On Sunday afternoon, 50 gave fans some hope regarding Jeremih’s situation, letting his followers know things were looking up following an announcement that was initially very bleak.
“Thank you for praying for my boy Jeremih he is responsive today, doing a little better,” he wrote on Twitter, posting a picture of the singer.
This update comes after news of Jeremih’s hospitalization, which was followed by further reports elaborating on the seriousness of his condition. Fans first learned of this news from some of Jeremih’s closest friends and collaborators in the music industry, who posted on social media asking for prayers and well wishes for the singer. Chance The Rapper shared with fans that Jeremih “is like a brother” to him.
“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 tweeted. “I believe in the healing power of Jesus so if you can for me please please say a prayer over him.”
Chance and Jeremih previously collaborated on their 2016 mixtape “Merry Christmas Lil’ Mama” and its 2017 revamp “Merry Christmas Lil’ Mama Re-Wrapped.”
Philly rapper, Meek Mill also gave his well-wishes for the “Don’t Tell ‘Em” singer, tweeting:
Jeremih made an appearance on Meek’s song titled “Dangerous,” back in 2018.
Sources close to the situation told TMZ that Jeremih was on a breathing ventilator within the ICU where he’s currently being treated at. Apparently, his condition had recently gotten worse. There’s no word quite yet on how long Jeremih had been diagnosed with Coronavirus or when he was even infected. Luckily, from 50’s update, it seems like things are moving in the right direction.
