The last time we at Kiss 100 heard about Jimmy Gait, he was well on his way to India for treatment for the disease that he claimed had been ailing him.
Before that he had taken to his Youtube page to share with his fans what his symptoms were and he claimed the rare condition meant he could no longer sing as his vocal chords had been affected.
FOR A LONG TIME, I’VE NOT BEEN ABLE TO TALK TO YOU (FANS). I HAVEN’T BEEN ON SOCIAL MEDIA FOR THREE MONTHS AND A LOT OF PEOPLE HAVE BEEN WONDERING ‘JIMMY GAIT ALIENDA WAPI. I’VE DECIDED TO SPEAK JUST TO LET YOU KNOW THAT I HAVEN’T BEEN WELL. I’VE BEEN BATTLING WITH A CONDITION AND GONE TO QUITE A NUMBER OF HOSPITALS AND I WAS ADVISED TO SEEK SPECIAL TREATMENT ABROAD.
I’M KINDLY ASKING FOR YOUR PrAYERS FROM ANYONE I’VE BLESSED IN ANY WAY THROUGH MY MUSIC. I BELIEVE THAT IT SHALL BE WELL
He has now resurfaced and taken to his Youtube account once more to share the new developments of his status with his fans.
Jimmy Gait’s problems were mainly due to acid reflux.
Acid reflux is a common condition that features a burning pain, known as heartburn, in the lower chest area. It happens when stomach acid flows back up into the food pipe. Gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) is diagnosed when acid reflux occurs more than twice a week.
