In an emotional post on Instagram, Tank, whose real name is Durrell Babbs, told his friends about something that was important to him. The artist, who is 45 years old, said that he is currently dealing with the sudden loss of hearing in his right ear and a major “loss of hearing in his left ear”. He is still shocked by his sudden diagnosis, but Tank is determined to use his problems to inspire other people.
Tank was honest in a touching video message about his health problems, including losing his hearing and having trouble staying balanced and not getting dizzy. He made it clear that these problems seemed to come up “out of nowhere,” which caught him off guard. Tank’s strong character shows through as he refuses to give up, even though these problems are very hard.
Tank said in a sincere voice, “I want to use my situation to encourage your situation.” He is sure that problems shouldn’t stop people from going after their goals and dreams. In order to get his hearing and balance back, he has been actively seeking medical advice and following through on treatments that have been recommended.
Tank’s lesson of strength shows how strong he really is. He was determined as he said, “It still hasn’t given me a reason to give up.” He promised his loyal fans that he would write about his trip, sharing his battle and giving updates on his progress.
In a later report, Tank talked about his most recent visit to the doctor and said that his hearing had been even worse that day. Even though there were problems, there was one good thing: a misaligned septum was found. Tank, who is always positive, took this news with a sense of fun because he thought that fixing the problem might make his singing better.
During a moving moment of reflection, Tank asked his fans to show their love and support while he was still fully enjoying it. He begged, “Don’t wait until I’m deaf or in a wheelchair.” Tank wants to enjoy the little things in life, like touching a flower or dancing without thinking about it, right now.
There has been an amazing amount of love and support for Tank from his fans and other artists. A lot of famous people, including Kevin Hart and Jamie Foxx, sent their thoughts and support to the R&B star. Zena Foster, Tank’s wife, jumped in and told him that they would get through this together.
Tank has had a very successful career. He has been nominated for five Grammys and written hit songs for acts like Aaliyah, Jamie Foxx, and Keyshia Cole. His story of losing his hearing is an inspiring lesson that even when bad things happen out of the blue, determination and the help of loved ones can get you through them.
