Keeping his spirits up, Steve Wonder, 70, has recently said that he has been feeling younger than his years after undergoing a successful kidney transplant in December 2019.
In a press conference announcing his new tunes, Wonder said that his health has been rapidly improving after developing a condition in 2019.
The 25-time Grammy winner said, “Let everybody know that I was blessed with a new kidney and that happened on December 6, 2019. Since I have been released from the hospital, I’ve had nurses that have made sure I have my medicine on time and I’m going to take it for as long as I have to — even if it’s for the rest of my life.”
“I feel great,” Wonder continued. “My voice feels great. I told my daughter, ‘Aisha, I’m going to be like five years younger than you now.’ I said, ‘I’m gonna go from being 70 to like 40.’ I feel like I’m about 40 right now and I just thank everyone for their prayers and love. I’m feeling great.”
The Master Blaster singer also went on to clear the speculations about his health last year.
He joked, “For all of the people that have been listening to these rumors — listen, if I’m feeling some kind of way, I’ll let you know. We don’t want to have misinformation. I am alive and well and looking forward to having a car that drives, so I can drive myself.”
Wonder opened up about his health issues on stage at the British Summer Time Festival in London last July. He told fans, “So what’s going to happen is this: I am going to have a kidney transplant at the end of September this year.”
