There has been speculation that American singer, songwriter, and record producer, Stevie Wonder is suffering from kidney failure and has begun dialysis.
Essence, a beauty magazine reports that the musical legend is currently battling serious but manageable health issues.
Stevie Wonder’s representatives disclosed to Detroit Free Press that Wonder is “doing better now than he was a couple of months ago.”
A longtime friend of the singer, Joan Belgrave who is also a singer said to reporters “He’s got some health challenges, but he doesn’t want a big PR thing out of this. He’s in great spirits. You would never know anything is going on. That’s how he wants it, and that’s how he wants to keep it.”
Several other friends who preferred their identities undisclosed also confirmed the news.
The singer, 69, has still been performing and fulfilling his engagements in recent months, choosing to travel with a medical team. He will be performing a pair of concerts in London and Dublin in the coming days.
