After weeks of being hospitalized with COVID-19, Jeremih will finally be released from the hospital on Friday (Dec. 4), according to his close friend Chance The Rapper.
On Thursday (Dec. 3), the Coloring Book emcee took to Twitter to reveal that he had spoken to Jeremih for the first time in weeks. “I am filled with praise right now. I just heard my brother Jeremih’s voice on the phone for the first time in almost a month,” he tweeted. “He will be out the hospital tomorrow. We all give glory to the father in Jesus name.”
In a follow-up tweet, he added, “Thank you to the medical staff at Northwestern and thank you to everyone who held him up in prayer even when it seemed so grim. We are a testimony.”
Last month, Hitmaka and 50 Cent posted on social media asking for fans to pray for Jeremih. They revealed that he had contracted Coronavirus and was in the intensive care unit in a Chicago hospital.
“I need everyone to pray for my brother @jeremih. This message is posted with his mother’s blessings,” the “Sexy Lady” rapper said in a post. He also posted additional messages to his Instagram Story. “We need that energy [prayer emoji]… Pray for my brother. He gone shake back @jeremih,” he wrote.
REVOLT previously reported that Sean “Diddy” Combs and Chance were able to help get the “Birthday Sex” singer the best doctors available to help with his diagnosis. “He’s still in ICU right now,” said Adam Smith, who works closely with Jeremih. “But we do have the best of the best working on him. We had a lot of people in the entertainment capacity that we reached out to, that helped us with their resources. Chance The Rapper has been super helpful. He’s been connecting us with a lot of the doctors. We connected with Puff, he connected us with his entire team at UCLA that he works with.”
A few days later, Jeremih’s family released a statement saying that he was taken off the ventilator and transferred out of the ICU.
