Solange took to Instagram this morning to share some sad news.
Not only has she pulled out of her scheduled New Year’s Eve performance at Afro Punk in South Africa, but Solange also revealed that she’s been quietly battling an Autonomic Disorder for the last several months.
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…
Sometimes I feel cool, and other times not so cool at all.
It’s a complicated diagnoses [sic] , and I’m still learning so much myself, but right now, my doctors are not clearing me for such an extended lengthy flight, and doing a rigorous show right after.
Despite her current challenges, Solange vows to return to South Africa when she’s able to perform for her fans.
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…..as it is so extremely important to me to connect with the people who have so closely inspired me in so many ways.
I can’t thank Afro Punk 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.

We are definitely praying for you Solo…
