August Alsina has been missing from the R&B game for the past few months (with the exception of a few features) and although he has still been touring and performing he’s been making headlines still after collapsing on stage during a performance in NYC which left him in a three-day coma and brawling backstage during an anti-violence concert. This past weekend was no different as he informed the world that he’s legally blind in one eye and losing sight in another.
August took to Instagram to reveal to fans what he’s been going through and reminded us to not take simple, natural things for granted because it can all be taken away at an instant. He is taking extreme measures to ensure that he’s able to keep his sight.
Check out his Instagram post below:
So I have this eye disease.. Blind in my left, and losing vision in my right. In order to prevent my eyesight from deteriorating ihad to do this surgery. This shit is beyond painful & Life be throwin’ a nigxa curve balls but what I’ve gained from it all is priceless… A lot of things that are so natural to us in life (like waking up and being able to see ????) we can take it for granted. Thank God the OG for allowing me to see.. The good the bad the ugly, I’m just glad to see????
We’re definitely going to keep August in our prayers. He’s been through some rough times so we hope he’s able to pull through this!
