Ashanti Updates Fans On Condition After Testing Positive For COVID-19


After testing positive for corona-virus about a week ago, the songstress is giving fans an update on how she’s doing.

When the highly anticipated Verzuz battle between Ashanti and Keyshia Cole that was supposed to happen on December 12th was canceled, fans of the R&B songstresses were left wondering what went wrong. Hours later, the 40-year-old beauty informed fans via Instagram that she had tested positive for COVID-19, and was therefore unable to attend the battle.

“Hey y’all. Just wanted to say thank you so much for all of your thoughts and prayers,” she captioned a photo of herself smiling. “I’ve gotten so many calls, texts, emails and DMs checking in on me and my family and I’m super grateful for that. I’m feeling much better.”

She also briefly discussed her parents’ health, both of whom also tested positive for the virus. “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 still filled with gratitude and love.” She added, “Merry Christmas Eve.”

On Dec. 12, the day that Ashanti was supposed to face-off with Keyshia Cole in a Verzuz battle, Ashanti revealed she had tested positive for COVID-19. “Hey y’all. I can’t believe I’m saying this, but I tested positive for COVID-19,” she wrote on IG. “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 out.”

Despite the let down, Verzuz announced that the battle had been rescheduled for Jan. 9. “We apologize to our incredible audience!” Verzuz wrote on IG. “Get well soon, Ashanti. Wear a mask, stay inside and take COVID-19 seriously. It’s truly affecting our community.”
