August Alsina had a scary moment when he collapsed on stage and slipped into a three-day coma a few months ago. Thankfully, the singer has made a speedy recovery, gone back to performing, and even released a new music video.
The “Testimony” artist hit up Power 105’s The Breakfast Club radio show, and opened up about how the health scare all went down. August revealed that he went into a coma because he had been overworking himself.
“It was a case of me just basically putting other people before myself, overworking myself, just really wanting it all and getting it all,” he explained.
However, he also admits that the coma taught him a lesson about slowing down.
“I don’t live in the moment. I miss everything,” he said. “So for that to happen to me, it was very, very humbling, but in the same breath, it was a sign of God saying, ‘You a king. Now go back and live as a king and do it the right way.’”
Naturally, questions about August and Nicki Minaj‘s romantic chemistry came up, and he shot down those rumors real quick, stating that they’re just good friends.
