August Alsina has been hospitalized after he lost ability to walk. The singer has been dealing with an auto-immune disease for years where his liver is fighting against itself, causing him to take regular trips to the hospital. His most recent stay at a medical facility happened after August woke up one morning and had no feeling in his legs. He was temporarily unable to walk and when he consulted his doctor, he was admitted to the hospital.
August Alsina is in good spirits as he recovers but the severity of his condition has fans jumping to his comments section to wish him well, spreading prayers and positivity.
Although he has not revealed the name of his illness, he did disclose to close friend Jada Pinkett-Smith that the disease is a hereditary condition. As explained in the post’s caption, his current hospital stay has hindered him from performing at this year’s Essence Fest. But, he promised his fans that he has “so much” new music to share with them.
