Via the video seen above, the R&B star (born Durrell Babbs) made the surprising revelation of his battle with hearing loss to his nearly 2 million followers on IG.
“I’m going completely deaf in my right ear and I’m kinda losing sound in my left,” he said before describing related symptoms and saying, “All of this out of nowhere, don’t know how or why.”
The 45-year-old revealed he is taking medication to remedy the problem and remains optimistic despite no clear explanation about why the issue arose suddenly.
“It still hasn’t given me a reason to give up. 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.”
