American singer, Beyonce’s sister, Solange, has canceled her performance at the AfroPunk festival in South Africa which is slated for the New Year’s Eve.
The singer on Wednesday took to her Instagram page to announce the cancelation of her performance at the event stating that the latest development is due to her health struggles.
The Seat at the Table singer explained that she had to back out because of her battle with an autonomic disorder which she has been “quietly treating” for the last five months.
She wrote: “Wrote, deleted and re wrote this like 5 times …,
“Still not sure what exactly or how much I want to share … However it’s so important to me for the people in South Africa, a place that has tremendous meaning to me and that has given me SO SO MUCH, to know why I won’t be performing at Afro Punk this NYE.”
Solange went on in the post to reveal that she’s been dealing with the autonomic nervous disorder that can create issues with heart-rate regulation, blood pressure, body temperature, cognitive impairment, and more — for the last several months.
She added: “It been a journey that hasn’t been easy on me … Sometimes I feel cool, and other times not so cool at all.”
She explained that her performance cancelation is based on the “complicated diagnosis” by her doctors adding that her medical team would not clear her for the “extended lengthy flight” to South Africa, or for “doing a rigorous show right after.”
