Solange Opens Up About Her Quiet Battle With An Autonomic Disorder, Pulls Out Of Show in South Africa Under Doctor’s Orders

Earlier today, Solange revealed the shocking truth about her health, as she announced that she would not be performing at the New Year’s Eve AfroPunk show in Johannesburg, South Africa.


The “Cranes In The Sky” singer took to Instagram on Wednesday to announce the news.


“I can’t put into words how saddened and sorry I am that I am unable to perform for you guys this NYE, there is simply no other place I wanted to be there with my family to bring in 2018 with you,” she explained to her South African fans. “I give you my ABSOLUTE WORD I will come back with AfroPunk and deliver this performance….as it is so extremely important to me to connect with the people who have closely inspired me in so many ways.”



She continued to explain her quiet battle with an autonomic disorder, which the singer failed to specify, but labeled it as a “complicated diagnosis.” Although opening up about the condition has allowed the singer to learn so much about herself, as well as the disorder, the doctor would not clear her to travel for the performance. However, she promised to return to Johannesburg when she’s able and spoke about the positive changes and experiences that she expects in the new year.



“As part of the self-care that I’ve tried to encourage this past year, it needs to start with myself, and I’m looking forward to doing a better job of this 2018,” she wrote. “This past year has been one of the most fulfilling of my life… Performing this record and experiencing the energy exchange with you guys has been astounding, and I’m so excited about continuing to do the work. I feel so absolutely humbled and appreciative to be doing next year. It gives me life.”
