August Alsina along with Tamar Braxton, Denniss Rodman, Stormy Daniels, Manny Mua, Kim Coles, Cj Perry, and Frankie Muniz, are cast members of the VH1 reality show, Surreal Life. The show launched in 2003 and hasn’t had a season on 16 years.
On last night’s episode the singer left viewers and fans wondering as he revealed his ‘new love’ and the ‘person teaching him about love’ during the final moments of the show. It appears as if the singer was coming out and professing his love to ‘Zu’, who is also a music artist. August has previously referred to Zu as his brother on social media posts.
It is obviously that he isn’t is actual brother by blood. Because of this fans are still confused whether or not Zu is his blood brother or close friend. It’s common in black culture and in the AAVE to refer to someone you are not related to but are closer than friends with as a sibling. In this case I believe it is safe to say that, August’s ‘brother’ is his boyfriend and that he isn’t comfortable yet with calling him his ‘boyfriend’ yet.
