Last year he lost his sight due to the numerous surgeries he had undergone, in what doctors described as drying up of the nerves that transmit light from the eye to the brain.

“The doctors call it optic atrophy. They say that the optic nerves dried up,” Big Kev wrote on his Facebook page on December 3, 2016 when he announced losing his sight.
