Solange Knowles has canceled her New Year’s Eve gig at the AfroPunk festival in South Africa, blaming health issues. The singer revealed in an Instagram post that she has been dealing with an illness.
“The past five months I have been quietly treating, and working through an Autonomic Disorder. It been a journey that hasn’t been easy on me” she wrote.
According to the Mayo Clinic, autonomic nerve disorders affect the autonomic nervous system, which controls a person’s involuntary functions.
“Symptoms are wide-ranging and can include problems with the regulation of heart rate, blood pressure, body temperature, perspiration, and bowel and bladder functions,” says the Mayo Clinic’s website.
Other symptoms include fatigue, lightheadedness, feeling faint or passing out, weakness and cognitive impairment.
Knowles, 31, younger sister of superstar Beyoncé, had been set to headline the festival in Johannesburg, which will run from December 30 to January 1. The singer wrote on Instagram that she had struggled with finding the words to describe her condition.
