Nearly two weeks ago, we all were patiently waiting for Ashanti and Keyshia Cole to have their ‘Verzuz’ battle when it was postponed due to Ashanti contracting COVID-19! Ashanti shared a message on Instagram, explaining her condition and even still wanted to do Verzuz. She wrote, “Hey, y’all. I can’t believe I’m saying this, but I tested positive for COVID-19. I’m OK and not in any pain. I’m actually down to do the Verzuz from my house… We’re trying to figure it all out!!!”
Unfortunately, the highly awaited battle was postponed until January 9th. Many fans were upset and called out Ashanti for doing extensive traveling during the pandemic. If yall remember, she and rapper Flo Rida, and several of her family members and friends were in Antigua for her birthday from October 12th until November 9th. She also took a trip to Kenya just days before the battle.
After receiving much backlash, she cleared the air on Instagram live, which we reported as well. Ashanti advised she apparently hugged a family member who tested positive and was unaware of their status.
Today Ashanti gave us an update on the health of her and her family. On Instagram, she shared a picture with the caption, ”Hey y’all, I want to say thank you for all of your thoughts and prayers. I’ve gotten so many calls, texts, emails, and DM’s checking in on my family and me and I’m super grateful for that. I’m feeling much better… Thanking God that my mom is out of the hospital and my dad is doing well. Needless to say, this will be a very different Christmas… But filled with gratitude and love. Thanks, Bink, for dropping off the herbal teas. Merry Christmas Eve.”
We’re glad to hear the good news!
