Singer Tank has revealed that he is going completely deaf in one ear and losing hearing in the other. Taking to his Instagram account on Wednesday, the “When We” singer 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.”

Although he is going through serious health problems, the singer said he is not giving up, and would want others to do the same no matter the challenges they face. “No matter what you’re going through. No matter where you find yourself. Whether your body is failing you, whether your mind is failing you, whether your spirit is failing you. Keep going, keep pushing,” the former TGT singer said.

Tank went on to say that he will update his fans about his health. “Imma document my process just to show you the fight, just to show you that you’re still in it — we’re still in it,” he said. “So, much love to you, and let’s keep fighting.”

Some of his celebrity friends sent him prayers under his post. Bishop T.D. Jakes wrote, “Praying for you bro,” while Daron from 112 commented, “Keep fighting bro! Prayers up!.”
