August Alsina Shocking Reveal: I’m Going Blind

August Alsina informed fans on Friday that due to an eye disease, he is “blind in his left eye” and “losing vision on his right.” OMG.

He said that he had an eye operation to prevent his eyesight from deteriorating further.

August wrote on Instagram:

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????

Wishing August the best. The BET Best New Artist for 2014 is only 22. This puts a lot in perspective on what is really important in life. We take so many things for granted.
