Coumba Gawlo Seck, the Diva of Senegalese music, announced on Thursday, February 4, her withdrawal, for some time, from the music scene. She reveals that, a few months ago, she was the victim of an intestinal occlusion, she underwent surgery with an intestinal amputation and an intubation. This caused her damage to the vocal cords, preventing her from singing for a while.

Senegalese singer-artist Coumba Gawlo Seck withdrew from the music scene for health reasons. It was in a video posted on her channel You Tube that the Diva announced the news. “Dear friends, dear fans, as you look at me throughout Senegal, Africa and the world, it is with great sadness that I come to announce my withdrawal from the music scene due to health problems. It’s going to surprise you that I’m talking about it because, in Africa, we have to hide everything. But I think no, you have to talk to your fans, you have to talk to the people so they can understand. In fact I withdraw from the music scene for a while since at the moment I am unable to sing sometimes even to speak. A few months ago, I had a bowel obstruction surgery. My bowel was amputated by a metre and a few. And it turned out that when I got out of this surgery, I actually give a lot of thanks to God for getting out, the doctors diagnosed that the tube that was put in my throat, because I was intubated, caused damage to my vocal cords, preventing me from singing for a long time sometimes even talking. In light of this, I am here today to inform you that, for a moment, I am going to withdraw from music,” she said in a hoarse voice.
Despite everything, the Senegalese singer is keen to stay in touch with her fans. “You have recently seen that I have offered you my last video clip “Borom Ndame” and through my other actions, particularly in the context of the fight against violence against women, the education of children, scrupulous respect for human rights, I could continue to keep in touch with you and continue to keep that flame and carry strong messages,” she said. It thus renders its fans on its platforms such as Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and its YouTube channel, among others.
