Solange, 31, did not specify what disorder she is being treated for. According to the National Institutes of Health, such disorders could relate to the autonomic nervous system, which controls involuntary actions, and could cause blood pressure and heart problems and trouble breathing.
“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 than there with my family to bring in 2018 with you.......but I give you my ABSOLUTE WORD I will come back with AfroPunk and deliver this performance.”
Solange also thanked the festival and others, which she said knew about her health but kept it private.
“I can’t thank AfroPunk enough for their support, and to all of the other festivals this past summer/fall who have known about my health, kept it confidential, and gone out of their way to make me feel supported while doing these shows.”
In November, Solange canceled a concert in Tallahassee, Florida, citing a medical condition.
“As a 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,” Solange wrote.
