walk in a straight line and all this from nowhere, I don't know how or why.
Seeing doctors, done an MRI and is on medication. It still has not given me a reason to give up. Still hasn't given me a reason to stop doing and be who I want to be. Keep going, keep pushing,'' he said.
He, however, shared an update after getting his MRI results. He said the doctors had not found anything serious with his brain and is hopeful that he will get the proper medication that will enable him to continue doing what he loves the most.
Here are some of the comments from the post:
R&B singer Keri Hilson said:
"Aw, man Tank I am so gonna lift you up in prayer. I know you are no stranger to adversity but we all have moments of fear and doubt. Praying for strength and courage as you fight this battle. 'Force Of Nature' always."
His former group member Ginuwine said:
"I love you, bro, calling you tonight, you got this."
Tyrese Gibson said:
"I have not hit the like button, I’m on my knees praying for you King. Jesus is real and he will reveal all that is happening to you. Man, this hurts I could not imagine, stay strong T."
"Always a positive spirit, lifting you in prayer brother."
"Oh no! Lifting you in prayers, we still need you to make the good music, this too shall pass."
In positive news for people with hearing disabilities, Briefly News recently spotlighted Sjava, who's making his music more accessible to deaf people. The musician took to social media to share that his music videos will have sign language interpretation from now on.
The move was inspired by Sjava wanting deaf people to also get a chance to appreciate his craft.
His post read:
“Good morning I have always wanted to do this it’s finally happening going forward all my music videos will include sign language for deaf people to understand as well what I am saying in my music.”
