Stars Send Jeremih Well Wishes During His Ongoing COVID Battle

Jeremih Leaves the ICU as the singer battles COVID-19: Stars and Friends send well wishes.

Jeremih is making great lengths in his battle with COVID-19. The “Don’t Tell ‘em” singer has been struggling with the novel illness since being diagnosed in early November. By November 14th, the Chicago hospital where Jeremih was staying had shared that he had been placed on a ventilator in the ICU. He was taken off the ventilator on November 19 but remained in critical condition. His family was able to speak to CNN about his experience with the virus while he was in the ICU.

“His family would like to remind the world that COVID-19 is real and not to be taken lightly,” they said in a statement provided to CNN. “Also, 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.”

There was good news this week when it was reported that Jeremih had been transferred out of the ICU in order to make a full recovery. Celebrities and fellow artists went to social media to express their joy for the “Birthday Sex” singer. Fellow Chicago native and comedian Sherri Shepherd shared the news with a prayer hands emoji.

Another person to pay tribute to Jeremih was longtime collaborator Whale. The fellow rapper went to Twitter to celebrate Jeremih’s positive progress. The duo have recorded several songs together including 2019’s “On Chill,” 2011’s “That Way,” and 2015’s “That Body.” He called Jeremih’s recovery the “best news” and like Shepard, sent a prayer hands emoji.

Rap legend 50 Cent updated several fans on Jeremih’s status via Twitter. The “Candy Shop,” artist said that Jeremih is doing better day by day. Like Whale, 50 Cent has been collaborating with Jeremih for more than ten years. In 2010, they recorded the song “Down on Me,” which led to 2015’s “Get Low.” The older rapper even posted a photo on Instagram of him and Jeremih before the latter’s COVID diagnosis. 50 Cent has acted as a mentor and guide to younger rappers throughout the majority of his career. It is safe to say that the pair had this type of relationship.
