The singer has wowed his fans with his music and charms for a decade now. Some of his most popular tracks – No Love, Ghetto, Song Cry – are still on his fans’ playlists.
Like most famous personalities, August’s personal life has been in the media spotlight. The 30-year-old singer left his fans guessing after the latest episode of VH1’s The Surreal Life.
AUGUST ALSINA INTRODUCES “PERSON HE LOVES” IN THE SURREAL LIFE
A viral clip from The Surreal Life sees August introducing a special person in the end credits clip.
“Love showed up, but in a new way,” the Benediction singer says.
“I want to share that and really honor the person that I love and loves me back and is teaching me so much about love and healing.”
He continues to say how he wants to embrace the person he loves in front of the world and defy all of the social constructs about what love is supposed to look like.
Then, a man walks in and sits next to him as happy music plays in the background.
“I love you,” August says to the guy as they shake hands and embrace each other.
The clip left many fans confused about who the person August introduced was and how he is connected to him. While some thought that it was August’s boyfriend, others feel the man in question could be his brother or nephew.
WOTHAPPEN Media have reached out to August’s representative for clarification on the above. We are yet to receive a response at the time of writing.
