“I’m going completely deaf in my right ear” – Tank

Tank has opened up to fans about his current health issues and the music star stated he is going completely deaf in his right ear.

The R&B singer took to his Instagram page on May 12, to talk about his predicament and how he is dealing with the situation. He also asked his fans to draw inspiration from his situation and be encouraged by his perseverance. He said:

So, I’m going through something right now and I wanna use my situation to encourage your situation. 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 how or why. Seen the doctors and got MRIs and all that good stuff going on.

Tank further went on to talk about how he is coping and dealing with the situation as well as how he wants others to be inspired by his actions.

It 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 wanna say that to you, too. No matter what you’re going through, no matter where you find yourself, whether your body’s failing you, whether your mind is failing you, whether your spirit is failing you, keep going. Keep pushing”, he added.
