On Tuesday, the legendary R&B singer and current radio host updated fans on his current condition and thanked those who have been sending prayers his way.

In a post on Twitter, he wrote, “A very humble thank you for the prayers my @WBLS1075NYC family. I’m alive, awake, on the mend. Submissively grateful!#AllPraiseisDuetoAllah. I’ll share more of my health experience soon in hopes to encourage us all to stay on top of our #HealthandWellness #GoSeetheDoctor.”

Since the summer, Al B. Sure! has shared that he’s had health issues and posted multiple photos of himself before he’s gone into surgery, but has not been specific about the health problems he’s going through.

In an August Instagram post, he wrote, “Waking up daily to monitors, wires and machines keeping you stable is a new experience. I have a very humbling, newfound respect for the #Nurses #RN’s & #Doctors that are are on the #frontline and there around the clock making certain that all is well.”

Whatever medical issues he’s going through, hopefully, he recovers fully.
