Chicago House legend Lil Louis has confirmed via his Facebook that he has suffered permanent damaged to his left ear after last month’s incident at Sankeys.
The house legend suffered damage to his hearing when someone from the club let off an airhorn right next to his ear as he performed a soundcheck at the Manchester club.
That airhorn caused permanent damage to the DJ/Producer’s hearing – but despite this Louis has said he will continue to perform, “I will not stop. Even if I can only hear with one ear, I’ll play twice as loud.” the legend bullishly said.
Appreciate all of your love.
Regretfully I have been told that I have suffered permanent damage in my left ear. Difficult as this has been to fathom, I’ve excepted this as my new normal.
I’ve considered walking away a thousand times… Until this morning when I was awakened by a voice that said, “You have a gift”.
Hearing that voice, I realised the gift God gave me was not in my ears. It was where I’ve heard everything I ever created first, in my mind.
So for my father and everyone who prayed for me, I move ONWARDS… I will not stop. Even if I can only hear with one ear, I’ll play twice as loud, so you can feel it…
