Earlier in the week, a representative for Jeremih’s family told CNN that the virus had “viciously attacked his body,” and that they wanted to remind others that “COVID-19 is real and not to be taken lightly. It’s important for people infected to quarantine and let their families and friends know ASAP. There’s no shame in contracting COVID-19, and people that have it need to be responsible and considerate of others.”
“Please if you can take a second to pray for my friend Jeremih, he is like a brother to me and he’s ill right now,” Chance the Rapper wrote on Twitter last Saturday afternoon (Nov. 14) when the news of Jeremih’s condition first broke. “I believe in the healing power of Jesus so if you can for me please please say a prayer over him.”
“pray for my boy Jeremih he’s not doing good this covid shit is real,” 50 Cent said on the same day.
