Update: Official Statement on Polo of TCB

polo2

As we reported yesterday, Polo, of the acclaimed go-go band TCB, was rushed to the hospital after a show on Saturday night. Though details are still vague TCB's official blog posted filled in some of the blanks with the following statement this morning:

In the early morning hours of April 11th during our show at The CFE our friend Reggie (Polo) complained about not feeling well and it was decided that he should go home. On his way home his condition didn't improve so he was taken to Greater Southeast Hospital were he went into a coma. He was then taken to Washington Hospitol Center where he has been since Sunday morning fighting for his life. So as of today... POLO IS NOT DEAD! Out of respect for his family we are only passing on information we get from them.

The situation is very serious and it's been hard just even listening to our music. The band had a meeting Sunday night and everyone was briefed on Polo's condition and they collectively decided to perform at the LePearl out of respect for Polo. In reality he has suffered a serious trauma and best case senerio it'll be a very long road to any recovery. We respect the families decisions whatever they may be and we always hope for the best. So as of right now TCB will do what Polo has done all his life...HUSTLE and GRIND. He left us with his dream to watch over it for him. He made sure we all could eat. He changed the game up as with everything he's done. So to not continue to be TCB would be disrespecting the sacrifice and hustle Polo made to see TCB what it is now. We're pulling for our friend. We don't want to talk about what if's, but for right now, Polo is still with us. Just pray for him y'all.

    My prayer goes out to his family whatever the reason may have been that Polo is in the condition God is his only
    judge and he gives second, third, and many more chances let's all come together and pray that he we give Polo another chances because he is a somebody father(maybe) son, nephew, brother,cousin and best friends and youth looks up to him as being a great Go-Go lead singer. May God Comtinue to bring him though this and is Family.

  • Shauney GotdaLuvda B

    Hello Everyone!

    I am not sure whether Polo is still with us or not but I would like to pray for him that he is okay and that God watches over him simultaneously. I read people comments and I smile and frown at some of them. I just want everyone to know that before you make a comment on a serious issue like this, think about the people that you have lost or the people that you are destined to lose in life. Doesnt it hurt? Doesnt it bring emptiness to your heart? How can we speak negativity into the air like that...I pray for Polo and i pray for the ones that continue to have so much hatred in their heart.
